Metropool, Hengelo, March 31, 2016
By Jeanny Petrocchi
Moonspell’s ROAD TO EXTINCTION TOUR started last month. Thursday March 31, was the day that Moonspell hit the Dutch turf once more. This Portuguese band performaned succesfully at the Metropool venue in Hengelo. It was quite an outstanding show with smoke, fog and foam and last but not least the output of these talented musicians.
The band went on stage with ‘Breathe’ and then followed by ‘Extinct’, both songs from their latest album EXTINCT. Several songs of their very first album WOLFHEART were also on the setlist. This album was a huge succes 20 years ag, for the then unknown band. The subsequent album IRRELIGIOUS got the band a large fan base in Europe. Songs of these two albums were the highlights of the evening. Songs as ‘Opium’, ‘Awake’, ‘Raven Claws’ and ‘Full moon madness’ could not be left out.
The scenery was suitably bathed in red light during the song of ‘Vampiria’. Fernando Ribeiro appeared on stage with a long red velvet cape. People had come to hear the old Moonspel land they’ve got a glimpse of it. Especially during the songs ‘Alma Mater’ and ‘Opium’ the audience went totally crazy.
The concert ended with the classic ‘Full moon Madness’. For those who couldn’t make it to Metropool and Baroeg, Moonspell will be performing again at Dokk’em Open Air this year.
