Dupa o pauza de patru ani, formatia portugheza Moonspell va lansa pe 26 februarie 2021, noul album intitulat “Hermitage“. Acesta este distribuit sub egida Napalm Record iar primul videoclip de promovare, regizat de Guilherme Henriques (Gaerea, Crippled Black Phoenix, Schammasch), este “The Greater Good“.
“Hermitage” a fost inregistrat, mixat si masterizat de Jaime Gomez (Paradise Lost, Primordial, Ghost, Sólstafir) in Orgone Studios din Marea Britanie.
Fernando Ribeiro a declarat: “The Greater Good” is a sociological concept implying the benefit of the public, of more people than oneself. To do which is better and more correct. Unfortunately, a lot of wrong- doing and pure evil actions were taken on behalf of this principle both by world leaders, and citizens. With a “screenplay” designed by myself, and put together by director Guilherme Henriques. The Greater Good strikes at the deep contrast of our priorities as human beings. The plot evidentiate the daily clash between the problems we could never or never wanted to solve; and our ‘first world preoccupations. The cult of the body versus the African famine; the killing of the innocent versus the second amendment; the beauty of monuments against the ugliness of violence.
We are all responsible for the things we see here. For the greater good, for the greatest evil. It’s not a question of race, gender, class or education. It’s a question of conscience. It’s vital we renew our communities’ ties, our humanly behavior. Only we can save us from ourselves.”
