Manic Street Preachers - The Holy Bible


The Holy Bible was the third studio album by the Welsh rock band Manic Street Preachers. It was released on August 30, 1994 by Epic Records, a subsidiary of Sony Records. Their two previous albums had been released by Sony Records on the Columbia Records imprint. It was the band's final album before the disappearance of their lyricist and iconic talisman Richey James Edwards on February 1, 1995.

The album is notable for its use of instruments, or rather, its limited use of instruments. The only instruments used on the album are the electric guitar, bass, drums and percussion. Other instruments such as the piano or strings, are not present anywhere on the album. However, upon listening, the reasons for this soon become apparent: each song is implicitly linked and related to all the other songs on the album; as such, the album sounds like a complete set of songs that support and complement one another.
