The Press Release:
Originally released by the band in 1998, Sin/Pecado became the great divider of the Moonspell wolfpack. Produced by their long time companion (Waldemar Sorychta-Wolfheart, Irreligious), the songs of this “accursed” album were signs of a rebellion of the band against the sound that made them famous in the scene. Instead of wolves and vampires, Moonspell set the compass to songs filled with electronica and darkwave moods that talked about the European Community or the love for a woman. December 13rd2019 will see the band, in collaboration with Napalm Records and under the licence of Century Media, to re-release their pathbreaking Sin/Pecado album in a Deluxe Edition; serving a sinful cup to our lips and see if that red wine has aged better or tastes sweeter than more than twenty years ago!
“Moonspell’s biggest flaw or quality, judge for yourself, is never to be satisfied with anything. Frontman Ribeiro says.“There was true creative anguish burning inside us in 1997, after we were done with the endless Irreligious’ tours, that created the perfect (shit)storm that would be Sin. It was a strange year for us, Paradise Lost, My Dying Bride, were letting loose and seemed to be also under the same mood as we did, or vice-versa. It doesn’t matter. Metal was turning its wheel and we’re all on the falling side. We took the fall and enjoyed doing it anyway. It wasn’t Moses dividing the waters, but it did hurt sometimes to feel alone. Curiosly a lot of other people entered Sin’s mood a couple of years later and now they beg of us to play those songs live. If you’re reading this and need another taste at sin, let’s indulge each other and pick up that second skin from the late-nineties deep closet.” Continue reading Napalm Records to Reissue Moonspell’s “Sin/Pecado” & “2econd Skin” Albums→
Now here is a little bit of touring news that I was hoping to see happen sooner than later. It seems that Epica will be returning to this neck of the woods in the beginning of 2016 to make up the dates that had to be dropped during their most recent Fall run. Check out the poster and the official statement and then we can discuss a little more.
The Details: The Mighty Moonspell is returning to NYC and taking command of the headlining stage this time around. Yes the “America Noir Tour” will lay waste to venues around the country and lucky for us, we are going to get the bands brand of Dark Metal here at the Gramercy Theatre. The tour also finds the bands Leaves Eyes and Atrocity joining in for the fans and since neither of those bands are here all that often you know that you don’t want to miss out if at all possible. Thanks to the fine folks at Livenation, we are putting some of the PiercingMetal diehards into the venue for free. What’s cooler than that? Read more.
