What got me interested in this band first hand was their name – Heaven Below. I just loved the name from the first time I read it, which was when the download link showed up in my inbox – because I had never heard about this band before. Heaven Below were formed in Los Angeles back in 2007 by vocalist / guitarist Patrick Kennison, guitarist Marty O’Brien (Disturbed) and session drummer Chad Clark and in 2008, bassist Dave Comer joined them to complete the line-up. But later that year, Comer and O’Brien left the band and were replaced by Jesse Billson (guitar) and John Younger (bass). That was the line-up that recorded their debut album Countdown To Devil in 2009, produced by one Ben Moody of Evanescence fame. After the release of the album, Clark jumped the ship and was replaced by Elias Andra (Dead By Sunrise) and it would take Heaven Below three years to release the follow-up Falling From Zero (2012). I have to admit that I’m clueless of the sales of these albums and how big this band is overseas – or in Europe for that matter – but I guess the band had become big enough to sign up with Megadeth’s David Ellefson’s EMP Label Group for the release of their brand new third album, the first one with new guitarist Lucas Kanopa who replaced Billson who left in 2014. The new record is a somewhat ambitious piece of work as it is a concept album on an idea that the guys started to work on some four years ago.
