Descripción del producto
To commemorate their first two decades of existence, My Dying Bride re-worked melodies and themes from their extensive back catalogue into epic, flowing symphonic compositions, incorporating new vocals and passages from Aaron Stainthorpe and French Opera singer Lucie Roche. The arrangements have been created in collaboration with keyboard maestro Johnny Maudling (of Bal Sagoth fame) and a collective of gifted classical musicians.

First off, this is reviewing the first 2 cd's. I don't have the 3rd CD from the limited edition yet.
To all who are big MDB fans, this is an interesting piece of work. I would **strongly hesitate** to say this is "another MDB album." I would honestly define it as a more classical/opera piece. It's hauntingly beautiful, intriguing, and *essential* to view this with an open-mind. It's a wonderful mix of classical instruments, opera vocals, and a lot of "poetic speaking" on the part of Aaron.
If you're expecting to listen to another LGOTS, Light At the End of the World, or even For I Lies Sire, you're going to be shocked. Evinta actually works as much as a soundtrack/classical/opera piece then it does anything else, in my opinion. You don't have those biting, gritty riffs or vocals from such tracks as: All Swept Away, She is the Dark, etc.
In Your Dark Pavilion - We get the first taste of our vocals from opera song, Lucie Roche. It's exquisite, beautiful, and I was definitely taken aback, because I was expecting those biting, gritty riffs or singing from Aaron. Great piece, one of my favorites on the first disc. Rating: 5/5.
You Are Not The One Who Loves Me - Here we take a bit darker twist with more speaking from Aaron. Rating: 4/5
Of Lilies Bent With Tears - More focus on Lucie Roche and her vocals, accompanied by piano and other instruments. Around 3:30 it starts to pick up more, and become more rhythmic, as if in a movie we were approaching an important scene, a pinnacle/peak in the film. Then we have Aaron's vocals around 5:12. Rating: 4/5
The Distance, Busy With Shadows - much more instrument/musically oriented. Almost surreal, and for lack of a better term, almost "new age like." We have a couple phrases from Aaron at the end. I like this piece, but still doesn't quite "hit me" like the other ones. Not bad, but not my favorite either. Rating: 3/5.
Of Sorry Eyes In March - A bit more surreal. More speaking on Aaron's behalf around 1:40. Rating: 3/5
Vanité Triomphante - hauntingly beautiful. Love this track. Great mix of vocals by Lucie, and instrumental accompaniment. Rating: 5/5.
That Dress And Summer Skin - Another darker track. More surreal. Love the use of "She is the Dark" in the background. Rating: 3.5/5
And Then You Go - A beautiful piece. The intro is beautiful. I find section 4:55 with the vocals wonderful. Love the use of "My Body, A Funeral" in the background. Rating: 5/5.
A Hand Of Awful Rewards - The intro is very chant-like, meditative, almost transcendental, for the first 2:00 minutes or so anyways. This track closes out on a much more relaxed, focus, contemplative piece. Rating: 4/5.
Overall, I give Evinta so far a 4/5. Honestly, if I had a few more tracks akin too "Vanité Triomphante" and maybe "And Then You Go" I'd probably bump it to a 4.5/5 or so. However, we'll see how the 3rd disc is in the collector's edition.
Again, not your typical My Dying Bride. It's as much of a collaboration to do something different, hallmarking their 20 year career then it is putting out another album. I praise them for doing so, and there's a reason why they're one of the pioneers of Doom and Gloom. We don't listen to MDB because we're just looking to throw in a metal cd and listen to someone churn out riffs and scream. We can throw in [insert band name here] and get the same result. We listen to MDB because they invoke a certain sentiment, a certain feeling and emotion that blends the tragedy of life and death and makes it into something that's not only dark, but beautiful in its own right. That's what they've captured here, just on a different plain.
