Special double gatefold vinyl edition of dark soundscapes marking 30 years of the band & including unreleased rendition of 'The Cry Of Mankind'. Presented on limited red/black vinyl with artwork from Aaron Stainthorpe.
Rightly hailed as one of the most instrumental & influential forces in doom metal since their inception in 1990, UK legends My Dying Bride have forged an illustrious career through a flawless discography of immaculately crafted, haunting art.
Now marking the thirtieth year of My Dying Bride with this special vinyl release, 'Evinta' was originally launched 2011, containing re-worked melodies and themes from the band's extensive back catalogue moulded into epic, flowing symphonic compositions, incorporating specially recorded vocals and passages from band singer Aaron Stainthorpe, and also French Opera singer Lucie Roche.
The arrangements were created in collaboration with keyboard maestro Johnny Maudling (of Bal Sagoth fame) and a collective of gifted classical musicians, resulting in a sprawling epic of solemn atmospherics and poignant dirges interpreted & reimagined from the original material.
This edition of 'Evinta (MMXX)' is presented on the vinyl format for the very first time and includes gatefold sleeve with updated cover art & layout courtesy of Aaron Stainthorpe himself. 'Evinta' appears on double limited red/black vinyl, with Aaron selecting his choice cuts from the extended, 3-disc version for this release. Also includes an additional, previously unreleased orchestral version of the classic 'The Cry of Mankind', unused from the original sessions, with vocals courtesy of Aaron, & newly tidied/mixed for this release.
