1755 marks the year of the horror when a giant earthquake destroyed the city of Lisbon. Almost 100.000 souls lost their lifes, and this tragic event still belongs to one of the disastrous catastrophes in European history and nature. 2017 and in remembrance of the victims and the band's hometown, will mark the year of MOONSPELL's new album titled '1755', the 13rd studio record by the portuguese Dark Metal pioneers, which will see the light of day on November 3rd with Napalm Records.

From the first second, the conceptual dramaturgy of MOONSPELL's new album feels like a detonation of the mind. Playful and mean-spirited. '1755' is their magnum opus, a musical masterpiece and the dark adventure into medieval times. Produced by Tue Madsen ( (Meshuggah, The Haunted, Dark Tranquility, Dir En Grey, Die Apokalyptischen Reiter ), naturally this album is sang completely in portuguese and will outclass all standards you have ever heard from MOONSPELL before!

Says the band: “So, the day is almost here. Nobody expected we would release an album so soon but 1755 gripped us to the point where we changed everything and dedicated ourselves into telling this amazing story on our new album. Our job is done, now we will take it upon the road as headliners in Portugal and Spain in October and November and a special guest to our fiends Cradle of Filth next year. Festivals are also being booked. Now it’s turn to listen with an open mind to our new opus and decide if you want to take the travel into a dark day that brought our country, Portugal a brighter future.”
