Peaceville Records / Edel
My Dying Bride has become the leading light of doom metal since their debut album ‘As the Flower Withers’ was released on Peaceville Records back in 1992. Influenced by acts such as Celtic Frost and Candlemass, and with their heavy atmospherics, the band carved a huge worldwide following over the years and remains greatly respected today as one of the pinnacles of the genre, as well as one of the most instantly distinguishable metal bands.
‘BRING ME VICTORY’ is the new EP; featuring the first track to be lifted from the colossal 'For Lies I Sire' album. The EP also includes special cover versions of the traditional English medieval ballad 'Scarborough Fair' plus the Swans classic, 'Failure' - both executed in the unmistakable MDB way; with more than a touch of foreboding.
The release is brought to a close with a storming bonus live rendition of the band’s own 'Vast Choirs' song (originally from the ‘As the Flower Withers’ album); recorded at Graspop Festival in Belgium, 2008.
This release also contains the new video for the title track, directed by Charlie Granberg, who last worked with My Dying Bride on the video for the band’s 2006 single, ‘Deeper Down’.
