Havok: Point of No Return
4 out of 5 skulls

Point of No Return

Havok’s sophomore release, Time Is Up, was one of the more enjoyable thrash albums of 2011. It’s wasn’t pushing boundaries, but damn it if it […]

Impiety: Ravage & Conquer

Ravage & Conquer

It seems as though (through their 20+ year existence), Impiety have been struggling with their identity the past couple of releases. I’d venture to say […]

Surreal Overdose

Advent Of...

Just a few short months since the release of the epic, single-track Worshippers of the Seventh Tyranny, Impiety are back at it with another helping […]
