The Womb, The Woe, The Woman is the second track unveiled from the band’s upcoming debut album entitled A Bright Celestial Light via Agonia Records. The album will hit the shops worldwide on April 16. The first song can be listened to at this location:


A Bright Celestial Light was mastered by Karl Daniel Liden (Terra Tenebrosa, Grammy nominated Switchblade album) and will feature a guest appearance from Member 001 of The Konsortium fame. The tracklist (5 original tracks, 44 minutes of playing time) is as follows:

1. The Water That We All Come To Need
2. Intervention
3. A Road of Gravel and Skulls
4. The Womb, The Woe, The Woman
5. A Falling Deity

THE MOTH GATHERER’s music is hard to label, due to band’s non-one-dimensional approach towards the songs they create; the Experimental/Progressive etiquette seems almost too laconic to fully do justice to the spirit of the compositions. The debut offers up long and complex tracks, but still surprisingly simple and compelling. Abundance of tempo changes and variations that surround the album bask in emotionally charged, progressive yet utterly melodic slower-sections, addictive enough to stimulate the imagination.

The band is recommended for fans of Neurosis, Breach, Pelican and Cult of Luna.
