British death/doom metal band My Silent Wake has posted another new song on their Reverbnation page, but the song can also be streamed below. The song is titled “Oblivion” and comes from their forthcoming album “Silver Under Midnight” which will be released this month via Bombworks Records.
In an update last April 22: “The new album of brand new MSW metal songs is now almost completely mixed and is sounding better than anything else we have put out so far. Expect to see “Silver Under Midnight” next month along with the acoustic album “Preservation, restoration, reconstruction”. Both out on Bombworks Records. Apart from two limited edition compilations and the re-release of “Anatomy”, these two albums are our first full releases of new material for three years.”
The band line-up has changed again and the current membership is Ian Arkley, Mark Henry [Also of March of Time], Adam Westlake [Also of Striga] and Rich Alden [also of Penthos]. This line-up will be playing at future gigs. The previous members are all very much in contact with the band, and may return at some point. Many have been involved in recent recordings.
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 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 Jasen Whyte and Andi Lee. Alan Southorn and Kate Hamilton also joined within the first few months. My Silent Wake have many other elements to their music; as well as death/doom they have influences from folk, medieval music and progressive/psychedelic rock. The band released 5 albums including a split with The Drowning.
