My Dying Bride’s Aaron Stainthorpe: Top 5 “Miserable” Albums

Revolver has teamed with My Dying Bride for an exclusive white vinyl variant of their new EP, Macabre Cabaret, limited to 300 copies worldwide. Order yours before they’re gone!

My Dying Bride have made a career of mining misery for gold. A fan of the classical poets, OG doomsayer Aaron Stainthorpe fervently digs into the depths of destructive passion and cruel delusion to weave tales of loners who often perish in the end. The band’s latest exploration of the grim and foreboding, Macabre Cabaret, drops November 20th on Nuclear Blast. Funereal dirges, gloomy spoken word and megaton low-end haunt the EP’s four tracks.

By his own admittance, however, Stainthorpe is really “a quite happy person.” So to gain more insight into what inspires his exploration of the darker side of existence, we asked him to share his five favorite “miserable” albums. Check out his picks below.

Brides’ 2020 Wedding Study Reveals New Post-Pandemic Perspectives on Marriage

NEW YORK, Oct. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Today, Brides (www.brides.com) released findings from its 2020 American Wedding Study. What began as a holistic look at what weddings mean to couples in 2020, quickly transformed into a study about how a world-altering event—with ramifications for health, finance, culture, and relationships— impacted those ideals.

Brides surveyed over 1,400 American newlyweds in a range of demographics including age, race, income, geographic location, and sexual orientation. The results shed light on how the pandemic impacts attitudes toward weddings and marriage, and the result is an in-depth exploration of what motivates Americans to get married and have weddings today, and shows how couples have responded to a time of upheaval and uncertainty.

A Socially Distant Wedding in the Bride’s Boho Backyard

When Harneet Sidhu met Sim Brar online in May 2019, they say “they felt as if they’d known each other their whole lives.”

It came as no surprise when Sim, a software engineer, proposed to his Harneet, a school teacher, just seven months later. He enlisted the help of Harneet’s sister when it came time to pop the question, creating a handmade scrapbook that would house the ring. “Already excited about the idea of a scrapbook, I opened it up, and on the very first page was written ‘Our Wedding Day,’ with the engagement ring resting on the page. It was thoughtful, sweet, and the best way I could have imagined,” exclaims Harneet.

With a ring on her finger, the bride knew exactly where she wanted to say “I do” to Sim: her parent’s backyard in Vancouver, British Columbia. “It had been a dream of mine to have a boho-style

“I almost thought at the end, I would not have a dress and would have to cancel the day before my wedding,” said Ferenchick.

Shannon is thankful she got her dress the day before her June wedding, but she knows other brides who shopped at Gerri Bridal Shoppe in Pittston aren’t having the same luck. 

“Dress designers in other countries and other states might have been shut down and have issues, I do understand that. I do feel for them. At the same time you have a responsibility to communicate with your customers and let them know what is going on. Especially right now, we’re under so much stress. To not know what is going on with our dresses is unacceptable,”

10 Wedding Face Masks That Are Perfect For Brides & Guests Alike

Planning a wedding, even before the pandemic, came with a lot of responsibilities. For starters, you had to book a venue, fine-tune the guest list, and, of course, find the perfect wedding dress. Now, on top of those decisions — plus those ensuring the safest wedding day possible — another to-do has been added to every bride’s pre-wedding checklist: buying a wedding-appropriate face mask. The same goes for your wedding party and your guests.

At an event as heavily photographed as a wedding, whether you’re seated on the bride’s side of the aisle or you are the bride, you may want a style that’s a little more photo-worthy than a standard medical mask. But, while the face covering should be aesthetically pleasing and on par with your wedding-day look visually, it should still be effective against the spread of COVID-19. According to the CDC, face masks should have two or
