Mothra is an instrumental post metal band from Auckland NZ formed in 2008, made up of Hugh Allan (guitars, samples) James Armstrong (drums) and Reuben Saffer (bass).
Mothra blend elements of post metal, sludge, math metal, and psychedelic/progressive rock into their sound, often finding their own sonic territory, but never shy in nodding to the obvious bands that helped pave the way.
Mothra have opened for Helmet, Russian Circles, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Earth, Devin Townsend Project, Jakob, This Will Destroy You and sleepmakeswaves. They were selected out of 50 entries to open for the NZ 2010 Big Day Out by Real Groove Magazine.
Mothra’s long awaited debut album is set for release this year.
