Puerto Rican progressive metal outfit Moths and Philly rockers The Stone Eye will be unleashing a 4-track split EP on August 21st. “Intervention” and “Hand of Doom” (Black Sabbath cover) showcase Moths’ unconventional and at times even psychedelic interpretation of stoner metal, while The Stone Eye drives their garage rock gumbo to colossal heights with “Presence of the Mind” and comes back down to earth with the bluesy cover of “Wayfaring Stranger” a traditional folk song.
Moths are a Progressive/Stoner Metal band from San Juan, Puerto Rico that blends powerful riffs with unexpected and increasingly progressive undertones. The band was founded by Weslie Negrón (Bass), Jonathan Miranda (Lead Guitar), and Omar González (Rhythm Guitar) in 2016 with the later addition of Damaris Rodríguez (Vocals) and Daniel Figueroa (Drums).
Moths released their debut, self-titled EP on November 2nd, 2018, gaining attention from important music websites like Bandcamp, Heavy Blog is Heavy, and Dead Rhetoric, among others. The band embarked on their first mainland tour with a short run in the northeastern United States, where the band got a great response from audiences.
In June 2020, their track “Adhara & Ray” was part of the Stimulus Swim mixtape curated by Adult Swim, which had the band featured both in Adult Swim’s website and their TV programming. With Damaris’ aggressive but melodic vocals, Omar’s catchy riffs, Jonathan’s unorthodox leads, Weslie’s solid bass lines, and Daniel’s extreme drumming, Moths creates a perfect balance between heavy and cohesive music.
Praise for Moths
“Combining jazz-infused prog, ‘70s heavy metal and stoner doom, death and thrash metal, and heavy grunge, Moths’ debut is nothing short of a behemoth.” — Gabriel Serrano Denis, bandcamp
” ‘Desires’ became my favorite song of the EP. The balance between the stoner and progressive, through the riffs and the melody from these two talented guitarists, along with Weslie’s famous bass and Daniel’s energetic drumming, took me on one of the most intense trips I could have listening to any band today.” — Omar Segarra, Under the Same Shadow
