Stellenbosch, South Africa: having only really dipped a toe in the live scene since first emerging in 2017, the death-thrashers at Halvar are readying themselves for a greater presence in the near future. Today, Halvar introduces itself formally with the first single from an upcoming album; the single titled ‘Violent Intent’ as the first track from Welcome To Reality set for released on Saturday 06 October.
This first taste of what’s to come represents the Halvar‘s stylistic approach to metal in it’s broadest form; including a clean bridge, a savage breakdown, and two solos.
“‘Violent Intent’ highlights the internal fight we have with acts of violence in our human nature. How sometimes you have to fight yourself from just beating the shit out of someone or whatever. We chose it to be the first single because we all sort of agreed it’s the most brutal in-your-face song on the album. It’s the one that’s gonna leave you feeling totally fucked.” ~ Daniel Louw (guitar, Halvar)
We’ll be keeping a close eye on Halvar in the following weeks as we await more information on the live launch of the coming album. At this time we only know that it’ll be on Saturday 06 October at Aandklas in Stellenbosch.
