Heaven Shall Burn announce new album, premiere song

Wednesday, July 20, 2016 9:18 AM PT


Official press release:

In order to sum up the overall feelings and ideology found within Heaven Shall Burn's eighth full length offering, simply entitled, Wanderer, one need to look no further than the first few pages of the CD booklet:

"He seeks distance to change his perspective
In freedom and seclusion, he arranges his thoughts
Strength and power he regains in nature's shielding bosom
In vivid silence and familiar remoteness he can listen to his heart
Yet he experienced that from no wayfare you return the same
He knows that nothing will change until you change yourself
And therefore, every revolutionary is a wanderer."

In summation, during confusing and troubled times we occasionally need to retreat from all the madness that surrounds us in order to gain a new perspective. The energy and focus that can be found from this retreat can be used to spark a change within ourselves, lending to a refreshed and strengthened mindset. When one chooses simplicity over complexity, a new road appears, one that leads to a frame of mind which shows you just how over indulged we can make this journey through life.

To enhance the auditory and lyrical journey, Heaven Shall Burn asked their friend and photographer Christian Thiele to embark on a quest in order to capture the beauty of mountains, plains and shorelines. The lush and awe inspiring photos that came from this trek lend to the beauty behind the brutality of Wanderer.

Sonically, WandererWanderer was produced by guitarist Alexander Dietz and co-produced by guitarist Maik Weichert. Drums were tracked by Eike Freese at Chameleon Studios in Hamburg with the rest being recorded at Dietz's own Chemical Burn Studios in Bad Kösen. Mixing was handled by Tue Madsen in part at Chemical Burn Studios as well as at his own Antfarm Studios in Aarhus, Denmark.

Century Media Records will release the album on September 16.

The track listing of Wanderer reads as follows:

01. The Loss Of Fury
02. Bring The War Home
03. Passage Of The Crane
04. They Shall Not Pass
05. Downshifter
06. Prey To God
07. Agent Orange (bonus track)
08. My Heart Is My Compass
09. Save Me
10. Corium
11. Extermination Order
12. A River Of Crimson
13. The Cry Of Mankind

European metalcore offerings were so bad in the mid '00s... got dusted by Jones and NAILS time over. exactly zero people were surprised though, seeing as they attempted to rip off the guy who put the first palm mutes and blast beats on an album.

"I feel like I should comment, because I'm being mentioned here. I was always fond of the German metalcore scene of the early days. The big ones not so much, but there were a few treasures that were highly influential on me and the American bizarro grain scene: Engrave, Costa's Cake House, Tumult and Cheerleaders of the Apocalypse for instance. Pure aggression."

Watch out we got a bad ass here. And yes they sound exactly the same just the production was shittier back then. Kurt Ballou here go listen to Touche Amore and buy their shit, bring back 90's screamo wave.

Sounds like they are taking a break on this album from their left wing, US bashing politics. After our election they can resume standard operations, or maybe *gasp* talk about their own, growing problems.

Bildersturm – Iconoclast II (The Visual Resistance) was a live DVD released in 2009.
