BRIDE Accepting Funds To Finance New Album

Post by deathisgain on Fri Nov 10, 2017 1:21 pm

I came across this news bit on Angelic Warlord. This one must have slipped by.
As noted by vocalist Dale Thompson (Facebook - October 27, 2017):


“Ever heard of putting your money where your mouth is? Well now is the time. Troy (Thompson - guitars) and I are now accepting funds to finance the new BRIDE CD. He will have a link up soon at www.bridepub.com where you can send your contribution. We are looking for 30 - $100 contributors, but we will accept higher and lower funds as well. If you are ready and anxious to send us finances so we can get this CD up off the ground use our PayPal account: briderocks@gmail.com
“Thank you ahead of time. Let's make this a successful campaign. God Bless”.

Dale offers further detail (Facebook - October 28, 2017):
“I want to thank all of you that have committed to the BRIDE raise funds for one more album. But there are still a few of you who gave the verbal commitment but we have not seen it. Troy and I have done BRIDE for close to 30 years just for you. We are buying new gear and working apart for the very first time this is challenging but very doable. I am so stoked at the songs Troy has given to me to work on. We are truly aiming for this to be the most incredible BRIDE experience for everyone involved.
“As BRIDE reforms for the finale of all finale's we have to rebuild, restructure everything. Buying certain gear, getting our head wrapped around the new songs, feeling out the market and getting to the heart of what we should do and what people need to hear. Thank you for your prayers, financial support and your patience as Troy and I begin writing. I will keep you updated. Don't worry, it will be fantastic!”

BRIDE is even considering signing with a label (Facebook - October 28, 2017):
“BRIDE has been offered a few record contracts this week to return to the arena in which we love. Pray that we are led by the Spirit to the one that we ought to sign with. This is not a game; this is real life; this is life or death for some. We all have our part to play in God's Kingdom and I take nothing for granted. Thank you for your intersession.”

Lyrics have been completed for the new album as well (Facebook - October 2, 2017):
“I have finished all of the lyrics for the new BRIDE CD and Troy has sent me over 20 major riffs. Now we will put this all together and create a monster heavy groove CD with the riffs you want and the brutal vocals you expect. Going to be awesome.”

I absolutely love me some Bride. They're one of my all time favorite bands. That said, considering their last effort, I think I want samples before I commit financially to it.

Either Dale has blocked me or the Facebook page referenced isn't there.  I was gonna message him and see if they were going to do a Kickstarter page.  I'd get on board with that if they were.

We had a disagreement a couple of years ago but had buried the hatchet after he started with The World Will Burn.  Since then, i have not had much interaction with him, so I was actually quite surprised to find that he's blocked me.

Oh, well.  I can be a fan without having to be friends.

I have four opened campaigns. I doubt I will get into another one right now.

And we will never know what to expect from a bride album. It can be anything.
I just hope they release something similar to This is it or Skin for Skin (I mean, early Bride is obviously off the table).
Also, bride albums seems endless. I hope they do 9 or 10 songs, no more than this.

That's sad. Dale has a great voice but that shows a bit of insecurity on his part. Maybe he should reflect hm

Well, at least I saw somewhere that Dale promised they won't be experimenting new styles, they will go for a 90's bride style.

Still, I will wait and see.

A "90's Bride style" could mean almost anything as they were more on the GnR side in the early part and very alternative in the latter parts.  This could be all over the place realistically.  I certainly hope not, though.  They were at their prime with Snakes In The Playground and Scarecrow Messiah.  I know that a lot of you think the first three albums were great, but the songwriting wasn't as good then.  They matured when they went with StarSong and that was when the magic happened.  They got real close to that on This is it and absolutely nailed in on Skin For Skin.  If they go this route, we will be in for a treat.  If they add in the latter 90's sounds, I feel like fans will be disappointed.  Hopefully, we will never see another Oddities which is my least favorite of theirs.

My most favorite album is "Live to die".

 The songwriting on that album was over the top! Not because of the rhythm section or the structure of the songs but because of the diversity, energy, feeling for huge and epic melodies. The Lead guitar work on for example "Metal Might" or "Heroes" is phenomenal. The first three have the metal feeling, the follow up albums are more blues and groove inspired.

It is NEARLY like comparing Wagner, Beethoven or Mozart to B.B.King or Gary Moore.

It depends on the style you prefer. 
But to my ears the early works are unrivaled in the bride discography.

But yes they matured a lot in mixing and production on the later albums.
The sound on Snakes for example is superior.

I agree almost word-for-word with alldat except my opinion of Oddities isn't as low as his.  And yes, I think I still prefer Fist Full of Bees to Oddities.

Snakes II would be great if they can pull it off.  I don't know that he has it vocally though.

The opinions about bride change a lot here.
I like oddities, and simply can't hear scarecrow messiah. It's their worst album, even though I have never heard Drop or Fist full of bees. I imagine that these two couçd be the worse in Bride's entire catalog.


I kind of agree in regards to the lyrics of their three first albums. But the lead guitars and vocal work are far superior to the rest of bride's career.

Despite the rap delivery of a lot of the vocals, Fist Full Of Bees was a strong album.  Musically, it IS Snakes Part 2.  The vocal delivery did hold it back.  It is still worlds better than Oddities.  Pick the worst songs off Drop or The Jesus Experience and they still are better than Oddities.  I used to like that album but my likes have changed.  I never play that one anymore.
