Point of No Return
6/5/2012 - Review by: Greg Watson
Havok is an American thrash band from Colorado releasing a 4 song EP entitled "Point of No Return". The EP features two original tracks, "Point of No Return" and "From the Cradle to the Grave" as well as covers of Sepultura's "Arise" and Slayer's "Post Mortem/Raining Blood".
Havok is following in the footsteps of the resurgence of thrash metal and offer a brutal 4-song assault of pure, unadulterated thrash. The bands original tunes are old school thrash with an infusion of new thrash thrown in. The riffs are killer, very fast and groove-heavy with face melters aplenty. The rhythm section is nice and fat with plenty of double time drumming and chunky bass riffs to fill in everything like a tightly sealed virgin's legs on prom night. The vocals have a very raw, visceral feel to them very similar to Tom Araya from Slayer and feel at times as if they are being spat out with loathing and maliciousness.
The covers are done very well with a little bit of the band's own styling thrown in to make it sound their own. This EP is a must have for any thrash metal fan who is worth their weight in salt. Venture forth to pick up the "Point of No Return"!
