Heaven Shall Burn Post New Song Online
April 26, 2010
Germany's forward thinking death metal outfit, Heaven Shall Burn, has launched a brand new song, "Combat," from the forthcoming record, 'Invictus', on the recently redesigned Heaven Shall Burn MySpace page. "Combat" joins the newly revealed, "The Omen," to give fans a taste of what Invictus has in store, when it releases in North America on June 8th, courtesy of Century Media Records.

"Here is the next foretaste of our new album," states guitarist Maik Weichert. "After launching 'The Omen', that was a typical HSB song, the next new track, 'Combat', is probably a bit more unusual for us. Still, we are very proud about it. It is straight in your face, which is what it's all about! The song is about child soldiers which is a social injustice that isn't dealt with or even acknowledged in several countries in the world."

Heaven Shall Burn Announce Title For First Official DVD
March 12, 2009
'Bildersturm – Iconoclast II (The Visual Resistance)' will be the title of the highly anticipated first official DVD by German metalcore titans, Heaven Shall Burn.

Guitarist Maik Weichert comments: “We can’t believe that we now have the chance to finally hold our first DVD in our hands!!! We did not expect that it would be so much hard work to get it done, but of course it also was loads of fun to put this together.

Since we could not decide which of the two shows to use on this DVD, we decided to include both of them! The show at Summer Breeze festival last year and the one in Vienna were just equally incredible and watching them still gives us goose bumps!”

Besides stunning live material the DVD will also include a comprehensive documentary about HSB and loads of additional content, details will be announced soon. 'Bildersturm – Iconoclast II (The Visual Resistance)' will be out on Century Media Records towards the end of May.

Furthermore, the brand-new video clip for Heaven Shall Burn's fantastic version of Edge Of Sanity’sBlack Tears” has just been finished and will be premiered in the coming weeks.

Biography
HOME TOWN: Germany
MEMBERS:
Marcus Bischoff - Vocals
Alexander Dietz - Guitar
Maik Weichert - Guitar
Eric Bischoff - Bass
Matthias Voist - Drums

After four highly acclaimed releases, German metal titans HEAVEN SHALL BURN have returned with Iconoclast (Part1: The Final Resistance), a scathing and pummeling assault that bludgeons the listener with sheer intensity. The album was recorded and produced once again at Rape Of Harmonies Studios by guitarists Maik Weichert and Alexander Dietz with the renowned Tue Madsen (Himsa, The Haunted) handling the mixing and mastering duties.

Maik Weichert (guitars) states: "Iconoclasts are warriors who are sent to judge and destroy the murderers of God. With God dead, the only thing that's left is to take revenge for his murder. The album works on two different levels: each song tells a story that is rooted in reality. However, all songs are linked with an overall story about a cast of warriors called Iconoclasts."

HEAVEN SHALL BURN solidified their stronghold on the genre upon signing to Century Media in 2004 with the release of 'Antigone', which was their first offering to garner worldwide acclaim. The album further showcased the band's melodic tendencies with the inclusion of more harmonies while increasing their scathing, brutal edge. Their socially aware and politically committed attitude remained prominent as they continued to forge a new exciting position within the scene.

The group were one of the first to ultimately shatter the boundaries that stood between the death metal and hardcore genres. Now they have triumphantly returned with Iconoclast (Part1: The Final Resistance), a stunning portrayal of unabashed 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.

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.
