Full Album Stream: The Moth Gatherer: A Bright Celestial Light – new album


Swedish experimental/progressive duo THE MOTH GATHERER, featuring Alex Stjernfeldt and Victor Wegeborn, prefer to speak through their music which is just fine by me, since due to their and their label's generosity we get to hear a whole lot of them. Their new debut album, ‘A Bright Celestial Light’ can be streamed in its highly emotional and unstoppable entirety (from its opening track ‘The Water That We All Come To Need’ to ‘Intervention’, ‘A Road Of Gravel And Skulls’, ‘The Womb, The Woe, The Woman’ to its closing tune ‘A Falling Deity’) here (SoundCloud) or below. THE MOTH GATHERER's debut full length is due on April 16th, 2013 in Europe and on April 30th, 2013 in North America on Agonia Records. Get your own copy of ‘A Bright Celestial Light’, available as a CD and as a LP, here (Agonia Records store):
“THE MOTH GATHERER's music is hard to label, due to the band's [multi-dimensional] approach towards the songs they create; the debut offers long and complex [yet] surprisingly simple and compelling tracks, abundance of tempo changes and variations that surround the album bask in a emotionally charged, progressive yet utterly melodic slower-sections, addictive enough to stimulate the imagination,” [the press release instructs]
“[CVLT Nation's reviewer recommends ‘A Bright Celestial Light’ to the fans of heavy experimental music:] With the inclusion of electronic elements to give a more psychedelic dimension to their music, something that is further [aided] by the ingenious use of synths, keyboards and various effects to build a daunting atmosphere, the album will remain unforgettable to anyone after the very first few minutes. What is even more intriguing is the emotional charge that comes [from within] the band's music, from the heavier cathartic moments of songs like ‘The Water That We All Come To Need’ to the melancholic lead guitar parts, for instance in ‘Intervention’, ‘A Bright Celestial Light’ transfers an extreme variety of emotions to the listener,” [- read the rest here:]
