My Dying Bride announce new album, 'A Mortal Binding'

British Death-Doom Metal legends My Dying Bride have announced the release of their new studio album 'A Mortal Binding'. , which will be released on April 19 via Nuclear Blast Records.

Along with the announcement of the new album, the band has presented the first single from it, 'Thornwyck Hymn' along with an amazing video clip that was directed by Daniel Gray , showing a maritime story of desire and tragedy.

“Forged on the rugged Yorkshire coast, the town of Thornwyck has been haunted for an eternity by the frozen waters that wet its bay – and by the hidden people who live in its saline depths. We must grieve before anyone who enters the sea, or even only approaches its edge, because it could be that they will never be able to touch dry land again.”

'A Mortal Binding', the long-awaited successor to 2020's 'The Ghost of Orion', finds the quintet of Yorkshire delirious in its anxiety, loss and effort to shine. From the raw anguish of 'Her Dominion' and the deranged horror of 'Thornwyck Hymn', to the funereal violins of the epic 'The Apocalyptist' >, at 11 minutes,“A Mortal Binding” isMy Dying Brideat its finest. If anything, “Songs of Darkness, Words of Light” (2004) elevated the band to new heights and “A Map of All Our Failures” ”(2012) expanded on the band’s greatness, “A Mortal Binding” puts My Dying Bride strong> in a new phase of exultant and elegiac misery.

My Dying Bride hired Mark Mynett, studio wizard who produced and mixed “The Ghost of Orion”, for the production, mixing and mastering of 'A Mortal Binding'. The group immersed themselves in the Mynetaur Productions studio (Paradise Lost, Rotting Christ) in Manchester, United Kingdom, where they recorded the album from July to September 2023.
