Portuguese gothic metal band MOONSPELL have newly premiered a live video for their track “Apophthegmata“. The footage comes from a May 7th, 2021 live set the band played at the Grutas de Mira D’Aire in Mira de Aire, Portugal. That particular show saw the group perform their 2021 album “Hermitage” in its entirety. The entire set will be released this Friday, September 30th as “From Down Below – Live 80 Meters Deep“.
Vocalist Fernando Ribeiro commented:
“‘Apophthegmata‘ is a Greek word that defines a collection of texts, a book with the most important lessons and revelations of the Desert Fathers, the kings of Hermits. They stood in the darkness to enlighten themselves and often brought their conclusions of peace and wisdom to their restless and suffering communities.
This song stands for exactly that, musically speaking: a game of light and shadow, a bridge between fragility and strength. It quickly became a must on our setlist and a fan favorite of the ‘Hermitage‘ album. Enjoy the light, learn with the darkness, be kind to yourself so you can be kind to others.”
