»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.

John Arch (original FATES WARNING vocalist and ARCH/MATHEOS) comments: "I love the new music. The guitar work and writing has reached a new level. The band sounds super and Rain's voice is just fantastic. No fancy words here. Just f'n great." 

 
Victor Arduini (original FATES WARNING guitarist/co-founder and »Suspended At Aphelion« guest) adds: "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."

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!
