Originally released in 2001 and celebrating it's 20th anniversary this year, MOONSPELL's fifth album, Darkness And Hope, caught the band in a strange crossroad upon it's debut. Their first four records saw them skyrocketing from Portugal into Gothic Metal stardom, yet their almost violent musical swings left a lot of their fans confused and unaware of what to expect next. Nonetheless, Darkness and Hope was the ticket for many followers of the band to continue their journey with the Portuguese wolves. The reconciliatory album, lost in between the light and the shadow, included amazing melancholic anthems such as 'Nocturna', 'How We Became Fire' and 'Than The Serpents In My Arms' - not to mention the inclusion of tracks delivering MOONSPELL's very own brand of infectious gothic metal like classics 'Firewalking' or 'Devilred'!" Darkness And Hope is such a representative title for that period in our personal lives and also as musicians, as a band," Fernando Ribeiro reveals. "We were astray and this album made us find our way again into our songs, our darkness, our will to play music together for many years to come. We had a hard time, after an album so experimental like The Butterfly Effect, to make our peace with Darkness and Hope. We were depressed and extremely sad when we went to Finland to do this album and by making it, we raised our heads again and since then never gave up the fight for our fans' hearts and souls. Moonspell might be darkness but for sure we are hope too." Gone out of print and sold out for many years

All New Items on flyvintageandvinyl.com are Priced Below MSRP
and do not reflect our in-store prices and are not necessarily in stock at our physical store.
In fact, most items won’t be because we’re a small, family run business and don’t have space to stock nearly 500,000 new titles.

Separate Shopping Carts for New and Used Items
Because new items available on flyvintageandvinyl.com are fulfilled by our distributor and used items available on used.flyvintageandvinyl.com
(via the “Buy Used” button above) are fulfilled by us at our physical store, they require separate shopping carts and checkout procedures.
It’s a minor inconvenience, but we’ll try to make it worth your while with our selection, ultrasonic-cleaned used records and competitive prices.
Shipping within the U.S. is $5 for the first LP plus 50¢ for each additional LP via USPS Media Mail.

A Note About Pre-Orders
Orders containing both pre-orders and “Available to Order” items from flyvintageandvinyl.com will be shipped in one package when the pre-order title(s) is/are released.

International Orders, Box Sets and Larger Items
may incur an additional shipping fee and we’ll notify you by email before we process your order. Customs forms for international orders are marked as "Merchandise"
and we are not responsible for any additional customs fees when packages arrive at their destination country. Select items aren't allowed to be shipped outside the U.S.
and we’ll issue a refund for these if export restrictions apply. We reserve the right to limit quantities on select items.
