MOONSPELL Frontman Checks In

Vocalist Fernando Ribeiro of the Portuguese metal band MOONSPELL has issued the following update:

"After a quite enjoyable and successful weekend on Graspop [Metal Meeting in Dessel, Belgium] and Hunterfest [in Poland], we are back for some more festivals, which is nothing but great!!!

"Graspop was simply amazing for us, with a full tent watching and enjoying, I guess around 15,000 saw the show and to have Anneke [former THE GATHERING and current AGUA DE ANNIQUE singer Anneke van Giersbergen] with us was nothing short than a honor and a quite special moment for all of the souls in the stage and off stage. She has a great presence and a wonderful voice and I have invited her to join MOONSPELL, of course. Let's see if she accepts... Whatever the answer is for sure it wasn't the last time we shared the stage for 'Scorpion Flower'.....

"Hunterfest was our very first open-air [festival] in Poland where we have a great history of live shows and in spite of the commotion created by that Christian Fascist Mr. Nowak, the show was great and we got to hang out for a while with our friends in KATATONIA (great show, guys!) and to meet again the one and only Paul Di'Anno (a killer!). We played 'First Light' for the very first time ever and that was a quite emotional moment...

"Friday we return (finally) to Sweden, to Avrika Festival where we play the Apollo Stage from 18.45 on, the set will be 60 minutes. Sunday we will be a part of the Last Supper of With Full Force festival in Germany, and will hit the stage at midnight and play for 40 intense minutes. Before that we will be signing autographs at the Rock Hard tent from 20.00 to 20.45."
