German metalcore/melodic death metal outfit Heaven Shall Burn have revealed the cover art for their new album titled Veto. The album is due to be released on the 22nd of April in Europe, and the 30th of April in North America via Century Media Records.

The cover of Veto shows the John Collier painting of Lady Godiva, (c.1898). Maik Weichert comments as to why this piece of art works perfectly with the underlying concept of the album: "It as an icon regarding the fight for social justice. The image also represents a contemporary issue: i.e. today's leading class being isolated from the people and the conflicts arising from that. It is also a great way to show our fans how current problems and topics can be reflected and derived from historical artworks."

Veto tracklist:

01. Godiva
02. Land Of The Upright Ones
03. Die Stürme Rufen Dich
04. Fallen
05. Hunters Will Be Hunted
06. You Will Be Godless
07. Valhalla
08. Antagonized
09. Like Gods Among Mortals
10. 53 Nations
11. Beyond Redemption

The band has also released the song "Land Of The Upright Ones" from their new album available for streaming at this location. The catch, however, is that fans are asked to solve a sound puzzle and work out the right sequence in order to hear the track in its entirety and download it.

Maik Weichert (guitars) said about the song: "The song is dedicated to Thomas Sankara, a relatively unknown revolutionary whose fate is closely linked to Burkina Faso which can be translated to 'Land of upright/honest people' or 'Land of honest people'. It's a very heavy track."

The puzzle is a fun idea. Not too hard either. Everybody else can just wait for it to pop up on Youtube.

I was just going to say the same thing... I'll also add that Arisk Priest did it better. Still works though... Yey for new album too, these fellas are good.
