The Moth Gatherer: The Earth Is The Sky
Adventurous Swedes push the post-metal envelope
Playing light against dark is The Moth Gatherer’s forte, and for this Swedish trio and their second full-length, the marriage of bombastic sounds and passages of serenity is one that works in harmonious synchronisation.
Pale Explosions starts The Earth Is The Sky on gothic beats and soon swerves into a doomed, post-metal landscape that echoes its title and works towards creating an atmosphere not unlike genre masters Cult Of Luna. Attacus Atlas twists with electronic flourishes that push the track upwards from sludgy, hardcore sounds and into new realms of sonic beauty.
