The Spin: Havok and Puget are most commonly know for their success in AFI, but it looks as though they decided to try yet another musical direction with XTRMST. If you dig down-tuned riffage coupled with aggressive vocals and blistering drums, XTRMST is right what you need to get your week kick-started. While there is little information behind the act at this point in time, be sure to stay tuned to our Facebook and Twitter pages for all the latest from Havok and Puget.
