Moonspell - Alma Mater (live at Wacken 2007)
Moonspell, probably my favourite Portuguese band, put on an amazing performance last year at Wacken Open Air, an annual festival that's basically like Meca for metalheads. Both bands and fans from all around the world go to the German town of Wacken for 3 days of pure fucking metal! About the Moonspell gig in particular, it was a pretty short one, with just 9 songs, but it was good one nevertheless. Included were 4 songs from the (then) new album (including the single Finisterra, but unfortunately my favourites Sanguine, Upon the Blood of Men and Luna were left out) and the classic Alma Mater, shown above, from their very first album, Wolfheart.
Fucking awesome song, this one is. Unfortunately that video doesn't make it justice, here's the album version in case anyone's interested, which I doubt, since my post about Dimmu Borgir's show (also at Wacken 2007) doesn't have a single comment...
