Influenced by the likes of The Black Dahlia Murder, Death, Lamb of God, All Shall Perish, Deftones and Killswitch Engage, the band have solid roots in Death Metal and Metalcore, which is evident throughout their song writing.
HTKAZ quickly progressed into writing their own songs and started to find their own sound.
HTKAZ are keen to challenge the boundaries of the music genre and not follow any common paths or trends; producing only music they believe in. It is important for the band to write material that is challenging to play and each band member is motivated by the desire to improve in their own technical ability.
The band have slowly progressed throughout the last few years due to various time constraints. June 2010 saw a marked change in the band when Tam Crichton (vox) decided to leave the band which made a space available for Sian Linton (ex Forgotten Sound). Sian's experience from previous vocal roles in various other bands quickly stepped up the gear and Sian found his place very quickly.
HTKAZ has performed live in various venues across Fife and Edinburgh and have played along side many bands including, What Happens In Vegas, Here Lies A Warning, Grant Me Revenge, To Kill Achilles, Doubts Cast Shadows, Kingsbury Run and Heights.
The band are looking forward to getting a few more gigs under their belt in the coming months.
