Songs: Wolfshade (A Werewolf Masquerade) by Moonspell

Taking a short break from the accounts of werewolf trials, here is a song, one of many more to come, that fans of the Portuguese metal band Moonspell know all too well. Coming from the 1995 album Wolfheart, Wolfshade (A Werewolf Masquerade) over the years has become a cult classic. Not only this song, but the whole album, revolves around the themes of lycanthropy and vampirism and is a very interesting listen. It's also not the only werewolf song in Moonspell's musical history, other such tracks being, for example, Full Moon Madness from their 1996 album Irreligious.

Wolfshade (A Werewolf Masquerade)

She brought the night, hidden in her sad wolf eyes
The perfume of a twilight, her strongest scent
Half-wolf, half-female - what a strange wedding
Mother nature has offered us to see...

Her mask lays lost in the fatal dawn
Closed were the eyes of the sun. He sleeps.
And in the name of her father
She will kill. My child kills.

Your nightly birth. A requiem god can't forget
For your life is just a celebration of his death
Without his thorns in her heart, she wears a shadow as face
A werewolf masquerade. In her eyes the wolfshade.

She brought the night and by the night was brought
We are but children of the powers she had set free
Strange are the ways of the wolfhearted...
