"Live To Die" was Bride's second album and was released in 1988 under Pure Metal. It's a very hard driving Heavy Metal outing. It was much more successful than its predecessor. The members of the band were the same
except for the addition of a new bassist.
Dale Thompson - Vocals
Troy Thompson - Guitars
Steve Osborne - Guitars
Frank Partipillo - Bass
Stephan Rolland - Drums
Bride got to record this album at Grand Slam studio in West Orange, New Jersey. This studio was used to record some of Bon Jovi's early efforts. At the end of the record, after the song "Heroes", there is an awful noise which many have equated to the sound of demons (No one in Bride has ever heard a demon and can not attest to the similarity in sound). This was disturbing to many Bride fans who was not prepared for it; since it did appear after a sizable pause. The noise was simply the producer, John Petri, playing the inside of a piano while howling like Yoko Ono. He made it a point to wake the band up in the morning by making this hideous sound. The band thought the noise was funny, not scary, and wanted it on the album as a reminder of the fun they had in the studio.
