Marcus Bischoff (vocals): “I am extremely excited to have signed to the label that is home to plenty of my favourite bands. 2004 promises to become a really challenging year for HEAVEN SHALL BURN. Full force ahead!!!”
Maik Weichert (guitar): “I am very happy about the new deal with Century Media. It was a really important step forwards to take for us as a band, but even more important was to make it together with a partner who doesnlt only understand how to promote and market HEAVEN SHALL BURN’s music but who also has the ability and attitude to support the political and socio-critical dimension of the band. Furthermore, it means a lot to us that we didn’t only find a good new home, but that will also manage to continue the co-operation with Lifeforce Records. There still won’t be any compromises for the future with HEAVEN SHALL BURN! Everything that needs to be said will be said, and everything that needs to be done will be done! We are positively looking forward to 2004!”
