Graspop Metal Meeting: Day One

The Graspop Metal Meeting festival, held annually in the small Belgian town of Dessel, has become one of the highlights of the metal calendar, along with such festivals as Wacken Open Air and Hellfest and this year, the event proved how successful it is by celebrating it's twentieth edition. It was certainly a special way to mark the occassion, booking a number of bands who had never played the festival before but who fans had been clamouring to see. It has always traditionally catered to head bangers of all ages, bringing in bands from the early days of metal to the stars of today, as well as up and comers. Before we go any further, it should be noted that due to scheduling conflicts, some big names either will not be covered in this review, or only mentioned briefly, so don't be disappointed if your favourite band doesn't get the treatment you want, if at all. So, with all that said, just how good can a metal festival in the Flemish region be? Read on, MacDuff.

Arriving on the Thursday, the camp site seemed to be smoother than ever to get in to than previous years. Whether this is because the staff have further improved the planning of the grounds, metal heads have become friendlier over the past four years, or because I've been put on medication since my last visit, we'll never know. Anyway, the general atmosphere at Graspop was, as per usual, a very relaxed one, with people from all over the world coming to listen to and celebrate the music they love so dearly. There are some bands performing on this day too, mostly cover acts such as The Art of Pantera and Diolegacy. It's a good way to get introduced to the festival grounds, get some tokens (imagine Disney money but with skulls on,) and familiarise yourself with the stages, food stalls and the cafe, which is more of a pub with Warlock on full blast.

On to the most important thing however, the music. Kicking off the main stage, or rather, the second main stage as the festival now has two, was hard rock supergroup, The Dead Daisies. The band features a collective of solid names such as Marco Mendoza, Dizzy Reed and former Motley Crue vocalist, John Corabi. Looking at the bands on the members resume such as Guns N Roses, Thin Lizzy and Whitesnake, their good time, hard rocking sound was pretty much what one would expect. This does not, however, stop them from doing their job of getting people on their feet, putting smiles on faces and generally bringing a great vibe to the event that is so vital in making sure a festival gets off to a good start. They're not just a party act either, they've got some genuinly good songs and a number of people seemed to be a little surprised how much they enjoyed the set. Bottom line: If you want to party like it's 1985, go see the Dead Daisies. You'll be glad you did. More...

Peaceville Starts New Podcast

In a new Peaceville podcast series, former Peaceville Records employee, Dave Pybus - responsible for the layout and design of many classic titles (and perhaps more widely known for his time with Anathema and Cradle of Filth) - discusses his days at the company at the start of the 1990s, and talks with some of the bands and artists from back then, reflecting on the ways of the industry and the changes since.

In this first episode of his "Peaceville Days" podcast, Pybus talks with Aaron Stainthorpe of My Dying Bride about the early visions of the band, plus techniques of constructing artwork in the early 90s, along with some of the tribulations involved in the pre-Photoshop era.

Also joining the trip down memory lane is a conversation with artist Dave McKean, himself responsible for some of the early iconic My Dying Bride artwork. More...

My Dying Bride Reveals "The Manuscript"

The UK’s own doomlords, My Dying Bride, have been imposing their legacy for over two decades, since their debut album "As the Flower Withers" surfaced in 1992, & now the Yorkshire titans return with their latest work, "The Manuscript." The album is set for release via Peaceville Records on May 13th on CD & vinyl.

"The Manuscript" contains 4 new songs - a dark voyage spanning over 27 minutes. It was recorded and mixed at Futureworks Studios in Manchester, U.K. with the band’s long-time producer, Mags. As the band comments:

"The Manuscript features four monstrous tracks of brilliantly crafted metal that only My Dying Bride can do, with swathes of doom laden melancholy, harmonic beauty and thundering death metal all combined in their trademark sound. Four tales of tragedy, loss and bitter vengeance greet the listener with an added assault on the emotions too, leaving the soul grey and limp. There is beauty here, but it's carrying a dark blade."

My Dying Bride Working On Four-Song EP

My Dying Bride recently revealed that it will be issuing an EP entitled "The Manuscript" early next year. This is what vocalist Aaron Stainthorpe had to say in a Metal Forces interview about the four-track endeavor that will come out possibly as early as April of 2013:

(The songs are) very similar to 'A Map Of All Our Failures' because they were written and recorded at the same time, except for one song.” It’s full on sort of epic death metal; it’s swords and axes, a proper warrior battle kind of track that’s almost medieval in flavour. You can almost picture the scene; it’s set in a snowy kind of mountainous landscape. There are sound effects and all sorts of mayhem going on in it, and death metal vocals not quite all the way through it, but near enough. It even has a Swedish title which because my Swedish isn’t great, I’m not gonna repeat here. I need to get the pronunciation right before I do that.

We’re probably gonna do a video for the title track which is currently called ‘The Manuscript’. It’s going to be done by Charlie Granberg who did the ‘Bring Me Victory’ video, but prior to that Charlie and My Dying Bride are working on a video for ‘The Poorest Waltz,' the second song on the album. There’s gonna be a video for that as well that will be a shot towards the middle of October. So yeah, a couple of videos from My Dying Bride are coming soon as well.

The Manuscript’s tracks will be similar in length to those included on 'A Map Of All Our Failures.' When we had 13 songs on the computer we were looking at three to four of them, and they were 7:47 which was a bit of a coincidence. We don’t know how or why that happened, but that was the case. There are probably a couple on the EP which are 7:47 as well. A song’s over when it’s over, and the evidence of that is 'The Barghest O’ Whitby.' We don’t try to aim for a three-and-a-half minute track to get a bit of radio airplay – that will never happen from My Dying Bride. If a song happens to be over in three-and-a-half minutes, that’s fine. That was just how it should be, but we never purposely try to write a song with any specific length. We all contribute and when we’re all happy that the song’s over – whether it’s three minutes or 30 minutes – it’s as simple as that.

Sunday Old School: My Dying Bride

To paraphrase an old joke, there was once a band with a sound so loud you could hear them over three fields; Sheffield, Huddersfield and Wakefield. They were formed in another area of Yorkshire named Bradford in 1990 and would become one of the most influential groups in death/doom metal, and they are called, My Dying Bride. The genesis of the band began when guitarist Andrew Craighan and drummer Rick Miah left their previous band, Abiosis and joined forces with singer Aaron Stainthorpe and another guitar player named Calvin Robertshaw. After six months of writing material, they recorded their first demo, "Towards the Sinister," which led them to release their first official single, "God Is Alone" through a French label named, Listenable. The single was limited to one thousand copies, which sold out extremely quickly, and the buzz around the band saw them begin a love affair with Peaceville Records, a company which had previously specialised in anarcho punk bands but had now decided to expand their horizons by signing metal acts such as Paradise Lost, Darkthrone, Anathema and of course, My Dying Bride, who have been loyal to the label ever since signing.

After recruiting a new member in bassist, Adrian Jackson, the band released their first EP, "Symphonaire Infernus et Spera Empyrium" in March of 1992, and two months later released their debut full length, "As the Flower Withers." The album saw the band team with artist Dave McKean, known for his work on the legendary Batman graphic novel, "Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on Serious Ground," and most recently for his work on the Richard Dawkins book, "The Magic of Reality," but more importantly, it saw the band begin to break through into the modern metal consciousness, allowing them to perform in mainland Europe, as well as embarking on a big tour in their native, Great Britain. The band then decided to broaden their sound by hiring Martin Powell as their keyboardist and violinist. Powell made his recording debut with the band on their next EP, "The Thrash of Naked Limbs," which was released in February 1993. While filming a video for the title track, Miah had a nasty fall which forced the group to cancel their tour in support of the record. Instead, the band got to work on their second album, "Turn Loose the Swans," which was met with a very strong response, with Rolling Stone describing it as, "Bram Stoker’s ‘Dracula’ for the ears." They continued to tour Britain and Europe and released another EP named, "I Am the Bloody Earth" in January the next year. More...
