MOONSPELL - Unveils Second Single And Video From Upcoming Album

Portuguese dark metal pioneers Moonspell have revealed a brand new single and video - “Common Prayers”. This is already the second revealed song from the Moonspell's upcoming album, Hermitage, which will be released on 26th February via Napalm Records. Moonspell is not only approaching their 30th band anniversary more ambitiously and stronger than ever, but with their forthcoming record, they created a wonderfully intuitive, yet epic masterpiece and a testament to what they’ve always loved the most: Honest, emotional metal that binds us even in these dark times.

Following upon their just recently unleashed album opening track, “The Greater Good“, today Moonspell is sharing their second single and a brand new video for “Common Prayers“! Directed by Guilherme Henriques and featuring actress, singer and performer Aurora Pinho, this clip was shot 90 meters below the surface at the amazing caves of Grutas de Mira d’Aire, one of Portugal’s seven natural wonders. With a classy gothic and catchy feel, Moonspell flexes their best songwriting skills. The lyrical content is “perverse, almost religious” and deals with the 18th century pregnancy surge amidst Portuguese nuns. Twenty century demolitions and excavations unearthed the bones of hundreds of children, revealing the sad faith of Jesus’ sons and daughters.

Vocalist Fernando Ribeiro states: “Political? Religious? Who the fuck cares, really? Music is, for Moonspell, about self-expression, and we are old enough to pick our battles. "Common Prayers" is the kind of song we love to write, sensual, different, with a to-die-for chorus. Hermitage is coming your way, you can run, but you cannot hide. Staying safe is staying smart. Say a prayer!”

With “Common Prayers” Moonspell successfully builds upon their previous dark works. Watch their brand new music video right here, and over HERE you can check out the previously released video for “The Greater Good“. Link
