HAVOK: Denver Thrash Battalion To Kick Off North American Tour With Soulfly

Following their massive headlining tour this past Summer, Denver thrash battalion, HAVOK, will kick off another stretch of live assaults supporting Soulfly! Set to commence today in Dallas, the journey will level more than two dozen cities throughout the U.S. and Canada and includes two one-off dates supporting The Casualties.

HAVOK will be touring in support of their Unnatural Selection full-length, released earlier this year via Candlelight Records. Produced by Terry Date (Pantera, Overkill, Deftones) and mastered by James Murphy (Testament, Death), Unnatural Selection has raised the eyebrows of fans and critics nationwide for its punishing thrash attack. Both instrumentally and conceptually sophisticated, HAVOK have truly hit their mark with a sound that will please fans new and old. The album features ten new tunes, including the band’s rendition of Black Sabbath classic “Children of the Grave.” Gushes Fearnet.com “From the simple but effective songwriting and tight technical skills to rock-solid production and vintage-style album art, this record comes off like a newly-unearthed time capsule from the Big Four’s golden era.” Adds Thrash Hits, “Thrash is still very much alive, and the fact of the matter is that Unnatural Selection perfectly captures the essence of the legendary old-school thrash train of thought whilst maintaining the modern-day elements that are prevalent in metal today. With Unnatural Selection, it’s clearer than ever before that HAVOK live, breathe, and bleed thrash metal, and their passion for it oozes from every part of this album. The future’s in good hands.”

“…a contender for one of the best albums of this year because there are simply no flaws in the design…” – Metal Injection

HAVOK proudly carry the torch of everything awesome about the genre: irrepressible energy, flesh-singeing velocity, and razor-sharp anthems custom made for the purpose of shotgunning beers.” – MetalSucks

“Filled to the brim with headbang-inducing riffs, politically-charged lyrics and guitarist/vocalist David Sanchez’s snarl leading the way, Unnatural Selection would fit right in with Megadeth’s back catalog…. Wrap it all up with Terry Date behind the controls, and HAVOK just might be in contention for thrash album of the year.” – About.com

“With Unnatural Selection, HAVOK has distinguished themselves as the frontrunners of the New Wave of Thrash Metal movement.” – Sputnik Music
