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...
