Interview (audio):

"Destroyer Of Solace", a brand new song from WHILE HEAVEN WEPT, can be streamed below. The track comes off the band's new album, "Fear Of Infinity", which will be released on April 22 in Europe and May 3 in North America via Nuclear Blast Records.

Tom Phillips stated about the song: "Jim [Hunter] totally nailed the sick bass run in one take.

"Clearly, this is BATHORY- and IMMORTAL-inspired yet totally WHILE HEAVEN WEPT nonetheless. And, of course, as with all WHILE HEAVEN WEPT material, it is rooted in real-life events and relationships. Or, rather specifically, one. The bottom line is the album comes from the deepest wells of my heart, and it really requires several listens to understand... even for me.

"Anyway, it is the beginning of the end of a process of bereavement that began with [2009's] 'Vast Oceans Lachrymose' album."
