Moonspell Uploads "The Hermit Saints" Music Video

This Friday, February 26 will see Portuguese dark metal godfathers Moonspell unleash their highly acclaimed 13th studio album, "Hermitage," via Napalm Records.

With "Hermitage," Moonspell is not only approaching their 30th band anniversary more ambitiously and stronger than ever, but they take us on an entertaining and emotional ride through the darkest days of human existence. Moonspell's forthcoming record is a wonderfully intuitive, yet epic masterpiece, and a testament to what the band always loved the most: Honest metal that binds us even in these dark times.

Building upon the dark, revolutionary and sensitive facets of the album, Moonspell's new album is also epic as hell! Inspired by their metal roots and underground metal bands like Bathory, the final single to surface before Hermitage drops, "The Hermit Saints," takes us on an epic trip to the heights of the world and the lows of the abysses. Accented by melodic groove and bombastic choruses, this track is sure to become a fan favorite! Watch the new music video for "The Hermit Saints" below. More...

Starting within the very first seconds of the energetic "Keelhauled," it is crystal clear that Alestorm are one of the most creative and unique live bands out there today - and judging by Tilburg’s incredible live audience of 3,000 fans, the band’s unmatched energy leaves no one standing still. Feast your eyes on Alestorm’s exciting funfest of a live show experience - featuring everyone’s favorite giant blow-up rubber ducky and loads of alcohol - from the comfort of your own couch!

Christopher Bowes about "Live in Tilburg":
"Oh wow! Live concerts! Remember those? Nah, me neither. Anyway, a couple of years ago we played a giant show at the 013 in Tilburg, Netherlands. It was a whole lot of fun. We even filmed the whole thing. And when we released the recording for free on YouTube last year, a whole bunch of you said you really liked it. And being the treasure-hungry sellout pirates that we are, it made us realize we could probably convince a bunch of you to buy it if we wrapped it in plastic and stuck it in a big wooden box. We even added some low-effort bonus features. Enjoy!" More...
