Moonspell have announced that the English version of their official biography, “Wolves Who Were Men: The History Of Moonspell,” will be released this fall. The book was written by Ricardo S. Amorim and it will be available as a standalone paperback and as a deluxe box set.
The following was said about the book:
“Formed over a quarter century ago, Moonspell have faced both triumph and tribulation to become the most internationally celebrated Portuguese metal band in history. For the first time, their unique story is told in full in the new book Wolves Who Were Men: The History Of Moonspell, scheduled for release in English language in Autumn of 2019.
An epic, in-depth and candid read, author Ricardo S. Amorim follows the band from youthful black metal fans to experienced musicians battling the challenges of an ever-changing music industry, exploring Moonspell’s evolving sound while always focussing on the often-troubled human stories that lie behind the music. Including lengthy interviews with the group’s current and former members – as well as various comrades, including Rotting Christ, Cradle Of Filth, Samael, Kreator, The Gathering and Amorphis – it also features a wealth of images, many previously unpublished.
Presented by Crypt Publications, in unholy alliance with Cult Never Dies and Fernando Ribeiro’s own Alma Mater, Wolves Who Were Men is due to be issued in a standalone paperback format, as well as a deluxe box set format, including several exclusive extras. It is a must read for all Moonspell fans, as well as anyone interested in the continued development of the metal genre and the reality of life in a full-time metal band.”
