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.

To just say that Amalie flawlessly weaves metal, goth, Medieval folk, and Norse eddas, while deftly wielding a vast array of both modern and archaic instruments (overlaid with her Valkyrie voice), would be dramatically understating this album. It is, start to finish, an incredibly powerful, violent, yet empathic tour-de-force like you will hear nowhere else. It is a masterpiece. If this sorceress doesn't put a spell on your heart, you have no heart. Oh, yeah, and Chelsea Wolfe appears on it. wulfmusik
