The Great Silver Eye Review

by Stewart Mason

Portuguese doom metal act Moonspell consistently delivers doomy goth metal with stentorian vocals that owe much to Bauhaus' Peter Murphy, symphonic keyboards in the Nightwish tradition, proggy extended arrangements, all-over basic black metal riffing and blastbeat drumming. It's all here on the compilation The Great Silver Eye. Epic blasts of growly doom like the nearly-eight-minute opener "Wolfshade (A Werewolf Masquerade)" and choral neo-prog like "Full Moon Madness" will not convince those with no predilection for the style, but the previously converted will be happy.
