|My Dying Bride The Dreadful Hours Limited Gatefold Heavyweight Vinyl 2LP Set
My Dying Bride's epic 2001 album of dark & chilling tales of love and death – presented on heavyweight gatefold vinyl. At the pinnacle of the gothic doom genre for over two decades, My Dying Bride have notably toured with acts such as Iron Maiden & Ronnie James Dio.
At times genuinely dark and unsettling, seventh album 'The Dreadful Hours' was perhaps the band's most bleak release to date, perfectly commencing with the sombre & threatening (& fan favourite) title track. Aaron Stainthorpe's fragile narrative gives way to ferocious growls, setting the tone for the album's dynamic waltz between longing and malevolence, and once more backed up by a relentless wall of masterful doom riffing aided by dramatic keyboard atmospherics.
'The Dreadful Hours' is still rightly hailed as being among the band's finest works to date since its 2001 release. The album was recorded at Academy Studios in West Yorkshire UK, with long-time producer Mags at the helm. The album artwork was also created by frontman Aaron Stainthorpe.
