    hmm..well, I like some of their stuff, but i think they can be quite boring sometimes. I find they have some great parts in a lot of there songs but then it just gets boring and carries on for 10 minutes! just my opinion

    I LOVE everything that was released prior to "Turn Loose the Swans"... The rest I generally find boring

    34.788% Complete is a fantastic album and I might get flamed now.

    I have one My dying bride album. Its called The Dreadful Hours and I really like listening to it when I’m going to sleep. I don't find it that depressing but there is that similarity between the two bands.

    Yes!!!, for me both Katatonia and MDB come from the great age of doom metal in 90's...

    yes, i love them!
    somehow i've neglected their work after "the light at the end of the world" (worth buying alone for "she is the dark" :worship: in my opinion ) but i do own all the albums prior to it and like them all /with the possible exception of some songs/.
    and i agree with cerulean about the "34.788%... complete" being a great piece of work - criminally, criminally underrated ! ! !

    I agree with everyone around, they really have some great tunes but they can also be a bit boring at times.
    I didn't check their latest release though, I heard it wasn't that good.

    Especially, "Sear me" from ATFW and the title track from the Symphonaire EP are timeless!

    I cant say that I have ever given them too much of a chance.....I have never been impressed with them.....but that doesnt mean much......since I never have really given them more than a 10 minute listen at a time.......so I guess you could say that NO I am not a fan.....

    i used to listen to MDB on my beginning to doom, since then, i guess i've evolved... they are not that appealing no more.

    I definitely like My Dying Bride. My favorites are probably Turn Loose the Swans and The Light at the End of the World, though I like all of their albums (including the three early EP's and 34.788%...Complete)...although I've not heard much of As the Flower Withers and I haven't picked up their latest album just yet. I believe they were the first doom band I heard.

    I used to like them a lot, but only some work of theirs stands out..

    thing is that bride has been dying for a long time, and i think she may be dead now
