The Moth Gatherer Posts Lyric Video

Swedish atmospheric doom / sludge post-rock mavericks The Moth Gatherer just released a lyric video for new song, "Attacus Atlas."

The song is a part of the band's forthcoming album, "The Earth Is The Sky," set to be released on November 27, 2015 via Agonia Records. Commented by the band:

"'The Earth Is The Sky' is an album where we tried to take everything as far as we could. There where points during the recording where we honestly spoke about giving up and calling it a day, it felt like we would crumble under the album. But we suffered through.

"The result is a desperation about how humanity drags it all to the end. Where A Bright Celestial Light was an introvert journey into decay, 'The Earth Is The Sky' is a journey to the highest point on Earth where you sit down and contemplate about our existence while watching the flames from the burning world."

The Moth Gatherer Signs With Agonia Records

Sweden's The Moth Gatherer has inked a deal with Agonia Records. The band's debut album is slated for an April 2013 release, and a short and unmastered preview of the album can be heard below. The following press release was also issued about the band:

"The Moth Gatherer's music is hard to label, due to the band's non-one-dimensional approach towards the songs they create; the hardcore/experimental/progressive etiquette seems almost too laconic to fully do justice to the spirit of the compositions. The debut offers up long and complex tracks, but still surprisingly simple and compelling. Abundance of tempo changes and variations that surround the album bask in emotionally charged, progressive yet utterly melodic slower sections, addictive enough to stimulate the imagination."

"We just want our music to be an emotional explosion," comments co-founder Alex. "A lot of the songs are about death, missing people you loved who have passed away and losing hope in mankind. We want the music to make you feel like you can move mountains with it. I wish for that when people hear our music, they start to dream away."

The band is: Alex Stjernfeldt and Victor Wegeborn who both handle: guitars, bass, electronics, vocals, and drums. More...
