RockmusicRaider Review - Moonspell - Night Eternal - Album CoverBy Loki, the 9th studio album ‘Night Eternal’ of the Portuguese band ‘Moonspell’ is hard chow. You really need to listen to this jumble of tracks a few times and apply some goodwill at first. And I mean really go for it! To take it all in IS tough – Black Metal laced Gothic Metal stuff coming out of my earphones. Brutal – technically very demanding – riffs and harsh vocals assaulting your eardrums and virtually marching through your brain (if it is not burned away – that is – after listening to this record repeatedly). But then the vampire or the thing that dwells in the darkness inside you will wake and you start to like this harsh tune served with a #Metal hammer by our Southern friends.Got hooked?

RockmusicRaider Review - Moonspell - Extinct - Album CoverWhoa! What a nice slab of metal! When first starting to listen to the 11th full length album Extinct of the Portuguese band Moonspell (yes, metal also happens down South), I was not very impressed and – at first – it did not stick. But then their tune started to get glued to the inside of my eardrums, slowly, but surely getting into my mind and bloodstream somehow. What the hell?

Their offering sounds like a weird and metal laden mix between the later ‘Depeche Mode’ and a metallic version of ‘Alphaville’ (yes the pop band in their former years, not today – way back – and for sure no metal).Got hooked? Raid this some more...
