3 stars MOONSPELL swims between black-metal and gothic-metal waters in "Night Eternal".

The work of the band, originally a black-metal outfit, has become an hybrid of said genre with more commercial types of rock. This latest release starts strong, but loses steem towards the end. The best track in the album is "Dreamless (Lucifer and Lilith)", probably the most gothic one, very reminiscent of TIAMAT.

That MOONSPELL's best song is a more commercial-friendly one clearly shows how far the band has moved from its roots. When the group tries to play it black, the perfect production and the lack of crudeness and atmosphere don't allow the music to take off. The best song in the heavy side of the disc is the opener, "At tragic Heights".

Overall, the album is enjoyable but rather forgettable. It has its moments, but MOONSPELL has done better. And you can findway better works if you're looking for real black metal. For gothic-rock listeners, it may be too heavy a disc, but in the end it will work better.
