Moonspell Share “Extinct” Live Video From “Lisboa Under The Spell”

Moonspell have shared a new live video for “Extinct.” The footage comes from the band’s new live DVD/Blu-ray/3CD set “Lisboa Under The Spell,” which was released in August. The effort was recorded at Campo Pequeno in Lisbon, Portugal on February 4, 2017.

Fernando Ribeiro commented:

“Now that the DVD is out, I guess a lot of our fans already made up their minds about it and I guess rather were as surprised about its final epic form as we were surprised by the, no-bullshit, honest and very solid reactions to our new live release, praise, great reviews, chart entries at all. As far as I am concerned live releases don’t make the cut sometimes. That’s why the Lisboa Under The Spell you might or might not have already in your hands was so carefully thought out and packaged, reminding us of the very few live releases that make us sit in the couch and watch or listen the hell out of. Records like Life After Death (Maiden), Earth Inferno (Fields Of The Nephilim) and a few others. Those, with all due respect, were the ones who inspired us to do better. The addition of the album Extinct makes perfect sense to us, as this is the musical thread we are going to follow with the next opus and also because that was the last date of our very dear Road To Extinction tour that started off in 2015 and ended in our hometown, Lisbon on February 2017 e.v. We hope you enjoy this new clip from the title song ‘Extinct’, featuring the lovely and dangerous Portuguese actress Carolina Torres, brandishing the sword and watching her pack rocking out.”

Moonspell Share “Herr Spiegelmann” Live Video From “Lisboa Under The Spell”

Moonspell have shared a new live video for “Herr Spiegelmann.” The footage comes from the band’s new live DVD/Blu-ray/3CD set “Lisboa Under The Spell,” which will be released on August 17. The effort was recorded at Campo Pequeno in Lisbon, Portugal on February 4, 2017.

Fernando Ribeiro commented:

“‘Herr Spiegelmann’, or Mr. Mirrorman, is a song inspired by the amazing book of Patrick Suskind, ‘The Perfume’. I guess everybody knows that book; if not, shame on you.

I wrote the lyrics to the ‘execution scene,’ where people start seeing on the tortured, beaten down man on the stake, everything wonderful they want to see. Like a mirror man, reflecting their fears and ambitions and most secret wishes.

I really love this song and the visual part of it was specially designed for this show, with the laser gloves and the mirror jacket, in a tentative to convey the eerie and psychedelic atmosphere of the song.

I hope you guys enjoy this advance from ‘Lisboa Under The Spell’, as it does reflect the struggle for an original and emotional cut of the songs, just like a Moonspell show should be, add magic.”

Moonspell Share “Alma Mater” Live Video From “Lisboa Under The Spell”

Moonspell have shared a new live video for “Alma Mater.” The footage comes from the band’s new live DVD/Blu-ray/3CD set “Lisboa Under The Spell,” which will be released on August 17. The effort was recorded at Campo Pequeno in Lisbon, Portugal on February 4, 2017. Fernando Ribeiro commented:

“Moonspell’s ALMA MATER holds for us the true meaning of this Latin expression. It talks about something bigger which unite us, and it’s not God, Politics or football but an eternal sense of belonging and returning. That’s why ALMA MATER is the biggest Moonspell song. Enjoy it in its home country, our Alma Mater Portugal!!!”

Moonspell To Release “Lisboa Under The Spell” In August

Moonspell have announced that they will be releasing a new live DVD/Blu-ray/3CD set titled “Lisboa Under The Spell” on August 17. The effort was recorded at Campo Pequeno in Lisbon, Portugal on February 4, 2017. The band commented:

“We are thrilled to announce the release of our brand new live DVD/Blu-ray/3CD live album, entitled ‘Lisboa Under The Spell’! It was recorded live on our breathtaking capitol city of Lisbon and it’s nothing short of an epic trek of more than three action-packed hours! We have played ‘Wolfheart’, ‘Irreligious’ plus ‘Extinct’ in full, invited a bunch of guests, summoned our biggest strength to be up to the task, and it feels awesome to unleash a long-awaited live release from Moonspell. This edition will be full packed with amazing material, bonus CDs from the shows, a in depth documentary about the band, top sound, dramatic flair and a human picture of thousands of Portuguese witches and wolves under the spell. A great document of what we are on and off stage. Don’t miss out and visit Lisbon through the eyes of Moonspell fans and the genius work of director Victor Castro.”

Cradle Of Filth’s Lindsay Schoolcraft Joins Moonspell Onstage In Tilburg, Netherlands

During their February 1 show in Tilburg, Netherlands, Moonspell were joined onstage by Cradle Of Filth’s Lindsay Schoolcraft for a performance of “Scorpion Flower.” You can see fan-filmed footage of that below:

Last night I got the chance of a lifetime to be up on stage with @moonspellofficial and sing their signature duet “Scorpion Flower”. After the performance I could barely hold back tears. Not because the performance was bad! I’m happy to say I kept my pitch the whole time 😉 The reason was because many years ago I created a vision board and listed one of my crazy, out-there dreams as “Sing Scorpion Flower with Moonspell”. Since then I have accomplished many of my goals I set out to complete, but on occasion I felt defeated and like I wanted to give up. Some dreams were a hard reality and not always enjoyable and more often than you’d think I’d felt seriously cornered or at a dead end, but what I’m trying to say here is DO NOT GIVE UP. No matter how big or ridiculous your dream may be! The gentlemen in Moonspell have such humility and it was an honour to be up there on stage with them. That performance was proof that you can be anyone and come from anywhere and do big things! I’m just some chick from Oshawa, Canada and I NEVER GAVE UP and neither should you! Thank you endlessly to Fernando, Pedro, Ricardo, Aires, Mike and their fantastic crew for giving me this opportunity that I’ve held dear in my heart for so long.
