In anticipation of the release of their upcoming new full-length, Time Is Up, Denver thrashers HAVOK today unveil part I of their in-studio video footage. Brought to you by Metal Injection, the video takes you behind the scenes of the recording process with commentary from the members. Check it out HERE.
The follow-up to HAVOK’s fiery Burn debut, Time Is Up, which is already reaping praise from critics, features ten tracks of meticulously crafted thrash metal anthems that transcend far beyond any run-of-the-mill rethash projects. Said Popdose of the offering: “This is easily the best thrash record of any type released since Toxic Holocaust dropped An Overdose of Death on us in 2008.” Added Metal Assault in a 9/10 review: “…Time Is Up will turn out to be one of the thrash releases of the year. A furiously energetic effort, presenting thrash metal exactly the way it should be. Get this album when it comes out and mosh to some Havok!” Rock Hospital called Time Is Up, “… a killer sophomore effort by four dudes who do justice to their musical forefathers. Cliff Burton would smile on this release,” while Metal Review agreed: “Havok’s purest intention is to thrash your face into a circle-pitted-pulp, and more often than not they’re wildly successful.”
Time Is Up will be released in North America on March 29 via Candlelight Records. For pre-order details visit Candlelight USA.
