LG, you are probably the funniest guy ever, 'Cookie Monster', I just about choked to death on my orange juice.
LG did you check out the first video? Its all clean vocals, just for you
Anyway, I really love it when you combine the very symphonic and classical female vocals, with very brutal male ones. Although I've never found any other band that did it except Nightwish (and they never do it enough), and one of my favorites Haggard (which I may go make a thread on now, because they are amazing).
I'm definitely gonna give these guys a listen because its the 2nd time I've heard of them today.
EDIT: I just listened to both, and well I'm pretty sure I'm really gonna like these guys, the second video has the most bad-*** drums in the beginning, pretty much gave me a hard-on (too much?)
I love MOONSPELL! Ive got a couple of their albums and looking for more. LG I know where your coming from..."The cookie monster " appears on later albums and like you put me off the band a bit. [ .... such a fine line sometimes between gothic and gothic metal !!] Earlier MOONSPELL remind me so much of my old band 13 CANDLES...I Love this MOONSPELL track...
Great stuff b.o.b !! Which albums do you recomend? The last one I bought was " the antidote" in 2003..... Its not a bad album at all, quite heavy , but a bit "growly" at times.....I preferred the "sin/pecado" album which was more TYPO NEGATIVE sounding. Im just geussing a bit but ....I bet that the 1st album was black metal.?.just by the logo
Indeed Wolfheart was considered black metal. But black metal with some folk influences. It is still a cult album for me although some songs reveal the lack of experience. Their big success, my favorite and the album that made them well known is Irreligious from 1996.

A big step ahead on the path of gothic metal. For me it is a milestone album for this metal genre. Dark atmospheric keyboards with strong and melodic choruses. Fernando Ribeiro alias Langsuyar has a great dark powerful voice and on this album the clean haunting voice passages are overwhelming.
