My Silent Wake




United Kingdom - Active.

Description

Gothic/Doom, Death/Doom

Over the course of a decade, Weston-Super-Mare's My Silent Wake (MSW) have taken many vastly different approaches based around a core of Gothic/Death/Doom, including mediaeval, folk, black, progressive & experimental elements and occasionally moving into completely acoustic or ambient territory. An ever-fluctuating line-up often determines which particular influences will predominate on any given album: the one constant being founder member guitarist/vocalist Ian Arkley (Seventh Angel, Ashen Mortality, Century Sleeper, ex-Paramaecium and The Other Window, amongst others). The band's rich musical blend will appeal to fans of the classic Peaceville sound, and all associated bands.
