My Dying Bride Feel The Misery on 180g 2LP
With crushing epic doom spanning eight tracks, and featuring the return of original guitarist Calvin Robertshaw to the fold, My Dying Bride’s latest opus and twelfth full-length studio album, Feel the Misery, is undoubtedly amongst the band’s heaviest, darkest and most majestic works to date, marking the group's 25th anniversary in punishing style. The band also returned to their old haunt, Academy Studios in Dewsbury West Yorkshire for the recording, where all of My Dying Bride’s classic early albums were produced. Mixing once more took place at Futureworks in Manchester UK with the band’s long-time studio engineer/producer, Mags.
The band comments on the themes of Feel the Misery: “Contained within are all the grandeur and mastery of the melancholic one would expect to find on a recording from this group of musicians. The crushing of hearts and the solemn farewells to friends and lovers twinned with the destruction of flesh and the passions of cruelty are laid neatly for the listener to devour and savour. Eight new compositions detailing the path of life through dark doors and the burdens we all must endure simply to make it to the end, My Dying Bride have returned with a foreboding new album which may enlighten, delight and consume the soul in one epic sitting.”
My Dying Bride has been the leading light of doom metal since their debut album As The Flower Withers was first released on Peaceville Records back in 1992, and the band's heavy atmospherics and expertly crafted compositions make them among the most essential and legendary acts of the gothic doom/death genre. 180-gram heavyweight gatefold double vinyl with four page booklet.
