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 band offers up long and complex tracks, but still surprisingly simple and compelling. Abundance of tempo changes and variations which surround the album bask in emotionally charged, progressive yet utterly melodic slower-sections, addictive enough to stimulate the imagination.
THE MOTH GATHERER is recommended for fans of Neurosis, Breach and Cult of Luna.
The band is: Alex Stjernfeldt, Victor Wegeborn (who both handle: guitars, bass, electronics, vocals and drums) and Svante Karlsson (guitars, drums).
Band's debut album "A Bright Celestial Light" was released in 2013. "In the end of the day this is an album that encompasses what I consider to be all the virtues of extreme experimental music of the past few years, sounding heavy (listen to the epic beginning of “The Womb, The Woe, The Woman”), experimenting with different influences across the board and transferring different emotions to the recipient, just to name a few. If you believe that all of the above appeal to you then Moth Gatherer will be an unforgettable experience. I am really eager to see where the band is going to take it from here" - comments Cvlt Nation.
