I am reposting this since Blogger went down. I did not have this saved anywhere so I am doing it from scratch.
Moonspell has been a band that I have been listening to since I first started getting into extreme metal. The band is another one that has made frequent changes to their sound, starting out as a black metal band and then incorporating more and more gothic metal influences until they took over the sound. Later Moonspell reincorporated black metal influences to end up with the healthy mix they have now. Moonspell has always retained their dark and dreary sound and the band's major defining characteristic has always been Fernando Ribeiro's soulful baritone.
