Heavy Metal and Thrash legends Heathen will release a new album, Empire Of The Blind, later this year via Nuclear Blast Records. A flyer showing the “Empire Of The Blind” artwork can be found at the merchandise table during “The Bay Strikes Back” 2020 European tour featuring Testament, Death Angel, and Exodus, the latter of which includes Heathen guitarist Lee Altus.
“Empire Of The Blind” is the follow-up to The Evolution Of Chaos, which was released as a 10th-anniversary remastered reissue on January 31 via Mascot Records. The effort was made available on CD/DVD, 2LP and digitally with a previously unreleased bonus track, “Seasons Of Purgatory”. The CD/DVD was accompanied by a two-hour “making-of” documentary on the album as well as a live performance from 2009’s Thrash Domination in Japan.
