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-.

Name: Saskia
Age: 16 years
Country: Germany, NRW
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
Favourite My dying bride Album: I cant choose between THE ANGEL AND THE DARK RIVER and TURN LOOSE THE SWANS

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

Hello. RWHN here. (I went by Rev. What's-His-Name?)

I was an occassional poster on the old board. I hope to contribute more to this new forum. So far it looks like I'm an old fogey comparatively which is cool. Oh and I'm from the left side of the Atlantic which also seems to be somewhat rare on this board so far. Anyhoo, look forward to chatting with you all.

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!
