It is time to crank up the volume with Atrial’s album, ‘Havoc’. So, grab a beverage and limber up your neck for some heavy head banging!
Atrial have found their sound with this album, and you can really hear the Slipknot influence. The album starts off with ‘Wide Awake’ which has some serious early, brutal Slipknot and Trivium vibes that will have you screaming along and giving yourself a nice bit of whiplash. Their title track, ‘Havoc’, is a monstrous masterpiece reminiscent of the early 2000’s, with it’s wonderful riffs, in your face screams, and complimenting guitar solo. Although this album is comparatively small, only containing five tracks, this does not take away from the quality of the album, proving that quality is definitely more important than quantity! Each song gives something new, whilst keeping the pace and tone of the album consistent. ‘Havoc’ is nicely topped off with their song, ‘Killing You Inside’, which gives the impression of a collusion of Korn, Slipknot, and Trivium combining forces to produce a heavy hitting, and brutal track.
All-in-all, the album is an example of fantastic song writing and perfectly complimenting vocals, a hit from start to finish, and will be a permanent addition to my personal playlist! I look forward to seeing where Atrial go next.
