Havok Premiere New Song And Music Video “Phantom Force”

Colorado-based thrashers Havok are starting the campaign for their upcoming new studio album “V”, which will be released worldwide on May 1st, 2020 via Century Media Records, today with the launch of its first single…

Check out the track “Phantom Force” in a video directed by K. Hunter Lamar / Digital Myle below. Havok lead guitarist Reece Scruggs commented about the song as follows: “Somewhere in the middle of writing “V” we all came together and made the decision that we needed a full blown face peeler track. I remember David saying “Reign In Blood tempo”, so I came up with something almost immediately and sent it over to the guys. And aside from some subtle stylistic details it stayed pretty true to that original concept. “Phantom Force” as a first single will assure our fans and skeptics that we haven’t lost a step in making vicious, straight forward, non-gimmicked heavy metal.”

And Havok guitarist/vocalist David Sanchez added the following in regards to the lyrics of the track: “Phantom Force” is about the mysterious deaths that happen during sleep paralysis in the Hmong people. These people fled their war-torn homeland and could not seem to escape a terrifying fate. The goal with this video was to visually represent the fear and panic that people must’ve felt just before their sudden nocturnal demise. Watch at your own risk…”
