Bay Area thrash legends Heathen have revealed their fourth studio album entitled, Empire of the Blind, which will be released on September 18th via Nuclear Blast Records. They also share their the second single, the title track ‘Empire Of The Blind’

Heathen comments, “We are very proud to announce the second single, title track from our new album Empire of the Blind! This song refers to the ongoing manipulation of people through political and social propaganda in the mass media. Behold the rising empire!”

The track builds and builds into wonderful thrash metal heaven. Theres real craftsmanship here with a well thought out guitar solo and trade mark double bass drum and a driving memorable riff. All the basic building blocks that the band have then expanded on to create enjoyable solid metal, that not many bands can do as well as Heathen can.
