British doom legends MY DYING BRIDE are back with a new EP titled The Manuscript and due out via Peaceville on May 13th on CD and LP. Check out the artwork by singer Aaron Stainthorpe below:
The Manuscript contains four new and exclusive songs; 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.
As the band comments: "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 their trademark sound. Four tales of tragedy, loss and bitter vengeance greet the listener with an added assault on the emotions too, leaving the soul grey and limp. There is beauty here, but it's carrying a dark blade."
Stay tuned for more information on The Manuscript. In the meantime, My Dying Bride are set to embark upon a short South American tour next month.
