13/Oct/2016 THE MOTH GATHERER PREMIERE NEW MUSIC VIDEO

Swedish atmospheric post-rock/doom metal visionaries with ambient and electronic fangs, THE MOTH GATHERER, premiere a new music video for the song "Probing The Descent Of Man", taken from their last year's album "The Earth Is The Sky" released on Agonia Records. Watch the video at:

The video was directed by Albin SkĂśld (Illusive Illustration) and recorded at the band's rehearsal space in Sweden earlier this year.

"The Earth Is The Sky" was recorded over a period of two years in three different studios. Mixing & mastering duties were taken care of by Karl Daniel LidĂŠn (Dozer, The Old Wind, Switchblade, Terra Tenebrosa). The artwork was made by SCG, while Swedish printer EJG prepared the layout, creating an exclusive painting for each of the six tracks appearing on the album.

Two opening songs off the record, "Pale Explosions" and "Attacus Atlas", were featured on BBC Radio 1 playlists.

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 (debut album) 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 Earth Is The Sky" album features notable guests, including: David Johansson (Kongh), Wacian (Code), The Cuukoo (Terra Tenebrosa) and Thomas Jäger (Monolord). It's available in CD, LP and digital formats.

Line-up:
Alex Stjernfeldt: Vocals & Bass
Victor Wegeborn: Vocals, Guitars & Electronics
Svante Karlsson: Drums
Ronny Westphal: Guitars
