Moonspell: Darkness And Hope

1. Product Details

Vinyl LP pressing. Originally released in 2001 and celebrating it's 20th anniversary this year, MOONSPELL's fifth album, Darkness And Hope, caught the band in a strange crossroad upon it's debut. Their first four records saw them skyrocketing from Portugal into Gothic Metal stardom, yet their almost violent musical swings left a lot of their fans confused and unaware of what to expect next. Nonetheless, Darkness and Hope was the ticket for many followers of the band to continue their journey with the Portuguese wolves. The reconciliatory album, lost in between the light and the shadow, included amazing melancholic anthems such as 'Nocturna', 'How We Became Fire' and 'Than The Serpents In My Arms' - not to mention the inclusion of tracks delivering MOONSPELL's very own brand of infectious gothic metal like classics 'Firewalking' or 'Devilred'!" Darkness And Hope is such a representative title for that period in our personal lives and also as musicians, as a band," Fernando Ribeiro reveals. "We were astray and this album made us find our way again into our songs, our darkness, our will to play music together for many years to come. We had a hard time, after an album so experimental like The Butterfly Effect, to make our peace with Darkness and Hope. We were depressed and extremely sad when we went to Finland to do this album and by making it, we raised our heads again and since then never gave up the fight for our fans' hearts and souls. Moonspell might be darkness but for sure we are hope too." Gone out of print and sold out for many years, Darkness And Hope will finally be re-released and available on vinyl LP and digipack CD, re-designed to portray the obscure elegance of the original album. This must-have reissue also contains the cover version of Ozzy Osbourne's 'Mr. Crowley'. MOONSPELL may be celebrating 20 years of Darkness and Hope in glorious style, but they once again prove in this day and age that they are still the hopeful kings of the dark!
