Where Moonspell lyrics don’t go


On March 1st 2018 we met up with Moonspell’s Fernando Ribeiro before their show in Antwerp, during their tour with Cradle of Filth.

Moonspell used to be one of my favorite bands as a young metalhead, and it shows — this interviewer was a tad star-struck. Awkward!

Fernando talks about the band relation between Cradle and Moonspell, how the new music form the 1755 album works on stage, about the use of stage props like a plague mask, and about bringing Portugese music to the stage in front of an international audience.

Other topics include the ‘Of wolf and man’ book that tells the Moonspell story, and Fernando’s love of books and poetry.

We also look back on 20 years of Sin Pecado and look forward towards a new album in 2019.
