There's some superb riffing in Le Figlie Della Tempesta.

Yeah. This one is something so special and the most memorable. It`s very easy to get hooked to the whole stuff of MDB by this one and only Sear Me III riff....Seems like a musical signature of My Dying Bride. :)

This one, I like it. But there are so many ^^

Yes...There are so many. In my opinion, almost every song of MDB has it`s own memorable signature riff. I tried to listen all the albums with an aim to pick my favorites, but all thing ended with confusion. I can `t pick a few. Actually, almost all of them are my favorites, but Sear Me III is very special.

I find 'The Deepest of All Hearts', an undeservedly underrated song, absolutely devastating in all respects, especially the section that comes in support of the stanza that reads Your eyes. Your smile | No more laughter again | We were something | No more. Nothing to me. The part extending from 6:35 to 6:48 is what I usually refer to as "the summit of spiritual depletion" — so bleak and shiver-inducing.

Underrated because if you listen to it too much, it becomes quickly boring. Very good and unique songs never do that. Never.

Oh my, there are so many.
The aggresive riff in "the Songless Bird" is exceptional. The one that follows mellow portion of the song. And "the Dreadful Hours" is a chain of slaying riffs.

Hmmm... There are many ways to qualify the song I mentioned, but boring it certainly is not, nor is, say, 'Christ Liar', 'The Isis Script', 'A Cruel Taste of Winter', 'The Scarlet Garden' and the like, none of which have been mentioned in this thread.

Exactly. The entire section backing the verses ‘No more lies utter from you. | From mine eyes I must take you. | No longer wise. Nothing is new. | Tears for my trembling faith. | You shall not die unsung’ to me is one of the blackest moments in My Dying Bride, along with the better known parts of ‘The Raven and the Rose’ with its genuine predilection for Black Metal.

I do like the, erm, mellower side to My Dying Bride, but, admittedly, I like it sinister better. 'Tis no wonder the latter part of ‘Christ Liar’, i.e. ‘Beware! I will seek you. Find you. | Vengeance is mine. Wherever you hide | You know I will find’ straight to the (bitter) end is the one I cannot but admire to no end. Sadly underestimated, even amongst connoisseurs.

Many songs are underestimated if you want to know. One of them was Here In The Throat. And since the guys start to play it, it becomes suddenly a very good one. Underestimated just means we do not talk much about them. Yet, I agree with you about The Raven And The Rose.

If you read many of the threads here, you should know my frustration about songs like The Night He Died, It Will Come. Weirdly, they both contain wonderful riffs. Can you grasp them ?
