Havok- Time Is Up

Reviewsadmin1 Comment

Come, my children! Indulge in this glorious thrash metal! Denver, Colorado isn't exactly a mecca of thrash metal, but Havok still manages to string together some of the genre's best characteristics into one 11-track gauntlet. This LP rarely lets up, and dishes out one hard riff after another.

The songs are kind of limited in their mood and delivery--you know, maybe it could have used a longer or slower song to break things up. Still, Havok writes some really strong and intricate songs within the fast-paced and aggressive ideal they've stuck to.

It's definitely one of the more consistent and energetic metal albums I'll be reviewing this year.
