Formed over a quarter century ago, MOONSPELL has faced both triumph and tribulation to become the most internationally celebrated Portuguese metal band in history. For the first time, MOONSPELL‘s unique story is told in full in the new book “Wolves Who Were Men: The History Of Moonspell”, scheduled for release in English language in autumn of 2019.
An epic, in-depth and candid read, “Wolves Who Were Men: The History Of Moonspell” sees author Ricardo S. Amorim following the band from youthful black metal fans to experienced musicians battling the challenges of an ever-changing music industry, exploring MOONSPELL‘s evolving sound while always focussing on the often-troubled human stories that lie behind the music. Including lengthy interviews with the group’s current and former members — as well as various comrades, including ROTTING CHRIST, CRADLE OF FILTH, SAMAEL, KREATOR, THE GATHERING and AMORPHIS — it also features a wealth of images, many previously unpublished.
Presented by Crypt Publications, in unholy alliance with Cult Never Dies and MOONSPELL frontman Fernando Ribeiro‘s own Alma Mater, “Wolves Who Were Men” is due to be issued in a standalone paperback format, as well as a deluxe box set format, including several exclusive extras. It is a must-read for all MOONSPELL fans, as well as anyone interested in the continued development of the metal genre and the reality of life in a full-time metal band.
