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.”
The album recording and mix was completed at Futureworks Studios in Manchester UK, with long-standing production maestro, Mags, at the helm.
My Dying Bride has been the leading force in the death/doom metal genre since its inception in the early 90’s, and has gone on to forge a legacy of greatness in the field over the past two decades.
The band will embark upon a European tour in December in support of the album, as well as a local appearance at the UK’s esteemed Damnation Festival in November, at which Peaceville will be a proud sponsor to coincide with the label’s 25th anniversary.
