My Dying Bride: nieuwe plaat, nieuwe single

Leestijd: 2 minuten

De vooruitzichten in 2020 zijn voor de liefhebbers van My Dying Bride erg goed gesteld. De befaamde metalband zal namelijk met een nieuwe studioplaat gaan komen. Tevens is de eerste single al online beluisteren.

In maart zal My Dying Bride met The Ghost Of Orion gaan komen. Voor de pioniers van de death/doom wordt het de eerste plaat sinds het in 2015 uitgekomen Feel The Misery. The Ghost Of Orion, welke op de zesde van maart verschijnt, zal via Nuclear Blast uit gaan komen. Zijn voorganger deed dat nog via Peaceville Records.

Om de fans alvast lekker te maken, heeft My Dying Bride ‘Your Broken Shore’ al online gezet. Dat nummer kan middels de verschillende streamingsdiensten geluisterd worden. Op 10 januari zal de officiële video voor deze track te zien gaan zijn.

Zanger Aaron Stainthorpe over “The Ghost Of Orion”:
“A new album for a new era of MY DYING BRIDE with fresh faces and a more accessible style compared to some of their past, highly technical releases. ‘The Ghost of Orion’ features compositions not only of epic proportions but of intimate quality too, from death metal vocals to the pained cries of a vocalist in longing, the L.P. will raise and fall like the beautiful landscape of Yorkshire in which it was recorded. With layer upon layer of guitars both heavy and harmonic, Andrew Craighan has created a rich soundscape that is beautifully epic, enhanced with violins and keys from Shaun MacGowan along with the ominous murmur of cello from acclaimed cellist Jo Quail. And speaking of guest artists, the wondrous voice of Lindy-Fay Hella (WARDRUNA) adds an ethereal beauty to the album. Adding his particular style of drumming this time round is Jeff Singer who’s’ percussion exploits have elevated the bands’ rhythm section to another level aided by the effortlessly stylish Lena Abe on bass guitar. Aaron Stainthorpe delivers a compelling and often disturbing performance with his own particular style of vocals offering sincere eulogies along with the visceral carnage of a soul in pain, with poetic lyrics of a quality not often seen in this genre. This collection of songs is the bands most brilliant yet, honing 30 years of experience into the well crafted offering that is ‘The Ghost of Orion’.”
