Heaven Shall Burn: launch "Land Of The Upright Ones", 1st track off "VETO" via a sound puzzle, reveal cover
Do you fancy hearing a first brand new track entitled "Land Of The Uprising Ones" off HEAVEN SHALL BURN's upcoming album "VETO"? Then head to: http://www.landoftheuprightones.com
However, this time you will need to do a bit of work in order to get a hold of your download: We chopped up the song in 8 pieces and will leave it up to you to work out the right sequence. Once you solved the puzzle you can download the song for free - and don't forget to tell your friends you did it.
Maik Weichert (guitars) about the song: "The song is dedicated to Thomas Sankara, a relatively unknown revolutionary whose fate is closely linked to Burkina Faso which can be translated to "Land of upright/honest people" or "Land of honest people". It's a very heavy track."
"Land Of The Upright Ones" is the first song revealed from HEAVEN SHALL BURN's new album "VETO" that is scheduled to be released on the following dates:
Germany/Austria/Switzerland/Norway: April 19th, 2013
Rest of Europe: April 22nd, 2013
Australia / New Zealand / Finland: April 26th, 2013
USA/Canada: April 30th, 2013
The track listing reads as follows:
2. Land Of The Upright Ones
3. Die Stürme Rufen Dich
5. Hunters Will Be Hunted
6. You Will Be Godless
9. Like Gods Among Mortals
10. 53 Nations
11. Beyond Redemption
The cover of "VETO" shows the John Collier painting of Lady Godiva, (c.1898). Maik Weichert comments as to why this piece of art works perfectly with the underlying concept of the album: "It as an icon regarding the fight for social justice. The image also represents a contemporary issue: i.e. today's leading class being isolated from the people and the conflicts arising from that. It is also a great way to show our fans how current problems and topics can be reflected and derived from historical artworks."
