Staff review by
My Dying Bride follows its road and it's way to do promotion, which means that you can find a new (or more) EP after or before every new album. This time the title of the new EP of the British doomsters is Bring Me Victory and features three songs (two are covers) and one video shot at Graspop 2008.

The first thing which comes to my mind when I listen to this record is that My Dying Bride wanted to have fun with this EP. They covered one British popular traditional ballad "Scarborough Fair" and a song of the Swans when in general EP give "more" original unreleased songs. The covers are not bad at all, absolutely not in the pure spirit of the Doom Death Metal that MDB uses to play in general but at least that's a bit new if you see what I mean. On the other hand it doesn't give anything special and outstanding too, the songs are cool ok but but not really different of the original versions so will you have to buy the EP just for it and for the video clip of "Bring Me Victory"? I don't think so.
