Heathen are back

2020-06-26 by Fernando Alves CONTRIBUTOR | 19 Comments
Thrash metallers Heathen are streaming the lyric video for 'The Blight', a brand new track taken from their upcoming album Empire of the Blind, out September 18th via Nuclear Blast.

Stream 'The Blight' lyric video below.



Band states:
"We are very pleased to announce Empire of the Blind!
It's been another 10 years but we are finally back with a new HEATHEN album. Fine wine takes time! Everyone in the band worked their asses off on this record. Zeuss absolutely nailed it and more than realized our vision for the sound. Travis Smith perfectly captured the bleak atmosphere that we imagined for the artwork. It was a year in the making and we couldn't be more proud of the outcome. The 1st single 'The Blight' is just the beginning... behold the rising Empire!"

My most anticipates release this year. Sadly the song isn't very exciting.

^^That is what I got from this simple-in-design track as well, namely the main riff (lead guitars shred though), hope the rest of the album is better overall.

That said, vocals are improved with respect to Evolution of Chaos and previous albums.

Solid song with some great melodic moments. The downside to the track are the frequent bog standard thrash riffs.

it sounds like they tried to imitate the sound from the last exodus album and lost it completely

"it sounds like they tried to imitate the sound from the last exodus album"
- this was my initial thought, that it sounds like modern exodus. Which is down to Lee Atlus I guess.

As someone who was one in deep love with Victims of Deception, I'm not a fan of this. This lacks the melodic touch that made Heathen stand out. That "DEAD" part is also very very lame. In addition, metal lyric videos are the worst. Nuclear Blast, PLEASE quit making these!

Rather uninspired creations executed very skillfully? Yup, it's Heathen.

Man, it is really hard to make fresh sounding thrash nowadays and I don't think this is it.

Everything they have put out so far, slays.

The new track is not standard Heathen, but maybe the rest of the album is, so let's hear it first in its entirety, before deciding to burn the whole thing.

I'm still seeing the glass half-full.
