Moonspell / Kreator / Novembre - Live at the Lisbon Coliseum, Portugal, Feb 27th 2000

For the promotion of their latest work -"Butterfly Effect", Moonspell began their European tour in January and ended in their homeland country. This time three show's took place in Portugal (two in the north, Oporto, in which they played with Witchery and the other concert was in Lisboa on the 27th of February. As far as I'm concerned, this was the most professional Moonspell concert I've ever seen with spectacular light management and very good performance by the musicians. Moonspell's Pedro Paixão (keyboards) gave a hand to his guitar partners while the keyboards were programmed. Of course, there is always a theatrical performance by the vocalist Fernando Ribeiro.

"Soulsick", "Butterfly Effect", "I am the Eternal Spectator", "Angelizer", "Can't be", "Solitary Vice", "Lustmord" and "Tired" were some of the chosen songs in a set list that didn't give much importance to "Sin/Pecado" album. From Sin/Pecado  they only played "Sin/Pecado" and "EuroticA". Meanwhile there was also time for older things like "Wolfheart", "Irreligious", "Wolfshade (a werewolf masquerade)", "Ruin and Misery", "Mephisto", and the encore "…Of Dream and Drama (Midnight Ride)", the hymn for all Portuguese -  "Alma Mater", the classic "vampiria" and also "Full Moon Madness".

For support on this tour we had Kreator! This was their third time in Portugal and they presented a very different work than what we were used to - Endorama an album with a good sense of gothicism. "Golden Age", "Chosen Few", "Everlasting Flame", "Passage to Babylon" and "Endorama" are excellent tracks but it was nothing more than disgust for those fans who didn't know the lastest album. Besides the new songs Kreator played also some classics like "Pleasure To Kill", "People of the Lie", "Extreme Aggression", "Flag of Hate" and "Tormenter." At the end there was also time for "Phobia", "Leave This World Behind", "Black Sunrise" and "Renewal". I came away with the feeling that the audience expected much more from this old trash metal institution that Kreator once were. It was depressing to see them leave with a sad look in their face!!!

Initializing this night were the Italians Novembre presenting the latest work "Classica". Unknown by most of the audience, the band was damaged by the poor sonority management and the fact that the audience preferred to spend too much time at the bar!!!!!
