Havoc Unit  


Havoc Unit is the continuation of ... And Oceans, as that band decided (on their tenth anniversary) that they were switching styles and thus a name change ensued. The lineup is presumably similar to the last lineup of ... And Oceans, though exactly who is here and who plays what isn't clear -- keeping track of real member names in AO was always a major headache and they're doing us historians no favors here either. Anyway, on to the music -- while Oceans was more in the black metal department, sliding into experimentalism as their career progressed, here Havoc Unit have gone full-on industrial, futuristic, extreme metal, with the occasional sampling, plenty of clanky sound effects, but driven by intense harsh riffing and violent vocals that have always been part of the industrial metal scene. This isn't as over-the-top as, say, Anaal Nathrakh or The Axis Of Perdition, as everything is reigned in a bit more here -- perhaps a harsher Red Harvest is a better reference. Even though industrial metal has been around for awhile, this style still hasn't quite developed to its fullest potential, so there's an opportunity for bands like Havoc Unit to step up and take this style further.
