The book features interviews with the band members past and present plus others associated with the scene from the early 1990s to present day, giving a great insight into the nature of the sublime beast that is MDB.
 
Containing 5 discs of rarities, early works, previously unheard pre-production demos, band favourites, and live audio. 
 
Among the essential historical treasures are pre-production tracks from The Angel And The Dark River and Like Gods of the Sun, plus vastly different development versions of tracks eventually featured on (or intended for) the 34.788%...Complete album, exhibiting a darker, and leaner sound.
 
Also featured on the set are a collection of the early works of the band, including the Towards the Sinister demo, plus tracks from My Dying Bride's rare early 7" releases and EPs, and a previously unheard live concert recorded in 1997 during their tour with Cathedral and The Blood Divine.
 
Joining these rarities are a special selection of catalogue tracks chosen by core members Aaron Stainthorpe and Andrew Craighan. The book includes their reflections on why each track holds a particular interest to them, and on the legacy of My Dying Bride.
 
A Harvest of Dread also notably features a foreword by the legendary Tom G Warrior of Triptykon/Celtic Frost/Hellhammer fame.
