After achieving notoriety with its active rock hit “When Daylight Dies”, and its follow up collaboration with William Shatner on their cover of Rush’s “Subdivisions”, Heaven Below has just completed their most ambitious releases to date “Good Morning Apocalypse”.

Heaven Below is:

Patrick Kennison – Vocals & Guitars
Lucas Kanopa – Guitars
John Younger – Bass
Shad Wilhelm – Drums

Kennison explained in an interview that the album has been in the works for some time: “Nearly four years ago the band and I decided that wed like to start working on a concept record. We knew how ambitious it sounded to even consider that, but once several legendary artists offered to help make it become a reality, we knew we had something”.

Kennison also discussed the album’s overall sound, noting its mix of old school rock and more modern elements: “With over 30 songs written, we narrowed it down to the top 12 songsUdo DirkschneiderLita FordJason McMaster and Kobra Paige all stepped up to lend their amazing talents. We feel this album is a powerful culmination of old school metal meets current fresh metal. This kind of undertaking only comes along once in a lifetime, and we think we captured this moment on ‘Good Morning Apocalypse‘. The timing was perfect with David Ellefson’s EMP Label Group outside of the box approach to new music”.

I'm a 40+ music fan. Fond mostly of rock and metal - my staple musical food delights. Originally from Northern Ireland, I am now based in the UK-Manchester. I have a hectic musical existence with regular shows and interviews. Been writing freelance for five years now with several international websites. Passionate about what I do, I have been fortunate already to interview many of my all-time musical heroes. My music passion was first created by seeing Status Quo at the tender age of 15. While I still am passionate about my rock and metal, I have found that with age my taste has diversified so that now I am actually dipping into different musical genres and styles for the first time.
