THE MOTH are a girl and two guys hailing from Hamburg, Germany. Cécile, who plays a 3-stringed bass, and guitarist Frederik sing head to head – which gives there massive sludge songs a unique Jekyll & Hyde-like aural aesthetic that's as brutal as it it bewitching. Their debut album „They Fall' was released on THIS CHARMING MAN RECORDS in September 2013. In the year following the release they already performed at Desertfest Berlin and went on a european tour with UK doom-kings CONAN.
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.
