With industrial-metal powerhouses FEAR FACTORY currently in legal limbo, singer Burton C Bell has resurrected his other band ASCENSION OF THE WATCHERS and delivered their first single in more than a decade.

Ghost Heart is a slab of tremendous atmospheric gothic-industrial noise that evokes mid-80s KILLING JOKE rather than FEAR FACTORY’s machine-gunning heaviness (unsurprising given Bell’s musical partner in AotW is former KILLING JOKE man John Bechdel). 
It’s accompanied by a spectacular animated video directed by Victor Hugo-Borge. Or, as Bell puts it: “A surreal landscape for the cinematic tones that is Ghost Heart.”
The song is taken from ASCENSION OF THE WATCHERS’ upcoming fourth album – and their first since 2008 - Apocrypha, due out on October 9.
