Everything starts with Einsk (he joined the band in summer 2005). Suddenly Heiden was a regular band, has had a new blood and lot of ideas to think about. Musically Heiden expanded their sound by incorporating elements from Rock or Doom metal stuff, but still keeping their Black metal roots. Finding a solution means also few songs recorded in this period and released on “Era 2” (debut album for Heiden as a regular band) and successful split CD “Trollech vs Heiden” released under a banner of NAGA productions.
In May 2007 Kalanis (bass) left a band due to disagreements and his post was replaced by dalias qelhma (ex-Hyperborean Desire). Things move on, autumn 2007 - spring 2009 was a period of focussing and development of second full-lenght Heiden album, stuff based on decadent poetry and mainly melancholic moods. Album was recorded in famous Shaark studio (Master, Root, Equirhodont etc.) and released on 3rd of March 2009 by NAGA productions. "Obsidian" means huge step forward for Heiden as a band (and individualities as well). Reviews were really impressive and Heiden corroborated their position in Czech metal scene. 2009 - 2011 was period of changes and personal problems as well as writting and focussing of third full-lenght Heiden album called "Dolores".
In May 2009 dalias qelhma quit his playing with the band because of different point of view on musical direction. New bassist Magua joined the band a few months later and writting finally move on. Eight new songs were recorded in Shaark recording studio and released by NAGA productions in November 2011. Heiden became one of the most respected names in Czech metal scene.
"Dolores" won Anděl 2011 award (czech Grammy) in hard'n'heavy category as well as Břitva 2011 award for album of the year.
