Fear Factory Frontman’s Ascension Of The Watchers Debut “Ghost Heart” Video
Fear Factory’s future may be tied up due to ongoing legal issues, but frontman Burton Seabell isn’t letting some pesky former bandmates halt his creativity, bringing his long-running Ascension of the Watchers project back to life with a new album scheduled for release this fall.
Ascension of the Watchers have released a new single, “Ghost Heart,” and a nifty animated video to go along with it. This song has more rock oomph than I remember from AotW, which Burton co-pilots with John Bechdel — it’s kinda heavy, and very gothic in mood — and I’m really digging it. It not only scratches my itch for hearing Seabell’s voice on record again, but it’s just a damn fine song, period. The video’s animations for captivating as well.
Give it a look and a listen below. The new album, Apocrypha, comes out on October 9 via Dissonance Productions.
