Product Description

To commemorate their first two decades of existence, My Dying Bride re-worked melodies and themes from their extensive back catalogue into epic, flowing symphonic compositions, incorporating new vocals and passages from Aaron Stainthorpe and French Opera singer Lucie Roche.

The arrangements have been created in collaboration with keyboard maestro Johnny Maudling (of Bal Sagoth fame) and a collective of gifted classical musicians.

The resulting album/triple cd set, Evinta, is presented in a deluxe twelve inch 64 page book with spot varnished cover.

MDB's unique brand of mystery and misery has never looked or sounded as good.
------------

"Evinta is a project almost 15 years in the making. An idea that has sat smoldering and never really had a reason to burn alive until now. Nine albums worth of darkness recreated anew to mark 20 years of My Dying Bride. Music arranged to the soundscapes of sorrows past. Finally the 20th anniversary allows us to release this music in a form it has been desperately, woefully waiting for. Enjoy the darkness." - MDB

4.0 out of 5 stars New soundscapes for old melodies 4 Jun 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you didn't know it already, this is NOT the new My Dying Bride Album!

This is an experiment with an almost completely new sound and feel. There are recognisable elements of the band's sound, and certainly some old melodies that are the basis for these new songs. The result is completely different, though, and you won't feel cheated that they re-used old stuff.

Think of bands like "Autumn Tears" or "Elend" and you are on the right track to figuring out what kind of music this is, or certain instrumentals from Cradle of Filth (Humana Inspired to Nightmare, The Graveyard by Moonlight) though My Dying Bride takes it one step further in removing the music from Metal. This is slower and more peaceful music than any of that. The operatic sound is more prevalent, especially in the arias by the female singer. Aaron Stainthorpe's vocals are familiar in his spoken lines from earlier songs. Long instrumental passages with cello, viola, and an ethereal synth create atmosphere, deep soundspaces, and melancholia, though sometimes the theme is more hopeful.

The result is definitely interesting, and beautiful I think. Doomy and gloomy in a softer version, more pensive, far away from metal.

I think it's great, but you have to be open to new ideas, and I doubt everyone will like it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Something old, Something new! 2 Jun 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Well, to begin, this is not, perhaps, what you would expect an entire MDB album to be like, however... Essentially the album consists of various melodies from past MDB albums, but reworked into something positively beautiful, and only subtley recognisable. There are no guitars, no drums, just melody, and some vocals (Aaron Stainthorpe & some opera wifey). If you think back (skipping the last two albums) and remember MDB's more melodic, soulful passages, this is pretty much an album consisting of only that. However, it has a somewhat hopeful feel to it. It is as if they are purifying the heartache and darkness from their songs. The effect, though hard to describe, is genuinely amazing. Powerful. If you are a long time MDB fan, you will almost certainly appreciate this as much as I do. If, though, you are very new to MDB, and only know their newest couple of albums, then I cannot guarantee that you will enjoy this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Collector's Item 17 Jun 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This review pertains to the Deluxe version of the product. As for the music on these discs, see my review on the regular edition. I will just add that the music on the extra disc follows suit. But the total runtime is less than 130 minutes and could have fitted on two discs as well, which is why some buyers of the regular edition may feel cheated.

This version comes with a fine quality 64-page hardback booklet, in which the discs lie. These 64 pages contain the same information and images as the 16 page booklet for the standard edition, but in larger format (almost the size of a vinyl sleeve). The rest of the pages contain more images in the same style, but no more text except the lyrics to the new songs.

So this is purely a collector's item, though if you really liked the music on the standard edition you will also enjoy the extra 40 minutes on the third disc here, which is of equal quality to the first two.

5.0 out of 5 stars Most emotive album yet 27 Jun 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My Dying Bride are famous for their own unique brand of doom laden, soul destroying bleak sounscapes, laced with a healthy dose of virtuoso playing. This album, Evinta is, in my view, the most emotive piece of work they have ever released. Stylewise, there's a distinct nod to the ethereal tones of Dargaard, and underneath there are some familiar melodies.
There's nothing catchy about the music, I've listened to it twice through so far, and I still couldn't repeat a single riff or harmony. It is though, very bleak, very sad and very, very good.
