ALBUM: Havok – “Statues of Sisyphus”
LABEL: ViciSolum Productions
GENRE: Death Metal
I liked the first Havoc album, but it didn’t capture me as “Statues of Sisyphus” does. This is technical death metal that doesn’t get lost in a pissing contest. Don’t get me wrong, the musicians knows what they are doing and would outplay a lot of other bands, but they don’t let the technical parts take over the song writing. The songs remind me a lot of Anata, another good Swedish band with the same quality song writing. The music captures me with smart structures flavored with grove and melodies that enchants you.
♠Recommended tracks: Gray Eyes, Golden Skin / Linear Existence
