“I am the way, I am the first, I am the end,” is the guttural refrain from the pivotal track Victim off of Givensix’s 2011 full length album Harvest. It’s a lyric that begs questions, demands attention, binds your feet and hands, and forces you to sing along. Blending time tested rock and roll songwriting techniques with progressive tones and hints of death core, Givensix isn’t your average metal band. Hailing from Flint, MI, they’ve forged their own sound, both dark and angry, yet somehow familiar, darkly comic and jaunty enough to make you wanna dance around or punch someone in the throat.
