Heaven Shall Burn - Iconoclast (Part 1: The Final Resistance)

Century Media Records
Feb.5th 2008

Heaven Shall Burn’s songwriting has created an album that pulls each note into the next. The domino effect likewise drives each song: the space between them seeming nothing more than a rhythmic absence. In the vein of melodic metal, similar to The Black Dahlia Murder, Iconoclast’s guitar-work smoothes over their rough edges without losing heaviness. This, their fifth album, thankfully enjoys a complete absence of melodic singing. In places where it might fit, for instance “A Dying Ember,” singer Marcus Bischoff screams on key instead; a daunting task in deed, but one that he’s up for. The lyrics are loosely conceptual, based on the idea that God is dead and must be avenged. Lyric “For Years, we hide in blackness” says it all: the band has emerged again, into the light.
