Alex Stjernfeldt and Victor Wegeborn - guitars, bass, electronics, vocals, and drums.

The Mother Gatherer's music is hard to label, due to band's non-one-dimensional approach towards the songs they create; the Experimental/Progressive etiquette seems almost too laconic to fully do justice to the spirit of the compositions. The debut offers up long and complex tracks, but still surprisingly simple and compelling. Abundance of tempo changes and variations that surround the album bask in emotionally charged, progressive yet utterly melodic slower-sections, addictive enough to stimulate the imagination.
Fans of acts such as Neurosis, Breach or Cult of Luna, will find a host of amusement listenening to these Swedes.
