The German powerhouse HEAVEN SHALL BURN triumphantly return with Deaf To Our Prayers, which is a stunning portrayal of sheer aggression and musical technicality that will quickly catch the attention of any extreme music fan. The group’s new video for the track, “Counterweight,” was taken from their Summerbreeze 2006 festival performance that perfectly captures the band’s live intensity in front a rabid German crowd.

Maik Weichert (guitars) states: “Upon seeing the initial footage of this performance we immediately knew that it would make for a perfect promotional video. It was a really cool night with crazy fans and we are extremely proud to capture this special feeling. You can feel the energy and fun in every frame of the clip. We are sure that everybody who couldn’t make it to Summerbreeze will still be able to feel how special of a night it was for us. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.”
In December, HEAVEN SHALL BURN will co-headline the European Spirit tour with Caliban. Weichert comments: “Finally we get to a co-headlining tour with our good friends from Caliban! Many years ago we both played in a tiny club in front of less than 100 people, most of which were older than we were. Since that day every HSB/Caliban show has been a unique experience. We will continue this tradition on the upcoming Spirit tour and ask everybody to come out and dance away some extra pounds gathered during winter!”
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.
