* PurpleProse: So much. So. ''Much''. Appropriate, considering that Aaron reads lots of Romantic era poetry.

My Dying Bride is a DoomMetal band from England, formed in 1990. Initially playing what was essentially DeathMetal with [[EpicRocking longer-than-average songs]], interspersed with slow, melodic passages featuring keyboard and violin, the band gradually progressed more towards GothicMetal and DoomMetal, dropping the death metal vocals entirely for several albums before returning to a heavier sound around the turn of the century. They are considered a {{Trope Maker|s}} for both GothicMetal and Death/Doom, along with Music/{{Anathema}} and Music/ParadiseLost, the three bands being known together as the "Peaceville Three" after their record label.

Added DiffLines:

* LastNoteNightmare: "The Cry Of Mankind" has a truly bizarre (but very effective) example: a constant repetition of a violin part, over which creepy distorted foghorns and oddly, creepily soothing choir sound play. It goes on for a good three minutes after the song itself finishes.

Added DiffLines:

* DoomMetal: One of the key bands in the genre, and of the [[DeathMetal Death / Doom]] in specific.


Added DiffLines:

* GothicMetal: Either one of the TropeMakers or a TropeCodifier, depending on who you ask.


Added DiffLines:

* NewSoundAlbum: While there are a number of partial, arguable examples in their discography, the most straight example is ''34.788%... Complete'', which comes pretty close to IndustrialMetal territory (a genre not really touched on elsewhere in their work). Other albums stay in [[DeathMetal Death]] / [[DoomMetal Doom]] and GothicMetal territory, mostly differing in exactly how much of each they incorporate.

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Most of the band's rare recordings are readily available on reissues or compilation albums, but the original versions of "God is Alone" and "De Sade Soliloquay" have not appeared anywhere except the ''God is Alone'' vinyl EP, now long out of print.
