Bio

The Moon and the Nightspirit is a pagan-folk band from Hungary, brought to life in 2003 by Ágnes Tóth and Mihály Szabó. Since then they crafting a distinct artistic signature, reflected not only in their music but also in the unique visual universe that illustrates their work.

Ágnes, a skilled singer and multi-instrumentist, is also the talented lady responsible for the paintings which bring to The Moon and the Nightspirit’s music a fantasy-setting populated by creatures that trace back to traditional Hungarian legends and folklore. These memories of times forgotten also echo through the lyrics written by guitarist Mihály, which outline the spiritual mindset behind the project. From the beginning they wanted to be a full time band and play as many live shows as possible. To be able to do this the band completed by two permanent live members Gábor Végh and Gergely Cseh.

Such a combination has been greeted with growing enthusiasm since the release of their 2005 debut album on Equilibrium Music, “Of Dreams Forgotten and Fables Untold”, and the early shows that followed, which included an appearance on Hungarian National Television. Later, and in support of “Regõ Rejtem”, their second album, The Moon and the Nightspirit had the opportunity to tour throughout most of Europe. Playing in small fair markets and large festivals alike, including prestigious events such as Trolls et Legendes (Belgium), Wave-Gotik-Treffen (Germany) and Castle Party (Poland) and also invited to Castlefest in The Nederlanden this year. The band shared the stage with names like Corvus Corax, Faun, Omnia, Blackmore’s Night or Korpiklaani, and gradually conquered a prominent role in the Pagan/Folk scene.

Returning with “Ösforrás”, their third album, the duo invite the listener to the star-woven realm of the wise elders, the ones who knew the secrets of nature and walked the path of light eternal, and embody on their new material a more tribal and exotic approach, in intense rituals dedicated to the old and eternal tradition.

This collection of songs, which feed from the Ösforrás - the “Source Pristine”, the primordial womb, from which all has sprung, a sacred place where all is one - comes together as an offering to the slumbering gods of the old forests, streams and stones.

Weaving a web where threads of ancient mysticism combine with dreamy atmospheres, where World Music acquires a bewitching Pagan aura, The Moon and the Nightspirit live up to their potential as one of the most exciting and refreshing acts in the genre.
