Set to be released on November 3rd 2017 on Napalm Records, this record will outclass all standards you have ever heard from MOONSPELL before!
The conceptual album dramaturgy feels like a detonation of the mind. ‘1755’ , the 13rd studio record by MOONSPELL, is more than just the band’s new magnum opus: It’s the musical version of the year of horror where a giant earthquake wrecked their hometown Lisbon. Naturally this album comes and is sung in Portuguese. ‘1755’ is a dark adventure in medieval landscapes – emotionally, technically and completely earthshaking!
Says frontman and creative spirit Fernando Ribeiro:“Even tough this all happened in 1755, there are still a lot of world and country leaders that think themselves as saints, with a sacred mission, chosen by any God. What really happens is that they save no one but themselves and this video showcases the message of the song: as in 2017 or 1755 all saints will not be enough to save us.”
The track list of ‘1755’ reads as follows:
1. Em Nome Do Medo
3. In Tremor Dei ( featuring Portuguese guest vocalist Paulo Bragança! )
7. 1 De Novembro
9. Todos Os Santos
10. Lanterna Dos Afogados
