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
. “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.”
Invictus [the full title of which is Invictus (Iconoclast III)] 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.
It 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.
