WHILE HEAVEN WEPT - Lyric Video For New Track Released

Epic doom metal legends While Heaven Wept returns with a new, sixth album this autumn and with this release the Virginia's long running act commemorates their 25th anniversary. Album is named Suspended At Aphelion and will hit the stores through Nuclear Blast Records on 24th October in Europe and on 27th October in North America. Now the band releases the lyric video for the album track "Icarus And I" and you can hear it below.
Commented guitarist, keyboardist & vocalist Tom Philips: ""Icarus And I" is Part 2 out of 11 and establishes the foundation of Suspended At Aphelion’s plot: the pursuit of the sun with passion and vigor, only to succumb to the reality that it is beyond reach. That is really what Suspended At Aphelion is all about: being instead condemned to the furthest point from the sun... the failure to achieve the dream - despite all the faith, hope, spirit, strength, and heart any one of us could muster. And musically, there are so many more twists, turns, modulations, so much more madness that follows this, it's impossible to represent the totality of this song with any individual part, however "Icarus And I" was the inception of what we feel is the most gratifying journey in the history of While Heaven Wept." Suspended At Aphelion is undoubtedly their most ambitious, epic, and progressive album so far featuring a single track divided into 11 parts, performed by the entire Fear Of Infinity line-up as well as several esteemed guests, including Fates Warning alumni drummer Mark Zonder and co-founding guitarist Victor Arduini - uniting two eras of Fates Warning for the first time ever. The cover art 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. Link
