German melodic death metal band Heaven Shall Burn is returning to the world with their first album since 2016, and it's going to be quite an effort. Heaven Shall Burn has announced Of Truth And Sacrifice, a double album featuring roughly 100 minutes of new music, to be out sometime March 2020.
The album is split into two halves – Of Truth and Of Sacrifice – which guitarist Maik Weichert are both rife with experimental bits.
"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."
Of Truth And Sacrifice also features artwork by Eliran Kantor (Bloodbath, Thy Art Is Murder, Sigh, Soulfly, etc.), a string section, and will feature the band documentary Mein grünes Herz in dunklen Zeiten on some editions.
