According to a posting on the web site of Turkey's top-selling metal magazine Headbang, Portugese metallers MOONSPELL were forced to cancel their headlining performance this past Friday (June 6) at the 10th-anniversary celebration of a Turkish high school's spring festival, dubbed Kalfest. MOONSPELL apparently could not play the show because of an unexpected rainstorm which caused technical problems with the band's sound system.
Kalfest was organized by the Kadiky Anadolu High School in partnership with Insomnia Productions.
Professionally filmed footage of MOONSPELL's June 5, 2008 peformance at the Rock in Rio festival in Lisbon, Portugal can be viewed below.
MOONSPELL's new album, "Night Eternal", entered the national chart in Portugal at No. 3 and in Germany at No. 62.
The follow-up to 2006's "Memorial" was recorded at Antfarm studios in Denmark with producer Tue Madsen (THE HAUNTED, DARK TRANQUILLITY, HALFORD).
Two editions of the record were made available: A limited double digipack with different artwork, one bonus track ("Age of Mothers"),a different version of the song "Scorpion Flower", the full album as well as a bonus DVD containing all video clips from "Memorial" plus "Finisterra" "making-of" footage and three live clips from last year's performance at the Wacken Open Air festival in Germany; plus the jewel case edition.
MOONSPELL's video for the track "Scorpion Flower" is one of two (along with "Night Eternal") off the group's new album, "Night Eternal", which were shot by Ivan Colic (TYPE O NEGATIVE, SYMPHONY X, HAMMERFALL) in Belgrade, Serbia. Colic previously worked with the group on the "Memorial" video for "Finisterra".
