Portuguese gothic metallers Moonspell have released previews from their upcoming new album ”Alpha Noir/Omega White”, set for release on April 27th in Europe and May 8th in North America via Napalm Records. You can listen to them below.
To remind, Moonspell will during the autumn together with Pain lead Into The Darkness Tour 2012. and together with Swedes Lake Of Tears and Finns Swallow The Sun put Europe under the dark spells.
„Lickanthrope“ will be the first video clip to come out of the Alpha Noir album. It will be directed by Filipe Melo, who worked with the band on the I will see you in my dreams videoclip, recorded ten years ago. The shooting will be made in Nandufe, Tondela, in the central region of Portugal.
The synopsis by the director, Filipe Melo:
„Little red riding hood enters a bar,in an abandoned house amidst the woods. In this bar, the regulars are not your average kind of people- it’s a place of vice, where a pack of wolves and other unearthly creatures find solace. Moonspell are just another part of the varied local entertainment. However when things go wild we will see that the band isn’t just what meets the eye.“
In a cross between the pagan Portuguese folklore and a tribute to the classic Hammer movies this videoclip will bring out not only the ferocious intensity of this song but will have its place in Portuguese Film history as the first werewolf transformation ever made in Portugal.
The videoclip features also several local Theatre and cultural groups, Portuguese actors and a special appearance by the very own Suicide Girls Portugal, in a task force which will blow your mind.
The video will be premiered in Moonspell’s/Napalm Records youtube channels as well as selected TV shows and online pages. Beware the wolves at night, beware the lunar light!
MOONSPELL have set “Alpha Noir” as the title of their new album, due on April 27 via the band’s new label, Napalm Records.
Fernando Ribeiro: “A true band has to have to a glorious past, a solid present and a bright future. More than that, a true band has to know how to live throughout all these seasons, dealing with their ghosts, their shadows, their aim at the light, moulding darkness with personality, with the impulse to be better, to do better while getting close to theirselves. Their true heart, soul and flesh.
“Never a MOONSPELL album came so close to be absolute like the new opus magna (masterpiece) ’Alpha Noir’, scheduled to be proudly released by Napalm Records on April 27th, when spring racks through the wastes of winter, bursting new colours over familiar sights, once silent and white, now fiery under the blackest of suns.
