‘More recording took place recently for the new MSW metal album at The Priory with Greg Chandler [Esoteric]. To complete this album we need to do a few overdubs, keys and vocals and everything is shaping up very well so far. It should be finished by the end of the month and be released around May. Tentatively entitled ‘Silver Under Midnight’ it contains 6 brand new songs. The re-issue remastered digipack of ‘The Anatomy of Melancholy’ is due out very soon and is being manufactured right now. Acoustic songs including the one posted below are to be included on a fully acoustic album which should be finished around the Autumn. We are also doing a split album this year and are to begin writing for this as soon as possible’.
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.
The current line-up is Ian Arkley [guitar, vocals & analogue synth], Kate Hamilton [bass, vocals & keyboard], Mike Hitchen [rhythm guitar], and Tank [drums].
