The Moth Gatherer are a band from Sweden that plays a mixture of extreme metal, hardcore, progressive and experimental and this is a review of their 2013 album "A Bright Celestial Light" which was released by Agonia Records.
Drums range from slow to mid paced playing with no fast drumming or blast beats being present on this recording, while the sound effects and synths bring elements of ambient, experimental, industrial, and progressive to the recording, as for the bass playing it has a very strong and powerful sound with heavy and technical riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow to mid paced riffs that combine extreme metal, hardcore and progressive music together to create a sound of their with some of the riffing utilizing doom metal elements as well as some melody and clean playing and there are no guitar solos or leads present on this recording.
Vocals range from clean singing to aggressive sounding metal/hardcore screams as well as a brief use of deep growls, while the lyrics cover dark and depressing themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, dark, heavy and professional sound where yo can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording with the songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion The Moth Gatherer are a very great sounding hybrid of extreme metal, hardcore, experimental and progressive music and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band.
