My Dying Bride are an English doom metal band formed in Bradford, West Yorkshire. Forming in 1990, they are known for their slow yet extremely heavy riffs and remarkably morose poetic lyrics. Along with former Peaceville labelmates Anathema and Paradise Lost, My Dying Bride is one of the pioneering acts of the death doom metal movement in the early 1990s, labeled as one of the “Peaceville Three”. However unlike their peers, My Dying Bride would remain on Peaceville from their signing in 1992 to their departure in 2017, making them one of the longest tenured bands on the label.
This band makes some of the best gothic metal ever recorded, and its completely saturated with raw horrific emotion.
Like Gods of the Sun is the fourth album by My Dying Bride released in 1996, and the last album by the band to feature Rick Miah, who left the band in 1997, on drums and Martin Powell on keyboards and violins.
