WHILE HEAVEN WEPT: Live Album Details Announced

Virginia-based epic doom metallers WHILE HEAVEN WEPT will release a new live album, "Triumph: Tragedy: Transcendence - Live At The Hammer Of Doom Festival", in November.

"Triumph: Tragedy: Transcendence" will be made available as a CD/DVD set courtesy of Cruz Del Sur Music, as well as a 2xLP set via a joint collaboration between Cruz Del Sur Music, Iron Kodex, and High Roller Records. The DVD portion will contain several bonus features that will be detailed after the band will finish the studio work on the masters.

The release is a stunning 24-track audio capture of WHILE HEAVEN WEPT's performance at the Posthalle in Würzburg, Germany on February 6, 2010. The final master will be later synchronized to the multi-camera pro-shot footage, resulting in the band's very first DVD. This release is guaranteed to take all fans by surprise, considering the awesome quality of both audio and video materials.

The philosophy behind this release is twofold; First, it is an expression of gratitude to everyone who attended the show — who made it such a special, unforgettable experience for the band. Secondly, being that there are so many fans of the band who they've not been able to reach tour-wise, this record should help tide those fans over until WHILE HEAVEN WEPT can make it to their town.

In the words of WHILE HEAVEN WEPT's Tom Phillips, "The audio quality of this release is incredible — perhaps in some ways better than even 'Vast Oceans Lachrymose' — along with the excellent energy of the performances and the excitement of the improvisations. The video is even more amazing, so expertly filmed and edited by our friends at Streetclip TV in Germany."
