MOONSPELL NEW ALBUM 1755 TO BE OUT IN 2017

March 8th, 2017

The rumours are true! MOONSPELL is ready to release their next album this year.

The band is currently on pre-production with John Phipps orchestralmetal.com at their home studios (Inferno) in Portugal and has recently posted online some pictures of videos of their daily work at the studio.

The album title will be 1755 and it’s a quite surprising twist of events and direction for the band. Versing the Great Lisbon Earthquake (1755), the band has developed a lyrical concept that looks into the death and rebirth of Lisbon and how the disaster changed Religion, Politics and Philosophy in the whole of Europe. The surprise is that the album will be fully sung in PORTUGUESE!

What was supposed to be just a 4-song bonus for the LISBOA UNDER THE SPELL DVD-BLURAY (recorded last February in Lisbon with 4000 wild fans attending, to be released in 2018) evolved into a full length album that will be produced by Tue Madsen (Antfarm Studios, DK) who worked with the band in a few previous releases (UNDER SATANAE, NIGHT ETERNAL, ALPHA NOIR/OMEGA WHITE).

In the band’s own words, Fernando (lead singer) explains:

“We fell in love with the concept and made perfect sense to sing it in our national language, Portuguese. I guess we were just waiting for the right opportunity to work on such an album. Musically it will be heavier than Extinct. It will be earthshaking but also very detailed with orchestrations and percussion as we want people to relive the Lisbon of the 18th century. Singing it in Portuguese, allowed me to find a different expression as a vocalist and my job is to be the survivor of the Earthquake, roaming the ruins and telling you all about it.”

The band will tour Latin America soon and will play several festivals in the Summer.

MOONSPELL Films Lisbon Concert For 20th-Anniversary Video Release

February 13th, 2017

Portuguese metallers MOONSPELL filmed their February 4 concert at the Campo Pequeno arena in Lisbon, Portugal for their upcoming 20th-anniversary DVD. The show, which was witnessed by four thousand metalheads, saw the band performing three of its records live on stage: “Wolfheart”, “Irreligious” and “Extinct”.

Says MOONSPELL: “The show was filmed for a DVD release via Napalm Records and we believe these will make the Portuguese wolves’ fans very, very proud.

“MOONSPELL broke their ticket sale recording for a headline show in Portugal, and four thousand rabid fans have attended this show, making impossible history happen for a Portuguese metal band.”

MOONSPELL recently revealed it was working on a Portuguese-language EP about the 1755 Lisbon earthquake, also known as the Great Lisbon earthquake, which occurred in the Kingdom of Portugal. In combination with subsequent fires and a tsunami, the earthquake almost totally destroyed Lisbon and adjoining areas.

Moonspell

Interview with bassist Aires Pereira @ Audio, Glasgow

28th March 2016

Interviewed by Oliver M.

2016-03-28 17.54.27 - Copy

The last time we interviewed Moonspell was in Nuremberg in November 2015 during the second part of their Road to Extinction Tour. We had a very interesting conversation with charismatic vocalist Fernando Ribeiro. Since then, the Lusitanian werewolves supported Epica for their North American tour in the beginning of this year.

They’re currently touring throughout Europe to promote their last gothic monument “Extinct” for the third time. At their fantastic concert in Glasgow we had the opportunity to chat with the excellent bassist Aires Pereira. I personally would like to thank him deeply for his time and great enthusiasm.

The Road to Extinction European tour was a great success for Moonspell, with many sold out gigs in France, Portugal and the UK. They also sold a good number of VIP tickets for their most loyal wolves, which was something they have never done before. Their brand new album “Extinct” has been praised by the international critics and has also been a commercial success so far. It entered the charts of several European countries and was even number 1 in Portugal.

Before the beginning of their concert in Paris, I interviewed keyboardist Pedro Paixão with the presence of their tour manager Bruno Fernandes (previously known in Portugal for singing in several extreme metal acts such as The Firstborn and Nephtys). After interviewing vocalist Fernando Ribeiro two months ago, it was interesting to get a new point of view from the current kings of gothic metal in their luxurious tour bus.
