Moonspell Readies "Memorial" For Release

Since their legendary debut Wolfheart (1995), MOONSPELL have been on an ominous, winding path of musical exploration. 'Memorial' shows the band can still be atmospheric and melodic while also being extremely heavy. A video for the single, 'Finisterra' was recently shot and a clip for the 'Making Of Finisterra' has been posted online here.

Vocalist Fernando Ribeiro talks about the meaning behind 'Finisterra': "It translates from Latin as the end of the Earth. In the Middle Ages, Portugal stood on that position as it was, geographically, the end of Europe, and, by all means, the end of the known world. From Portugal on, across the Atlantic, there was darkness, mystery, fear and curiosity (Sapere Aude-Dare to know). I think this position still, to the day, haunts us and when mixed with personal stories and feelings, created a song that simply represents someone at the end of the world looking further down, not knowing if he wants to go or to stay or to come back."
