SUMMARY: For those who want the "Cliff Notes" version, here you are: If you take out all of the crunchy riffs (e.g. All Swept Away, She is the Dark, My Body, A Funeral, etc) the drums, and replaced MDB with more classical composition, opera vocals, and some "poetic speak" from Aaron, this is what you have. It's not your "standard" MDB album or collection. Read on for more details.

First off, this is reviewing the first 2 cd's. I don't have the 3rd CD from the limited edition yet.

To all who are big MDB fans, this is an interesting piece of work. I would **strongly hesitate** to say this is "another MDB album." I would honestly define it as a more classical/opera piece. It's hauntingly beautiful, intriguing, and *essential* to view this with an open-mind. It's a wonderful mix of classical instruments, opera vocals, and a lot of "poetic speaking" on the part of Aaron.

If you're expecting to listen to another LGOTS, Light At the End of the World, or even For I Lies Sire, you're going to be shocked. Evinta actually works as much as a soundtrack/classical/opera piece then it does anything else, in my opinion. You don't have those biting, gritty riffs or vocals from such tracks as: All Swept Away, She is the Dark, etc.

Track Reviews:

*Disk 1*
In Your Dark Pavilion - We get the first taste of our vocals from opera song, Lucie Roche. It's exquisite, beautiful, and I was definitely taken aback, because I was expecting those biting, gritty riffs or singing from Aaron. Great piece, one of my favorites on the first disc. Rating: 5/5.

You Are Not The One Who Loves Me - Here we take a bit darker twist with more speaking from Aaron.

5.0 out of 5 stars A New Level July 8, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I've been a fan of MDB since their full-length debut 'As The Flower Withers' came out.
This album is a big departure for them, but not entirely as drastic as it might seem for the casual fan.
Hints of something like this are evident in all their albums when you think about it.

I just got it yesterday, so I won't do a detailed or track-by-track description (there's a review like that already), but I'll say this: This album is a fantastic work of musical art.

They've taken melodies and fragments of some of their songs, and used them as springboards for expansive, evocative compositions that are mostly symphonic/operatic works. Just like a classical composer would take a theme, a motif, and use it to build a composition, so has MDB used melodic bits from their own songs and turned them into evocative works that almost defy all categorization.

It bears repeating: If you're expecting the heavy doom guitar riffing that MDB has been known for, look elsewhere. These works are as doom as it gets, but not doom METAL.

I must also say that Aaron is the only guy I can think of that can get away with spoken word as often as he does it. In less capable hands, that might come across as cheesy or pretentious. Aaron's vocals (whether spoken, sung, or growled) ooze a power, conviction, and passion seldom heard in the entire heavy metal field. The fact that the underlying music is of the highest quality doesn't hurt, either.

If you're open to bands exploring entirely new musical terrain, by all means get this album. I'm personally all for change and evolution, as long as it's not towards dumbing down or commercializing. MDB went in the opposite direction - deeper, more elaborate, intricate and perhaps harder to get into than their previous work.

4.0 out of 5 stars New Soundscapes For Old Melodies August 5, 2011
Format:Audio CD
If you didn't know it already, this is NOT the new My Dying Bride Album!

This is an experiment with an almost completely new sound and feel. There are recognisable elements of the band's sound, and certainly some old melodies that are the basis for these new songs. The result is completely different, though, and you won't feel cheated that they re-used old stuff.

Think of bands like "Autumn Tears" or "Elend" and you are on the right track to figuring out what kind of music this is, or certain instrumentals from Cradle of Filth (Humana Inspired to Nightmare, The Graveyard by Moonlight) though My Dying Bride takes it one step further in removing the music from Metal. This is slower and more peaceful music than any of that. The operatic sound is more prevalent, especially in the arias by the female singer. Aaron Stainthorpe's vocals are familiar in his spoken lines from earlier songs. Long instrumental passages with cello, viola, and an ethereal synth create atmosphere, deep soundspaces, and melancholia, though sometimes the theme is more hopeful.

The result is definitely interesting, and beautiful I think. Doomy and gloomy in a softer version, more pensive, far away from metal.

I think it's great, but you have to be open to new ideas, and I doubt everyone will like it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Some Good Ideas, Some Bad Ideas, Loosely Tied Together February 5, 2012
Format:Audio CD
I'm going to be honest with you; I haven't bought a My Dying Bride album in 8 years, and I never had that many of their albums to begin with. They were one of the first metal bands I discovered, but I guess I just got bored with their sound and started getting into other things. But when I heard about this, it intrigued me. I listened to some of their samples and went for it. I guess I just like radical departures from bands sometimes, even if many others don't. It also has sparked my interest in the band again, and I am certainly going to go back through their catalog and catch up on some of the better albums I've missed.

Yes, this album is perhaps on the opposite side of the metal spectrum. There isn't really a hint of metal here at all, but this album perhaps showcases their darkwave/gothic themes with a neoclassical twist. There is heavy keyboard, piano, and violin use, along with spoken word and some opera vocals. The music is very sparse - perhaps a bit too sparse at times, without kicking up much of an atmosphere. In fact, several parts of it are just downright boring. There are many sections of this album that I really enjoy, especially the gentle, trickling piano melodies heard throughout, but all of them seem to be tied together so loosely and indolently that it doesn't really form anything solid. Maybe it's because all the parts are derived from past songs, jumbled up and regurgitated into new compositions. Maybe totally new material would have been more complete sounding, who knows, but that wouldn't have been very fitting for a special 20th anniversary of the band.

Obviously, this album is extremely long - the triple album is over two hours (even though it could have fit on 2 discs... hmm).
