High-Octane UK Metal rockers ‘Cry Havoc’ unleash their greatly anticipated debut EP ‘New Life’ on Monday 15th April 2013, available through all good online outlets.
Flaunting an invigorating fusion of heavy metal, crafted by the power of Pantera, the swagger of Skid Row, and the attitude of Guns ’N’ Roses in their prime, Cry Havoc are here to spread their own concoction of Heavy Metal to the masses in 2013!
Born and bred in British South, Cry Havoc are a group of degenerates dead set on conquering the UK heavy metal scene. Comprised of the vocal power of Gavin Bolt, Tristan Gaskell cutting up guitar riffs, Chris ‘Crypt’ Lawman supplying Rhythm Guitar, Billy Kirk on bass, and Eliott Lipscombe pounding on the beats, the energetic five-piece have already created quite a stir for their raucous live shows, as Metal Hammer reviewer, Dom Lawson, concurs “Frontman Gav is running from one side of the stage to the other, bare-chested and swivel-eyed, and generally going berserk. [They] are treating their performance as if it were a headlining slot at Wembley.” Further, commenting about the bands’ recent explosive sold-out set at Hammerfest III, Lawson adds that “Cry Havoc churned out a splendidly raw and brutish din”. Cry Havoc’s live shows have also been described as an explosion of the senses, bringing the band to be described as the ‘illegitimate child of Pantera and Guns N’ Roses’. Highly driven on Sex, Jägermeister, and Rock N’ Roll, they own the stage—and no one can prise it from them!
With the live side of Cry Havoc firmly accomplished, and with recent successful supports with Gus G’s Firewind, The Dirty Youth, The Defiled, Revoker, Malefice, Warrior Soul, Jettblack, Voodoo Six, and Romeo Must Die, the metal rockers decided to hit the recording studio to begin work on their much anticipated debut record. The band headed to the renowned Nott-In-Pill Studio to lay down four tracks with the prestigious producers Martyn “Ginge” Ford and Matthew Bond, who have previously worked with Bullet For My Valentine, Slipknot, Trivium, and Skindred. Cry Havoc came out the studio armed with their stunning debut EP ‘New Life’. Loaded with crushing riffage capable of bursting arteries, the record is ram-packed with contagious hooks, driving rhythms, and ravenous riffs, and is an absolute must for any true heavy metal fan!
