3 stars My Dying Bride as they were in the good old days........

This is the follow up to their excellent first EP and the subsequent album. The Thrash of Naked Limbs takes up the thread where the album left it. Dark, Wagnerian doom metal with death grunts and downtuned guitars and some violins. Enough to scare the wits out of most people. This is the doom metal version of the Zeuhl band Shub Niggurath's hell as described on their debut album. The Thrash of Naked Limbs is a heck of a superb epic.

The next song Le Cerf Malade is a sound collage without any value whatsoever. The closing song Gather Me Up Forever is another doom metal song and a very good one.

In short; this now long sold out EP is a good EP. It is a pity the middle track Le Cerf Malade is such a dud. But overall.............;

3 stars
