MDB Tribute - NEW THREAD!

Discuss anything My Dying Bride-related

Postby MySanityDoesFly » Sun May 31, 2015 9:34 am

Ok, we have been talking about doing this for years, on and off. For various reasons, it hasn't happened, but that is about to change! This time we will make it work. (I am starting a new thread so we can start this discussion anew. The old thread has 70 pages...no one is going to read all that!)

SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW CLOSED. THANK YOU TO ALL BANDS!

The project will be called 'Mires Of Sorrow', and will feature covers of MDB songs, as well as original songs inspired by My Dying Bride.

The band have been aware of this project for some time and have expressed their full support. However, the band are not involved in the production of this tribute...it is being made as a gift to them, from us. The final tracklisting will be decided by myself and Aylin Black.

Let's give something back to the Bride!

As I love to mention every time: I believe the covers should bare a personal print. It doesn't have to be pitch perfect covers... That's not the deal...

Absolutely 100% agreed. Note-for-note covers are generally pretty boring.

Bands, by all means, put your own spin on your chosen song! If you can do this, your contribution will much more likely be on the finished CD ;-)

Greetings everyone! This is Odz, reporting from Armenia. My band "Avarayr" will be covering the song "I Am The Bloody Earth". I initially decided to go with Black Voyage, but changed my mind. Going old-skool! ;) Eagerly waiting to hear other covers from other bands! I enter the studio this week. By the way, If I'm acting strangely, I do apologize. I have never been on a website forum before!

Haha! Thanks, guys! Hopefully I can repay the band that has given me so much over the years! Early good luck to everyone who's going to participate! My advice: Don't over-think! Just do it by your heart. That's how MDB did it! Cheers! :headbang:

Am I day dreaming if we could push this to happen by the end of this year?

No, I think that is doable!

We should set a deadline for submissions (actually Lycaon's idea, but a good one). We may have to change it, depending on how many submissions we get, and how quickly, but it will be good to have a date to aim for.

So how about the end of July? That gives people two months, though it may well be that we have plenty of material by then anyway. Hard to say at this point!

Hi all, I would very much like to be a part of this, as I'm hopelessly devoted to My Dying Bride as well (as I'm sure you've guessed).
I've had a few bands but we never did a MDB cover because I was the only one really into it (though the influence did of course affect our music). However I've written countless lyrics and most of them wouldn't have existed without Aaron paving the way in terms of writing melancholy dark lyrics with (anti)religious overtones, so if at all possible I could contribute with a few pieces of "poetry" that could adorn ... I don't know, the insides of a booklet? Alternatively I could record readings, and/or read them over one of my acoustic compositions (I have a few piano songs that stylistically would be akin to "Sear Me MCMXCIII" which I could use with lyrics).. In the end all I want is to be a part of this tribute :)
I breed in chaotic frenzy!
