WHILE HEAVEN WEPT
FEAR OF INFINITY
Virginia metal unit While Heaven Wept presents a mix of power metal majesty and doom metal dread on their latest seven-track affair FEAR OF INFINITY. Trading off between morose melodies (“Destroyer of Solace”) and supercharged traditional metal compositions, this sextet’s keyboard heavy sound fluctuates between intense moments of reflection (“To Grieve Forever”) and bludgeoning metallic fury (“Hour of Reprisal”) with strong vocals presiding over the proceedings to render a rousing metal album ripe with emotion. If you’re looking for the perfect amalgamation of the technicality of Dream Theater and the oppressive nature of Candlemass, this seasoned unit is the perfect choice.
