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...

70,000 Tons of Metal Day 3: To Hell in Paradise

Cautiously opening a bleary eye on day 3 soon showed that the Majesty of the Seas was behind schedule and did not arrive in the Cayman Islands until an hour past the scheduled time for 9am. This was fine for me, after last night's late one - I went for some breakfast and lots of much-needed coffee. The weather was a little threatening to start with, with some angry looking clouds.

70,000 Tons of Metal 2012 Day 2: A Sea of Metal

My fellow cruise ship warriors and I awoke on day 2 to a cloudless sunny sky and blue oceans as far as the eye could see in every direction. With the movement of the boat barely noticable, I went to find my friends - mobile phone communication had been impossible since the previous evening, so if you wanted to find someone, you had to know where they would be. I found them at the buffet, where metalheads in varying stages of wakefulness were ploughing through mountains of eggs, bacon, sausages and pancakes. Tea and coffee were the more popular beverages but the drinks waiters were already getting busy ferrying beers back and forth. More...

Re-recording Metal - For Better or for Worse?

Back in 2005, Dimmu Borgir was a band still basking in the unholy success of its latest outing “Death Cult Armageddon.” And yet instead of launching into a new opus for fans to consume the band members decided on a new approach; they would re-release an early and often praised album (“Stormblåst”) by completely re-recording it, updating the sound with modern production and slap “MMV” on the end. There had of course been prior examples of bands making this choice, but it was perhaps here that best truly crystallized the new era of metal re-recordings. No doubt you have heard of similar re-recordings in the same vein, perhaps most recently Gorgoroth’s “Under the Sign of Hell 2011” or Burzum’s “From the Depths of Darkness”? Perhaps not, but that’s what I aim to uncover for you here. More...
