YORKSHIRE, UK – UK doom titan My Dying Bride is proud to announce the release of its special 20-year anniversary collection Evinta, out now on Peaceville Records.
The collection commemorates 20 years of doom and gloom from the elite British act, as it embarked upon a special project to re-work familiar melodies and themes from its extensive catalogue into long, flowing symphonic compositions, which includes new vocals and passages from vocalist Aaron Stainthorpe. These arrangements have been brought to life in co-operation with keyboard maestro, Johnny Maudling (of Bal Sagoth fame), as well as a clutch of talented classical musicians, and shared vocals courtesy of professional opera singer Lucie Roche.
“Evinta. A project almost 15 years in the making. An idea that has sat smoldering and never really had a reason to burn alive until now. Nine albums worth of darkness recreated anew to mark 20 years of MDB. Music arranged to the soundscapes of sorrows past. Finally the 20th anniversary allows us to release this music in a form it has been desperately, woefully waiting for. Enjoy the Darkness.” – My Dying Bride

1. In Your Dark Pavilion
2. You Are Not The One Who Loves Me
3. Of Lilies Bent With Tears
4. The Distance, Busy With Shadows

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, as it remains a pinnacle of the genre.
