About My Dying Bride

My Dying Bride is a veteran English doom and gothic metal band known for serpentine compositions, dark, brooding atmospherics, and a theatrical stage presence. Though they began as a "slower-than-usual" death metal band with brutal recordings such as 1993's As the Flower Withers, the atmospheric nature of later releases like 1999's The Light at the End of the World were invested with both classical and romantic themes, and found them ushering in gothic metal; they were a prime influence on the second wave of doom metal. 2006's widely acclaimed A Line of Deathless Kings ushered in a new form of acoustic doom rock, while 2002's A Map of All Our Failures brought the roar of electric guitars back to the fore. By 2015's Feel the Misery, full-blooded, 21st century doom metal was the only sound in evidence. In 2020, The Ghost of Orion marked their 30th anniversary as a band.
