My Dying Bride Forum

Take from me the crown of sympathy...

The silence, the waiting, then the pain

Discuss anything My Dying Bride-related

Apologies for stealing a line from Aaron’s lyrics for the topic title, but it really captures the spirit I think because a) It is awfully silent around here and I miss talking with you guys (not that there’s any news regarding the band to discuss, of course), b) we’re all waiting for the Bride to re-arise (with patience! No worries) and c) Well life is full of pain innit.

I have not much to add myself, other than that I hope everything is going as well as possible for Aaron and the rest of the band. I was at the Norwegian Inferno Festival (I love that festival - though nothing can beat the 2015 edition when MDB played obviously) and found a shirt I didn’t have in my collection yet, so that was nice (the Feel the Misery one with the dancing skeletons) but also an item I didn’t know existed until I saw it so I am afeared it is a fake / unlicensed product: A «Feel the Misery» card holder thingy. It looks kind of cheap with the album art just stickered onto the box, but maybe someone here knows something about this item? The merchant was quick to sell it to me for half the price, too, so there’s that ^^ Oh well, it’s a nicety anyway.

In other news I am still listening (almost) daily to «Feel the Misery» and my thoughts and opinions on it continue to change, which is weird. Getting a tad sick of some of the tunes, though, maybe :D Without meaning any disrespect to the band and its woes, but is has been a good while since we’ve gone this long without new material after a blisteringly productive period. I am looking forward to the next record, and hope that we will have some positive news soon, but in the meantime I was wondering how everyone else is holding up and maybe you have some MDB-related stories to share :-)

I'm really looking forward to a new MDB Album/EP with Calvin fully involved!
Is it still planned to release "A Harvest Of Dread"?

Also am looking forward to some kind of update, patiently...... PLEEEEEEEEASE GIMME UPDATE!!!!..... but yeah I'm cool about it.

Listening to 'A Map' and I love the feel of this record. I feel ashamed I haven't got the final version of Fell The Misery yet, I'm still listening to the mispress!

I cant wait for the new MDB album.... I started listening to MDB when Feel the Misery came out so i never felt the hype of waiting for a new MDB album/EP...

I already listened to the whole MDB discography way too many times and i cant wait to hear something new.....

MDB is one of the bands that only gets better after all the years... 28 years and they still make albums that sound just as ambitious as the first ones... and better.....

Keep making incredible art... :beerchug:

Hi guys!,

for so long there was a lack of movement that I even forgot the password.

A)

Lychfowel in our doomy life this is the exact period of time when the forum slowly wakes up from lethargy. The exact cycle of three years.
I hope our intuition will not disappoint us and we will have much to discuss this and next year :roll:
B)

I am curious whether nuclear blast has a strong pressure on MDB.
When Paradise lost changed the label, after one year they released a new album.
It seems to me that just one year has passed since the contract was signed. so maybe something is coming up by the end this year. HOPE SO!

Life is hard. at the least appropriate moment shows us the middle finger. I know, however, that Aaron is a tough guy and he will drown his sorrows in lyrics.

I keep my fingers crossed for him and his family.

But i can not wait for new album! it will be three years soon. I need new MDB sounds to live.
Feed my thirsty soul even with a small EP!


BTW there are days when even FLIS sounds like new material :D

As I once (when "The light at the end of the world" was released - yes, I KNOW that I am old) also started to listen to their whole lifetime achievement and recognized even back then it was material enough to fill many of my years with music it now (= 12 releases more) must be able to fill much more time - like nearly 20 releases within 3 years, it must be great! These lucky times are gone as now I do know the lifetime achievement and also am desperately waiting for new material.

This waiting fortunately seems to wake this forum again! Well, it´s spring, flowers are growing, forums awake, albums get released soon (?)...

But...nevertheless take yourself as much time as you do need.

Nice to read some fresh posts! Thanks for chiming in :)
Yes we have to be patient of course.

As for old.. I distinctly remember reading the review of the Symphonaire EP when it was released and then As the Flower Withers. But I didn't hear them until Turn Loose the Swans came out :) It was so...different...and MDB still are and boy do I love them for being just that.

Still listening to the bad press as well :D

For me all started when I saw the Symphonaire video on MTV in 1991... :violin:
