The Moth Gatherer

Profile:
Sludge/post-metal band from Sweden.

The Moth Gatherer was founded in Stockholm in 2009 by Victor Wegeborn and Alex Stjernfeldt. They started The Moth Gatherer as a sort of therapy, a way to deal with the loss of people they loved and the hole it left behind. The Moth Gatherer was a way for Alex and Victor to move on.
During 2009 and 2010 they explored their sound, and in mid 2010 they began recording what was to become their debut ”A Bright Celestial Light”. It contains 5 songs and 45 minute play time.
About the name ”The Moth Gatherer” Alex commented in an interview: ”We went through some personal tragedies and felt like we were lost in darkness and we fumbled towards a source of light, just like moths. So the name The Moth Gatherer felt kind of fitting for us.”
In april 2013 they released their debut "A Bright Celestial Light" through Agonia Records to critical acclaim. Many reviewers praising The Moth Gatherers ever evolving sound and atmospheric approach to songwriting.
The debut was mentioned in several "best of 2013"-lists, among Metal Mouth, Close-Up Magazine, Hellbound etc.
In late 2013, Svante Karlsson joined the band to complete the line-up and to bring a sonic groove to the drums.
