Havoc Theory is three-piece metal band from Pittsburgh, PA. Through a fusion of 80s thrash metal and newer heavy and death metal, Havoc Theory has created a powerful, heavy sound with a vintage 80s feel. They've brought back what made metal stand out and have added in what makes metal so brutal today.
Havoc Theory was started by bassist Greg Nicosia and guitarist Steve Devlin. After the band's first official show, Steve left the band to pursue other ventures. After replacing Steve the band continued growing and playing shows. After an eventful run with the Emergenza Festival of Music in 2006, Havoc Theory was completely disbanded due to irreconcilable differences.
Currently, the band is comprised of founders Greg Nicosia and Steve Devlin on bass and guitar respectively, and Matt Lesondak. Havoc Theory has preforms regularly in the Pittsburgh area and has worked with National Acts like Mushroomhead, Buckethead, Joe Stump, Mobile Deathcamp and Valient Thorr.
In the summer of 2009, Havoc Theory recorded their first demo album at Mr. Smalls studio. This self-financed album is a testament to the band's progress since it began. It features 7 tracks heavy, thrashy tracks and a bonus acoustic track. We are currently in the process of producing a 2 track EP at Soundscape Studios in Mckeesport, PA with the help of Dave Blaney, our sound engineer.
