Hellraiser has release the album Heritage is a concept album which is characterized by very specific features. It doesn’t speak of a single story nor a single adventure. It is about nine different tales coming from every continent and from different historical periods. Some of them are modern, some others are older, even older than the birth of writing itself. Within this huge chronological and thematic framework, the concept of cultural heritage is the key figure. Whatever the place in the world and whatever the period in history, the human being has always felt the inner need to narrate and express itself and its own life by means of narration. The track Fairy Vail,
It is an heritage for the future generations which find its expression through the tales being transmited from father to son.

The album was recorded by Cesare Capaccioni at Barfly Studio, mixed by Ronnie Milianowicz at Studio Seven and mastered by Tony Lindgren at Fascination Street Studios. Heritage was released in deluxe CD-digipack format.
