About this album

Like Gods of the Sun is an album by My Dying Bride released in 1996. This is the last album to feature Rick Miah on drums and Martin Powell on keyboards and violins.
Like its predecessor The Angel and the Dark River this album has completely clean vocals. A video was filmed for “For You” and appears on the VHS and DVD of For Darkest Eyes. Singer Aaron Stainthorpe has stated many times that this is his favorite MDB album. The track “A Kiss To Remember” has become a regular in the band’s live setlist.

The song “For My Fallen Angel” has an extract from a poem called Venus and Adonis by the English poet and playwright William Shakespeare.
The Japanese and limited digipak editions of the album feature the bonus remix “It Will Come (Nightmare Mix)”. This track was included on the 2003 reissue of the album alongside an additional remix of the song “Grace Unhearing”, credited as “Portishell Mix”. The song was thus named as Stainthorpe was at the time a big fan of the British band Portishead. The band would later perform a cover of the Portishead song “Roads” for the Peaceville Records anniversary compilation “Peaceville X”. The cover artwork was designed by Andy Green.

    This is my favorite My dying Bride line: "My only prayer was to a God who I don't believe".

    I think it's their most accesible and mainstream album, but it's still great. Although it won't find place in my Top 5 of their discography. Top 3: "A Kiss to Remember", "The Dark Caress", "All Swept Away".

    Is it just me or is the last two songs (the remixes) named the wrong way around?
