My Dying Bride has been the leading force in the Death/Doom Metal genre since their inception in the early 1990's. Now the Yorkshire titans return with their 2013 release The Manuscript. The EP contains four new and exclusive songs; a dark voyage spanning over 27 minutes of supreme doom. The atmospherics have been stripped back slightly to focus on a more sparse yet hard-hitting metallic opus, yet also still including additional passages of violin and acoustic guitar as the tales unfold, all narrated with Aaron Stainthorpe's ferocious vocal delivery, plus more soothing mournful tones. The Manuscript was recorded and mixed at Futureworks Studios in Manchester, UK with long time producer, Mags.
