Virginia’s long running epic metal legends WHILE HEAVEN WEPT are commemorating their 25th year with the release of their sixth full length album “Suspended At Aphelion” via Nuclear Blast this October. The band has recently posted the official lyric video for the track ‘Souls In Permafrost’ online, the video can be seen below:
Commented guitarist, keyboardist & vocalist Tom Philips: “Part 7 of »Suspended At Aphelion« is one of my favorite parts and epitomizes the madness of the album – this is what I’ve meant about music moving in every direction and intense counterpoint – with the angular guitar lines, Jim’s serpentine bassline, the gothic choir chants all juxtaposed beneath Rain’s lead vocal, this ‘rough edit’ of ‘Permafrost’ is about as complex as it gets without being overtly technical/self-aggrandizing…plus it provides a ‘sneak peak’ into what is to come with Part 8 as well!”
The cover art for “Suspended At Aphelion” was once again created by Gustavo Sazes (MORBID ANGEL, ARCH ENEMY etc.), and three separate audio masters were optimized for LP, CD, and digital download formats.
II: Icarus And I
V: Indifference Turned Paralysis
VI: The Memory Of Bleeding
VII: Souls In Permafrost
VIII: Searching The Stars
