Heaven Shall Burn: INVICTUS OUT NOW!
HEAVEN SHALL BURN’S ‘INVICTUS’ OUT NOW
Sixth studio album available in North America
THURINGEN, GERMANY – Germany’s politically charged heavy metal outfit, Heaven Shall Burn, has unleashed their sixth studio album, Invictus, in North America today, courtesy of Century Media Records. Invictus [the full title of which is Invictus (Iconoclast III)] is the third part of the “Iconoclast” story, following the 2008 release, Iconoclast, and the 2009 DVD, Bildersturm. Like its predecessors, Invictus will again tell stories about unconventional heroes, while shedding a different light on well-known idols and legends.
The new full-length, which Outburn Magazine calls, “the perfect marriage of metalcore and melodic death metal,” was recorded at Tue Madsen’s Antfarm Studio in Aarhus, Denmark. The album was produced by Heaven Shall Burn’s guitarists, Alexander Dietz and Maik Weichert.
The track list for Invictus is…
2. The Omen
4. I Was I Am I Shall Be
5. Buried In Forgotten Grounds
7. The Lie You Bleed For
8. Return To Sanity
9. Against Bridge Burners
10. Of Forsaken Poets
12. Given In Death
Two songs off Invictus, “The Omen” and “Combat”, can be streamed on the band’s official MySpace page at: http://www.myspace.com/officialheavenshallburn.
The new album debuted in the 9th position on the German Media Control Charts, when it released on May 21st.
This marks the first time Heaven Shall Burn and Century Media Records have cracked the Top 10 in Germany.
