On September 22, German doom/sludge metal trio The Moth will release their new album Frost, via Exile on Mainstream. Today, the band have shared their new video for “Battlefield,” directed by Torben Kasch. The video is a raw mix of live-in-rehearsal-space rocking out and walks through their native Hamburg, while the song itself is an absolute ripper. Blending thick, murky riffs befitting the heaviest doom metal bands with a knack for hooks and immediacy, the band navigates similar terrain as bands such as Torche and Kylesa, making heavy music that isn’t afraid to be a little catchy.

The Moth’s Cécile Ash said in a statement, “Often, the worst emotional injuries come from a direction we would never expect – from the people closest to us. In those moments, there seems to be no solace to be found, and we feel abandoned. Sometimes, the pain is so intense, or the shame is so overwhelming that we cannot (yet) talk about it, and we are left alone with our grief. We put on a smile for the world, even though we are being torn apart inside. In doing so, we deny ourselves and, to exaggerate it slightly, we slowly destroy our souls – with each of these situations a bit more. Perhaps this is not an exaggeration, but rather the reality.”
