MOONSPELL on "Ultima Ratio Fest" tour with MY DYING BRIDE, BORKNAGAR, WOLFHEART & HINAYANA!
As is well known, anticipation is the best joy: Fans of cultivated dark metal should therefore already mark the autumn of 2022 firmly in their calendars: On 05.10.2022 the Portuguese Gothic Metal pioneers MOONSPELL will stop at the Z7 in Pratteln on their extended European tour - at the same time they will celebrate their 30th anniversary! With My Dying Bride, Borknagar, Wolfheart and Hinayana they have a more than top-class tour package in their luggage!
Already since their beginnings, the cult band around frontman Fernando Ribeiro has heavily influenced the dark metal scene. Their roots are in Black Metal, but MOONSPELL quickly established their very own sound character, which they have now enriched with very progressive elements. Their tendency towards theatricality, their dark and occult orchestral sound atmosphere as well as captivating melodies are legendary. Founded at the end of the 80s, MOONSPELL have lost nothing of their topicality to this day: their current album "Hermitage" went straight to number 19 in the German charts this year!
With My Dying Bride, one of the doom metal bands par excellence joins the line up. Together with Paradise Lost and Anathema, the Brits from Halifax are considered one of the Big Three who made the genre popular in the 90s. On tour, however, the formation could be seen only extremely rarely - in this respect, the "Ultima Ratio" tour offers one of THE opportunities to experience My Dying Bride and their latest album "The Ghost Of Orion" live!
The Progressive Black Metallers from Borknagar are not an unknown quantity either. The formation, founded in 1995, is made up of members of Enslaved, Immortal, Gorgoroth and Ulver, among others. Hardly any other formation has developed classic black metal with as much musical savvy as the Norwegians.
And although the Finns of Wolfheart have only been active since 2013, they were already able to make a name for themselves with their doomy-melodic sound. With their last album "Wolfes Of Karelia" they even made it to number 8 in the charts. The melodic death metal newcomers Hinayana round off a first-class tour package: The band from Texas made a name for themselves for the first time with their 2018 debut and with their last output, "Death Of The Cosmic", could fully prove to be a solid bench of finest US death metal!
