Post-metal outfit The Moth Gatherer have premiered their new full-length, The Earth is the Sky, at Metal Hammer. The album is officially out today via Agonia Records and can be purchased at this location. The band commented on their new effort:
“The Earth Is The Sky is an album where we tried to take everything as far as we could. There where points during the recording where we honestly spoke about giving up and calling it a day, it felt like we would crumble under the album. But we suffered through. The result is a desperation about how humanity drags it all to the end. Where A Bright Celestial Light was an introvert journey into decay, The Earth Is The Sky is a journey to the highest point on Earth where you sit down and contemplate about our existence while watching the flames from the burning world”.

The 7″ featured a storming new number titled “Elohim” and a re-recording of an early track titled “An Dagda Awakens”. Guitarist Ade Mulgrew comments on the re-recording:
“Since it’s almost 10 years since myself and Sarah started playing guitar together, we decided to revisit one of the first songs we wrote, ‘An Dagda Awakens’. Written with the fiery energy (and perhaps naivety) of teenage metalheads making their first steps on their journey, we have breathed smoke and ashes into this old song and brought it screaming into the darkness.”
