The Holy Bible is the third studio album by Welsh alternative rock band Manic Street Preachers. It was released on 30 August 1994 by record label Epic. At the time the album was written and recorded, lyricist and rhythm guitarist Richey Edwards was struggling with severe depression, alcohol abuse, self-harm and anorexia nervosa, and its contents are considered by many sources to reflect his mental state. The songs focus on themes relating to politics and human suffering.

The third studio album from Manic Street Preachers is often heralded as being one of the most miserable and emotionally intense albums ever released. In 1995, Richey Edwards disappeared, making The Holy Bible the last album he contributed to, although his lyrics were used on later albums Everything Must Go and Journal for Plague Lovers. The Holy Bible Q&A.
The Manic Street Preachers, as we speak, are on the verge of releasing their new album, Lifeblood. It will be their first album since releasing Forever Delayed (a greatest hits) and Lipstick Traces (a B-side/rarity compilation). They stand now, on the back of tracks like A Design For Life, If You Tolerate This Your Children Will Be Next, and The Everlasting, as Wales' biggest band. Not surprising, really, given that as an album, The Holy Bible sticks out like a sore thumb too - not just in the catalogue of the Manics, but in music in a general. It's so bleak it makes In Utero, Korn's self-titled debut, and Angel Dust look like Westlife albums. It documents insanity and exposes it in a way not even Syd Barrett's albums do (though the comparison is somewhat unfair). It truly feels like the most 'punk' album ever, so comprehensively does it shock the listener and stand on its own in the annals of music.
