I have only begun listening to Heaven Shall Burn in the last few months or so, and my first purchse was the "In Battle..." disc, which I enjoyed but would not rate five stars. "Antigone", however, is another matter. On this disc, Heaven Shall Burn manage to combine a number of different metallic and non-metallic elements, yet still produce an album that hits like a ton of bricks. The band experiments with clean vocals, incorporates pianos into some of the songs, and enlists the aid of several guest artists, primarily to create an intro and two outros that are chilling and hauntingly beautiful, punctuated by melancholy violins and pianos. These instrumental pieces provide stark contrast to and give more atmosphere to the otherwise unrelenting barrage of bone-crunching metal. They also give you some time to catch your breath. This is some of the most devastating metal I have heard in a long time, forgoing so many of the niceties of modern metal and going straight for the jugular with all the subtlety of a wild elephant. Most of the songs aren't too fast, but they are full of jaw-dropping hooks, vicious dual-guitar frenzies, and hard-hitting bass drums and cymbal crashes. The singer, Marcus, does not have the stereotypical super-deep death metal voice, but rather he delivers his grim lyrics with a shrill, piercing scream that borders on the edges of human comprehension. The high points on this album for me are "Architects of the Apocalypse" and "Voice of the Voiceless", but really this album has no weaknesses. It doesn't get repetetive and the subject matter is quite varied. I love putting this disc on in my car and cranking the volume full blast and watching the more sensitive souls amongst us cringe at its sheer brutality. I cannot recommend this album highly enough for those who appreciate extreme metal. Raise those devil horns!

I dont know how to explain it because I am still listening to it for the first time and Im speechless. Its that good. You should buy it now regardless of all of these reviewes. The intro alons is awesome and the riffs are crazy. The drumming also sticks out to me. Its really catchy. If you are any type of metal head being it harcore, death metal, numetal...check this out. Some say its hard core but i dont think so. Its more death metal type stuff to me but not srait death metal. Just go buy it now and see for yourself.

Great CD! Worth every penny! Highly recommended to anyone who enjoys metal! If you enjoy metal, you have to aggressively search to find the gems, as the radio plays the same old crap over and over, and while Sirius is much better, they hardly ever play most of the gems I've found by looking at metal label websites and metal magazine reviews online. Check-out some of the CDs that I have reviewed in my past, and I guarantee you will find something you may not have ever heard of! Stay metal and support our metal community!

Seriously, this band is beyond words.

There are myriad things to say about what a soaring achievement "Antigone" is, but I'll keep this short and concise.

To put it quite simply, Heaven Shall Burn is the At the Gates for the new millenium. They combine everything that makes the so-called "new wave of American heavy metal" so great, and fuse it with this insanely vicious metalcore sound that gives every song a thundering crunch that just cannot be denied.

"The Weapon They Fear," "Only Truth" and "Voice of the Voiceless" come to mind first as being standouts, but "To Harvest the Storm" is probably the heaviest yet most listenable song on the record. This is the heaviest metalcore album I've ever heard, and yet, somehow, also the most listenable.

"Antigone" is a disc I haven't tired of since the day it came out. And almost a year later, I can still listen to it all day without taking it out of my CD player. Buy it, and you'll see why.

Having heard "The Weapon They Fear" on a metal compliation disc...I immeadiately went out and picked up Antigone....and truthfully it is one of most heartfelt, cathartic, and terrifying works I've ever heard. Now I don't mean terrifying in a goofy Slipknot scary mask way....or a silly pagan way AKA Dimmu Borgir, Emperor, etc....in fact it has nothing to do with their look....(which BTW is just 5 clean cut guys going about their business...no pretense at all)

So where do I get their terrifying sound? First, Mattias Voight's vocal ability is levels above most hardcore frontmen...and his voice is among the most honest. Simply put, if one could give a voice to all those that suffer and are subjugated in the world...it would be Mattias's voice. He sings with rage, pain, sadness, anger...and hope. He makes other metalcore singers look like they are posing...and don't really feel what they are singing about. The chorus on The Weapons They Fear..."Never to be silenced" exemplifies what im trying to clumsily say here.

Combine Mattias's ability with socially-aware, thoughtful lyrics about mankind's obsession with warfare, opression, etc...and that's where you get the terrifying...the terror that can be mankind. If I could sum it up...Heaven Shall Burn's music is like the witnessing the Holocaust without being able to do anything about it. Very angry, full of pain, honest, and never losing a slight glimmer of hope.

The music itself is very much like that of Killswitch Engage...albeit with a darker, more punishing sound...that always retains a sense of melody. If you like K.S.E...the actual instrumentation these guys put out is very similar and you will feel very at home.

The production is also very similar to a K.S.E. album...
