MOONSPELL premiere 'Evento' lyric video

Moonspell - 1755 thumb
Quote from Fernando Ribeiro:


"Bury the dead. Take care of the living". Is one of the most famous quote of Marquis of Pombal (Sebastião José Carvalho e Melo), the minister of the King who together with the crowds of Lisbon and his engineers rebuilt a new Lisbon from the ashes and ruins of the old in just one year time. Event talks about fate, a dialogue built between the narration of the day and the state of mind of Lisbon's inhabitants and the all powerful choir telling me to be still and accept God's will. This conflict and the desacralisation of Lisbon is one of the most interesting aspects of this accursed day. A fight that allowed Portugal to step out finally from the Middle Ages and make the country's entry into Enlightenment."


MOONSPELL - 'Evento' (Lyric Video)

Dark Metal's finest art project MOONSPELL outclasses all standards with their colossal new release "1755". The twelfth record from these Portuguese gothic masters is an orchestral adventure including siren like choirs with a Wagnerian pomp! Strings, bongos, oriental singing, grand guitars are just a tiny part of this amazing piece of work. From the first superincumbent second, the conceptual dramaturgy of MOONSPELL's work feels like a detonation of the mind. Playful and mean-spirited. "1755" is their magnum opus.

This musical masterpiece, produced by Tue Madsen ( (Meshuggah, The Haunted, Dark Tranquility, Dir En Grey, Die Apokalyptischen Reiter ), represents the year of horror where a giant earthquake wrecked their home of Lisbon. Naturally this album is sang completely in Portuguese. The album features Paulo Bragança, supplying a hauntingly voice of a Fado fallen angel who is a big part of the Portuguese culture. His fascinating vocals are featured in "In Tremor Dei" (eng.: "Fear Of God"). "1755" is an adventure in medieval landscapes full of threats, guarded by stirring hymns including the bad luck "Desastre". Choirs filled with fear stab into the wild disharmony of the guitars. The album is emotional, technical and completely earthshaking!
