Heaven Shall Burn: release "double video" for "Protector" and "Weakness Leaving My Heart" taken from double album "Of Truth and Sacrifice"
Heaven Shall Burn:  release "double video" for "Protector" and "Weakness Leaving My Heart" taken from double album "Of Truth and Sacrifice"

Today HEAVEN SHALL BURN aren’t just releasing one, but two videos for the brand new songs “Protector” and “Weakness Leaving My Heart” that are linked in one clip to reflect the two sides of the concept of the album. Check out the videos directed by their long-time friend Philipp Hirsch under the following link: https://youtu.be/IvytvMgUpis

Both songs were taken from the upcoming double album "Of Truth and Sacrifice", which is due for a release on March 20th, 2020.

Guitarist Maik Weichert explains: "In order to reflect the concept of the double album we decided to produce a 'double video' which turned into a real mammoth project. 'Protector' is taken from album one ("of Truth") while 'Weakness Leaving My Heart' is part of album two ('of Sacrifice'). While 'Protector' represents confidence and a readiness for action 'Weakness Leaving My Heart' is contemplative and deals with the sacrifices and losses that truth may cost. Something you should also feel from the different vibes of the songs. The double album is giving you the essence of what HSB is about and there is lots to explore."

On top of roughly 100 minutes of music on the regular album the limited editions come with a 80min documentary, "Mein grünes Herz in dunklen Zeiten" (= "My Green Heart In Dark Times"), by renown producer Ingo Schmoll who followed the band for almost a year in order to get to the bottom of the phenomenon HEAVEN SHALL BURN.
