5.0 out of 5 stars Well, what can I say? August 3, 2009
By Eric H
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I will be frank (even though I am mostly just Eric) when I say that I bought this album when a friend displayed them to me and expressed his desire to purchase this album when he was able to get his hands on some money. So, being the one to ruin things, I bought it before he could; thereby ruining his chances of being the first in our group to have the record.

And it's actually really good.

Now I have been a fan of heavy metal music for some time now, and I have a fairly in depth knowledge of the various bands and musical entities that comprise it, especially in the vain of thrash metal. Normally, I am usually not quite so enthusiastic about the newer wave of thrash metal bands that are currently riding it's wave (Warbringer, Toxic Holocaust, Mantic Ritual, etc), mainly due to my indifference to their lack of originality and creativity - it's mostly just bands tredding old ground that knowledgable metalheads know enough about and do not need to hear once more - there is no need to sail up the Missouri River in search of a coastline, gentleman! Lewis and Clark beat you to it!

Well anyway, Havok is probably the first band in this second wave thrash that I actually like despite, or perhaps in spite, of all the reasons previously stated. This is thrash metal. No messing around, no foolishness, just machine-gun riffs and excessive amounts of pessimism. And it works to the satisfied smile I usually only emit when someone falls down a steep flight of stairs. The songs are greatly composed: clocking in at around 5 minutes, which seems to be the perfect length for most metal songs. The lead work is surprisingly well done, as it is not too shreddy but brings its own creativity to the table. And, unfortunately, the bass mostly gets left in the back of the room.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thrashing Like a Maniac................ October 14, 2009
By SMH
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
There is a reason why real thrashers liked and still like the early eighties speed metal and these boys know how to fire that same cannon. I am 45 years old and this CD had me jumping around my house like the mad man that I only know.

Bottom Line = Super Good Old School Thrash played with Pride and Respect of the style!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Is it just me or does it feel like 1987 in here? June 29, 2009
Format:Audio CD
For the most part, good, old fashioned thrash metal died off not far into the '90's, giving way to grunge and groove. There were a handful of bands that attempted to carry the torch into the new millenium but thrash had become an underground genre, a thought that would've been absurd just a few years earlier. In the early 2000's however, the fast, aggressive and downright intense form of metal began making a comeback. The so called "thrash revival" was not really fronted by a single band but was highlighted by the likes of Evile, Warbringer, Bonded By Blood and Municipal Waste.

Somehow, a young band from Colorado missed the list...

Hailing from Denver, the thrash quartet Havok rarely garnered much attention outside of their local fanbase. After releasing a few demos and EP's, the band was finally given the chance they deserved when offered a record deal by Candlelight Records. Enter Burn.

Havok's official debut shows me one thing in particular. All they needed was an opportunity and they would deliver. And they sure as hell did. The album begins with a rather cliche instrumental intro that, while not breaking any ground, is a nice way to ease the listener into the thrashing they are about to receive. Just less than half of the songs on the album are featured on previous Havok releases. They were great then and are even better now. The main riff in The Root of Evil is classic and stands out as one of the best I've heard. Identity Theft contains some solid (and true) lyrics. The Disease and Category of the Dead finally receive the production values they deserved and To Hell sounds great now that it's polished up. Then we have the new songs...

Simply put, Havok's new songs sound amazing.

5.0 out of 5 stars High Energy, even better live! May 31, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Saw these guys in the Twin Cities the other night playing in front of Primal Fear... Wow, they blasted the paint right off the walls! Not only that, but one of the guitar players didn't make the trip, so it was a three piece outfit. Didn't matter at all, as they tore the place down. These guys are so young, but so talented and very driven to bash your head in with great modern thrash sound and attitude.

As a side note, I went up to the guys in the band after the show to congratulate them and they were very approachable and really appreciated the compliments. Get this cd and help support these guys!

4.0 out of 5 stars Throw them in the Afterburner!!!! April 8, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have to say that us metal fans truly live in a golden age where true metal has come back with vengeance to spit venom and destroy nu metal once and for all.Havok's Burn is not an album to be forgot as it screams 1980's vintage thrash with the great production of today's technology.It's like they blended all the elements of my favorite thrash and fused them seemlessly without sounding corny or a rip-off.Take a listen to Wreckquiem as it starts with an intro similar to Fade to Black from Metallica(and i say similar only because of the way it was written not because it sounds anything like it)and opens up your senses to be pummeled for the next 40 minutes of mayhem.I really enjoyed "The Root of all evil" it has a driving metal riff that reminds me of "Into The Pit" from Testament but with layered harmonies. I know people(especially older ones) are skeptical about this new wave of younger kids playing an older style but with songs like"Morbid Symmetry" and "Ivory Tower" you will think it's the 80's all over again.The main thing I liked about this album was the variation in vocals. Some metal bands think they have to scream their ass off and have double bass blast beats every song in order to be accepted. This vocalist screams as well as sings(and not emo singing)while not making the clean parts sound too off-putting yet angst-ridden enough to tear your face right off.The bass playing is also really great which is a change for most people as most bass players are drowned out by the dueling guitar or awesome drum work. Overall I give it four stars it is very well done though not very original but, who cares it is good enough on its own merits and talents and it will have you thrashing like a maniac.
