Last thursday, British death/doom metal band My Silent Wake reported the following:
‘Mike Hitchen is back working with MSW as second guitarist, Kate is taking a break once again and we have some exciting releases coming up. The vinyl version of Et Lux featuring original mixes and 2 new tracks is coming very soon. I received the masters from Jeff Mortimer today and they sound better than ever. The album will be a co-release on Fragile Branch / House of Ashes. The mixes of ambient recordings from The Cage by Martin Bowes Attrition are sounding stunning – we just need to find a suitable label to release a full ambient album. The next MSW metal album is scheduled for recording in Sept with Greg Chandler at The Priory Studios near Birmingham UK. The songs are almost finished as far as writing goes. We have four gigs coming up starting with Southampton next friday.’ [may 16th]
A new song can be streamed on the band’s reverbnation page ‘Bleak Endless Winter’ the track is from the forthcoming vinyl ‘And Everlasting Light’.
The band’s latest album “Silent Under Midnight” has been released in June 2013 via Bombworks Records.
My Silent Wake‘s roots lie in the death/doom band Ashen Mortality. Ashen Mortality were formed in the early 90′s in Halesowen, West Midlands [UK] and were active for a further 11 years. When the band split in 2005, three of the members went on to form MSW.The band was formed in the spring of 2005 in Weston-Super-Mare in North Somerset. Initially the band was created by Ashen Mortality co-founder Ian Arkley with other ex Ashen Mortality members.
