EVINTA Press Release
New symphonic recordings arranged to the soundscapes of sorrows past from UK Doom legends My Dying Bride. 3 discs plus deluxe twelve inch 64 page book with spot varnished cover. Strictly limited edition to 3,000 copies only.
To commemorate two decades of doom and gloom from My Dying Bride, the band embarked upon a special project to re-work familiar melodies and themes from their extensive catalogue into long, flowing symphonic compositions, incorporating new vocals and passages from Aaron Stainthorpe. Sharing vocals is professional opera singer Lucie Roche, a talented soprano from France.
These arrangements have been brought to life in co-operation with keyboard maestro Johnny Maudling (of Bal Sagoth fame) as well as a clutch of talented classical musicians and will be released as Evinta, as a deluxe 3-disc edition with 64 page book, inspired by My Dying Bride’s illustrious recordings of the past two decades.
“Evinta. A project almost 15 years in the making. An idea that has sat smoldering and never really had a reason to burn alive until now. 9 albums worth of darkness recreated anew to mark 20 years of MDB. Music arranged to the soundscapes of sorrows past. Finally the 20th anniversary allows us to release this music in a form it has been desperately, woefully waiting for. Enjoy the Darkness.”
MY DYING BRIDE
My Dying Bride has been 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, the band’s heavy atmospherics have carved a huge worldwide following over the years and they remain at the pinnacle of the genre.
Evinta is presented as a deluxe twelve inch 64 page book with spot varnished cover, featuring 3 CDs of the entire Evinta musical journey; symphonic works inspired by My Dying Bride’s illustrious recordings of the past two decades.
