Debut album from Swedish Experimental/Progressive band THE MOTH GATHERER.
"A Bright Celestial Light" will consist of 5 original compositions with a total playing time of 44 minutes. The album has been mastered by Karl Daniel Liden (Terra Tenebrosa, grammy nominated Switchblade album) and will feature a guest appearance from Member 001 of The Konsortium fame.
THE MOTH GATHERER's music is hard to label, due to band's non-one-dimensional approach towards the songs they create; the 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 Alex, co-founder. "A lot of the songs is 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 MOTH GATHERER is recommended for fans of Neurosis, Breach, Isis, Pelican and Cult of Luna.
