»Suspended At Aphelion« is undoubtedly their most ambitious, epic, and progressive album so far, featuring a single track divided into 11 parts, performed by the entire »Fear Of Infinity« line-up as well as several esteemed guests, including FATES WARNING alumni drummer Mark Zonder and co-founding guitarist Victor Arduini - uniting two eras of FATES WARNING for the first time ever.
Victor Arduini commented: "Being asked to contribute to WHILE HEAVEN WEPT newest creation will be a highlight in my career. This CD is something very special. Rest assured this will stand tall among some of the great progressive masterpieces of all time. Like nothing you've heard before. Truly epic at all levels."
The international media already praises the album as the following quotes display:
"Given that WHILE HEAVEN WEPT have existed for a quarter of a century without the respect that their music deserves, the metal world should perhaps be ashamed of itself. From the textured bombast of ‘Icarus And I’ to the fragile balladry of ‘Heartburst’, »Suspended At Aphelion« deserves to announce them, somewhat belatedly, onto the world stage"
Dave Ling (Metal Hammer, UK)
"Time and time again this record washes us over with inescapable pleasantries and harmonies that resonate infinitely in the mind. I'm genuinely having difficulty getting my head around the scope of this creation, and it's doing my head in because I cannot coherently describe its grandeur in entirety. I might never be able to, no matter how many times I loop it; what a deliciously excellent excuse to have it on repeat."
Daniel Fox (Metal-Temple)
"Future generations will not only be raving about »2112«, »Misplaced Childhood«, and »No Exit«, but now also »Suspended At Aphelion«. An epoch-making masterpiece"
Michael Haifl (Streetclip TV)
"With this jewel, WHILE HEAVEN WEPT have earned their place in the Progressive Metal pantheon"
Chris Karadimitris (Rocking.gr)
"Believe me, there is SO much to discover and hear on this excellent album. This is inspired music, music for the mind AND soul"
Chris Papadakis (Forgotten Scroll)
"If you like Progressive Metal with a majestic bombast and heartfelt vocals, you need to listen to this album - it is a true masterpiece"
Rob Pociluk (Power Of Metal.dk)
The cover art for »Suspended At Aphelion« was once again created by Gustavo Sazes (MORBID ANGEL, ARCH ENEMY etc.), and three separate audio masters were optimized for LP, CD, and digital download formats.
WHILE HEAVEN WEPT also reunited with producer/engineer Kevin "131" Gutierrez (RAVEN, DECEASED, DYSRHYTHMIA) at Assembly Line Studios for the recording of »Suspended At Aphelion« 12 years after creating their classic »Of Empires Forlorn« album together, solidifying an already strong team for their most epic of epics!
