Biography

Active: 1990s-2010s
Country Of origin: Portugal
Group Members: Fernando Ribeiro

Hailing from Portugal, the doomy goth metal quintet Moonspell consists of vocalist Fernando Ribeiro, guitarist Ricardo Amorim, keyboardist/programmer Pedro Paixão, bassist Sérgio Crestana, and drummer Mike Gaspar. After a poorly distributed 1994 album for the French Adipocere label, Moonspell debuted on Century Media in 1995 with Wolfheart; it was followed in 1996 by Irreligious and in 1998 by Sin/Pecado. Moonspell returned in 1999 with Butterfly Effect. Two years later, the group released Darkness and Hope, produced by Hiili Hiilesman. In 2003, Moonspell collaborated with author José Luís Peixoto to release The Antidote, an album and book of the same name that told a complete narrative. Three years later, the group returned with Memorial, which was produced by Waldemar Sorychta and was the first to be released on the SPV Steamhammer label. In 2008, the group released their ninth album, Night Eternal. The ambitious Alpha Noir, the band's ninth outing and first double LP, arrived in 2012, and was followed by Extinct in 2015. November 2017 saw the release of 1755, a concept album about the great Lisbon earthquake of 1755. ~ Steve Huey~ Rovi
