That's where you were wrong.

Anyhow, on message boards, letters, and texts in general, miscommunication is a common problem, it's so hard to judge what people mean when reading what they say instead of just directly talking to them. No Harm Intended, DarkLink.


Actually, your answer to those "plain silly suggestions" was quite aggressive (read yourself). So the harm is indeed done. Miscommunication is a common problem ? Your certainly are very right but then why taking it personally and answering with such scorn ? You could also have problem to understand but could have reacted nicely and with humour. But you prefered confrontation, that is your choice.

If I have chosen to write down such suggestions of covers, it was:

- 1/ To be ironical and imagining how funny it would be to have MDB remixing JLO, for instance.
- 2/ To have everyone thinks about what a cover really means and in what purpose it is generally done.

And that's it.

Regarding Pink Floyds again, it is true that when you listen to them carefully, you'll find especially in the guitar riffs, trace of some heady and athmospherical ambiance. And I agree also with Pigs (three different ones) being one of the nearest song from the Doom genre they created indeed.

"The global and generall athmosphere brought" I mentionned is not necesserily Metal. My Dying Bride has produced over the years many songs that wouldn't be linked to Metal at first (i.e: For My Fallen Angel).

Nevertheless, their is a general bleak, gloomy, dark, sombre athmosphere existing over their work. And in MY OWN HUMBLE opinion, some ideas of covers mentionned in this thread are as ridiculous as JLO.

Who can seriously believe I would like MDB to cover JLO, come on... This discussion is going nowhere...

MODERATOR please ! :D

lol I love the way you take it now after starting this whole shit. For sure, that was definitely not an adult reaction...

Anyway, what about having My Dying Bride covering one of Metallica song ? I remember Hamish said once they played in the same gig some night in Greece.

I'll go for My Friend of Misery on the Black album. What a great song !

I think it to be nice My Dying Bride to do covers of Eleanor Rigby and Yesterday by Beatles as well as House Of The Rising Sun. A cover of Eleanor Rigby would be probably better than Pain's version - more dark, melancholic and full of tragedy, also I think a cover of House Of The Rising Sun would be better than Sentenced version. :) A cover of Yesterday with violin and some heavy guitar riffs may also be great. :)

I was thinking about this thread and came to the following, highly personal conclusion which will never happen for obvious reasons:

I'd love an album where My DyING BRIDE played songs by bands who were obviously influenced by them in the first place, because there are so many great doom/death metal songs that came in the wake of My DyING BRIDE and the only thing lacking really is that, well, those bands great as they may be aren't My DyING BRIDE.
So here's an imaginary album, My Dying Bride Covers Their Would-Be-Usurpers and I would love love lovety love to hear My DyING BRIDE play..for they are beautiful and dark and sad but not quite there without Aaron, Andrew etc.

Katatonia: "12"
(that opening melody is to kill for; and is basically a MDB part MDB never wrote).
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fKdqERiUZzU

Celestial Season: "Above Azure Oceans"
(there's even a violin! and yes, again, this could have been a MDB song. Wish it was.)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ToemhIiObn8

Mourning Beloveth: "The Mountains are Mine"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gQD4UMSb0ww

Lacrimas Profundere: "Solitude, Silence"
(Imagine this with Aaron's soaring clean vocals instead..oh man what should be.. :))
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=31CcpR1o9bs

Anathema: "They (Will Always) Die"
('Nuff said.)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5gwvZHtN0MY

Draconian: "Daylight Misery"
(This opening is *so* MDB. It should belong to them..all these bands doing talky bits and none sound so genuine and satisfying as MDB can do it..)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ADnHKkv9TQM

November's Doom: "Into Night's Requiem Infernal"
(Like the others I believe this one would be absolutely amazing in MDB's clothes)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kYKOnvwhSGU

October Tide: "12 Days of Rain"
(Basically old Katatonia #2, making it MDB #3)

Swallow the Sun: "Through Her Silvery Body"
(Another great song that I wish I could hear MDB play. A man can dream!)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u8S-iIiF1sw

Saturnus: "Litany in Rain"
(Perhaps the least MDB-ish..but holy buttcake, this is one glorious piece of melodic doom; imagine the lead guitar replaced with MDB's violins and those vocals replaced with Aaron's..)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C9NmF3EHMOc

Forest Stream: "Snowfall"
(The atmosphere...just missing the real doom/death band..though this one perhaps comes the closest vocal-wise?)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dB-ek2mUJoc

The 11th Hour: "Rain On Me"
(This song might just be great enough as it is...but still. Imagine MDB playing it.)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zd6pN1L9PR8

Forest of Shadows: "Wish"
(Yeah.)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ebt0g8kxPV0

Paradigma: "Best Regards"
(Probably the most unusual and obscure choice..I knew these people and even played support for them with my own old band.. but for a moment imagine this as MDB, with Aaron replacing the (awesome) female vocals in addition to doing his sinister grunts..)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m6CXAZFZUnY

And as the grand finale, a song that always tugs at my heart strings, and which I am not sure MDB could actually do justice..or maybe they could..it's a simple song really but so incredibly emotionally laden:

Warning: "Faces"
(Yeah..no..maybe not. Or maybe? I dunno..)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sFHL76lIo7k
I breed in chaotic frenzy!
