Founded in 1984 by guitarist Lee Altus, Heathen rose out of the fertile San Francisco Bay Area thrash scene. The band’s debut, 1987's ‘Breaking The Silence’ on Combat, was followed by ‘Victims of Deception’ which was released on Roadrunner in 1991. Both albums were critically acclaimed and considered underground thrash classics. Remarkably, 2009’s ‘The Evolution Of Chaos’ picked up where ‘Victims Of Deception’ left off with a unique blend of thrash and power metal, high technicality and complex songwriting that few bands in thrash have been able to match then or now. This Barking Chicken Production demonstrates the amazing cohesion of material that spans 25 years and destroys the output of thrash rivals in terms of quality and craftsmanship.
