BECAUSE NOT ALL RETRO-THRASH IS BAD

170

Vince and I are seeing Havok tonight for the first time (they’re opening for Primal Fear). I’m pretty stoked; I really dug their album, Burn, and only by the grace of the fact that SO MUCH GOOD STUFF came out in 2009 did it not make my year-end list. If all the retro-thrash bands sounded this good (as good as Revocation or Lazarus A.D., for that matter), I’d be considerably less inclined to bust their balls.

Here’s Havok’s video for “Morbid Symmetry,” from Burn. What an excellent song.

Burn is out now on Candlelight.
