Fernando Ribeiro / Moonspell: Purgatorial – Poetry 2001-2012
Alma Mater Books
“Poetry is for pussies…” is not the way to start a conversation with Moonspell frontman Fernando Ribeiro, the author of Purgatorial.
He’s been publishing dark and doom-laden verse in his native Portuguese for almost 20 years and Purgatorial marks his first foray into putting his art out in English. Initially marketed as a translation of his works, Ribeiro admits Purgatorial features re-worked poems and passages from his four volumes of work rather than “simple” renovations.
