The Skinny: UK doom hero, My Dying Bride, has launched a mini-site for its upcoming album, A Map of all our Failures, featuring album info, audio, video, downloads and more. Fans can now stream a brand new song, “Kneel till Doomsday,” on Soundcloud just below, and those who sign up for the My Dying Bride mailing list will receive a free download of the track. A Map of all our Failures is due out on October 16th via Peaceville Records.
A step up from 2009’s, For Lies I Sire – which set and subsequently met new heights of expectation placed upon the legendary Yorkshire doom troupe – A Map of all our Failures is a further voyage into the darkest depths of humanity, religion, folklore, love and death. My Dying Bride’s distinctively sumptuous dual guitar melodies effortlessly flood into juggernaut doom metal riffs, with the vocals of Aaron Stainthorpe weaving a rich tapestry of tragic tales into the accompanying soundscapes. A Map of all our Failures is perhaps best and most effectively summarised by guitarist Andrew Craighan, who describes the album as “a controlled demolition of all your hopes.”
