While so many of their contemporaries cranked out disposable albums with forgettable repetitiveness, in an effort to meet the demands of the music industry, MYCHILDREN MYBRIDE entered into a willful creative hibernation instead. Like a creature that spins itself a cocoon to evolve into something bigger and bolder, MYCHILDREN MYBRIDE emerge with their eOne Music debut, Vicious World, stronger and reenergized like never before.
Vicious World is equally energetic, driving, dramatic, and cinematic. Each song takes listeners on a moving journey from start to finish, with special care and attention to structure and meaning. Songs like “God of Nothing” and “The Endless” from their previous self-titled album were but the tip of the artistic iceberg, setting MYCHILDREN MYBRIDE toward the darker and more ambitious path that culminated with album four.
The core duo of founding vocalist Matthew Hasting and longtime guitarist/songwriter Robert Bloomfield, who appear together on every MYCHILDREN MYBRIDE album, now usher in a brand new era of the band forged in ambitious artistry and deliberate focus. They’ve combined elements of extreme metal and the punk-and-pop-infused mash-ups present on the Warped Tour and Mayhem stages with their own signature flavor, a product of their disparate geographical locations, unique background, and point of view.
