MOONSPELL picture
Moonspell is a Portuguese black metal/dark metal band with death metal and doom metal elements. Moonspell was formed in 1989 as Morbid God. After renaming themselves Moonspell in 1992, they released their first EP Under the Moonspell in 1994, a year before of the release of their first album Wolfheart. The band quickly gained status and became one of the most recognizable metal bands from Portugal.

The early days (1992-1994) Although they had been playing since 1989 under the name of "Morbid God", the band became Moonspell in 1992, the same year they released the promo track "Serpent Angel". In 1993, singer Fernando Ribeiro , drummer Mike Gaspar and bass player Ares (not to be confused with Aires Pereira) released the demo Anno Satanae, which caught the attention of French label Adipocere. It was for Adipocere that Moonspell released in 1994 a mini-album entitled Under the Moonspell. The record was

MOONSPELL Under the Moonspell

EP · 1994 · Black Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
siLLy puPPy
If the cover of UNDER THE MOONSPELL looks familiar its because the album “Under Satanae” has a very close variation of the cover from this debut EP. That is no coincidence since that much more recognized release contains remakes of many of the tracks on this EP. Despite the fact that many of these tracks have been rereleased and improved upon that doesn't negate the fact that these first editions are fairly well constructed tracks themselves. MOONSPELL proved from the getgo that they were a talented and unique entity in the metal world by creatively fusing folk, black and gothic elements together to suit their own purposes. The result is a very successful hybrid that delivers melody, aggression and vampire inspired themes.

MOONSPELL is probably one of the most famous metal acts to emerge from Portugal and on this debut album they lay it all down without hesitation. We hear all the elements that make great metal music churned out in a carefully crafted format. This music really floats my boat as it takes all the elements of the aforementioned metal subgenres and blends them together into a satisfying cohesive whole. Despite the unintelligible lyrics we get the lyrical themes of dark folklore and macabre poetry in both English and Portuguese. In a country where I would expect influences from such homegrown music as Fado and the like, MOONSPELL surprises by integrating a more Celtic folk sound with their blackened Gothic metal in a way that is obvious as to why they have become a major force in the metal world.

MOONSPELL Under Satanæ

I tend to be rather sceptical of metal bands making rerecordings, but I'd make Under Satanae by Moonspell a major exception to this. Since the original Anno Satanae and Under the Moonspell demos, which these songs had taken from, the sound of the band had radically transformed from a black metal-dominated sound (with influences of folk and gothic metal beginning to emerge on Under the Moonspell) to a much more predominantly gothic sound.

The genius move Moonspell make here is in not trying to recapture their early sound, but instead adapting these old songs to their new sound, slowing them down, teasing out the gothic and folk metal flourishes that had already been there, and adding further layers of gothic menace besides. The end result is a radical reinterpretation of the material in question which retains a little more black metal fury than was typical for Moonspell at this point in their career but at the same time presents a fresh and new look at these songs, so the rerecording does not feel redundant or unnecessary next to the originals. Memo to any other metal band contemplating a rerecording: don't bother unless it's at least a major departure from the original versions as this one is.

On this second album Moonspell seem to dial back the black metal and folk influences which had made their debut such an interesting cocktail and instead choose to focus on gothic metal with some symphonic flourishes. In most cases, I'd be bewailing the fact that their sound had shifted from something unique to something a little more generic, but the album is saved by the fact that Moonspell are actually damn good at the gothic metal game and are able to deliver a solid and enjoyable album in this style. Just don't expect another Wolfheart going in, because I honestly don't think we're going to get one of those.

MOONSPELL Alpha Noir / Omega White

Album · 2012 · Gothic Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Warthur
Alpha Noir offers a snarling, spooky, back-to-basics gothic metal outing which proves that gothic metal bands like Moonspell can still rock out. Not quite as brutal as the claimed influences - classic-era Bathory was never this polished - but still good stuff nonetheless. Some editions come not just with bonus tracks, but a whole bonus album in the form of Omega White (recollections of Marilyn Manson’s spacey alien Omega persona and “Coma White” fictional lover from Mechanical Animals, perhaps?), which claims to offer a more atmospheric Sisters of Mercy/Type O Negative affair. On balance, I’d say that Omega White is more of a Type O Negative affair than anything (heck, even the vocals sound like a bit like the late Peter Steele), but it’s a tasty atmospheric counterpoint to the more straight-ahead Alpha Noir, so I’d recommend people go for the special edition which comes with both albums and which (so far as I’m aware) is the only way to get Omega White.

MOONSPELL Wolfheart

Album · 1995 · Black Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Warthur
Moonspell's debut album is an interesting blend of disparate forms of metal, taking a gothic metal base and jazzing it up by sprinkling on black metal and symphonic metal influences and lashing all these bits together in a progressive framework, and then cramming on the odd gentle folky moment here and there for good measure.

Although I'm really not into the vocals (with the notable exception of Birgit Zacher's female vocals), on the whole the album is an entertaining listen which shows an excellent command of various approaches to metal, and the band do an excellent job of integrating these various styles without making their compositions sound disjointed or incoherent.
