MOONSPELL Celebrate 20th Anniversary Of “The Antidote”

MOONSPELL Celebrate 20th Anniversary Of “The Antidote”

9th August 2023 0 By Jon Deaux

Originally released by Century Media back in 2003, The Antidote is yet anotherĀ MoonspellĀ album that drifted off the paths of the trendy symphonic metal that dominated the scene at the time.Ā Itā€™s a record that laughed at the softening powers in power metal that began poisoning the scene 20 years ago. Thusā€¦ it has been, again, misunderstood by the fans and the press alike.


That didnā€™t stopĀ The AntidoteĀ from becoming a long ago out of print, sold-out record and an unnamed classic in its own right. To properly celebrateĀ itsĀ two decades of life,Ā TheĀ AntidoteĀ will be re-released via Napalm Records onĀ September 29, 2023, under exclusive licensing from Century Media! Exactly 20 years after its original release,Ā MoonspellĀ will once again bring you the fear and the intimidation of anĀ album inspired by what we dread: our darkest dreams and bleak crossroads. Itā€™s a tribal, ritualistic album, devoid of the plastic, business-like beauty of what became gothic metal along the way.

An album that scares the hell out of you and wraps you in the truth of darkness.

An album that is also a book by Jose Luis Peixoto, one of Portugalā€™s most celebrated authors, and that opens traps beneath your feet and holes within your mind – a work that is not for the faint of heart.

Hereā€™s your second chance to own it and to claim the consternation inside of you. The Antidote, in its cup, is yours to take – if only you could dareā€¦


The Antidote will be available as CD Digipak, LP Gatefold Vinyl editions, and a highly collectible, limited Deluxe Earbook on September 29th, pre-order this must-have MOONSPELL classic HERE!
