but here in Lebanon people share albums and stuff so thats how MDB got popular in my country :D :P

Not extremely popular here in Australia...from what I see anyway...I only know a hand full of people who have heard of them (if that)...I dont know whats wrong with the people down here...I guess its why they wont come to Australia :(

However I am confident enough to say that I would probably be their number one follower

Such music can't be very popular although MDB is one of the main bands in this genre, that's why I know relatively many people who at least listened to them for some time...

Doom in general gets very little attention here in England. It's kind of ironic that the 'big three' of doom metal all come from this country and yet doom is so unpopular. I get the impression that the band are more popular in mainland European countries.

I think I know two other MDB fans personally.

Listening to the reaction of the crowd when they played in Sibiu... I'd say pretty fucking popular!

this is quite unexplainable... doom metal no beeing popular in england... :| anyway, here in romania i must say that there are alot of people who love My Dying Bride very much... including myself :D , it's just that we don't all know about each other that well... but i was glad to see how well My Dying Bride was recieved at the Artmania festival in Sibiu.... (probably the greatest moment in my entire existence...) come to think of it... i simply cannot forget what Aaron said...right before they left the stage... "we will be back very soon , Cheers!!!" wow... that gives me alot of dreaming and hopping going on :D

I think people who listens metal genres in general knows MDB but still it is not mainstream and certainly has its´ own fan base, in Finland too. However, I know there are poeple who can`t stand MDB or prefer their earlier production only. Difficult to say how popular MDB is; I do not know how much records they have sold in Finland, but I`m sure the band is welcommed. :)

Many people heard of MY Dying Bride... not all love it. But as a name they are pretty known. In my town you can find MDB cd's in the music shop and Paradise Lost cassettes in Metro. The real fans are a little more difficult to track down... but they exist. But do not forget that I ma talking only about the "metal community"..

Yeaah, and some real doom protagonists do not even concider MDB as doom but what else is new. I don`t care a less. Getting popular does not, in my opinion, necessarily automaticly mean that the band is getting better or worse. But there are exceptions and examples a lot though :o and everyone has their own opinions and taste.
