Moonspell are less than three weeks away from their forthcoming album, 1755′s release, on November 3rd via Napalm Records. Last month, the group shared the lyric video to the new song “Todos Os Santos,” and recentlyy, they revealed another taste with the tune “Evento.”
Frontman Fernando Ribeiro commented about the track:
“‘Bury the dead. Take care of the living.’ Is one of the most famous quote of Marquis of Pombal (Sebastião José Carvalho e Melo), the minister of the King who together with the crowds of Lisbon and his engineers rebuilt a new Lisbon from the ashes and ruins of the old in just one year time. ‘Event’ talks about fate; a dialogue built between the narration of the day and the state of mind of Lisbon’s inhabitants and the all powerful choir, telling me to be still and accept God’s will. This conflict and the desacralisation of Lisbon is one of the most interesting aspects of this accursed day. A fight that allowed Portugal to step out finally from the Middle Ages and make the country’s entry into Enlightenment.”
