Formed in 1986 by guitarist Mark Weddington, bassist Mark Lyerly, drummer Michael James, and vocalist Binny Orrell, HAVOC would quickly become one of the strongest drawing acts on the N.C. club scene. In 1988 the band would release a six-song, self-titled EP that would be well received by fans, press, and industry. The foursome continued to maintain a steady draw and eventually recorded another four tracks.

Unfortunately, as the coming decade was drawing near HAVOC would become another one of those all too common stories of 80s rock causalities to the changing times.

Now three decades after their forming Heaven and Hell Records are re-issuing those HAVOC recordings for the first time ever on CD all re-mastered by Jamie King at The Basement Studios NC and re-packaged with new artwork by Steve Cobb, full lyrics, and never before seen photos. The pressing will be limited to 500.

This will surely be a blast from the past for those who were there, and a new discovery for those fans and collectors of 80s melodic rock worldwide.

HAVOC is:

Michael James - Drums, Backing Vocals
Mark Lyerly - Bass, Backing Vocals
Binny Orrel l- Lead Vocals
Mark F. Weddington - Guitars, Vocals, Backing Vocals

All songs written by Havoc
Produced by Havoc
Engineered by David Floyd
Recorded and mixed at Jay Howard Production Audio, Charlotte, NC
Remastered by Jamie King at The Basement Recordings NC
Winston-Salem, NC
Cover concept and artwork by Steve Cobb
Layout design by Chris Fergusen

I wasn't either. I'm on the Heaven & Hell mailing list and they sent out this press release about the re-issue. Figured some folks here would like 'em. They have a very strong Dokken-like sound. Nice harmonies and shredding guitar. I might be picking up a copy myself.

Does anyone recognize that creature on the cover? It looks kinda familiar, like a comic book character or a cartoon, but I can't place it.

Looks like the cover of one of those cheap, knock-off video games you find at flea markets. Y'know, for the "Polystation" or the "S-Box." Laughing very hard

I checked out a few songs on the tube and I have to say I am liking it. Thanks, Dave.

This is cool. I definitely agree with the Dokken influence/ comparison.

They don't sound too bad. I wouldn't mind getting it but I doubt I would unless I come across it somewhere down the line.
