2 stars "Unreleased Bitterness" is a one-sided 7" flexi disc single release by UK doom/death metal act My Dying Bride. The single was released through the Unbridled Voyage label in 1993. It's a pretty rare item as it was only pressed in 1.150 copies. The track is also included on the "Meisterwerk I (2000)" compilation album.

"Unreleased Bitterness" features a rehearsal version of the track "The Bitterness and the Bereavement" recorded on the 27th of April 1991. "The Bitterness and the Bereavement" was later featured on My Dying Bride's debut full-length studio album "As The Flower Withers (1992)". The rehearsal version on this single is quite raw and features a lo-fi sound quality and therefore "Unreleased Bitterness" is more a fan item that anything, as you can easily live without ever having heard this version of the track unless you're a die hard fan.

Quality wise there is absolutely nothing wrong with the track, although at this stage it's a bit underdeveloped. It's crushingly heavy and drenched in melancholy just as you'd expect from an early My Dying Bride track, but the sound quality is a bit of a show stopper, and overall a 2.5 star (50%) rating isn't all wrong.

UMUR | 2/5 |
