my dying bride The Barghest o' Whitby (12", £17.25)label: peaceville
The epic Doom masterpiece reissued on vinyl and presented in single packaging. My Dying Bride has been the leading light of doom metal since the debut album “As The Flower Withers” was released on Peaceville Records back in 1992. Influenced by acts such as Celtic Frost and Candlemass, the band’s heavy atmospherics have carved a huge worldwide following over the years and they remain at the pinnacle of the genre and one of the most instantly distinguishable metal bands. This single track, 27-minute epic represents the epitome of poetic grace and funeral soundscapes from one of gothic doom’s most celebrated acts. With a masterful blend of pounding guitar riffs, and sombre atmospheric passages, My Dying Bride takes you through the chilling tale of a supernatural entity hell bent on revenge. ‘The Barghest O’ Whitby’ was recorded at Futureworks Studios, Manchester with long-time production partner & engineer, Mags. The release was the first to feature violin/keyboardist Shaun Macgowan and saw the return of Shaun “Winter” Taylor-Steels to the drum-stool. The sleeve cover features the original artwork by vocalist Aaron Stainthorpe.
