Moonspell Named Best Portuguese Act By MTV Europe

Moonspell won MTV Europe's award for Best Portuguese Act, competing with multi-platinum Hip - Hop and Pop bands. This is the first time in history that a Metal band has won this award. The band has issued the following statement online:

"We won MTV Euro awards for best Portuguese act and wish to dedicate it to all people around the world who voted for us and helped Moonspell to become a stronger band and Portuguese Metal more known to the abroad scene! Thank you a million moons!!! ~Fernando and Moonspell"
