It seems My Dying Bride’s all about releasing EPs in recent years, which is fine by me. If they continue at this pace, I could handle short bursts of the band every year as opposed to longer spurts every few years.
Called The Manuscript, the EP will be released on May 13 through Peaceville Records on CD and vinyl.
The Manuscript contains four new and exclusive songs; a dark voyage spanning over 27 minutes of supreme doom in the unmistakable My Dying Bride style of heaviness mixed with dark tales of foreboding.
It was recorded and mixed at Futureworks Studios in Manchester, U.K. with the band’s long-time producer, Rob “Mags” Magoolagan.
The new one “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,” says a press statement.
“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.”
