When last we heard from My Dying Bride, just last year, they were continuing to build their legacy with the very good “ A Map Of All Our Failures”. That record was all things My Dying Bride; heavy, doomy, progressive, and singularly theirs.
There's always a drip of anticipation when putting on a record from a legendary band, even when you have no personal history with them. My Dying Bride had never entered my radar, so even though I knew of their legacy in establishing doom as we know it, my take on the album is with fresh ears.
*Camp OZZY will be releasing a 30th anniversary remastered edition of "Blizzard of Ozz" and "Diary of a Madman." The two will release on May 31st in multiple editions, and will be available on CD or vinyl.
