HEAVEN SHALL BURN TO RELEASE MUSIC INSPIRED BY MATT DAMON MOVIE
I’m kidding, of course. Yes, Invictus was a movie last year that Clint Eastwood directed and that got nominated for a couple of Oscars, but it’s also the Latin word for “unconquered.” Given that, I’m surprised it took so long for a metal band to use the word as an album title.
But here come Heaven Shall Burn to swoop it up! Their Invictus, which will not feature a guest rap by Morgan Freeman, will be released by Century in North America on June 8, and other various territories where I don’t live throughout late May.
I’m literally listening to Invictus as I type this, aaaannnndddd… it sure is a Heaven Shall Burn album! The intro is even a remix/rethinking of the one from their last studio album, Iconoclast, Part 1: The Final Resistance. (Although I guess it wasn’t “the final resistance,” since I’m sitting here writing about the band’s new album.) HSB are one of those bands, like Insomnium, who basically make the same record over and over again, so you should already have some sense of how excited, or not excited, you are to hear this release.
