WORDS: ROSS BAKFR

MOONSPELL

This is a very special evening for Portuguese goth metallers Moonspell. Tonight, they play the famous Campo Pcqueno bullring, an event which will be filmed for the band’s upcoming live DVD ‘Under The Spell’ Entering this historic venue, 4,000 rabid supporters are gathered to witness a trio of performances, with material culled from ‘Wolfheart’, ‘Irreligious’ and current album ‘Extinct’. Excitement is palpable and when the crepuscular, blackened strains of *Wolfshade (A Werewolf Masquerade)’ usher in their appearance, the hometown crowd is lost in their thrall. Fans recall words to the debut offering well enough, but ‘Irreligious’ turns up the heat. ‘Opium’ and ‘Ruin a Misery’ arc despatched with ruthless efficiency and vocalist Fernando Ribeiro, draped in the Portuguese flag, exudes charisma like a real life lestat, extoling his followers to sing and thrust their fists skywards. The performance concludes with the entirety of the group’s latest opus ‘Extinct’, and their unwillingness to play it safe with more familiar material proves a triumphant success. Having garnered plaudits from around the world, ‘Extinct’ is perhaps their most immediate and chorus-driven work and shows a group at the peak of their powers.

About Terrorizer Magazine

I bloody love The Obsessed’s new album – it’s packed with grooves and riffs and isn’t one-dimensional in the slightest. I recall getting psyched when Relapse announced they had signed the band and since the news landed, plotting with the label about putting Wino and his band on the cover. It seems like aeons since they recorded the album last summer, but as Wino explains in our cover feature, a lot has been going on since that recording session. Go and read all about it now! And if you haven’t heard the album, please go check it out – it’s well worth the twenty-plus year wait since ‘The Church Within’. I always remember Wino and co. sticking out like a sore thumb when I saw them in Nottingham’s Rock City opening for Prong and Life Of Agony in support of that album – a sea of audience confusion greeted them, but the drive and honesty that oozed from the trio that night had a long-lasting impression on me, and I cannot wait to see them on our shores again soon, I hope. So, as always enjoy the issue in your hands. Every month Kez and the writing crew pour blood, sweat and tears into the issue to make it the best we can. It’s tough times out there, we have no crowd-funding hype machines behind us, just passion, belief and, frankly, stubbornness. And of course, enjoyment in the music. Take care and see you next month!
