Havok is an American thrash metal band from Denver, Colorado. Formed in 2004, their members currently consist of David Sanchez (Vocals/guitars), Mike Leon (Bass), Pete Webber (Drums), and Reece Scruggs (Lead guitar). Since signing with England's Candlelight Records, Havok have released two studio albums: 2009's Burn, and 2011's critically acclaimed, Time Is Up.
David Sanchez's love of thrash metal greats, like Metallica, Megadeth, and Slayer, led him to form Havok In December 2007, Havok sent a copy of their EP and a press kit to any metal label they could find. The EP had caught the ear of English extreme metal label, Candlelight Records, and soon after the band agreed to sign with them. On June 2, 2009 Havok released their full length debut, "Burn" The debut was received quite well in the metal community, but it did not yet break them into the global metal scene. After relentless touring in support of "Burn", Havok returned to the studio to record their sophomore effort.
On March 29, 2011 Havok released "Time Is Up". Their sophomore effort spread through the metal community, receiving strong reviews from critics and fans alike. It became a defining album in what has come to be known as the New Wave of Thrash Metal scene. The success of "Time Is Up" has led the band to major tours opening for bands like Sepultura , Death Angel , Anthrax , The English Dogs , The Casualties , Goatwhore , 3 Inches of Blood , Skeletonwitch and Exhumed. 2012 was wrapped up for the band by playing the first Barge to Hell cruise featuring bands At the Gates , Behemoth , Mayhem , Possessed , Exodus and Sacred Reich to name a few.
Formed in 2006, TROGLODYTE draws musical influences from the likes of CARCASS, OBITUARY and ORIGIN also finding inspiration from 70's drive-in horror fare such as THE LEGEND OF BOGGY CREEK, THE PIT and NIGHT OF THE DEMON. The band has craved/slashed out it's own niche as the world's first (and only) Bigfoot death-metal band.
Dogs Of Delphi
Southern heavy groove-metal band Dogs of Delphi combines earth shattering heavy metal hits and chops with ass shaking grooves. Based out of Kansas City Missouri, they are most often described as a combination of Black Sabbath, Clutch and Corrosion of Conformity. Singer Adam Vinck brings a commanding stage presence to their high energy live show. His vocal style is reminiscent of early Neil Fallon with dark rhythmical flows. Bassist Michael Christopher (formerly of Primer 55) provides his heavy slamming bass sound while guitarist Todd James drives the music with incredible rhythm and leads. Drummer Jason Byrd (formerly of Cherry Wench with Todd James) brings his thunderous heavy technical style and experience to tie it all together into the intense live musical performance that this band is known for.
The Cast Pattern
We play down-tuned, heavy stuff in time signatures none of us really understand.
We have put out one album, had a million member changes, gone from a five-piece to a four-piece, and now we are writing our second full length. The end.
