Heaven Shall Burn: Metal Favorites Heaven Shall Burn To Tour The United States!
Heaven Shall Burn:  Metal Favorites Heaven Shall Burn To Tour The United States!
Europe has continually delivered some of the most innovative, technical and mind-blowing metal the world has ever seen. Holding true to this are German born Heaven Shall Burn. This passionate band not only are about to release one of the best metal albums of 2008, but will also be coming to the United States to play for thousands of eagerly awaiting fans.

Heaven Shall Burn will embark upon their first US Tour this spring alongside Embrace The End and The Ghost Inside. The outing will happen in April and is sure to be a show to remember with the band performing favorites from their past release "Antigone" that has sold over 20,000 copies in the United States alone, as well as songs from their brand new album "Iconoclast (Part One: The Final Resistance)" that *Rock Hard Magazine* described as having **"death metal-like riff cascades, uncompromisingly yelled vocals and - maybe most importantly - the song's catchiness puts them well ahead of their competitors." "Iconoclast" is another sledgehammer-album!"**

The band is ecstatic for the tour with guitarist Maik Weichert commenting on it saying:
*"Believe it or not, we´re coming!!! We´re more than happy to announce our first US tour, after so many years it worked out at last! We´re so looking forward to finally play live for you!!! By the start of the tour our new record "Iconoclast" will be released as well, so be prepared for some new stuff as well. Hope to meet you guys out there, we´re ready to kick some asses, join us!!!"*

While you wait to see them live in your town be sure to go to Heaven Shall Burn's myspace page [www.myspace.com/officialheavenshallburn](http://www.myspace.com/officialheavenshallburn) to hear a song from their upcoming album, "Iconoclast (Part One: The Final Resistance)", that hits shelves on **February 5th** to expectant fans across the country. The album plays like an epic soundtrack taking us through a story rooted in reality and also following the Iconoclast warriors sent to judge and destroy the murderers of God. Combining the best elements of luminaries such as At The Gates, Earth Crisis and Bolt Thrower, Heaven Shall Burn easily pull fans from a number of subgenres within the metal and hardcore communities. With a socially aware and politically committed attitude, the band plays with the utmost sincerity and urgency. Heaven Shall Burn have taken their combination of melodic death metal and crushing metalcore to the next level with Iconoclast (Part One: The Final Resistance). The new album is full of thick beefy riffs, amazing harmonies, pummeling double bass assaults and a harsh vocal delivery. The entire outing is made all the more devastating with the best production the band has had to date. Each songs emotion can be clearly felt lending to a dynamic and hard-hitting album that is sure to be a favorite of 2008.
