Introduce:

1989 – band formed under the name Dream Wytch
1991 – While Heaven Wept insurrected as permanent moniker
1994 – “Into The Wells Of Sorrow” 7”, “Lovesongs Of The Forsaken” demo released
1995 – “Lovesongs Of The Forsaken” MCD released
1997 – split 7” with Cold Mourning released
1998 – “Sorrow Of The Angels” CD released
1999 – most of the current line-up came together
2002 – “Chapter One: 1989-1999” 2LP, “The Drowning Years” 7” released
2003 – “Of Empires Forlorn” CD released, WHW signs with Rage Of Achilles records
2004 – Touring Europe and the US, then recording again!
In April 2005,WHW’d prepared some 10 songs of material for “Vast Oceans Lachrymose” but after learning how meticulously Chris Salamone approached major recordings, WHW ended up cutting the album in half. Tracking continued throughout 2006...
Now they have completed the material for the 4th full-length album “Fear Of Infinity,” and are already rehearsing it currently. The long awaited and often discussed re-recording/re-mixing/re-mastering of “Sorrow Of The Angels” is coming too, along with a similar treatment for “Empires” (Salamone insists he can make it sound even better, and we believe him). The aforementioned brand new song will be coming sooner than later, and will likely be an advance track for "Fear Of Infinity." The truth is there is so much material waiting in the wings, a 5th album isn't too far from being "blueprinting" .
