This is a review of another recording from Portugal's Moonspell which showed the music going for more of a mixture of experimental, industrial, black, doom and goth metal and the album was originally released in 1999 and called "The Butterfly Effect" and was re-issued in 2020 by Napalm Records.
Programmed beats and electro-industrial elements start off the album along with some clean goth metal vocals a few seconds alter which also takes the music into a heavier direction. All of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them while black metal screams and death metal growls are also utilized at times.
The synths also gives the songs more of an atmospheric feeling while spoken word parts are also added into some parts of the recording. At times the music also gets very experimental sounding along with one track also introducing clean playing onto the album and touches of trip hop can also be heard briefly.
When percussion's are utilized they also give the songs more of a tribal feeling along with some blast beats also being added into the faster sections of the music. Noises and samples can also be heard on some of the tracks and as the album progresses the songs also get more diverse sounding. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover scientific chaos theory.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Moonspell and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this re-issue. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Soulsick" "Can't Bee' "I Am The Eternal Spectator" and "Tired". 8 out of 10.
