Bat Eats Moth perpetuates an ongoing story of a young man with porphyria, who dies in a car accident, reanimates, and finds that he has become a revenant. The character struggles with the irony and paradox of having a photosensitivity disease (porphyria), and simultaneously being an undead creature that has been falsely identified with photosensitivity.
Who knows; maybe you can tell me...
Bat Eats Moth is the creation of Michael Anthony Marshall, who has been playing bass guitar since 1988. Michael learned to play bass from tablature of Rush, Metallica, Grateful Dead and Jimi Hendrix songs, and attended the local community college to learn music theory and literacy. Three years later, he was hit by a car, bled to death, and reanimated. After that fateful night, he suffered partial amnesia, completely forgetting his music education from the prior 3 years, along with all the songs he'd created during that time. The only thing he could remember was two songs whose main riffs he'd heard in visions just before the accident: The Revenant, and How It All Began. His reanimation experiences and struggles with variegate porphyria have inspired the music of his band project, Bat Eats Moth.
