AGGRESSIVE PERFECTOR - Havoc At The Midnight Hour (12" LP)
United Kingdom | Speed/Thrash/Heavy
Following up their 2016 release Satan's Heavy Metal, Aggressive Perfector's debut full length, Havoc at the Midnight Hour, finds the English trio in resolutely evil form as they take a major step forward on their path of destruction. Embracing a wealth of haunted sounds and textures, this sepulchral slab of metal conjures an atmosphere rich in the romantic repugnance of horror's past masters which it uses the setting for a 37 minute nightmare of nocturnal menace, occult fascination and bloody vengeance. Summoning the ghosts of Metal past - Tank, Slayer, Venom and Mercyful Fate all playing a part - Havoc... fixates on the nuclear fury of an apocalyptic future, from which it culls new ways to pervert the course of heavy metal in the present.
