More Info:

My Dying Bride has been the leading light of doom metal since their debut album "As The Flower Withers" was released on Peaceville Records back in 1992. Influenced by acts such as Celtic Frost & Candlemass, the band's heavy atmospherics have carved a huge worldwide following over the years & they remain at the pinnacle of the genre & one of the most instantly distinguishable metal bands. Originally released on Peaceville in October 1993 & recorded at Academy Studios in Yorkshire, 'Turn Loose The Swans' saw the arrival of long-time session musician & classically trained violin & piano player Martin Powell. The album also saw the band stretching & pushing the grandiose textures & epic doom dynamics to create an opus of previously unrivalled atmosphere & stark emotion. Fans & critics have since hailed 'Turn Loose The Swans' as the blueprint for the new Gothic Metal genre, with many often still citing the release as among the defining albums of the band's distinguished career.
