The new My Dying Bride minisite page for ‘The Barghest O’ Whitby’ is now online at: http://www.peaceville.com/mydyingbride/thebarghestowhitby/.
The site contains release information, audio samples, plus a special video teaser trailer (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9c7NrYLpZNk) and more. ‘The Barghest O’ Whitby’ will be released November 7th on Peaceville Records on CD and limited red vinyl.
This single track, 27-minute epic represents the epitome of poetic grace and funeral soundscapes from one of gothic doom’s most celebrated acts. With a masterful blend of pounding guitar riffs and sombre atmospheric passages, My Dying Bride embarks on a chilling journey through superstition and folklore.
‘The Barghest O’ Whitby’ was recorded at Futureworks Studios, Manchester with long-time production partner and engineer, Mags. The release is the first to feature violin/keyboardist Shaun Macgowan, and sees the return of Shaun “Winter“ Taylor Steels to the drum-stool for this recording.
The cover artwork for ‘The Barghest O’ Whitby’ also appears courtesy of vocalist Aaron Stainthorpe.
