Denver, CO quartet Havok does their part to recreate the sound and fury of the gilded age of thrash metal on the band’s sophomore endeavor TIME IS UP. Armed with a sensational six-string assault that spans the genre from Kreator to Lamb of God (“Scumbag in Disguise”) and a hearty helping of songwriting and attitudinal influence from the likes of Slayer, Testament, Exodus, and Death Angel (“Prepare for Attack”), this exuberant unit lets their thrash flag fly without reservation with a batch of predictably themed and composed songs whose durable execution and domineering spirit will have headbangers thrashing like athletes from the year 1987 in no time (“Fatal Intervention”).
