British Death/Doom Metal Band My Silent Wake (MSW) have checked in with the following update:
“We are extremely pleased to announce that the new MSW metal album ‘There Was Death’ will not only be released on CD but also double gatefold vinyl! This is to be released Jan/Feb on Minotauro Records. We have only just decided on this with Minotauro so you are getting the news as it happens. We can’t wait for you to hear this album.”.
My Silent Wake celebrated ten years in existence in 2015 and during the last decade they have released a dark host of enthralling albums and EPs, becoming one of the most respected figures in British doom.
Fall 2015, the band recruited keyboard player Simon Bibby, who played in Seventh Angel, the band from whose ashes My Silent Wake were first formed. This is the first time in their history that My Silent Wake have had a dedicated keyboard player in their ranks and Simon’s arrival opens even more doors for the band, particularly in terms of their live performance. With Imperative PR by their side and their line-up complete, My Silent Wake can begin a whole new chapter in the band’s history…and we confidently predict that wonders await..
Although sometimes associated with the ‘Christian Metal’ scene, mostly because of the association of Ian Arkley in Seventh Angel; My Silent Wake are expressedly not a Christian band. Some lyrical themes deal with ideas of faith and loss of faith, but in deeply personal ways, and more universally, rather than obivously …
My Silent Wake latest effort “Invitation to Imperfection” has been released by Opa Loka Records on March 20th.
The band have long been noted for the diversity of their releases, as acclaimed for their ambient and acoustic work as for their majestic, melancholic doom metal and “Invitation To Imperfection” reaches even further into the realms of the darkly experimental and atmospheric. Not just a dark ambient album, not just an acoustic album, Invitation… is all of this and more.
An array of instruments and recording locations were used in the creation of what is one of My Silent Wake’s most enthralling and imaginative releases. Friends and associates from the extended My Silent Wake family added their own personal touches to bring to life what is a truly unique, special album.
