5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic Gothic Metal Album 20 May 2005
Format:Audio CD
For me this album epitomizes why I love MDB. Take all that raw energy found in the Metal Music scene and slow it down and add a couple of good musicians and then add one final devastating touch, the wretched vocals of Aaron. The musicians are certainly a step above the typical level of musicians in this style. Aaron is an absolutely master at delivering pure emotional power through his voice. You will live his life, love, death and dark perception of his world.
For those of you who are new to MDB you should know that MDB's style can change widely from album to album. I love the Goth Metal Gloomy Type Albums but still do listen to the other more traditional Death Metal Albums. I enjoy both but feel that without a doubt it is this bands and Aarons ability to slow down their music and cross the divide between the gothic and metal styles that makes this band special.
Another thing I love about this band is that they don't play a concert when they don't want to. They tour far less than other bands simply because they don't want their performance & their enjoyment of it to be anything less than 100%. RESPECT. This album is a must have. I would also recommend the anthology of MDB part I and II *Meisterwerk * This will give you an excellent introduction to MDB but also only half the picture. I must say I rarely play some of there less gothic albums because why would I when I could put on one of their others. You might also try the new one, Songs of Darkness, Words of Light as it is similar to Like Gods of The Sun being more accessible then there other albums if you are coming from a non-metal background. WARNING if you only like Doom metal or Death Metal rather invest in some of MDB's other albums, this one is not for you. All I can say is this album is brilliant...

5.0 out of 5 stars For all the fallen Angels 19 Mar 2005
Format:Audio CD
I came across this band quite by chance during a recent HMV metal sale. Close to 50 and still an old metalhead I thought I would give this doom stuff a hearing especially after doing my homework on Amazon and finding that there is none of that daft "devilish" grunting on this album.
WOW it just blew me away,staggering riffs,haunting violin and keyboards and sad doomish vocals along with top class drum and bass playing I was hooked after the first listen. I then did my usual trick of playing an album to death for a couple of days then leaving it for a week before playing it again. Did it pass my longevity test? TOO BLOODY RIGHT IT DID!!. There was a sticker on the album with a 3 word comment from a review by Metal Hammer magazine "Moving and Majestic" it said and that sums up this album perfectly.No album fillers and an opening title track that easily enters my top 10 metal tracks of all time.
What would have been the final track on the album (the remastered version has 2 bonus tracks) is the stunning "For my Fallen Angel", that haunting violin, majestic waves of synth and a spoken vocal always brings a lump to my throat. Sod Angels by Robbie Williams or Stairway to Heaven this is the track I want played when I check out.
I ended up purchasing the whole Dying Bride catalogue and would recommend "Turn Loose The Swans and "The Angel and the Dark River" to any metal fan, both are true classics.The early Dying Bride recordings and more the recent stuff are also excellent but the grunting does get on your boobies sometimes (sorry doom fans), I,m not sure why they went back to it after releasing 3 classics but I won,t hold it against them.
Black Sabbath would have been proud to make an album like this and as a Sabbs fan from when I got their 1st album on the day of its release that is the biggest compliment I can make to My Dying Bride.

4.0 out of 5 stars MDB's most accessible and probably their best 24 Oct 2011
By Koala
Format:Audio CD
This is a dark album, but unlike some of their earlier work, it has more conventional song structures and shorter songs which makes it a more commercial work. There's also no growling which means this album will be less scary to those of a nervous disposition. Still, it's dark. It will lower you down into a deep, dark hole, so make sure your rope is securely tied first! It's not just dark though, it's also very melodic and has a lot of dramatic flair. You can imagine the closing song, For My Fallen Angel, being used in a film soundtrack, and a lot of the other songs are also very evocative. Sex and death are prominent themes, as you'd probably expect, and there's a whole lot of existential angst thrown in there as well. Not an album for a party, unless you're throwing a party for particularly miserable goths, but an album with plenty to reward a serious listener who's not afraid to explore the darker side of life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cracking album! 18 Oct 2001
Format:Audio CD
What an excellent CD. Its almost prog rock! The title track really sets the scene for the entire album- very doomy. My favourite song on it is Grace Unhearing- it just captures the listener and drags them down to new depths. Very depressing goth metal!! and its a bit of a bargain too!
