Pitchfork.com is hosting the world premiere of the track “Heartburst,” a mournful lament off Suspended At Aphelion, the sixth studio album by Virginia's long running epic metallers WHILE HEAVEN WEPT. “The album revels in its theatricality, its baroque orchestration and rippling leads polished to a fine sheen,” praises Pitchfork journalist Kim Kelly. “The overall effect is nothing short of triumphant.” Stream “Heartburst” in its entirety here: http://pitchfork.com/thepitch/513-hell-awaits-atomikyla-owls-blood-nihill-and-more/ About WHILE HEAVEN WEPT’s latest album (comprised of a single track divided into 11 parts), guitarist & songwriter Tom Phillips has previously stated: “We all have dreams, aspirations, and desires. Most of us pursue them with passion... with all the strength, faith, and hope that we can find inside of ourselves. Unfortunately, sometimes this isn't enough, and we ultimately have to come to terms with that which is unreachable. Suspended At Aphelion is the story of one such dream, but it will resonate differently for each listener. We all have our suns that remain untouchable.” Suspended At Aphelion will be released digitally by Nuclear Blast on November 18th and is currently available for pre-order at the following digital outlets: • Amazon MP3 – http://geni.us/WHWaphelionAMZMP3 • iTunes - http://geni.us/WHWaphelionITunes • Google Play – http://smarturl.it/WHW-Aphelion-Google Fans can view the “Icarus And I” lyric video and previous album trailers on the Nuclear Blast YouTube channel: www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLB4brr7vf-P6URIffxQRZVczsll4vBhOr WHILE HEAVEN WEPT reunited with producer/engineer Kevin "131" Gutierrez (RAVEN, DECEASED, DYSRHYTHMIA) at Assembly Line Studios in Vienna, Virginia.
