Vocalist Aaron Stainthorpe of U.K doom metal legends MY DYING BRIDE was interviewed on this past Monday’s (June 27) edition of “Heady Metal With Jeff Olson”, the Internet radio show hosted by original TROUBLE drummer and RETRO GRAVE mainman Jeff “Oly” Olson. You can now listen to the chat in two parts below here.
2010 marked the 20th anniversary of MY DYING BRIDE. To commemorate two decades of doom and gloom from the elite British act, the band embarked upon a special project to re-work familiar melodies and themes from its extensive catalogue into long, flowing symphonic compositions, incorporating new vocals and passages from vocalist, Aaron Stainthorpe. These arrangements have been brought to life in co-operation with keyboard maestro Johnny Maudling (of BAL-SAGOTH fame), as well as a clutch of talented classical musicians, and shared vocals courtesy of professional opera singer Lucie Roche. The collection — titled “Evinta” — was released on May 31 via Peaceville Records as a two-disc set and deluxe three-disc edition with 64-page book inspired by MY DYING BRIDE‘s illustrious recordings of the past two decades.
“Heady Metal With Jeff Olson” airs on Monday evenings from 7 to 9 p.m. EST exclusively for Metal Messiah Radio with the podcasts available the following day at the show’s web site, HeadyMetalWithJeffOlson.com.
“Heady Metal With Jeff Olson” is Olson‘s first radio show endeavor and features interviews with musicians from different metal genres across the board, interesting people from all walks of life, comedic segments, music news, and giveaways.
Olson has been writing and recording in the music industry since the formation of TROUBLE (1979) and holds a Bachelor of Music degree in film scoring, cum laude, from Berklee College Of Music.
