    How about this? Good idea or not?

    It would be really cool to cover My Dying Bride, I think. They have been a great influence for the band, and I can imagine band members playing instruments in the style of MDB. It also should be noted that with the presence of Mia the beautiful violin sections will be unbeatable.

    In addition, an Extreme Prog-Metal(KD style) interpretation of Edgard Varese, Olivier Messiaen or even a classical composer would be inspiring too!

    i think it would be interesting to see kd messing around w/ isorhythms/nonretrogradable rhythms/birdsong etc. in a messiaenesque way, but i can't really see a mdb cover working though.

    I think Toby hates covers more than anything.

    yea me and toby talked about playing my dying bride songs. ive always joked (slightly) that we should cover possessed, grave, and bolt thrower. actually i could see us doing some nice things playing grave songs.

    How about Kayo Dot's interpretations of MDB songs Toby? Not like "a tribute MDB band that includes some KD members", but the whole band just paying the tribute to the Gods.

    How about Symphonaire Infernus et Spera Empyrium, Your River, The Return Of/To The Beautiful or even Your Shameful Heaven?

    Taaasty!

    well to make a cover song well, i think everyone in the band has to equally invested. I think in our band, Forbes and I are the only ones who ever liked MDB.

    Really? Oh damn, I thought it was, like, the most evident thing ever that KD were a greatly MDB influenced band. My bad then.

    I only hear My Dying Bride in some of the Maudlin of the Well material, and more because of Byron than anyone else.

    I know, how about Heroin Chic? You could replace the 50-something swears with scientific notions.

    What do you Toby and Forbes think about MDB's latter material?

    Oh, a Possessed cover would be sweet. Imagine jazz interludes and oriental violin breaks, and Mia handling the harsh "vox", for she is now the KD main growler.

    Breeeewteele!!

    i've only heard some of the later mdb stuff. some songs i've liked quite a bit and others i havent liked at all.

    besides possessed, grave, and bolt thrower i'd also be into covering amebix.

    it's too bad greg isn't particularly into death metal, because i bet we could get everyone else on board to do an immolation cover.

    I'm totally against this idea. Unless it's a prince cover.
