Well, here it is folks, the first song from Moonspell's new album "Extinct"!

I love it!

This could easily be a new HIM song featuring Fernando Ribeiro. Very radio-friendly, very tame; somewhat lame. This lion has definitely lost its teeth...

That's a damn shame; Alpha Noir ripped pretty hard.

I concur with the 'this sucks' sentiments expressed here.

Hard to believe this band is the same that made Wolfheart.

I can dig it, I liked Omega White more than Alpha Noir so I'm all for them doing more with the goth rock side.

This band keeps experimenting without denying its gothic metal roots. The new track is an excellent catchy gothic rock anthem that might not please to gothic black metal fans but that easily beats 95% of all gothic rock bands. HIM and Co. haven't released such a tight single in decades by now. I might offer this album as a gift to a gothic rock fan I know ;-)

Stranger things have happened. 20 years between "Wolfheart" and "Extinct". 14 years between "Blasphemy Made Flesh" and "The Unspoken King".

Not bad but nothing special. I find the softer side of Moonspell to be very hit and miss. I couldn’t get into Omega White for that reason. Thought Alpha Noir was excellent though and absolutely loved Night Eternal so I’ll check it out.

I enjoy gothic rock like this. The only time I ever paid attention to this band was with that debut album. That was cool. Never got in the habit of listening to these guys. For those that do enjoy stuff like this, Lacrimas Profundere released an album 2 years ago that rips. Definitely check it out.

Plugs out of the way, Septicflesh dude needs to diversify his art.

That track wasn't exceptional but I liked it. I'm wondering if Moonspell's continuing down the direction of Omega White, as this new song seems to indicate. As much as I liked Alpha Noir, Omega sounded like the more inspired record. Sticking with that sound might not be a bad thing. Looking forward to the new album either way. Moonspell's been pretty consistent over the past decade, so I've no reason to believe Extinct will suck.

I have all their albums and saw them live, awesome live show. I'm a fan so I'm just going to shut up and listen, then blow my money.

Liked the new track. It's a shame it's not metal, but on the other hand, I like it for what it is, even if it's a downgrade from Alpha Noir.

Its a good track and like it, though it lacks some strenght in the vocals.

Its good to have them back to the goth metal/rock style because they truly know how to compose good albums in this style. And about the references of Wolfheart and their heaviest stuff they have done truly dark and heavy albums like Memorial so I think that is good if they try to do something different, repetition is the easiest way to die as a musician.

I like the track, with the exception of Butterfly Efect (wich can be replaced by Daemonarch of course), they can do no wrong.

Daemonarch was pretty good aye. Remember that fondly.

As for Seth Siro Anton's work, this latest is just yet another piece that is super boring to look at. I don't know where he's going wrong. Use of colour is always good, the ideas are there, I think it's something to do with his childish take on Photoshop. Just stapling different things together without any real restraint or style. Not that he hasn't done a couple of great covers in the last decade (Night Eternal, In Requiem) but the vast majority just look pointless. Especially when compared to the paintings he did for old Septic Flesh stuff, and that first Horrified album, which were amazing.

Sometimes with a band like this I just have to remember I like other styles of music other than metal purely all the time too. These guys are obviously not black metal anymore and that's okay.

Often when the band name in cases like this get mentioned one just has these fond flashbacks to really decent black metal times... Moonspell and Tiamat are both releasing listenable albums, just not metal anymore. Thats fine.


In the right mood I can appreciate this I think... although my first comment of it sucks certainly keeps popping back up, guess it's parts here and there that work good, hating the cross between more metal moments and then cleaner rock moments.
It's like be one or the other maybe for me? ugghh

Both work :) These blends work fine if the compositions themselves are all right. To my ears they're well-written enough even if they're going for even more rock than before.

Pretty sure you're missing the "anymore" part, mate, as they're just referring to the sound of this new album - obviously stuff like Wolfheart and Alpha Noir are metal.

Song's pretty good, great vocal hook in the chorus and the melodic keyboard flourishes are nice. I can understand some people being disappointed because it's not really "metal" per se. That album art is a little ridiculous, but I'm not a huge fan of realistic portrayals of dead bodies and stuff. I guess I'm a bit of a wuss. :p

I used to really enjoy this band. I loved Ave End and Filthy Notes for Frozen Hearts. But when their original vocalist Christopher Schmid left, their music dulled.

Back to Moonspell, I think their music took a less interesting detour after parting ways with Century Media, same as their former label mates Tiamat. There's something about label changes that rubs me the wrong way, especially with bands that have been signed to one label for a good chunk of their careers. Perhaps different labels demand their bands take different approaches to their music? I dunno.

Huh, that song didn't go over very well for me vocally. I like the leads, and it's got good parts to it. The instrumentation is what I'm digging after repeated listens. The "core" of what you'd expect in the song, namely the verses and choruses, were quite secondary to me.

I agree in part for the 2 after, but definitely give Antiadore a listen. It brings it back to Frozen Hearts quality.

Okay, that newest song is more like it. I haven't listened to any Moonspell in a long time. I might pick this up.

Not keen on the other songs that have been previewed but 'The Last of Us' actually sounds OK to me on a revisit. It does remind me of Lacrimas Profundere at the height of their mascara-caked powers.

Just heard the new album. Never been a huge fan of these guys but I'm REALLY liking Extinct. Gothic metal done right imo.
