The revival of Thrash Metal has become more and more prominent in recent years. Bands such as Warbringer, Toxic Holocaust, Lazarus A.D. and others, have raised Thrash Metal back from the dead with flying colors. One band that should also be mentioned here is American Thrashers, Havok. With the release of their first album "Burn" in 2009, Havok broke through with a great record. While it did not exactly re-define the genre, it was still an acceptable debut. However, their second album "Time Is Up" is faster, heavier and more technical; this is a thrashterpiece.

While "Time Is Up" may not re-define Thrash Metal as well, but it still brings up the good days of Bay Area Thrash. The album opens with "Prepare For Attack", also a great way to open up the record I might add. Vocalist/guitarist David Sanchez has a perfect voice for this genre; not too brutal, yet not too clean either. His range, along with his screaming, are very well done.

The rest of the album is just as strong. My standout tracks include "Covering Fire", "The Cleric", "Killing Tendencies", the title track and "D.O.A.". Going back to David Sanchez, his scream on "D.O.A." sounds almost identical to Tom Araya on "Angel Of Death". Drummer Pete Webber has some nice and technical drumming throughout, along with bassist Jesse De Los Santos. Lead guitarist Reece Scruggs has some incredible parts within the album.

"Time Is Up" is a worthy addition to your Thrash collection, old and new. If you enjoy listening to Thrash Metal even in the slightest, check out "Time Is Up". You will not be disappointed.
