HERETIC Pays Homage to Black Sabbath with “Anno Mundi” Tribute Video Off New Album “Feast”

The Brasilian Experimental Metal band HERETIC is glad to share a video for “Anno Mundi”, paying homage to one of the main band’s influences: Black Sabbath!

Watch the video for “Anno Mundi”!

The band stated about this song:

"We decided at the last minute to include this track as a bonus. It's a Black Sabbath composition from Tony Martin's era. It was taken from the album “Tyr”. We had two special guests with us: Junao Cananeia, an amazing drummer and Rodolfo Sproesser on the keyboards. They did a stunning job! We love these Black Sabbath's "b-sides" albums with Martin, and we felt that this song would fit great on the concept of Feast."

The band is experiencing a period of great satisfactions. The new album Feast has been released just a few weeks ago and it has been welcomed extremely by the press:

Heretic manages to travel on several roads, but with a cohesive and coherent final result [..] One of the best releases of 2021!

- Blog Arte Metal, 10/10

This experiment was a success of the multinational Heretic project. With Feast the gentlemen release a rich and varied Progressive Metal record with very pleasant Middle Eastern harmonies and rhythms.

- Soundmagnet, 9/10

Deliveringsome Progressive Metal with a notable heaviness in the likes of Gojira, the band continue with their exotic touches of oriental melody, though most of the time these influences have been carefully placed as to not seem out of place and mostly achieve a good effect.

- Bathory Zine, 8/10

Feast has been recorded in Lisbon (Portugal) and Goiânia (Brazil) this year. Mixing and mastering by Guilherme Aguiar, while the artwork is by Romulo Dias.
