Heaven Shall Burn Premiere “Übermacht” Music Video

Heaven Shall Burn have premiered a new video for their song “Übermacht.” This track is from the band’s new double album “Of Truth & Sacrifice,” which was released today (March 20). Maik Weichert commented:

“For our conditions it is an unusual video for an unusual Heaven Shall Burn song and was lots of fun to shoot. ‘Übermacht’ is one of our favorite songs off the album and we are thrilled to hear what you think of it.”

Heaven Shall Burn Premiere “Eradicate” Music Video

Heaven Shall Burn have premiered a new video for their new song “Eradicate.” This track is from the band’s new double album “Of Truth & Sacrifice,” which will be released on March 20.

Maik Weichert commented:

“We are big fans of [director] Isaac Nabwana. His energy, creativity and his uncompromisingness to chase his dreams to create new perspectives and improvements for his environment is absolutely unique and inspiring. A few years ago I read an article about him and his movie called “Who killed Captain Alex?” which was incredibly fascinating. I followed his work ever since.

It is a great honor to become part of the Wakaliwood set. Those few minutes of the charming action-movie-madness means more to us than any other shiny Hollywood video clip. While working with Isaac we instantly felt like young boys again, who are seeing a Schwarzenegger or Bud Spencer movie for the first time. It was immensely important to us to get an authentic Wakaliwood video. The chance to work with the legendary VJ-Emmie as an commentator made it even more special to us.”

Heaven Shall Burn Premiere “My Heart And The Ocean” Music Video

Heaven Shall Burn have premiered a new video for their new song “My Heart And The Ocean.” This track is from the band’s new double album “Of Truth & Sacrifice,” which will be released on March 20.

Maik Weichert commented:

“The destruction of the oceans rarely happens right in front of us, but secretly in the middle of nowhere. We have been supporting Sea Shepherd for a very long time already and have made many friends and partners in this organization that it striving against the aforementioned destruction. It was important to us that active members as well as veterans are a part of the video.

People need to understand that these activists are no outlaws and untouchable heroes, but ordinary girls and boys coming right from the middles of our societies, people who have decided to make a change and fight for their ideals. Everybody can support a good cause and a fair battle. It doesn’t matter which nationality, skin colour or background you have – it’s about the world we all live in. If the oceans die it will mean our end as well.”

Heaven Shall Burn Premiere Double Video For “Protector” & “Weakness Leaving My Heart”

Heaven Shall Burn have premiered a double video for their new songs “Protector” and “Weakness Leaving My Heart.” These tracks are from the band’s new double album “Of Truth & Sacrifice,” which will be released on March 20. Guitarist Maik Weichert commented:

“In order to reflect the concept of the double album we decided to produce a ‘double video’ which turned into a real mammoth project. ‘Protector’ is taken from album one (“of Truth”) while ‘Weakness Leaving My Heart’ is part of album two (‘of Sacrifice’). While ‘Protector’ represents confidence and a readiness for action ‘Weakness Leaving My Heart’ is contemplative and deals with the sacrifices and losses that truth may cost. Something you should also feel from the different vibes of the songs. The double album is giving you the essence of what HSB is about and there is lots to explore.”

Maik Weichert commented:

“We decided that one album wasn’t good enough, but we wanted to create a double album as a statement. Our goal was a total work of art that people could dive into, something that leaves a lot of room for surprises and experiments. It was only fair to give our fans twice as much after letting them wait for so long.”

The album is “conceptually… split into two halves: ‘of truth’ and ‘of sacrifice’.” Weichert added the following about that:

“The title is exploring the idea of truth and the question what kind of sacrifices you are willing to make for it. Something reflected in the artwork: A warrioress is shielding her child with her own body. While the mother is representing the willingness to sacrifice the child is standing for truth.”

“It’s a title that refers to numerous current developments: people’s blindness in daily life and the unwillingness to make any sacrifices in order to bring about change. Still, there are many people in this world who do exactly this: teachers in Africa risking their lives in order to be able to educate children, journalists and whistleblowers who are putting their own safety at risk in order to flag things going wrong.”

With this news, the band have also revealed that they will be releasing a 90-minute documentary, titled “Mein grünes Herz in dunklen Zeiten,” with select editions of the record.
