“Destroyer Of Solace,“ a track off the new album by emotive, epic metal band WHILE HEAVEN WEPT can be streamed here.
Guitarist, song writer and founding member Tom Phillips gives a little insight on the song:
“Jim [Hunter] totally nailed the sick bass run in one take. Clearly, this is Bathory and Immortal inspired yet totally WHW nonetheless. And of course, as with all WHW material, it is rooted in real life events and relationships. Or, rather specifically, one. The bottom line is the is album comes from the deepest wells of my heart, and it really requires several listens to understand… even for me. Anyway, it is the beginning of the end of a process of bereavement that began with the VOL album.”
Fear Of Infinity, the Virginia band’s Nuclear Blast debut, will be released in North America on May 3rd and is the follow-up studio album to 2009’s Vast Oceans Lachrymose.
