Maik Weichert (guitars) comments about the video for “Hunters Will Be Hunted”: “The topic of the video is very important to us. No matter if it’s hobby hunters in our regions, tourists going hunting in Africa or the ineffable whalers that Sea Shepherd are luckily setting more and more bounds to – Theodor Heuss’ (first President of the Federal Republic of Germany) words are universal: ‘Hunting is merely a cowardly circumlocution for the especially cowardly murder of fellow creatures who don’t have a chance. Hunting is a variant of human mental illness.’ The video is a bit unusual for a metal band, but we think it is a little different and standing out against the normal stereotypes of the scene. We are really proud that we could win Denise Rombouts over for the main female role. It was great fun working with such a talented and professional model. She really taught every one of us a lesion when it came down to being tough and keep on working during an ice cold winter day.

Read on for a few international reviews of the critically acclaimed “VETO”:

Rarely was it more entertaining to put in a ‘VETO’ – or play it.(soundcheck #2, Metal Hammer, DE)

Where the Thuringians turned a blind eye before they are astonishing with arrangements that are perfect down to the last detail. […] Due to the amount of highlights it is tough to point out a particular song […].(Rock Hard, DE)

When heaven is burning on ‘VETO’ flames are painting two massive words into the skies: freedom and truth. […] HEAVEN SHALL BURN are varying their monstrous metal, so the draft of the soundtrack is in no way inferior to the depth of the transported thought.(Visions, DE)

The Thuringians are playing superb melodic Death Metal with an In Flames angle and even have a terrific cover of Blind Guardians’s ‘Valhalla’.(Guitar, DE)

As expected the Thuringians are putting in their musical and lyrical ‘VETO’.(Legacy, DE)

A whole list of surprises that are framed perfectly by the unbelievable sound.(Ox, DE)

The only way to make something wilder than this would have been including a chainsaw in the special edition.(Revolver, E)

The band returns with their mouths full of hate and a fistful of songs that will make you forget the three long years that have passed since their last album.(Rockzone, E)

HEAVEN SHALL BURN did it again.(Rock Tribune, B)

unbelievably aggressive(Aardschok, NL)

‘VETO’ could well take pride of place as THE archetypal HEAVEN SHALL BURN record, practically overflowing with passion and vigour.(

…one of the best metal releases in 2013 so far.(

…’VETO’ is just a marvel.(

An unconventional metalcore record through and through, this is one helluva ride that should not be missed.(New Noise Magazine)
