Havok "Unnatural Selection" CD

Unnatural Selection
Released: June 25, 2013

Denver Colorado’s HAVOK end the song “Give Me Liberty… or Give Me Death” with the Thomas Jefferson quote:

“When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.
When the government fears the people, there is liberty.”

The entirety of “Unnatural Selection” is bursting with a similar ferocity to the lead single, “Give Me Liberty…” that compliments their musicality, attitude and anger. Much like vintage Megadeth, HAVOK combines a yesteryear punk rock anger with a thrash metal attack typical of the genre’s zenith.

While vintage Megadeth is the starting point, HAVOK remain at the forefront of the current thrash metal genre with a fresh and talented approach. They out Megadeth, Megadeth. Slot HAVOK right alongside Anthrax, Overkill, Kreator and Testament.

The musicality of HAVOK is technical, yet enjoyable. The drums run like a high end, precision watch, keeping perfect beat for the raging and creative guitar work. HAVOK is guitarist/vocalist David Sanchez, bassist Mike Leon, guitarist Reece Scruggs, and drummer Pete Webber and they all rule on “Unnatural Selection”.

Nice cover of Black Sabbath's "Children of the Grave".
