A performance clip of the song "Herr Spiegelmann", taken from MOONSPELL's upcoming "Lisboa Under The Spell" release, can be seen below.
Commented frontman Fernando Ribeiro: "'Herr Spiegelmann', or Mr. Mirrorman, is a song inspired by the amazing book of Patrick Suskind, 'The Perfume'. I guess everybody knows that book; if not, shame on you.
"I wrote the lyrics to the 'execution scene,' where people start seeing on the tortured, beaten down man on the stake, everything wonderful they want to see. Like a mirror man, reflecting their fears and ambitions and most secret wishes.
"I really love this song and the visual part of it was specially designed for this show, with the laser gloves and the mirror jacket, in a tentative to convey the eerie and psychedelic atmosphere of the song.
"I hope you guys enjoy this advance from 'Lisboa Under The Spell', as it does reflect the struggle for an original and emotional cut of the songs, just like a MOONSPELL show should be, add magic."
A unique and solemn spell seems to shroud every spot as soon as Portuguese alchemists MOONSPELL enter the stage — and it was a very special evening indeed when the band played an exceptional show at the Campo Pequeno arena in their hometown Lisbon on February 4, 2017. That inimitable bond between the gothic metal act and 4,000 of its fans in the sold-out venue is pure electricity, captured for all eternity on the massive live DVD/Blu-ray/3CD package "Lisboa Under The Spell", which will be released on August 17 via Napalm Records.
Commented the band on the release: "We are thrilled to announce the release of our brand new live DVD/Blu-ray/3CD live album, entitled 'Lisboa Under The Spell'! It was recorded live on our breathtaking capitol city of Lisbon and it's nothing short of an epic trek of more than three action-packed hours! We have played 'Wolfheart', 'Irreligious' plus 'Extinct' in full, invited a bunch of guests, summoned our biggest strength to be up to the task, and it feels awesome to unleash a long-awaited live release from MOONSPELL. This edition will be full packed with amazing material, bonus CDs from the shows, a in depth documentary about the band, top sound, dramatic flair and a human picture of thousands of Portuguese witches and wolves under the spell. A great document of what we are on and off stage. Don't miss out and visit Lisbon through the eyes of MOONSPELL fans and the genius work of director Victor Castro."
It was definitely time, since MOONSPELL aficionados have been thirsting for a new live release ever since "Lusitanian Metal" (2008)! Thus, "Lisboa Under The Spell" is not simply a visual testimony to the success of Portugal's biggest metal band — it is a celebration of the unbound creativity and pure magic that is MOONSPELL.
