Goth Rock. Tracklist Slow Down! The Hanged Man 13! Add Review Dronemf11 August 10, Report. There's no boring and stupid songs like on their other albums and new ones.
Reply Notify me Helpful. The end of "VC Gloria Domini " includes the opening bit of percussion in "Eurotica," then cuts off suddenly. The singer feels his greater understanding of that bigger picture helped him mature as a writer. But these lyrics foreshadowed the state of the world today. Yesterday, I went to have a coffee at an Italian restaurant, and there was a photo of [Benito] Mussolini, the fascist leader from the Second World War.
So things are really complicated. The more orchestral featured Ribeiro singing and growling in Portuguese, and was inspired by the Lisbon earthquake from November The music is more laid back, but the dark atmosphere is still here.
Moonspell really drag you into a dark world like all of their releases. It's not exactly candy sweet at any moment on here. It is perhaps even more realistically dark then any of their other albums. In this darkness is the desolation of those who have fallen so far into decadence they cannot find a way out.
Often one feels an essence of despair running through sensual delight. The band really manages to capture a good atmosphere.
Exactly how they capture this atmosphere is through more melodic guitar riffs, the same tribal driving drumming as is on every single Moonspell release, swirling keyboards, less ornately gothic then the last two albums, they are often less used then on Wolfheart even, except to back up the general atmosphere set by the guitars.
A few songs put them on the front burner, and they do not let you down. There is a definite ethereal gothic feeling to the keyboards. Either you like that or not, I happen to. The vocals tie all the other elements together. The focus is on the clean crooning, his vocals are not as deep as on Wolfheart, but are still very deep and Sisters of Mercy-like.
Perhaps with less of the Type O Negative stylings. There are a few touches of the screams of old. The melodies he sings always have a very dark feeling though, and even at times when the music seems less dark, the vocals manage to bring the dark atmosphere. Now despite how much I like most of this album, a few songs fail, sometimes miserably, mainly a song like 2econd Skin. Everyone will find a few other songs to always skip over, but that is the main one for me.
But this does not lead me to say this is the worst album ever like many fans. Sure it's not as conventionally heavy as Irreligious and maybe not as dark castle gothicky as Wolfheart, but it is still quality and is still Moonspell. Anyone who claims this is a big step down or even all that much different then Wolfheart obviously did not pay much attention to that album or to Moonspell in general.
Moonspell created their own sound, and they stuck to it, while moving around at will within the confines they created for themselves on their first album. Yes if you dislike more ethereal gothic rock then maybe you will dislike this album, but don't claim it to be weak because of that, and don't claim it to be a big step away from Moonspell's normal sound, because it isn't.
Moonspell couldn't have been expected to make their first album over and over again, and if you have an open mind that isn't clogged then check this out. I personally enjoy it a lot, and I know there are others who feel the same. I've owned this album for over a year now and it has not grown boring in any way. In fact for me asides from a few songs it's easier to listen to this from beginning to end then even Wolfheart.
Mainly because this album is not touted as being something it is not like that album always is. Moonspell tore down all of the pre-conceptions around them on here, and I can only respect a band who has such blantant disregard for the majority of their fans. Connect to Spotify.
