Bay Area thrash legends Heathen recently revealed their fourth studio album entitled, Empire of the Blind, will be released on September 18 via Nuclear Blast Records. The band have released an album trailer and discuss the recording process.
Empire of the Blind was for the most part engineered, produced, mixed, and mastered by Christopher “Zeuss” Harris at Planet Z Studios. Additional details—rhythm guitars, etc.—were put to digital “tape” by Kragen Lum at SubLevel Studio in Little Rock, AR. The album features guest appearances by Gary Holt (Exodus, Slayer), Rick Hunolt (ex-Exodus) and Doug Piercy (ex-Heathen). The cover art to Empire of the Blind was once again handled by renowned artist Travis Smith (Overkill, Exhorder).
