My Dying Bride - _Like Gods of the Sun_
(Peaceville, 1996)
by: Pedro Azevedo (10 out of 10)
My Dying Bride are currently my favourite band in the world. I'd rate any of their four full-length albums 10/10. They're just unbelievable. They keep changing every year, but are still always great. Aaron's voice is still 100% clean, as in _The Angel and the Dark River_, so it seems like the grunting is over. After going lighter album after album, MDB inverted that by releasing an album that, while still being a doom album, like they said, rocks. _LGotS_ has much more of a metal feel to it than before. They maintain (or even increase) their brilliant use of violins and keyboards, adding much to the music. Aaron keeps his voice excellent, moody, deeply felt, almost weeping at times. The guitars are now much crunchier, heavier than before, and the drumming is nothing short of excellent. The production is near perfect. The tracks are mostly shorter than before, less epic, but the musical quality's all there. Tracks such as "A Kiss to Remember", "All Swept Away" or "For My Fallen Angel" are just excellent. All of the album's excellent, in fact. There's not one bad moment. My Dying Bride once again show their excellence, proving to be, in my opinion, the best band on the face of the Earth.
