Что сказать? Молодость вспомним? Отличный альбом!!
Breaking the Silence is the first album by the American thrash metal band Heathen released in 1987 by Combat Records. The band members on this album was Dave Godfrey on vocals, Lee Altus on guitars, Doug Piercy on guitars, Mike Jastremski on bass and Carl Sacco on the drums. They all show great skills when it comes to the guitars, frantic and high-speeding riffs and great guitar solos.
This was Heathen's first album which shows a lot of musical skills and skilled vocal work as well. Heathen material is based on the sounds from the american thrash-metal scene and the NWOBHM, they emerged in the late 80's in the Bay Area thrash movement but they never made a bigger breakthrough. The band plays energic and precise music with skilled and harmonic vocals, this band is easly compared to Anthrax because they also had good vocalsists. ~ Review by Dethtrasher

Heathen's first album was a fundamental thrash album, similar to what a ton of bands were spewing out during the late '80s. What makes this album a step above the others is the relentless riffs, progressive elements, and melodic guitar harmonies.
