Based on a decade's worth of ruling hard in high tops, it would seem thrash metal's younger generation is playing for keeps. Well, thrashers, moshers, and circle pit maniacs the greatest of the great has arrived in Havok's new full-length, Conformicide, their first for Century Media Records. Havok's Conformicide is undoubtedly their Master of Puppets or Rust in Peace moment, filled with a set of tunes that fume, spit, and storm high-end, pit-slaying thrash. With Conformicide, Havok prove they're undoubtedly thrash metal scions, ready for their time in the spotlight. "This band was essentially started as a nod to the old-school greats," Sanchez says. "When they all retire, Havok will be there to fill the thrash metal void. That's why this band exists."
