My Dying Bride were formed by Aaron, Andy, Calvin and Rick in the summer of 1990, and after only 6 months of writing together released the now legendary demo "Towards The Sinister". Progress continued apace with the release of their first 7" single "God Is Alone" for the small French label Listenable. The single sold out almost immediately causing eager whispers in the underground, bringing them to the attention of Peaceville Records, who offered the band a deal.

The first release from this now infamous pairing was the EP "Symphonaire Infernus Et Spera Empyrium" featuring the bands newest recruit Ade on bass, shortly followed by the band's first full-length album "As The Flower Withers", avant-garde doom metal was born...

"Feel the Misery" is the 12th full studio album from the UK gods and marks the return of original guitarist Calvin Robertshaw to the fold. Te album sees My Dying Bride celebrate its 25th anniversary in style with a landmark opus, sure to sate the thirst of fans both old and new. Spanning 8 tracks, these crushing metallic epics laced with funereal atmosphere are undoubtedly among the band's heaviest and darkest works to date, all while still exploring new realms of creativity. The album sees a notable return to the band's old haunt, Academy Studios in Dewsbury West Yorkshire for recording, where all of My Dying Bride's classic early albums were produced. It was engineered by Dan Mullins, with mixing once more taking place at Futureworks in Manchester UK with the band's long-time studio engineer/producer, Mags. 
My Dying Bride's heavy atmospherics and expertly crafted compositions make them among the most essential and legendary acts of the gothic doom/death genre.
