Reminds me alot of His Infernal Majesty

Eh, HIM is dark/gothic rock and Moonspell is an actual gothic/black metal band with a vocalist that doesn't try to drown out their band mates incessant ineptitude. Although going purely from the posted video, you're not wrong (for the record, I like HIM :p).

Moonspell does have a lot of more experimental stuff too. They probably have an album for everyone.

edit:

Well look at Moonspell releasing new stuff that basically proves me wrong. Haha.

 

Yeah, this is HIM 2.0 all right. :p

Haha! I never really got into HIM myself, but my friends were, I got some real flashbacks to the last years of school 😂

That's more like it :)

Civilization, in fact, grows more and more maudlin and hysterical; especially under democracy it tends to degenerate into a mere combat of crazes; the whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary. - H.L. Mencken

Could never make sense of these subgenres of metal.

Why has elegance found so little following? Elegance has the disadvantage that hard work is needed to achieve it and a good education to appreciate it. - Edsger Wybe Dijkstra

That's a shame really, she was cool as ****.

But GOOD NEWS, I've found something better!

Good thing it wasn't "Study the blade".  Else lots of neckbeards would love this.

Everything wrong with metal condensed into one epic experience:

 

Biggest vocal disconnect from the images on screen ever. Impressive falsetto... I think, for a moment I thought he was just dubbed by a woman. Much to my surprise also not a cover of an 80ies pop song. Heh.

edit:

Yep. I'm loving this. 😄

Hey, don't knock 80-ties pop songs. Nor 70-ties. :getlost:

 

Secret of the Runes was one of the first Metal albums I ever bought.

I wonder where it is... >_>'

I know where mine is, but it's telling that the best song on it was an ABBA cover. 😆

edit: Not saying I don't like Therion, 's just that their earlier stuff is better than Secret of the Runes. Or anything else that came after it. I've tried to like Lemuria and Sirius-B for instance, but... I don't think it's going to happen.

Oh, and I'm not knocking 80ies metal covers, they're awesome.

I remember listening alot to Nordman when I was really young, I never knew anyone had made covers of them, and now I learn that both Blackmores Night (Journeyman) and Ensiferum has done so

On a scale from "extremely" to "unimaginably", just how much does this song rock? Dear god, how do they keep a straight face playing this? :p
