Product Description

My Dying Bride ~ Like Gods Of The Sun

Amazon.com

Fans of Type O Negative, Mercyful Fate, and even Manowar will probably appreciate Like Gods of the Sun by goth-core metal purveyor My Dying Bride. Refusing to be held back by stylistic restraints, the band have crafted a symphonic opus that rattles with hammering beats, roaring guitars, woebegone vocals, and weeping violins. And while My Dying Bride rarely play anything hummable, their songs are filled with enough compelling riffs and constantly changing rhythms to raise the band above most of their contemporaries. --Jon Wiederhorn

Customer Reviews

One of the best songs I've heard from this band.
Brian Skala
Its an easy album to get into and since this genre is new to me i don't know any similar sounding bands to compare to.

The album is erotic and dark drowned in the beautiful and haunting vocals of Aaron.

.
For me this album epitomizes why I love MDB. Take all that raw energy found in the Metal Music scene and slow it down and add a couple of good musicians and then add one final devastating touch, the wretched vocals of Aaron. The musicians are certainly a step above the typical level of musicians in this style. Aaron is an absolutely master at delivering pure emotional power through his voice. You will live his life, love, death and dark perception of his world.

For those of you who are new to MDB you should know that MDB's style can change widely from album to album. I love the Goth Metal Gloomy Type Albums but still do listen to the other more traditional Death Metal Albums. I enjoy both but feel that without a doubt it is this bands and Aarons ability to slow down their music and cross the divide between the gothic and metal styles that makes this band special.

Another thing I love about this band is that they don't play a concert when they don't want to. They tour far less than other bands simply because they don't want their performance & their enjoyment of it to be anything less than 100%. RESPECT. This album is a must have. I would also recommend the anthology of MDB part I and II *Meisterwerk * This will give you an excellent introduction to MDB but also only half the picture. I must say I rarely play some of there less gothic albums because why would I when I could put on one of their others. You might also try the new one, Songs of Darkness, Words of Light as it is similar to Like Gods of The Sun being more accessible then there other albums if you are coming from a non-metal background. WARNING if you only like Doom metal or Death Metal rather invest in some of MDB's other albums, this one is not for you. All I can say is this album is brilliant...

"Like Gods of The Sun" is one, if not my, favorite cd. The opening song "Like Gods of The Sun" is slow and may not hold interest very well until it kicks in and here comes the double bass drums! "A Kiss To Remember" is a very hauntingly beautiful song, and very deeply emotional. "For You" is another deeply emotional song. "Here In The Throat", is a great song filled with angst and bitterness. The most hauntingly beautiful tracks on this cd is "For My Fallen Angel". All I can and need to say about this song is it is one of the most beautiful orchestrated peices i have ever heard. The guitars on this cd are very much up front and clear. Everything is equalized perfectly and you can hear everything clearly. The Violinist on this cd brings up very sorrowful emotions and it really gets to you. If you like Type O Negative, or anykind of orchestrated dark peices of music, My Dying Bride is an excellent choice.

i just bought "Like Gods of the Sun" and I've heard it only once
(just too little time), but I think I have to write a review.
I've had heard some songs from the album, such as LGOTS,
For you.A kiss to Remember,For my Fallen Angel and i had almost an idea of what it could contain:heavy and melodic guitars, as is the MDB standard, haunting violins and keyboards by the musical genious Martin Powell(such a shame and loss he left) and an overall dark atmosphere. The lyrics not at all depressing, but God-questioning sometimes, depicting the malice of the world, Aarons dissapointment with the current status of our world, erotic and dark.
Let's come to Aarons vocals. I have to recognise Aaron as a great singer, who evolves through the years. He has a nice-positioned voice, deep, not extravagant and not abused. So far for his clean vocals. My only dessappointment is that this album is totally devoid of harsh vocals, something I was expecting for so old a release.
So, I recommend it to any fan of My Dying Bride, but not to anyone who wants to hear the brutal harsh singing of Aaron.
I give this album 5 stars due to its musical ingenuity and quality, and also because MDB are worth it.
