My Dying Bride : Like Gods of the Sun

Everything these guys do turns out to be brilliant. On 'Like Gods of the Sun', My Dying Bride have decided to make shorter and more straightforward songs in contrast to their previous releases. The result is, once again, quite stunning.

As on the previous album, there are no grunts, but Aaron changed his vocal style a bit, opting for a more deep, dark type of vocals. I must say I am a bit disappointed with the production, but the music this album offers makes up for that. The album flows very well, and the violin played by Martin Powell fits better than ever.

Note that the digipack and Japanese versions of this album offer a couple of not very interesting remixes, which just maybe reveal a side of MDB. that we haven't heard yet. My Dying Bride, once again different, once again superb.
