We have heard your calls! After the incredible response to While Heaven Wept‘s brand new album “Vast Oceans Lachrymose” – which continues to receive the very highest of accolades worldwide, Cruz Del Sur Music, as well as the continued demands from their audience, have finally convinced the band to re-issue their long out-of-print past albums “Sorrow Of The Angels” and “Of Empires Forlorn” in limited-editions of 1000 hand-numbered CD’s each!!!

This is a rare opportunity for everyone who missed these masterpieces of epic doom metal history the first time around to buy these at new-release prices (as opposed to the outrageous amounts these albums sometimes fetch on eBay). Both albums feature updated cover art, new pictures, and new liner notes from mainman Tom Phillips. The audio content is identical to the original Eibon Records (“Sorrow Of The Angels”) and Rage Of Achilles Records (“Of Empires Forlorn”) releases so as to preserve the integrity of the original albums.

These re-issues will be strictly limited to 1000 copies, with absolutely no re-pressing whatsoever at the request of While Heaven Wept themselves. Both albums will be released simultaneously at the end of January 2010, just in time for the bands’ appearance at Hammer Of Doom III in Wurzburg, Germany on February 6th.
