The record marks HEATHEN’s first studio offering in nearly 20 years. The band’s current lineup includes David White (vocals), Lee Altus (guitar; Exodus), Kragen Lum (guitar; Prototype), Jon Torres (bass; Angelwitch) and returning members Darren Minter (drums).
“This is no nostalgia trip for nostalgia’s sake. This is a high-quality, contemporary thrash album that, had the band not had any history to speak of, would stand quite well on its own merits.” — 8/10 Decibel
“Old school thrashers certainly remember Heathen from back in the day, but their return will garner them a whole new generation of fans.” — About.com l Heavy Metal
“Despite the ever increasing ’80s reunions, reactivated line-ups and/or reissues, the number that have actually released any NEW music worthy of their back catalog can be counted on one hand, with room to spare. Add Heathen to that short list!” — Bravewords.com
Long before Ralf Scheepers was in Primal Fear and Gamma Ray, he was in a band called Tyran Pace. I stumbled upon the video below from the mid 80’s of Ralf with Tyran Pace performing their song, “Eye To Eye”. This video is a good reminder of how ridiculous the outfits were in the eighties. Even worse is the 80’s porn mustache on their guitarist.
Check out the clip below.
