4 stars "Your Broken Shore" is a digital single by UK doom metal act My Dying Bride. The single was released through Nuclear Blast Records in January 2020. Itīs the opening track from My Dying Brideīs 14th full-length studio album "The Ghost of Orion" from March 2020. A promotional music video was also made.

My Dying Bride have been laying low since the release of "Feel the Misery (2015)" (at least for their usually busy standards), but there is a natural explanation for the band downtime, as lead vocalist Aaron Stainthorpe experienced the worst that can happen to a parent, as his young daughter was diagnosed with cancer, and he therefore pulled the plug to spend time with his family. Stainthorpeīs daughter was fortunately cured and he was able to concentrate on his music career again.

"Your Broken Shore" is a classic My Dying Bride track with heavy doom metal riffs, atmospheric sections, guitar harmonies and counterpoint melodies, a soaring melancholic violin melody, and Stainthorpe īs dark and poetic vocals on top (both clean and growling vocals on this track). If something should be mentioned as slightly different from earlier releases, itīs the nature of Stainthorpeīs clean vocals which are often layered and he also sings more regular sustained note clean vocals than the often more subdued almost "speaking" type clean vocals he usually performs.

"Your Broken Shore" is a very well produced track and as a teaser for the release of "The Ghost of Orion" itīs a very effective one, as itīs a high quality track through and through and it shows promise of great things to come. A 4 star (80%) rating is fully deserved.
