Heaven Shall Burn Reveals New Album Details and Discusses Songs

German hardcore death metal band Heaven Shall Burn has begun to reveal the track list for the forthcoming record, Invictus, on Century Media Record. A brand new track from Invictus will premiere on the band’s MySpace page on Friday, April 9th. "Invictus" is set to release in North America on June 8th, courtesy of Century Media Records.

"Invictus" was recorded at Tue Madsen’s Antfarm Studio in Aarhus, Denmark, and produced by Heaven Shall Burn’s guitarists Maik Weichert and Alexander Dietz.

The band discusses some of the songs on the new album below:

"THE OMEN - We got the idea for the song after people were asking us in interviews several times if we really think that you can still save the world. This kind of ignorance is upsetting us every time. There are many, many people whose world has long ended. They live in a world of war, hunger, misery and exploitation – and someone sitting in our backstage in our nice and cosy First World has the guts to ask a question like this. This drastically shows how people ignore that other people are suffering and dying."

"COMBAT - is about child soldiers."

"I WAS, I AM, I SHALL BE - deals with the murders of Liebknecht and Luxemburg."

"BURIED IN FORGOTTEN GROUNDS - The title relates to 'The Weapon They Fear.' It is about how Augusto Pinochet was protected by old networks and that the role of the CIA during the putsch in Chile and other countries in South and Middle America is still unclear. To this day ten thousands of families have no idea where their relatives were deported to."
