A young three-piece from Hamburg. Started in late ’12, the guys didn’t take long to record their first Longplay and releasing it on their own as limited CD (100 copies made). One of these CD found its way to my desk and i was immediately blown away. The play a well tempered mix of Baroness and Kylesa, to keep it simple they rock like hell. No effects used on the guitar, a hammering drumset and a deep punching bass plus female/male singing. that’s pretty much the trick!
that’s what the Sludgelord has to say about their Album “They fall”:
“Now here is a great band that flew right under my radar. The Moth is a Psych based Sludge/Stoner Metal band that fans of Baroness, Kylesa and Mastodon will surely love like I did. Their debut album – They Fall – is 11 excellent hard-rocking tracks full of epic riffs. The dual vocals of Cécile and Freden give the album a real edge. Sometimes they feel they are having a duel at times. At it makes the album ever more intriguing. These are some original and very different vocals you do not hear much of within the Sludge/Stoner Metal scene. The album is expertly played and produced through out. If you like you’re Sludge/Stoner Metal with an extra layer of lo-fi psychedelic fuzz based vibes then you can’t go wrong here. The Moth deserves your attention now. This album came as a real surprise to me when the band originally contacted me. The album cover might not give anything away but as the famous saying goes – Appearances can be deceiving – Or – Never judge a book by its cover. And both of them are true for The Moth. You want more evidence of how great this band is. Check out excellent tracks – Rawhawk, This Is The Lie and my fave track – They Fall.
Look this album is testament that Germany have another excellent Sludge/Stoner Metal band to call upon. It could be that these Sludge Rockers could be one of my fave discoveries of 2013. Excellent and Highly Recommended.”
