Century Media 25th Anniversary Limited Edition with bonus CD

Portuguese writer José Luís Peixoto wrote a novel, O Antídoto (The Antidote in Portuguese) that came out at the same time as the album. They both share the same story and concept and each chapter of the book is meant to go with its corresponding song on the album. There was also a special edition included the book in electronic format.
The Antidote is already the seventh (or 6th?) album by the Portuguese band Moonspell and it's something really special on the basis that the lyrics and music are based on the works of a promising young Portuguese author named, José Luís Peixoto. It has never been easy to be a fan of Moospell because with every album they head into a different direction. But what happens on "The Antidote" should satisfy every fan because this album is just an enormous masterpiece of mind-crushing metal, dark melancholy and wonderful harmonies.

The Antidote starts off very brutal and ends very melodic and you can testify to that yourself when you take a listen. The first song "In And Above Men" is the heaviest track on the album with wall of guitars and a thick mood of devastating metal. And as I've mentioned the following songs are more melancholic and Fernando does a lot clean singing parts and rarely breaks out. For me there is a perfect mixture of dark depression and then sudden brutality and when he starts to scream, the crazy guitars do the rest. In the end the songs get more laid-back with a gothic touch.

For example "Lunar Still" features keyboard sounds and long-termed passages with sparse instrumental use and only whispers. To top it off, on the next track, "Crystal Gazing" they even rock straight ahead and the song still contains its own kind of melancholy. The last song, a seven-minute hymn of melody and harshness "As We Eternally Sleep On It" closes the latest chapter of Moonspell's sound journey. Hang on tight!
