Colorado-based thrashers Havok are back! After a whirlwind yet rewarding cycle for 2017’s “Conformicide” effort, the high-octane outfit have emerged from the studio victorious with their new album, “V”. Engineered, mixed, mastered by Mark Lewis (Cannibal Corpse, The Black Dahlia Murder, etc.) and showcasing stunning artwork – as can be seen above – by Eliran Kantor (Testament, Hatebreed, etc.), “V” will be released worldwide on May 1st, 2020 via Century Media Records.
Havok’s guitarist/vocalist David Sanchez checked in to comment about “V” as follows: “A lot of experimentation went into the writing and recording of “V”. The album offers the same intensity that we’re known for, but with a few twists that may surprise people. The music is dense with lots of different intertwining parts and we’re beyond excited to release our best-sounding record to date.”
