 comments:

“We are very pleased to announce Empire of the Blind! It’s been another 10 years but we are finally back with a new HEATHEN album. Fine wine takes time! Everyone in the band worked their asses off on this record. Zeuss absolutely nailed it and more than realised our vision for the sound. Travis Smith perfectly captured the bleak atmosphere that we imagined for the artwork. It was a year in the making and we couldn’t be more proud of the outcome. The 1st single ‘The Blight’ is just the beginning… behold the rising Empire!”

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, ARThe album features guest appearances by Gary Holt (Exodus, Slayer)Rick Hunolt (ex-Exodus) and Doug Piercy (ex-Heathen)The cover artwork Empire of the Blind was handled by renowned artist Travis Smith (OverkillExhorder).
