The Moth

The MothTHE MOTH are a girl and two guys hailing from Hamburg, Germany. Cécile, who plays a 3-stringed bass, and guitarist Freden (who doesn’t use a single effect pedal) sing head to head – which gives their massive metal-doom songs a unique Jekyll & Hyde-like aural aesthetic that’s as brutal as it it bewitching. Their albums „THEY FALL“ and “AND THEN RISE” have been released on THIS CHARMING MAN RECORDS.Though the band is really young (founded in October 2012) it has already garnered lots of praise in the sludge- and doom-metal scene and been reviewed around the world. The year after the release of their debut they already went on a European tour with british doom kings CONAN, performed at Desertfest Berlin or supported acts like BLACK TUSK and KADAVER.This year, after the release of their sophomore album, the band toured the UK (amongst others with CONAN) and Europe and were invited to festivals from Oslo to Vienna. From slow burning doom to speed thrash-riffs: A well-tempered mix of High on Fire, Crowbar and Kylesa – their sound is virtually void of frills, instead opting to turn out hammer heavy drums and riff ready songs. In no time THE MOTH have established themselves at the head of the new breed of trailblazing German sludgemetallers.
