If you are a fan of the band, then you know what to expect in every release from them. This has its cons and pros. But there are also some moments that are actually bland. Please count intros, outros and all of their covers that have put in their albums. Here we have a cover on Nuclear Assault and their song “Critical Mass”. One of the positive ones is that they have never offered us a bad album, and neither is this time to do it. Also their social lyrics, that can make you think and worry about some society’s issues, are something that sets them apart from the mass. The ease with which they can give you a feeling and melody through aggressive music is also present here. Awesome combination of Death Metal and Metalcore through tempo changes, nice riffs and some catchy songs that stick into your mind at once. But once again, you won’t hear Heaven Shall Burn try to play differently and try to experiment or to compose in a different way. It’s their safety zone that they are trapped in, something that I would personally like to see it stop, as we talk about their ninth work. I understand, of course, that this is not a problem for others. But what they risk this time around is that “Of Truth & Justice” is a double album with a total duration of about 100 minutes. Given that the 100 minute of duration can deter someone who is not very familiar with their sound, but on the other hand to satisfy their fanatical fans. In any case, we are talking about yet another tough and totally professional effort by Heaven Shall Burn.
