In 1990, Aaron, Andy, Calvin and Rick formed MY DYING BRIDE and after only six months, the quartet from West Yorkshire already released its demo Towards The Sinister that is nowadays considered a real classic. And while their first 7" single God Is Alone was still released under the flag of the French label Listenable, the British record company Peaceville Records soon discovered the band’s unique style and offered them a deal.

As they recruited classically trained violin and piano player Martin Powell as a full time member, they were already praised as doom metal pioneers and with their second album Turn Loose The Swans in 1993, they received massive praise, but never rested on their success and so their legendary third album The Angel And The Dark River was released in ’95. With epic long tracks and intensively depressing atmosphere, this release is still considered a classic and saw them invited to play shows with Iron Maiden, while being a part of England’s Golden Three of doom metal together with Paradise Lost and Anathema.

Down two members but feeling right as rain, MY DYING BRIDE moved on, mastered the doldrums, recording magnificent new album, »The Ghost of Orion«, to the joyful tears of fans across the globe, in the process.

No rest for one of Britain’s most melancholic exports in 2020: Just half a year after MY DYING BRIDE returned from their break with their haunting and successful (German Album Charts #12) masterpiece »The Ghost Of Orion«, the sons of Halifax raise the curtains to the »Macabre Cabaret«.

MY DYING BRIDE are a dark monumental pillar that always stayed loyal to their depressive and beautifully miserable sound.
