Heathen is positively one of, if not the most underrated of the Bay Area Thrash bands formed in the 80's. Breaking The Silence is an excellent debut album I can recommend to both fans of the "extreme" and "melodic" sub-genres. This is definitely one of my top melodic thrash releases of all time. These guys have got some serious chops; it surprises me that they are almost never mentioned when people talk about their favorite bands. They play with a cleaner, melodic, less aggressive sound than other thrash bands of the era, but they will still have you banging your head along to the tracks all the same.

Definitely strong album. IMO the band came too late, if they released this a couple years earlier and maybe had 2 or 3 more albums before thrash died they could be bigger and ppl would know about them.

No other band sounds like this IMO, these leads and vocals are highly original. Also the riffs, especially in "Death By Hanging" and "Breaking The Silence" are just classic material. Great debut

Very underrated band. For me one of the best Thrash Metal bands of all time. I love their special sound. Almost perfect album, 9 points are deserved.
