Heaven Shall Burn - Iconoclast (Review)

Heaven Shall Burn are a German death metal band, but upon the recent finding of deathcore, it has also registered that label as well, but the album itself is labelled as melodic death metal, death metal and metalcore. First thing the term "Heaven Shall Burn" has no intention to be anti-christian, but as a reference to a divine place (like when someone says "this is heaven!", it isn't "heaven" but something they like, understand?). This album was released in 2008, with their new album "Invictus" being released in 2010 which I will possibly review as well. Recently I have started listening to their albums, and even I personally will always like Heaven Shall Burn, the use of those great vocals the singers has with the heaviness of guitars is just superb, you hardly ever see a actual "heavy" band, the use of the guitars is superb, I wouldn't say technical, but is used in such a way that it pulls off the vocals well. The drums in this album is also great with such use of the double peddle the songs get a really nice fast pace, unlike some bands the drummer can not put as much consistency with double peddles that I like. But not just are they heavy, the also include melodic parts in their songs, which also go quite smoothly in their songs. This is also their fifth album that they have produced, and it appears I still have 2 songs I haven't listened to. Lyrics relate of unifying for justice, and are quite well written in my opinion. This would be one of the few bands I would recommend to people if they wanted to get into this sort of music.

Javiel said...

Not my cup of tea. You should do one over some metal bands this style, but more singing, less growling/screaming.

Even the name of the band remembers me Behemoth. lol
