Second album from Swedish atmospheric doom metallers, with strong sludge and post-rock influences. THE MOTH GATHERER took their time after "A Bright Celestial Light" - their warmly received debut album - was released in 2013. While the effort was immediately slated as a solid first step for a newcomer, the band quickly focused on their next chapter and devoted two years to perfect their vision. In return, "The Earth Is The Sky" feels more mature and multi-dimensional, with a breathtaking effect. Based on the formula of progressive riffs and twists through tempos, the album makes use of hypnotic passages mixed with tranquil moments and lusciously vibrant heaviness. On top of that, THE MOTH GATHERER continues to experiment with different influences and emotions, to invoke a galvanizing response. With guest appearance of David Johansson (Kongh); Wacian (Code); The Cuukoo (Terra Tenebrosa); Thomas Jäger (Monolord). Recorded, mixed & mastered by Karl Daniel Lidén (Dozer, The Old Wind, Switchblade, Terra Tenebrosa). For fans of Neurosis, Breach, Cult of Luna, Kongh, Terra Tenebrosa.
