So how does the new album, For Lies I Sire, compare to the previous My Dying Bride efforts? Is it more of the same or does it incorporate anything new into their songcraft?

On the whole, the album tries to blend their earlier songwriting characteristics with the material that dominated their previous releases, most notably in the vocal department. To claim that it breaks new ground would be an overstatement, but there are certain areas where they have branched off a bit, employing violin and more multi-tracked vocal parts and death vocals this time around. That said, neither the violin nor the deathy growls are used excessively. Rather, Katie Stone's morose violin sections are subtly integrated into the compositins, while Aaron Stainthorpe goes for the growls on just a few of the tracks without overdoing it.

Some of the highlights include the excellent "My Body, A Funeral," where the addictive vocal melody is slowly repeated by the guitar and violin respectively, whilst the drumming beneath the mix is heavy and crushing. Likewise, the militaristic drums are also fiercely prominent on "Fall with Me," which gives a nod to the band's past. The vocals, however, carry on in the style of the previous album, A Line of Deathless Kings, although the singing sounds more inspired and emotional on this one.

Among the album's finest moments are the piano-based dirge, "Echoes from a Hollow Soul," and the title track. The guitar themes that preoccupy these tunes sound like they were readapted from the material on The Dreadful Hours, arguably My Dying Bride's last essential album, in that they are gripping and unbelievably sad sounding. It is moreso a similarity in the way the guitars are arranged rather than a musical similarity.

"For Lies I Sire" is another excellent album in the almost unprecedented line of albums by the best in the genre.

Some people obsess about My Dying Bride's music always comparing new albums to earlier albums, etc. While this is understandable and hard to avoid, I've always thought doing so was senseless. This album does't sound like "A Line of Deathless Kings", but it sounds like My Dying Bride, and that's a good thing; it's the whole point. After all these years, they still sound like My Dying Bride; yet the music still sounds fresh...far fresher than most bands who've been around this long...or even half as long. These songs feel like new and different compositions to me.

Either you get their music or you do not.

Even though the line-up has changed; it's still My Dying Bride mostly because of Aaron, Andrew, and Hamish [incidentally, Hamish has been around long enough he should be considered a TRUE member by now; that is, he's not just a replacement guitarist; he is My Dying Bride].

If you've never heard their music before, you could easily start here; it's a great album. It has a lot to offer.

this band can do no wrong in my eyes..they've been in my top 10 favorite bands list for a long time. I've followed them since 93 when turn loose the swans( masterpiece!) came out. Upon my initial listen, I felt disappointed and underwhelmed with this release.Given that it took them three years to release it, my first impression was that it seemed uninspired and lacking. With repeated listens, I warmed up to it..and realized this happens with everything they release. I initially thought The Angel and The Dark River sucked..now I consider it an epic doom album that has not been surpassed.Each album is unique and artistic in it's own right..and each is beautiful and morose.While it may not be the heaviest or most creative of their discography..it's quality work. This band has matured and aged..and I'm glad they're still around. Not immediately accessible but slowly addictive.

Lately many bands have been attempting to come out as the darkest of the dark in the Metal universe. Few of these groups realize that the fans that listen to this style of music are interested in atmosphere and musicianship not just the 'evilest' sounding group.

My Dying Bride remains faithful to their style and fans bringing yet another solid gloomy Doom Metal album to the table. The tempo ranges from an almost depressing low and reaches a mid-fast pace at select points but for the most part the album sludge's along harmonically.

Andy and Hamish put down some very somber and entrancing axe work and as always push the limit's of their skill's with some above average lead sections that border on the faster-then-usual for My Dying Bride. The bass unlike other bands in the genre continue to take a back seat to the guitars which is a nice change to this style of music, the bass is normally over powering with many newer Doomish bands.

Percussionist Dan Mullins throws down some nice slow fills and even manages to pump out some head bang worthy double bass parts as the album goes on. The only real problem I have with the album is the use of so called 'clean' vocals. Aaron Stainthorpe has an amazing guttural roar matched by few at his best and the fact he held back on the roaring vocals forces me to take a whole star.

Except the vocals (which is simply a personal preference) this album is simply great Doom Metal from beginning to end. The band continues to prove that they are among the elite whom helped birth this style and also continue to prove they are overall a strong group of musicians. So far easily the best Doom Metal album of 09.
