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.”
