Heaven Below is the self-titled EP from rock ensemble Heaven Below. The album was released on August 17, 2010.

Composition[edit]

The band had been closing shows on their then recent inaugural tour with audience favorite "Ace of Spades" by Motörhead.[1] At one of their rehearsals, Patrick Kennison jokingly sung "Heartbreaker" by Pat Benatar over the instrumentals for "Ace of Spades". Because the band enjoyed how "Heartbreaker" sounded, they decided to record a studio version of the song.[2]

In addition to the six main tracks, the album contains a CD with 4 bonus tracks and 4 music videos,[3] one of which is "Twilight Zone", originally recorded by Dutch rock band Golden Earring.[4]

Critical reception[edit]

Marissa Brown from Artistdirect, described the EP as a "Most brilliantly bludgeoning performance" while Robert Foster from Metal Edge stated that "Every track explodes with expression". Blabbermouth.net[5] as well as Brave Words & Bloody Knuckles both noted that "despite being such a young band, they can easily keep pace with the top dogs of the current rock scene".[6]
