Funeral Moth Biography

Funeral Moth was formed by Nobuyuki Sentou(ex-Coffins/ex-Psycho To Black), Makoto Fujishima(ex-deathchurch/de-nihil/Autumn Stillness), and Junpei Ishimaru(Morquido) in Autumn 2005. Funeral Moth's debut live was held on May 3rd 2006 and shared the stage with some international bands like StarGazer(Aus), Gallhammer, Intestine Baalism and so on. In November 2006, they recorded 1st demo at Noise Room Studio, at which Nobuyuki recorded many stuffs as Coffins/Psycho To Black member. "The Moth Flying to the Funeral Sky" was released by Makoto's own label Weird Truth Productions.

In the end of 2007, Junpei left the band because he was too much busy for his own personal life. Soon after he was replaced by Yuichiro Azegami(Brob/Realized). With this new lineup, they re-recorded 2 songs on demo and which was released as first CD EP in June 2008. In June 2008, they shared the stage with German doom cult Worship in Tokyo.

In July 2010, they toured with Australian doom band Mournful Congregation. During this tour, Takafumi Matsubara(ex-Gridlink/ex-Mortalized) played with us as a special guest. After the tour, they started to seek permanent 2nd guitar player and finally in January 2012 Mayo Odium(Dogoh/ex-Ssorc/ex-stabat Mater) joined.

In July 2013, Mayo Odium left the band and he's replaced by Tomohiro Kanja(Realm[Negativeaidguerrilla Realm]/Discrete Corporality/Realized). In February 2014, their 1st album "dense fog" was released and toured with Worship again.

In February 2015, they played in Taipei which was first time for them to play outside Japan. In May, 2008 self titled EP was released as 12" vinyl by Chinese label Psychedelic Lotus Order and 2x 12" vinyl version of dense fog album was released by Spanish Throne Records. In July, they played at Fearest Death Cult, which is the one of the biggest DIY extreme music festival held in Osaka. After that gig, Nobuyuki left the band to concentrate more on his own personal life. He was replaced by bass player Ryo Amamiya(ex-Juki) and they started to record 2nd album "transience", which will be released in March 2016 from Weird Truth Productions.
