MOTHS – SPACE FORCE
Are we going overboard with so much Friday Freebies? Sure we are! But it’s been sweltering across the globe, and I guess we can all use a dip in the ocean of heaviness! Up next, your heavy rock lifejacket, in the form of: MOTHS! Their new release SPACE FORCE came out on August 12 and made it to Number 16 of the August Doom Charts!
Frazer Jones: “Puerto Rico’s Moths bring riffs to the party but not just riffs there is also an off-centred progishness about what these guys do that will blow your mind!”
Rich Piva: “MOTHS new EP, Space Force, is all over the map in the best kind of way. You get both clean and growling male and female vocals. You get some proggy space rock bits (Broken Slumber). You get some heavy stoner doom offerings (Awake). Some laid back stoner psych rock with keys (Unbound). Even some Space Death Doom (Space Force). But never do you feel disjointed or that you are not on the same rocket trip headed towards some distant planet where all the inhabitants worship their God Iommi.”
Their own words: “Fusing charming familiarity with captivating freshness, MOTHS demonstrates an exceptional ability and willingness to saturate shades of their musical forebearers with plenty of wide-ranging and idiosyncratic personality.”
