MOONSPELL Singer Discusses Upcoming Album (Sort Of)

Portugal's MOONSPELL have begun the pre-production process for their next studio album, which they hope to record early next year for a late 2003 release through Century Media Records.

The following is a cryptic update on the pre-production process from MOONSPELL frontman Fernando Ribeiro (as it appears on the group's official web site):

"As you all might imagine, MOONSPELL is well obsessed and advanced on the process of discovering our new album that timidly starts taking shape and dragging us into the shapeless. I ask your attention to the new feature the A diaries that is a new, labyrinthine way I found recently of introducing you all, who will take your precious time to read and think about it (actually where there is codes there to be read or reflected upon). They are records of a discovering of the album in which we give the clues to ourselves. These diaries are burned bridges to a well kept secret (they will start to be posted/unleashed here next Monday, the 21st of October). And why it is our album a well kept secret? Because we do not know it ourselves. In all honesty.

"This album, from which seven songs are being put on a demo as I speak, is actually a process of discovery. We feel like we are involved in a twisted method of desveiling rather than creating. Like picking the rocks up and see the bottom, what is under it. Rather than picking clay up and mould to it. The way it is translating is exciting for us, it has the excitement of fear and of the horror fiction that, the only clue about it so far, one of the cornerstones for this new opus we are learning to communicate. On the egoistic dimension purely. So far, of course. I can feel it growing. You will."

In other news, MOONSPELL are planning a DVD release to coincide with the group's ten-year anniversary next year (the group's debit demo, "Anno Satanae", was issued in 1993). More details will be made available in the months to come.
