My Dying Bride is a Doom metal band that was at the forefront of the
English Doom movement in the early 90s that included such bands as the
former label mates Anathema and Paradise Lost. Formed in West Yorkshire,
England, they are known for their slow yet extremely heavy riffs and
haunting lyrics. Relentlessly slow, thick, heavy chords allied with
remarkably morose lyrics make My Dying Bride a unique proposition and
certainly a challenge to the listener. Since its debut, the Halifax
based band has remained steadfast in an unwavering pursuit of extreme
Metal despite, ironically enjoying the rewards of an international fan
base despite the noncommercial nature of its output.

The initial formation numbered vocalist Aaron Stainthorpe, guitarists
Andrew Craighan and Calvin Robertshaw plus drummer Rick Miah, who
founded the band in 1990. The band released the ‘Towards The Sinister’
demo, noted for its complete absence of bass, recorded over two days in
late November at Revolver Studios with Tim Walker manning the production
desk. They followed this with the ‘God Is Alone’ 7” single, restricted
to 1000 copies, on the French Listenable label, again utilising both Tim
Walker and Revolver Studios in May 1991. The band signed to budding
Yorkshire label Peaceville Records to release the ‘Symphonaire Infernus
Et Spera Empyrum’ EP in 1992, debuting new bassist Ade Jackson in the

My Dying Bride’s first full-length album ,’As The Flower Withers’
arriving in May 1992, established the band among press and fans alike.
Jointly produced by label mentor Hammy and the band, the record stunned
many critics, who struggled to find suitable descriptives to capture the
radical nature of this work. In the midst of this confusion, few would
disagree that My Dying Bride had, in one fell swoop, turned the Doom
genre on its head.

The group had driven deep into the core essence of doom, drastically
overhauling every aspect of its composition. The album opened somewhat
coyly with an orchestral exercise in deceit before the Latin lyricised
‘Sear Me’ challenged immediately. Songs were drawn out into near
unbearable dirges, capped by the twin violin imbued colossi of ‘The
Bitterness and the Bereavement’ and ‘The Return of the Beautiful’,
Stainthorpe’s prose held closer to the great British poets than standard
rock n’ roll and their deliberately infantile daubed logo logo also
challenged convention. ‘As The Flower Withers’ was boldly offered up as a
cornerstone of a new approach, undoubtedly spawning the successive
drone movement.

‘As The Flower Withers’ provided the opportunity for their first tour of
Europe. The progress gained by another EP, 1993’s ‘The Thrash Of Naked
Limbs’, was marred by drummer Rick badly damaging his hand, thus
canceling a projected tour with G.G.F.H. Prior to the groundbreaking
1993 ‘Turn Loose The Swans’ album, which came in three different
sleeves, the band added violinist / keyboardist Martin Powell to the
band and toured Europe once more. ‘Turn Loose The Swans’, incepting with
the piano and violin lament of ‘Sear Me MCMXC III’ and hinged on the
utterly woeful ‘The Crown Of Sympathy’, slowed the pace even further and
plunged ever deeper into slug like doom. Another set of EPs, ‘Sexuality
Of Bereavement’ and ‘I Am The Bloody Earth’, kept the momentum going
during 1994.

‘The Angel And The Dark River’ was delivered during May 1995 and, in a
rare high profile moment of mainstream activity, My Dying Bride gigged
as support to Iron Maiden across Europe. ‘The Angel And The Dark River’,
six slabs of morose melancholy, marked a shift in the band’s strategy,
for the first time dropping the Death growl of Stainthorpe in favor of a
“clean” vocal delivery. Fans were quick to hail opener ‘Cry Of Mankind’
as a classic, even though the mind numbing repeat keyboard mantra of
the outro dragged on for a full five minutes. Limited editions of this
record included a second disc of live material recorded at the Dynamo in

My Dying Bride’s fourth full-length endeavour, ‘Like Gods Of The Sun’,
hit home in October 1996 in similar bleak fashion to its predecessor.
Touring in Europe during March 1997 saw the band forming up a package
billing alongside Therion, Sentenced, Orphanage and Dark for the ‘Out Of
The Dark III’ festivals. However, drummer Rick departed and for their
1998 album sessions My Dying Bride pulled in the services of Year Zero
and Valle Crusis drummer Mike Unsworth in order to fill the gap.
Acquired to handle keyboards would be Yasmin Ahmid of Ebony Lake.

October 1998 saw My Dying Bride issuing the experimental ‘34.788%…
Complete’ album with yet another new drummer ex-Dominion man Bill Law.
The record witnessed a deliberate break from the expected Gothic imagery
associated with the band and provided a challenge for their existing
fan base. A sharp division of opinion branded the album either as a
somnambulistic, self indulgent failure or a richly rewarding diversion.
Stainthorpe’s vocals on ‘34.788%… Complete’ took on a heavily distorted
air, keyboards and samples usurped guitars and song structures ebbed and
flowed without formal structure. Undoubtedly the most adventurous assay
of the band’s entire catalogue came with ‘Heroin Chic’, a mechanical,
expletive infested industrial male / history telling duet with a
guesting Michelle Richfield of Dominion.

The band remained strangely inactive on the touring front though as
guitarist Calvin Robertshaw departed. He would swiftly be replaced by
erstwhile Solstice, Serenity and Khang member Lee Baines. The ‘Light At
The End Of The World’ album would be viewed not just as a welcome return
to form, including a reprise for Stainthorpe’s early growling, after
the side step braved by ‘34.788%… Complete’ but even as being one of the
finests outings of the genre. For touring commitments in 1999 the band
pulled in Bal Sagoth’s Jonny Maudling for live keyboards. The band’s
more permanent line up was completed with the addition of erstwhile
Anathema and Solstice drummer Shaun Taylor-Steels and former Solstice
guitarist Hamish Glencross.

The 2002 offering ‘The Dreadful Hours’ included a re-make of ‘The Return
Of The Beautiful’ from the debut record, re-billed as ‘Return To The
Beautiful’. My Dying Bride themselves witnessed a change of keyboard
players in April 2002 when Sarah Stanton took over from Yasmin Ahmed. My
Dying Bride also announced the release of their first live album,
‘Voice Of The Wretched’, the same month. Hamish Glencross and Andrew
Craighan launched their BlackDoom Record label in 2003. My Dying Bride
put in a short burst of European dates in October of 2003, supported by
UK act The Prophecy, the first signing to the BlackDoom label.

The band returned in March of 2004 with the album ‘Songs Of Darkness,
Words Of Light’, warning fans in advance that change was in the air and
that the track ‘My Wine In Silence’ was their most commercial effort to
date. In late December Shaun Steels injured his ankle in a canoeing
accident. The band drafted John Bennett from The Prophecy as stand in
whilst Steels recovered.

Releases announced in early 2005 included the retrospective box set
‘Anti-Diluvian Chronicles’, which included new remixes of ‘The Wreckage
Of My Flesh’, ‘My Wine In Silence’ and ‘The Raven And The Rose’, plus
the live DVD ‘Sinamorata’, recorded in Antwerp, Belgium during October
2003. This latter release also featured two video shorts made by My
Dying Bride fans, ‘My Hope, The Destroyer’ and ‘My Wine In Silence’.

In September 2005 it was learned that erstwhile keyboard player Martin
Powell and his ex-Cradle Of Filth colleague guitarist James McIlroy had
united with ex-Himsa guitarist Matt Wicklund in a brand new band project
called Prey. Meantime, My Dying Bride returned to live action in the UK
during November.

The album ‘A Line Of Deathless Kings’ was recorded during mid 2006 at
Academy Studios in Dewsbury and mixed at Chapel Studios in Lincolnshire.
The accompanying single, ‘Deeper Down’, hitting number 15 on the
Finnish charts, was issued as an “Uberdoom” edit with exclusive studio
track ‘The Child Of Eternity’.

5th January 2007 bassist Adrian Jackson left the band. Long term stand
in drummer John Bennet was also reported to have parted ways. New
bassist is called Lena Abé and the new drummer is Dan Mullins (formerly
of Thine, Bal Sagoth and Sermon Of Hypocrisy).
Various european dates have been confirmed.

In April 28th, 2008 My Dying Bride released the live album entitled An
Ode to Woe Recorded live at the Paradiso, Amsterdam, Holland, in April
2007 containing 12 tracks. Disc 2 is a DVD with the bonus track The

My Dying Bride

My Dying Bride were formed by Aaron, Andy, Calvin and Rick in the summer
of 1990, and after only 6 months of writing together released the now
legendary demo Towards The Sinister. Progress continued apace with the
release of their first 7" single God Is Alone for the small French label
Listenable Records. The single sold out almost immediately causing
eager whispers in the underground, bringing them to the attention of
Peaceville Records, who offered the band a deal.

The first release from this now infamous pairing was the EP Symphonaire
Infernus Et Spera Empyrium (featuring the bands newest recruit Ade on
bass), shortly followed by the band's first full-length album As The
Flower Withers, avant-garde doom metal was born.

The band followed the release with a series of shows in the UK and
mainland Europe. The response was phenomenal, and spurring the band on
it wasn't long before they were back in the studio recording their
second EP The Thrash Of Naked Limbs. A full length tour of Europe was
planned with Sickodelic label mates G.G.F.H. but this was pulled at the
last minute when MDB's drummer Rick had a bad fall while making the
accompanying video. The video was a huge success with the MTV metal
hordes and the EP flew high into the Kerrang charts. Fans and critics
hailed the band as pioneers of the new doom-gothic metal genre. Pushing
these new boundaries even further, MDB recruited long time session
musician and classically trained violin and piano player Martin Powell
as a full time member. Writing then begun in earnest for their second
album Turn Loose The Swans, released in 1993 a huge European tour was
planned to coincide with the release, the album received rave reviews
and apart from illness, theft and motor breakdown's the tour was a huge

In '94 the band kept up the flow by releasing the I Am The Bloody Earth
EP, and then settled down to write material for their third album, The
Angel And The Dark River. The album was released in 1995 and an opus was
born. Six epic tracks, averaging around nine minutes each immersed the
listener in MDB's full sinister glory. By now the band were at the very
forefront of the advanced metal scene, hailed in the press and with a
flurry of like-minded bands following in their shadows, they again
launched a successful live assault on Europe, culminating in some high
profile festival appearances, including the famous Dynamo Metal Festival
in Holland. 1995 was also the year that the band released Trinity a
single CD compilation of the first 3 EP's, if that wasn't enough they
where invited on the road by the mighty Iron Maiden\. This saw 1995
rounded off nicely, the tour; a 3-month hike around Europe was awesome
and saw MDB win over thousands of die-hard Iron Maiden fans every night.

Still happily married to Peaceville, the band, always one step ahead,
released their fourth album Like Gods of the Sun in 1996. Again a rich
work of art. Experience and careful attention to detail resulted in a
much cleaner sound. Sarnies n clean socks packed they toured Europe,
this time with Cathedral. Demand being so great they did it all over
again in '97 with Sentenced. '97 was also the year that saw MDB hotfoot
it to the US, to support Dio. Being well versed in all things MDB the US
crowds went loco. Alas, with only a few weeks of the tour left, the
band had to pull out when Rick the drummer contracted a debilitating
illness, which sadly resulted in the original member having to leave the
band altogether. Help came in the form of Bill Law, drummer with label
mates Dominion, and work got under way writing the fifth album,
enigmatically titled 34.788%... Complete.

At this time Martin also left the band. The album was as different as
the title suggests, still full of MDB 'isms' it was daringly
experimental, resulting in an overall sound more akin to Tricky than MDB
of old. The album had a bit of a mixed response, the critics loved it,
and praised the leap of faith, though the fans took a while longer to
work things out, despite this the album did manage healthy sales. Bill, a
native of Canada saw his visa run out and was gone. The band decided
not to tour and instead concentrate on solidifying the line up. Help
came in the form of Shaun Steels, ex drummer with Anathema.

After all the changes they'd recently encountered they were surprised at
how quickly the new line up gelled, inspiring writing to begin for the
sixth album The Light At The End Of The World. The album was released in
1999 and saw a return of the older MDB style, but with a whole new
perspective on the sound. Shortly after the album was recorded the band
enlisted guitarist Hamish Glencross as a replacement for Calvin, who had
left after 34.788% Complete.

Following touring Europe promoting The Light At The End Of The World,
2000 saw MDB working hard on new material, and also working hand in hand
with Peaceville on a retrospective of their work with the label to
date, the manifestation being two full length CD's, containing rare
tracks, live tracks, demo tracks, brand new art work and a video track.
The first, entitled Meisterwerk I was released in October, followed hot
on the heels in January 2001 with Meisterwerk II.

In August 2001 armed with an arsenal of new material the band hit the
new relocated and upgraded Academy Studios to record their seventh
studio album, The Dreadful Hours. As ever Mags engineered and also
co-produced with guitarist Andrew Craighan. Keyboard duties fell to Bal
Sagoth's Jonny Maudlin, with, 'not quite member, not quite session
musician' Yasmin Ahmed performing keyboards on A Cruel Taste Of Winter.
The Dreadful Hours received stunning reviews from the international
metal press, re-affirming My Dying Bride as the godfathers of doom.
Asked to describe the album, guitarists Andy explained, "I'm trying to
create an atmosphere of angst, of almost relentless misery. So much
misery that you just can't take it"

Encouraged by the success of the album the first ever MDB/Peaceville DVD
was released in April 2002 - 2.5 hours of material - including a
stunning live performance from Krakow Poland - with plenty of extra live
footage (more gigs) and a chance to peek at vocalist Aaron's stunning
collection of artwork. This was followed by MDB's first ever Live CD -
The Voice Of The Wretched, filmed at the now infamous Peacefest finale
at the luxurious 013 Club in Tilburg, Holland in March 2001. Again the
album received an amazing response from the media - garnering many
10/10-review scores.

The band rounded off the year by playing all the European
metal/alternative festivals, including Wacken, Graspop and Bospop with
new keyboard player Sarah Stanton added to the ranks. In 2003 MDB
settled into work on their follow up to The Dreadful Hours. With plenty
of ideas already formulated the band were keen to keep up momentum. In
the summer of '03 My Dying Bride found themselves again at Academy with
Mags in the production seat. The result of that recording session was
the stunning Songs Of Darkness, Words of Light LP, MDB's eighth studio
album. The album was released to huge press commendation in March 2004.
The band played many live dates and festivals around Europe to promote
the album. They also recorded their first promo video since "For You"
for the track Prize Of Beauty.

At the end of 2004, My Dying Bride got together with artist and video
director Dave Palser - they originally worked with Dave on the video
"Cry Of Mankind", always hailed as the best My Dying Bride video. Due to
the success of the Prize Of Beauty, they decided to make a video with
Dave for the "Blue Lotus". The video was completed in early 2005
featured heavily on the metal music channels. Also in May 2005, the band
released a three-CD box set: Anti - Diluvian Chronicles. This contains
new re-workings of three classic My Dying Bride songs - "My Wine In
Silence", "The Raven and The Rose" and "The Wreckage Of My Flesh";
(Academy Studios 2005). This mammoth 29-song box set comes with a poster
and a full and exclusive interview with the enigmatic front man Aaron -
conducted by one of the UK's most enduring metal journalists, Dom
Lawson of Kerrang! A great place to start if you're just getting into
the band. Not to mention highly collectable.

September 2005 saw the release of My Dying Bride's second long-form DVD
entitled Sinamorata. Among the goodies on offer on the DVD is a full
live concert performance, filmed @ Antwerp's Hof Ter Lo venue in
November of 2003. The two new promo videos, along with some videos shot
by fans, more live concert footage a much more. The band have been kept
busy writing material for the new album, but took time out in November
'05 to play The Astoria, and also play their first home town gig in four
years at Bradford Rio's.

The band entered Academy Studios in Spring 2006 to record the follow up
to Songs Of Darkness, entitled A Line of Deathless Kings. Drums were
handled by John Bennett of fellow Yorkshire doomsters, The Prophecy, and
as always, long-time collaborator and producer Mags took control of
engineering duties. The album was mixed at The Chapel in Lincolnshire
and mastered at the famous Abbey Road studios. The first single to be
lifted from the album was called "Deeper Down" and preceded the album as
a 4 track release. A promo video was also shot for "Deeper Down" by
Charlie Granberg (who was responsible for the Katatonia videos "My Twin"
and "Deliberation".

The start of 2007 saw bassist Adrian Jackson and session drummer John
Bennett leave the band, and replacements Lena Abé and Dan Mullins were
announced prior to the first concerts of the year. The official
statement from the band stated that "MDB has a new fresh focused feel to
it and we are looking forward to the shows with a vengeance."

In 2008, as the band composed and prepared to record tracks for their
new album, Peaceville Records released An Ode to Woe, a live CD and DVD
showing the band in fine form at the world famous Paradiso venue in
Amsterdam in April 2007.

Recording of the follow-up to A Line of Deathless Kings began in spring
2008 with work continuing through the Summer. In the meantime My Dying
Bride made some extra special festival appearances with the
re-introduction of violins, courtesy of new member Katie Stone - an
unforeseen highlight for all fans who witnessed the shows, which was
then followed by the uniting of the 'Peaceville 3' (MDB, Anathema,
Paradise Lost) for 2 special shows to celebrate the 20th anniversary of
Paradise Lost. These took place in Paris and London and was an
unforgettable occasion for many fans wishing for this line-up for many

By this time, work on the album, titled For Lies I Sire was almost fully
completed, as the band had spent the previous months at work in
Manchester with long-time MDB engineer/producer Mags. The album is set
for release March 2009 and is undoubtedly among the band's very best
work to date. Featuring some seriously heavy-as-hell sombre doom, For
Lies I Sire wades effortlessly and poetically through tales of darkness
and gloom, this time textured with the much-anticipated return of the
often-missed violin, last featured well over ten years ago.

And the story continues...
