Wolfheart is the debut studio album by Portuguese gothic metal band, Moonspell. All of the tracks are in English except for "Trebaruna" and "Ataegina", which are in Portuguese, as well as the chorus of "Alma Mater". The song "An Erotic Alchemy" is a duet, inspired by and quoting Marquis de Sade.[citation needed]

In July 2010 it was reported that Wolfheart will be represented in the form of an official stamp to be issued by the Portuguese Postal Service (CTT, Correios de Portugal) as part of a collection of stamps that represent the most significant rock moments and records from Portugal.[3]
