My Dying Bride Forum

Take from me the crown of sympathy...

Introduce yourself!

Discuss the weather, your parents, your kids, the elections, in short anything that has nothing to do with My Dying Bride or metal, really.

Edit : @ J1 .. may you make this threat sticky, if there's enough resonance? For new members and so on... ?

So this is, I think, a standart threat in Off Topic Forums: Who are you?

Age, Country, Name, Hobbies, favourite Bands and Music.
And - of course, because this is the official my dying bride forum- some specific My dying bride questions, such as favourite Album and Songs and best concert.

So here's my list and I wait for yours!
Feel free to copy it and delete my answers to replace yours-.

Hobbies: Reading, listenting to music, going on concerts and festivals, spending money on CDs :o
Favourite Bands: my dying bride, carcass, Opeth, WASP, Testament, Kreator, Slayer - so it just have to be beautiful or kick ass!
Favourite Music:Just Metal (expect for pure Black Metal) and some of this "classic" Stuff as Grieg, Avo Peer, Schönberg

Name: Fabian
Age: 18 years
Country: Germany, Hessen
Hobbies: my absolute No1 passion: making music (you can listen to it on if you want to :wink: ); of course I love listening to music, too; other hobbies would probably be computer games, Internet and so on... oh, and I like playing football very much! =)
Favourite Bands: I could list so many bands here, but I'll try to provide you a short insight: Samsas Traum, ASP, Janus, WinterDome, Adversus, Iron Maiden, Blind Guardian, Savatage, HIM, Darkthrone, Dream Theater etc... and of course My Dying Bride (guess that's why I'm here :P )
Favourite Music: Well, in the past days I would've said "Metal!", but nowadays I just listen to the music I like and that could be nearly any kind of genre and style... but mostly it's still the more Metal related stuff or Gothic, Rock etc.
Favourite My Dying Bride Album: At the moment I'd say it's A Line of Deathless Kings!
Favourite My Dying Bride Songs: There are so many amazing songs, it can change very fast, but right now I'd pick A Cruel Taste of Winter, L'Amour Detruit, Deeper Down and - I just love the mood - My Wine in Silence
Best My Dying Bride Concert : Well, as I'm pretty new into My Dying Bride I did not see them live yet, but I'd love to of course! :wink:

Greetings, Fabian

Hi folks, name is J1, I'm 31 which is way too old to still be playing with computers (or to have long hair as my mum keeps insisting), I am from the Netherlands and I have been running the MDB website for about 12 years now I think.

Likes: music (MDB, A Perfect Circle, Opeth, Kate Bush, Madness, The Cure to name a few), beer (Leffe Brune and Grimbergen Blonde particularly), books (anything except detectives and horror)

Dislikes: apart from R&B, deliberate stupidity and incivility not much really.

I look forward to seeing this forum be a success!

I am yours truely Kastrophee, I stopped by at the MDB forum when it was still at Shame that it still closed, I wonder if the other bands are going to stick it out or not...

Well, hello everybody, and J1, you need to work out your spamming problem :wink:

Postby Frits » Fri May 11, 2007 2:36 pm

I'll keep it short, because I'm not really an interesting person and my English sucks even harder then a whore on speed!

I'm 20 years old, live in Belgium and I'm in to all kinds of metal accept femal voices.
My hobbies are singing (My friends say I sound a lot like Aaron, witch is off course overreacted but a very pleasant compliment) and playing indoorsoccer as a goalkeeper (Somebody had to be the nut in the net).
I've been following MDB since I first saw them at Graspop 2003 I think (could be 2004). I'm a huge fan, especially of Aaron's clean singing.
I'm studying journalism and hope to be one some day.

That covers it I think. You can always mail me or add me on msn if you want to ask something or just want to have an intellectual conversation :wink:
I Fail to find comfort in your pale cold eyes

Postby Larth » Tue May 15, 2007 12:57 am

I'm Lars, am almost 28 years old, married and I hang around in norway (originally from germany). I try to make a living as an artist, so I paint all day long in my atelier (slowly going nuts but I love this shit). Hobbies are guitar, drums, basketball, internet and all kinds of computer programs like Photoshop. I like all kinds of honest inspired music but mainly I'm into doom/gothic metal.
I live pretty much according to "what you give is what you get" because I think it's pretty true.

I'm open to all kinds of topics but am pretty allergic to discussions about religion because many people around me talk about that stuff all the fucking time.. :evil:
