SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Prog Metal Team
3 stars I've never been in the ban of Moonspell. Somehow this band never convinced me of their acclaimed gothic death metal pioneering status. Judging by this album and the two that preceded it, I would rate them as a competent 90's metal band in a field dominated by superior and more adventurous artist like Tiamat, Paradise Lost and Amorphis. Maybe I haven't heard the albums yet that really matter.

I don't think this album fits here very well, but judged by its own merits, Of Darkness and Hope is an unremarkable but still competent album with a mix of average and really good songs in this style.

Highlights are the upbeat Sisters of Mercy on steroids of Firewalking, Devilred and The Serpents in My Hands. Also the more commercial but enchanting Nocturna is worth a spin, Ribeiro brings a deep warm baritone but it sure doesn't lick the heels of Joy Division's Ian Curtis. Rapaces is probably the best track. It has a number of recognizable Killing Joke elements such as the chord picking and the chorus effects in the verses. Also the stark drum & bass interplay is a typical feature.

Os Senhores Da Guerra is a fine Madredeus cover that shows how much better this album could have been, had it been sung in Portuguese. It gives the band more character. Besides, there's nothing above singing in your mother tongue, simply because it is usually the only language where you instinctively feel the inherent melodious power and the rhythmic flow of the words.

Yes, English is largely overrated :)

3 stars It is somewhat complicated the presence of this band here. The criterion of "Prog" the band goes away but in their general content the band is a highlight. "Darkness and Hope" is different from the earlier "The Butterfly Effect (1999)" and its successor "The Antidote (2003). The fact of the band sw ... (read more)

1 stars This album isn't even a good one. This album isn't even an average one. This album absolutely SUCKS, in every sense of the word, this probably is the worst Moonspell record I have ever heard and one of the worst metal pieces I've ever came across. Anyways, let's stop with this kind of stupid ... (read more)
