Unexpaix The Moth Gatherer really astonished me with this record. I am a long time fan of Cult of Luna and have rarely heard a group that made me feel the way CoL does. Even though they felt familiar that way, they bring their own distinct song writing and mixture of soundscapes. This record is hard hitting and still makes space for moments that wrap its listeners in a mix of sounds that makes one feel as though they are floating. Worth supporting! Favorite track: Attacus Atlas.

Stijn Van Hees Very good atmospheric DOOM/sludge in the ISIS vein. Especially the grand finale of the last 2 tracks is very engrossing and well executed. If you're into Cult Of Luna, ISIS, etc. don't pass this up. Favorite track: The Black Antlers.

Most of the time I listen to certain things depending on my mood but The Earth Is the Sky fits me always, anytime and especially before going to sleep as it fills my dreams with emotions and make me think about the preciousness of life. This Album is huge. Favorite track: Attacus Atlas.

Patrik Olsson Heavy, slow, atmospheric and beautiful. But much more of post metal than doom, although that's irrelevant as long as they deliver stuff like this.

about

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.

"The Earth Is The Sky" features some notable guests, including: David Johansson from Kongh, Wacian from Code, The Cuckoo from Terra Tenebrosa as well as Thomas Jäger from Monolord.

The album was recorded over a period of two years in three different studios and mixed & mastered by Karl Daniel Lidén (Dozer, The Old Wind, Switchblade, Terra Tenebrosa). The artwork and layout has been made by SCG, while Swedish painter, EJG, created an exclusive painting for each of the six tracks the album features.

THE MOTH GATHERER had its debut festival appearance at Devilstone in June, 2015. The band is recommended for fans of: Neurosis, Breach, Russian Circles, Mastodon, Cult of Luna, Kongh, Terra Tenenbrosa and similar.
