Brand new EP from Sweden's sludge/doom metallers with post-rock tendencies & an electronic touch, The Moth Gatherer.
Sound-wise, "The Comfortable Low" is a nod towards the band's debut album, "A Bright Celestial Light" (2013), and a wink towards their hardcore and electronic side, with a guest appearence from Dennis Lyxzén (Refused/INVSN) and Fred Burman (Satan Takes A Holiday).
The Moth Gatherer commented: "After 'The Earth Is The Sky' (2015) we felt like we needed to push our limits while not forgetting our roots. Our roots in hardcore and our current interest in electronica made their mark on these two songs, a constant travel through harsh and beautiful soundscapes. The music and lyrics are supposed to feel like painful beauty and to provoke reflection. The themes revolve around an inner search, a way to rise while being pushed down by depression".
The new material was once again recorded with Karl Daniel Lidén behind the console and clothed with artwork prepared by SCG. "They both feel like an integral part of the The Moth Gatherer" - concluded the band.

Bloody Hell... This is spine tinglingly good. It's beautiful. It's peaceful and haunting. it could quite easily be music of Rivendell, and just as easy be the lament of a much loved warrior in Norse times.
I listened to other stuff but I find the metal music is offensive when accompanying an angelic voice. but this is perfect. Simon Blackwood
