Biography

Saalfeld, Germany (1996 – present)

Heaven Shall Burn was formed in autumn 1996, under the name ‘Consense’. With the recording of their second demo in early 1997 the band changed their name to ‘Heaven Shall Burn’. The name is taken from a Marduk album titled “Heaven Shall Burn… When We Are Gathered”. In an interview with the band at decoymusic.com, the band said: “It’s not that we’re huge Marduk fans, but we liked the name. It sounds a bit provoking and so people ask us again and again for the meaning behind our name. It has been like that since the very beginning. We use the term “heaven” as a metaphor for some kind of a fake paradise that people create in their heads. Some people close their eyes and don’t see the truth surrounding them. So this kind of fake heaven should burn. Some people might think that our name is an anti-religious statement, but it isn’t.”

In 1998 the band released an MCD entitled “In Battle There Is No Law” followed by a split-LP with “Fall of Serenity” in 1999. Following these releases the band signed to Lifeforce Records for their 2000 debut album “Asunder”. It was followed by a split-CD with their long-time friends Caliban in 2000 as well as 2002’s album “Whatever It May Take”. In 2002, “In Battle There Is No Law” was re-released through Circulation Records.

Upon the release of ‘Whatever it May Take’ , Heaven Shall Burn toured through England and South-America, and finally to Iceland. There they met Olàfur Arnalds, who wrote three classical interlude parts for their album ‘Antigone’.

    Iconoclast is a one-of-a-kind, a one-in-a-million, a uinique and absolutely flawless album, I donÄt know any metalcore-record that stands an even remote chance. Deaf to Our Prayers and Antigone are extremly tight and for the bigger part brilliant albums, too. The rest is just meh, but who cares when you can have pieces like Against All Lies. Mother of god, this band has released some amazing work.

    Ахах... На какой портал не зайду - пользователи в своих комментариях никак не могут угомонится не счет жанра HSB))) Ну, что ж... Терь моя очередь вставить свое слово))) - Deathcore, а к альбому Veto я прибавлю еще и Melodic Death Metal

    This is the kind of band that will always sound the same, every album has its jewells, but the majority of the songs are monotonous, and don't get me wrong there are thousands of bands like this one for example TBDM, Cannibal Corpse, Hate Eternal,etc,etc(not in genre but in this situation). So for that kind of people who doesn't like changes here it is!.
