Moonspell will enter studio first weeks of July in order to record a very special project. The recording sessions will be held at the Denmark's finest Antfarm Studios. Behind the wheel of death will be Tue Madsen (The Haunted, Dark Tranquillity, Rob Halford), co-producing with the band. This release will consist of re-recordings of the band's legendary Under the Moonspell (1994) but also going back as far as their first demo Anno SatanÆ and their sole track as Morbid God, Serpent Angel. All the songs will be re-arranged and revamped in order to underline their revered distinction as Underground classics but now with a mature dark energy and class. The full-length record (8 songs and around 5 instrumental compositions) will be released in early October (2007) via SPV worldwide.

Tracklist: (not the final order)

Halla alle halla al rabka halla (Praeludium/Incantatum Solistitium)
Tenebrarum Oratorium (Andamento I/Erudit Compendyum)
Interludium/Incantatum Oequinoctum
Tenebrarum Oratorium (Andamento II/Erotic Compendyum)
Opus Diabolicum (Andamento III/Instrumental Compendyum)
Chorai Lusitânia! (Epilogus/Incantatam Maresia)
Goat on Fire
Ancient Winter Goddess
Wolves From The Fog
Serpent Angel

In the process is also the composition of the follow up to Memorial which will go into production before the end of the year at the Woodhouse Studios with Waldemar Sorychta.

A Best of Moonspell entitled The Great Silver Eye, released through Century Media, will be hitting the stores in July.

Brilliant news.. Memorial was close to my favourite album of 2006. Can't wait to hear what they follow it up with. And this re-recording should be highly interesting. Can't wait

This will either turn out good, or really bad. It's always a hit or miss when bands do something like this.
Dead Ohlin - 04.07.2007 at 23:07  
What happening to their DVD ?
Bleeding_Rainbow - 05.07.2007 at 20:29  
Word Dead Ohlin, didn't they have one announced?
Dark Forever - 05.07.2007 at 23:52  
Well, they have an edition of the album Memorial with a bonus DVD with live tracks, videos and photos. If they announced any other DVD, I don't know anything about it...

fuck fuck fuck . ..... i'm crazy about UNDER THE MOONSPELL. i love it.
Passenger - 06.07.2007 at 15:43  
Great news, I'm really glad they're doing this, great gift for the fans.

Moonspell did have a DVD planned for quite some time, but I heard they wanted to include so much that it was going to be difficult to do one exactly as the band wants, so the idea is on hold.

Halla alle halla al rabka halla ...ya halla we sahlla lol

haillllllllllllll moonspell we all crazy about UNDER THE MOONSPELL

New release "Under Satanae" is, in my opinion, THE BEST 2007 album!!! They caught the spirit present in their first demos/EPs and played it with their actual skills... The production is also GREAT!!!
