WHILE HEAVEN WEPT Release Details For Upcoming Live Album

Virginia's epic doom metal unit WHILE HEAVEN WEPT have this week put the finishing touches on their massive upcoming live album 'Triumph:Tragedy:Transcendence - Live At The Hammer Of Doom Festival'. On the live release coming together, frontman Tom Phillips states: "The performance features an equal balance of material from all of our albums, and features a good amount of improvisation ala Rainbow circa 1976, making this a very special release indeed."
