Staff review by

My Dying Bride, such a tragic/dramatic name for a band and the music could not be different, in the contrary, drama, mourning, poetry and death harmonize so beautifully together in the pieces of Art that My Dying Bride has offered to the world throughout the years.

One year after the magnificent "The Angel And The Dark River" My Dying Bride returned with another brilliant album, "Like Gods Of The Sun" and, truly, My Dying Bride on this album shine like gods of the sun. For the first time the band offers more and not so lengthy compositions, showing also how much they have matured as composers and players.

Rating: 9 Classic! One of their very best albums!
"For My Fallen Angel" was actually the first MDB song I ever heard, not a metal track of course. But still very intriguing, very sad....It often makes me cry.

Great album! Which is a hell of alot more than what I have to say about the follow up to this CD

Rating: 9 This is their best gothic doom album after The Angel and the Dark River for sure. Excellent album.
