"Redemption"
 

Formed in 1992 under the name Disgorged, HEAVENWOOD quickly established themselves as one of the most important Portuguese bands, alongside of MOONSPELL. Despite the tragedy that struck them when their former bassist committed suicide in 1995, HEAVENWOOD signed to Massacre Records and released two albums in the late half of the 1990’s. «Diva» and «Swallow» sold more than 40.000 copies worldwide and put HEAVENWOOD in sucessful European tours with bands such as ATROCITY, IN FLAMES, THEATRE OF TRAGEDY and LAKE OF TEARS, among others. In 1998, high on the track of their «Swallow» album (which featured guest appearances by GAMMA RAYmastermind Kai Hansen and – at the time – THEATRE OF TRAGEDY front lady Liv Kristine), HEAVENWOOD was the first Portuguese band EVER to play in Wacken Open Air. After that, more tours with bands such as ATROCITY, SOLITUDE AETERNUS and SAVIOR MACHINE, but the band quickly folded in a sea of internal problems and line-up changes... until 2008. Then, HEAVENWOOD returned with their third full-lenght album, «Redemption», released on Recital Records! «Redemption» was mixed & mastered by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Soilwork, Amon Amarth) at Fascination Street Studios, in Sweden. The album features all melodic and catchy HEAVENWOOD trades plus a new energy and experience. The recording is still rounded by special guest appearances (Ozzy Osbourne/ FIREWIND’s Gus G, OCEAN OF SADNESS’ Tijs Vanneste and ANNIHILATOR’s Jeff Waters) who not only underline but also sublime Heavenwood’s trademark of Gothic and Dark Metal. 2011 will see HEAVENWOOD returning with «Abyss Masterpiece» , their heavier, dark and intense album ever.
