My Dying Bride

European goth metal band My Dying Bride formed in June 1990. The four-piece first recorded the demo tape Towards the Sinister, and after the release of a 7" single for the French Listenable label, the group signed to Peaceville Records in 1991. My Dying Bride's first release was a 1991 EP, Symphonaire Infernus et Spera Empyrium. Debut album As the Flower Withers appeared the following year, and after touring Great Britain and Europe, the band released another EP, The Thrash of Naked Limbs. Third album Turn Loose the Swans coincided with another European tour, after which the band disappeared for a year. In the meantime, Peaceville issued a box set titled The Stories as well as the three-EP compilation Trinity.

My Dying Bride returned later in 1995 with The Angel and the Dark River, also available in a double pack with a live EP. The band's fourth album, Like Gods of the Sun, appeared in late 1996; 34.7888%...Complete followed two years later, and My Dying Bride was issued in early 2001, along with The Dreadful Hours. After Songs of Darkness, Words of Light in 2004 and just prior to the release of A Line of Deathless Kings in 2006, drummer Shaun Taylor-Steels departed the group due to health concerns. He was followed by bassist Adrian Jackson in 2007, as well as session drummer John Bennett. My Dying Bride rounded out the group with Lena Abé (bass) and Dan Mullins (drums). They released An Ode to Woe in 2008, with For Lies I Sire arriving the following year.

In 2011, MDB celebrated their 20th anniversary by releasing Evinta. The album, it was claimed, was 15 years in the making and resulted in a double-CD (and special edition triple-CD) collection of all new music, arranged "to the soundscapes of sorrows past and hopeless futures." Frontman Aaron Stainthorpe recorded new vocals to some older melodic and textural ideas with help from French soprano Lucie Roche. Evinta's material was arranged by keyboardist Jonny Maudling (Bal-Sagoth), who co-produced the album with Stainthorpe and guitarist Andrew Craighan. ~ John Bush, Rovi

The song that got me into MDB was Black God.
Aweson song from mdb hails

It usually takes a song to pull me into a new band, then I start exploring the rest of the catalog. My Wine in Silence was the song that did it. I've heard it's the more mainstream song, but the heavy part in the middle, which is awesome, balances well the softer parts.
Goth is my genre I love there dark style
Great remake of one of my all time favorite MDB tracks

beautifully said brianna
this has been one of my favorite dark metal bands for a long time now.. since I was a teenager I've always liked them cause there heavy but not so dam fast you can't hear the guitar work, there music is always full of emotion not just anger dark, dread, light hope, then dark again.. smiles just like my soul :)
The first doom metal band I heard My Dying Bride and i have liked the genre ever since
The name of this band has unfortunatel y always turned me off of them... Their name always made me think that they were some emo-pop band or something whenever I heard of them. But damn, this is some pretty awesome doomy goodness, and I'm glad they popped up on my Woods of Ypres-based station.

Good Stuff!!!!
MDB is my absolute favorite band, hands down.
i absoulutely love My Dying Bride!

Oh s**t, new album! Is it any good?

"but I believe he wept"......n i c e lyric
WOW you are lucky Jared.What a great time to see them.but My Dying Bride just keeps getting better and better. Now only if they would come to the States.
What the cuss are you jabbering about Kraven? Who cares which band is "better" (what does that even mean?) I don't listen to My Dying Bride or exclusively, but when I do want to listen to My Dying Bride, NOBODY plays My Dying Bride music better than My Dying Bride. Digest...
is there anyone more opinonated and jaded than aaron,i dont think so my gothiky friends maybe mike tyson,well shoot-those two are some of my personal favorites in their respective professions.
Great band, got to see them live for The Angel and the Dark River. Excellent show.
the new album took a couple listens to get into, but It is a great album. I was really glad to se the return of the violins. as for hooks, fall with me has a really good main riff, and the bring me victory is kinda catchy too.

"My Dying Bride has given the sound of excess a kind of suffocating intimacy; it carries within its menace a heaviness nearly unbearable and a tenderness that is breached at the point of violence. Beautiful, just beautiful." (from the review off of 'Songs of Darkness, Words of Light') That review describes this band perfectly.

Lovely lyrics, lovely sound... indeed, this band pleases me.
I agree with you on the new Album Clockwork..
Kings was muuuuch better.. the new album was a bit boring
sam7704 sleep totally crushes my dying bride. and dont blaspheme sabbath! lol

I love goth and doom, but how may songs can you possibly write in the same key of E? Evidentally (with My Dying Bride) nearly all of them. I like some of their material, however they really need to branch out a little further.

Absolutely mournfull and without a flickering hope to be found. Great stuff if the joy and contentment of life becomes too much to bare.
Such a great band, but very depressing at times
My Hope The Destroyer and The Cry Of Mankind absolutely eat away at my soul. "Doom metal"? I DEFY anyone to find a better doom metal band.
DIRGE...GOOD WORD... DAMM GOOD BAND
Hehe that is m response. Yeah this a moving grim band. guitar drums everything come together. "The Cry of Mankind" is my favorite song also "My Wine in Silence" is a great song. But it is my favorite because somehow for me the guitars play at a good speed but change tempos. For example, BAM sludging along, now BAM back to reglar speed playing awesome piece of music. Love them.
PS love that guitar
Ah, yes, their superior grimness soothes my tortured soul and makes me feel all better!!!! LOL! Mwa-ha-ha-ha - h a ! ! ! ! ! ! !
well you see sir, my space .com recognizes that you are too grim for their commercial pop punk outlook on the world.

hmc7172
this is some good stuff i like 70% so far. hay whats up with my space .com
goth doom death whatever. i will use grim, they are a grim band. thats good.
Yeah these guys aren't goth, they are definitely one of the groups that best exemplifies the genre of Doom/Death. It's a small community but they do their job well...
Le Figlie Della Tempesta! Ah, the beauty! the glorious sadness!
"An Ode to Woe" is great-it includes a DVD with a concert in Amsterdam.Al l recoredings are live sort of a greatest hits record.
I beat Goth-Ann to this one?! Love the MDB sound. This is a great band for getting into that deep dark place... especially for those "special" nights in with a sexy little grave-maiden .
You got a point, big guy66! Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with a good ol' dirge to get the goth blood going. I'll have to check out "Heaven Sent," thanks ravenmaster0 1 !
Yes, bellidanser, most of their songss do sound like a funeral dirge, but isn't that the best kind of music to hear in the mindset of death?
Yes and I think you would be hard pressed to find a cheerful My Dying Bride song maybe "Heaven Sent" is as close as they get,or their cover of "One Velvet Morning"
At the risk of being raked over the coals by every My Dying Bride fan out there, is it me, or do their songs sound like a funeral dirge?
