On October 7th, 2016 an immortal Century Media Records classic, the Gothic metal masterpiece Irreligious by MOONSPELL returns on vinyl for the first time since its original release back in 1996!

In cooperation with the band, Century Media Records decided to re-visit the band's quintessential 1996 album Irreligious as original vinyl editions have been hard to find and are very expensive nowadays. This 20th anniversary edition includes various additional treats that should make it a real highlight for all the band's new and old fans worldwide.

Irreligious comes housed in a wide spine LP sleeve including the 180 gram vinyl with the album mastered for vinyl by Patrick W. Engel (ICED EARTH, TIAMAT, GRAVE), the entire album on CD, a 4-page LP-sized booklet with an introduction and commented live and promo photos by Fernando Ribeiro plus all lyrics. Apart from that, a replica of an original 1996 promotional poster was added resulting in the ultimate edition of this masterpiece!

MOONSPELL comments: "None of us really thought it through. The possibility of being years, twenty years after, celebrating an album and, why the hell not, a decade of great music, fusion, experiment, freedom. Irreligious will always be our highlight, our piece-de-resistance. Not that the other albums were mistakes in any form. Just that we are still sure that with Irreligious we helped shape a style, a new thing in underground metal, something European, classic and mystical, a beautiful beast, laid to birth after an eternal night of passion and doom between metal and goth. We will be playing some twenty years shows on selected dates in Europe and Portugal. Come vista the wolves! And ...finally thanks to the good chaps of CM we will be releasing the Opium maxi for the first time ever on vinyl (out November 25th)! So plenty of reasons to be celebrating with us, because when you celebrate music you celebrate life, a value which was never so fragile but also so precious as today in a world that has never learnt how to get rid of religion. So, consequently embrace better values, avoid terror and choose beauty over it."

Irreligious will be released in the following vinyl colors and limitations:

  • Black - not limited, available worldwide
  • Transparent Red - 100 units, exclusive to Century Media's European webstore: www.cmdistro.com

MOONSPELL are Portugal's most prominent metal act and are still highly successful these days! When Irreligious was released back in 1996, it probably left the whole metal scene awestruck. The black metal feeling of Wolfheart was more or less gone. Instead of taking the next logical step towards brutality and grimness, MOONSPELL took a turn to the side and offered eleven songs of beautiful melodies, bewitching lyrics and majestic gloom. Be it Opium, Raven Claws, Mephisto or the monolithic Full Moon Madness, every single song on Irreligious was and still is a proof of why MOONSPELL achieved massive success with this album and beyond.
