New vinyls for Record store day

Label Alma Mater Records released two vinyls for Record store day, one is 2LP Night Eternal and second is single Scorpion Flower.

Night Eternal

Fernando’s comment:

It’s been more than ten years since its original release but this one it’s still  very deeply representative of what MOONSPELL is. Besides, it does  sounds actual and it’s a hard find in the market. Owning the rights to the álbum, we decide to use them, to improve the edition and to bring you almost like a Night Eternal’s director cut, which we hope that can bring great memories or great findings your way.
Properly remastered and with the full tracklist of ALL songs we wrote and recorded for this album (including Age of Mothers, Earth of mine and Unhearted), ALMA MATER RECORDS is proud to bring yet another MOONSPELL title home and of course wishes to thank you for keep on collecting our releases. Regardless of the time that keeps running from us so fast and so slippery, music keeps us in timeless company, as eternal as the night, as if in a spring of rage, first light of our day.

Scorpion Flower

Fernando’s comment:

MOONSPELL has always tried to be about the songs we write. We never wanted to reinvent the wheel. We were never seen ourslelves as progressive or groundbreaking. That ism for us, of little interest when compared with the chance of   songwriting and  form a solid body of music with the songs you wrote and decided for an album.
Scorpion Flower is one of our songs that was mostly and  carefully crafted as a jewel. It’s the most melodic song of a quite in your face album and people say it’s beautiful. Female singers want to join us on stage to sing that song, girls feel the sting of the scorpion, and guys to get smell the flowers and that’s what a song is for: to leave an impression.
Any text about Scorpion Flower wouldn’t be completed without a reference to the “original female singer” Anneke V.Giersbergen who paved the way for those who followed. We wanted the original and she came down with a smile and left us with maybe one of her most memorable vocal contributions to a song.
The importance of this song as center piece in the divide of our carrer, as we left Century Media and joined SPV ranks, is now fully complete with the release of this single. Thank you so much and let us steal your mind for a while.
