My Dying Bride has been imposing its legacy for over two decades, since the debut album As the Flower Withers surfaced in 1992. Now, the morose troupe returns with its latest work, The Manuscript, set for release on Peaceville Records on May 13, 2013 on CD and vinyl.
The Manuscript contains four new and exclusive songs, and it’s reportedly 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, UK, with the band’s long-time producer, Mags.
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 its trademark sound.
About the EP, the band has stated,
“Four tales of tragedy, loss, and bitter vengeance greet the listener with an added assault on the emotions too, leaving the soul gray and limp. There is beauty here, but it’s carrying a dark blade.”
2012 saw the release of one of My Dying Bride’s finest and most epic works of late, A Map of All Our Failures, which captured the imaginations of metal fans and doom lovers alike with foreboding journeys through love and death, religion and folklore.
The band is set to embark upon a short South American tour in April.
