MOONSPELL Shares Brand New Details For Upcoming "Irreligious" Anniversary Reissue!

"IRRELIGIOUS is one of those albums that tell a story from beginning to end. It is THE album for me, that combined two of my favorite genres, metal and goth rock, into something groundbreaking and immortal. Irreligious is Moonspell‘s ‘s „Master of Puppets“. To me, they are one of the bravest and most important bands in the world.“ - Mille Petrozza, Kreator

Portugal’s undisputed kings of gothic and dark metal, MOONSPELL, have revealed some brand new details about the upcoming reissue of their pathbreaking, 1996- album Irreligious!

MOONSPELL‘s second album, containing timeless classics such as Opium, Raven Claws, Herr Spiegelmann, Mephisto or the ultimate MOONSPELL anthem, Fullmoon Madness, has not only helped the band to redefine their manifold style, but it will take you back to the late Nineties, when gothic was more dark and beautiful than in any other year or age. Irreligious stands out as the archetype of Gothic Metal, at one time modern and classic, and an album that influenced dark music generations since decades.

“Irreligious is the the crossroad where Metal meets Gothic and lead the way to a different style and fusion between the darkened elegance of Goth and the powerful depths of Heavy Metal.” Frontman Fernando Ribeiro states.
