PROG REVIEWER
3 stars Boy, I love this album. It reminds of good ol' days of my youth, when I worshiped Gothic and Doom Metal, days when I played in a Doom/Death band, days when everything seemed so fresh and intriguing. Ribeiro's accented voice was so sincere, and songs like 'Full Moon Madness', 'Awake' or 'Mephisto' were so good, so powerful, filled with dark energy. I still listen to them from time to time, and the whole album is one of MOONSPELL's best, even yet good, a lil' bit out of fashion now, but a real revolution back in those times. A Must for every Gothic Doom Metal fan and a nice addition to almost any Metalhead collection, 'Irreligious' has little to offer to most Prognerds around, but I love it still. Nostalgia is the strongest feeling in every person's life, you know ;) 2.5 on Prog scale, 4 on personal one, 3 for PA as a result. Recommended anyway!

4 stars No doubt, one of the most awsome albums ever in the metal field, and one of my fav albums either. Great goth - symph sound with a lot of metal twists with dark tendencies. For me the best track is Ruin and mysery, just a great piece of metal with great vocals, and the main track from this album Opium, the rest are also good. So 4 stars for this great album, maybe their best so far, and far more better than the previous who was more black metal and better than the next ones who is more mainstream and polished.

3 stars Irreligious is the second full-length studio album by Portuguese goth/ doom metal act Moonspell. The album was produced by Waldemar Sorychta and released through Century Media Records in 1996.

While there are still hints of Moonspellīs black metal past on Irreligious the music on the album is largely a departure from that sound. The goth rock/ metal elements that were already present on the debut album Wolfheart (1995) are much more pronounced on this album. The closest musical reference is probably goth/ doom metal act Paradise Lost ( from One Second (1997) onward) but Moonspell definitely have their own sound. Goth rock bands from the eighties like Sisters of Mercy and The Mission also comes to mind more than one time during the 42:39 minute long playing time.

The vocals are deep and occasionally semi growling with an obvious accent which in this case actually gives the music an exotic twist. It could have been a problem but isnīt. There are lots of keyboards in the music and they work to create a dark atmosphere. The guitar, bass and drums are good but nothing special IMO. They work well to create a whole though. But this is not the kind of music where you should go to seek technical musical challenges. There are plenty of dark goth atmosphere here so if thatīs to your taste this album will certainly deliver.

The production is warm and professional.

Irreligious is the logical successor to Wolfheart IMO. A more mature and coherent album than its predecessor. 3 stars is deserved.

Review by Warthur
PROG REVIEWER
4 stars On this second album Moonspell seem to dial back the black metal and folk influences which had made their debut such an interesting cocktail and instead choose to focus on gothic metal with some symphonic flourishes. In most cases, I'd be bewailing the fact that their sound had shifted from something unique to something a little more generic, but the album is saved by the fact that Moonspell are actually damn good at the gothic metal game and are able to deliver a solid and enjoyable album in this style. Just don't expect another Wolfheart going in, because I honestly don't think we're going to get one of those.
