Heathen – ‘Breaking the Silence’

Release Date
Combat Records
Thrash/Speed Metal

This morning in the Metal Digest office, we’re blasting out ‘Breaking the Silence’, the 1987 debut album by often overlooked thrash metal stalwarts Heathen. ‘Breaking the Silence’ was Heathen at their most primal; this was the band playing thrash/speed metal without beginning to take the chances at other sounds such as technical and progressive metal that would appear by their second album. This was David White, Lee Altus and Doug Piercy firing on all their thrashing cylinders and thus creating one of the most overlooked thrash debuts. This morning, dig out your copy and crank up the volume on this beast because this early in the morning, the silence deserves to be broken.
