WHILE HEAVEN WEPT have confirmed their presence to the third edition of the Hammer Of Doom festival taking place in Würzburg, Germany on the 6th of February, 2010.
With the legendary Saint Vitus headlining, the festival promises to be one of the most remarkable live events of the beginning of the new year featuring other great Doom acts such as Griftegard (Sweden), Atlantean Kodex (Germany), and The Wizar'd (Austria) plus others that will be announced shortly.
The release of WHILE HEAVEN WEPT’s long-awaited new album 'Vast Oceans Lachrymose' has created much of a stir in the metal community, with enthusiastic reactions both from the media and fans alike.
'Vast Oceans Lachrymose' has soon been described as one of the year’s highlights, causing much expectation previous to its release just this week (November 3rd) in North America, and being released this Friday (November 6th) in Europe, via Cruz Del Sur Music.
"It's a fantastic work of heavy metal that's undoubtedly deserving of high accolades, and it just might turn out to be my album of the year." 10/10 - MetalReview.com
"They say that you can’t rush perfection, however; a turn-of-phrase which certainly applies to the band’s ambassador, guitarist/keyboardist/vocalist Tom Phillips, whose notoriously perfectionist nature has defied the odds and delivered here once again". - Blistering.com
"Vast Oceans Lachrymose is heavier despite having a less of an imprint of doom. It also reflects more AOR and progressive rock elements while keeping the band’s trademark sound intact." - MetalPsalter.com
