The German powerhouse HEAVEN SHALL BURN were one of the first groups to ultimately shatter the boundaries that stood between the death metal and hardcore genres. Now they have triumphantly returned with Deaf To Our Prayers, which is set for a September 5th release. The album is a stunning portrayal of sheer aggression and musical technicality that will quickly catch the attention of any extreme music fan. With this effort the dynamic quintet have undoubtedly proved once again that they are taking metal in a new direction that knows no limitations.
Lambgoat.com officially debuted the new track “Stay The Course” this week and you can check it out by clicking on the link below.
Deaf To Our Prayers is the long-awaited follow-up to HEAVEN SHALL BURN’s highly acclaimed album Antigone, which was their first release to garner worldwide praise. The new disc was recorded and mixed by renowned producer Jacob Hansen (Mercenary, Raunchy) in Denmark and it quickly evolved into the group’s most brutal offering yet. Guitarist Maik Weichert further describes his thoughts on the recording process: “Right from the beginning of the writing process we had the vision to record a raw and more direct album. I think Deaf To Our Prayers is a lot more brutal than our previous offerings while still retaining some mid-tempo passages. It’s simply 100% HSB!”
HEAVEN SHALL BURN plays with the utmost sincerity and urgency touching upon topics concerning people’s behavior towards the disabled, veganism, war and racism.
The combination of melodic death metal and crushing metalcore has never been delivered with such conviction.
“A cognet cocktail of metalcore, thrash, frustration and disenchantment.”
