While Heaven Wept Quotes
We first formed under the moniker of Dream Wytch in November 1989. Co-founder, guitarist Chris Galvan and I had both spent time in a power metal band called Polaris, and upon the demise of that band we decided to do something more diverse musically. At the time our music was very much a hybrid of neo-classical thrash, doom, and progressive metal, and strictly musically based; there weren’t really any other motives, and lyrically, although personal, the songs were more fantasy oriented.
Almost everything I hear affects the music I compose – some things are inspirational in a positive way, other things encourage me to write in as opposite an approach as possible. In the very beginning we were influenced by Candlemass, Trouble, Black Sabbath, Fates Warning, Queensryche, Yngwie Malmsteen, Rush, Coroner, Voivod, Slayer, Bathory, Dark Angel, Kitaro, plus a lot of classical music and fusion jazz as well. Most of those influences remain intact to this day, but I definitely keep up with all the new artists and new releases, which contribute to our ever-evolving sound.
