Havok Debut “Phantom Force” Music Video


Havok have lifted the veil on an official music video for their new song “Phantom Force“. The band had K. Hunter Lamar direct the clip, which arrives as the first single from their new album “V“. As previously reported, that album was engineered, mixed and mastered by Mark Lewis (Cannibal Corpse, The Black Dahlia Murder).

The band’s lead guitarist Reece Scruggs said of their intention with the track:

“Somewhere in the middle of writing ‘V‘ we all came together and made the decision that we needed a full blown face peeler track. I remember David saying ‘Reign In Blood tempo’, so I came up with something almost immediately and sent it over to the guys.

And aside from some subtle stylistic details it stayed pretty true to that original concept. ‘Phantom Force‘ as a first single will assure our fans and skeptics that we haven’t lost a step in making vicious, straight forward, non-gimmicked heavy metal.”

Vocalist/guitarist David Sanchez added:

“‘Phantom Force‘ is about the mysterious deaths that happen during sleep paralysis in the Hmong people. These people fled their war-torn homeland and could not seem to escape a terrifying fate. The goal with this video was to visually represent the fear and panic that people must’ve felt just before their sudden nocturnal demise. Watch at your own risk…”
