    My Dying Bride are a British doom/death metal band formed in 1990. In 1989, they were known as "Abiosis", then in 1990theychanged their name and became known as My Dying Bride, following the release of one demo tape "NoxiousEmanation". During theearly 1990s My Dying Bride were part of what was known as the death/doom Great Three withParadise Lost and Anathema - allthree bands hailing from England. Their music is characterised by romantic, sensual lyricsand an obsessive attention to atmosphericdetail.Early demos were death metal in a traditional sense, though much slowerthan most. However, their debut album As TheFlower Withers saw the addition of violins and keyboards. Turn Loose theSwans built on that foundation, utilising clean as well asdeath grunts and, unusually, lead violin on several tracks. Trinity is acompilation of the three early EPs and a 7". The Angel and theDark River saw the abandonment of death grunts altogetherand added a more gothic feel to the songs. Like Gods of the Suncontinued in that direction. The highly experimental34.788%... Complete was widely regarded as an extreme detour from the bandsother works, but was accepted by fans as anew direction for the band, even though it differed from the classic death/doom genre,making them into one of the worldsmost appreciated/idolised doom metal bands. A prime example of this was the track 'Base LevelErotica' - it was musicallyand stylistically unlike any of the band's other works. The Light At The End Of The World represented areturn to the MyDying Bride of old, but was lambasted by some critics as being a complacent exercise of treading water. My DyingBrideentered something of a hiatus after this, releasing two retrospective albums Meisterwerk 1 and Meisterwerk 2. Thesealbumslay halfwaybetween best of albums and rarity compilations and had no clear target audience. Completists of the band,whileappreciating the early demos and rare tracks, bemoaned the many album tracks included, while those new to thebandacquired a peculiar, career-spanning introduction which lacked coherence. It was not until 2001's The Dreadful Hours thatMyDying Bride managed to win round the bulk of their former fans. More innovative than The Light At The End Of The World,yetretaining all the key elements of the My Dying Bride sound, The Dreadful Hours was slightly darker, although a long way offtheintense darkness of the first two demos. 2004's follow-up Songs Of Darkness, Words OfLight showed a band continuing toexpandand refine their sound and purpose. A substantial increase in live performances - once an unheard of rarity - haslead to muchgreater recognition by a new generation of fans.In 2004, the band's label, Peaceville, re-released their entireback-catalogue indigipak format, with rare bonus tracks (demos, remixes, live performances etc.) added to each release.The band's next releasecame in May 2005, when they released the fancifully-titled Anti-Diluvian Chronicles, a fully-fledgedbest of box set featuring threediscs and thirty tracks. My Dying Bride toured the UK in November of 2005, playing shows atLondon Astoria (18) and Bradford Rio(19). The band spent the winter of 2005/2006 writing material for a new studio album,and recorded "A Line Of Deathless Kings". « hide
