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.
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.
