Moonspell Vocalist Opens The Doors On "Hermitage"

It takes a lot to become a notable name in metal music. It takes even more to become successful enough that you're seen as your country's premier metal band, but there can be no question that when metal fans think of Portugal, they think of Moonspell.For nearly thirty years, Moonspell has proudly represented their country on the international metal stage, releasing such classic albums as "Wolfheart," "Irreligious," "Darkness And Hope" and "Memorial" and last month, the Iberian quintet unleashed their twelth full length opus, "Hermitage."

The album has already garnered high praise from critics, including a perfect rating from New Noise Magazine and will no doubt be seen as a key release by fans and the band themselves in the years to come. To find out more about the record, the creation process, title, art and much more, I spoke with the band's lead singer Fernando Ribeiro. You can watch the interview in full below. More...

Helloween Announces Tour With Hammerfall

Due to the pandemic, the dates for Helloween's European tour, that was originally scheduled for April/May 2021, have been postponed again. However, this is no reason to hang your head, as the newly rescheduled tour will be even more exciting.

We all have to stick together to make it through this agonising live music gap, and because extraordinary circumstances require extraordinary measures, Helloween have invited their friends from Hammerfall to join them on their rescheduled European tour, to create a tremendous metal-package. The United Forces tour 2022 will now not only feature the full Helloween experience, but fans will also get a taste of fine Swedish steel, straight out of the Hammerfall forge. Both bands will have brand-new albums in their arsenal, and it will be the first opportunity for European fans to experience these new songs live. The long–awaited end to this dry spell is finally in sight.

Andi Deris: “We are 'hammered' to have our friends from Hammerfall with us on tour! Back in 2002 the band produced their album “Crimson Thunder” in my studio in Tenerife and we had a lot of fun back then." This mega-package is delivering the appropriate metal-spectacle to enter the stage with full power!

Oscar Dronjak can hardly wait: "We are so ridiculously excited about this! Not only do we get to go out on tour again after two looooooooong years of stage draught, but we get to do it with a band that we love and was a great inspiration to us in forming HAMMERFALL in the first place. The United Forces tour will be something truly special, you can count on that!“ More...
