The Moth Gatherer - New Album Coming, Details Unveiled

Sweden's The Moth Gatherer, an atmospheric sludge/post metal band based in Stockholm, will release its third studio album, successor to critically acclaimed The Earth Is The Sky (2015) on February 22nd via Agonia Records. The new album will be entitled Esoteric Oppression. Album's cover artwork and full tracklist can be seen below, in anticipation of a new single, due out before 2019.

Esoteric Oppression was worked on in several recording studios. Guitars, bass and drums were tracked at Studio Underjord with Joona Hassinen, who later mixed the entire album. Electronics and vocals were recorded at The Lifestream Studio. Magnus Lindberg (Cult Of Luna) mastered the album at Redmount Studios, while the production was laid out by The Moth Gatherer. The recording features a guest appearance from Messy Mathi (Barst) on the track "The Drone Kingdom". SCG prepared the album's cover artwork and layout.

The band commented on the new album: "We've put our very fabric into it. Its creation has been a path paved with distress and frustration; one that has left us totally exhausted. But all our effort shows in the music and we can now say that it was worth the turmoil. We're extremely proud to present Esoteric Oppression to you all. We hope you love it as much as we do".

Their last album is fantastic. One of my favorite post metal albums ever. Can't wait for this.
