|Künstler||MY DYING BRIDE|
2010 marks the 20th anniversary of the UK doom titans, My Dying Bride. To commemorate two decades of doom and gloom the band embarked upon a project to re-work familiar melodies and themes from their extensive catalogue into long, flowing symphonic compositions, incorporating new vocals and passages from Aaron Stainthorpe.
These arrangements have been brought to life in co-operation with keyboard maestro Johnny Maudling (of Bal Sagoth fame) and will be released as Evinta, a special 2 disc set, each disc its own sprawling classical work spanning a large period of My Dying Bride’s album material.
“Evinta. A project almost 15 years in the making. An idea that has sat smoldering and never really had a reason to burn alive until now. 9 albums worth of darkness recreated anew to mark 20 years of MDB. Music arranged to the soundscapes of sorrows past. Finally the 20th anniversary allows us to release this music in a form it has been desperately, woefully waiting for. Enjoy the Darkness.” - ANDREW CRAIGHAN – MY DYING BRIDE
My Dying Bride has been the leading light of doom metal since their debut album As the Flower Withers was released on Peaceville Records back in 1992. Influenced by acts such as Celtic Frost and Candlemass, the band’s heavy atmospherics have carved a huge worldwide following over the years and they remain at the pinnacle of the genre
