Guest review by

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.
