Format: Audio CD
Having achieved a small measure of success with their first two albums, gloomy mixes of doom and softer death metal The Gathering sought a change in direction of sound. The Rutten brothers who had formed the group sought out little known Dutch vocalist Anneke Van Giersbergen and created the most exciting band to come out of Europe in the latter days of the 20th Century. Choosing a lighter rock sound, ditching the growling vocals, but keeping the guitars and progressive elements, Mandylion became a hit; a sprawling, influential epic which remains many fans' favourite. Van Giersbegen's trippy lyrics flow smoothly with Rutten's musical landscapes but it is the new vocalist's voice which would come to define the group. Each song is lifted by the power in her voice, indeed the songs would never have been possible or conceived of with any other normal singer. Although the album wouldn't show off some of her softer tones, she wails wonderfully, soaring high and low and conveying any number of moods in just a few syllables. From this point on the band would grow and evolve with each new album proving as interesting as the one before; not the first album, but where it all truly began.

`Strange Machines' opens the album with a classic distorted riff. When the drums and chimes kick in you know it will be a huge song, but when Anneke starts to sing you know you are listening to something special. The lyrics cover a wish to fly through time, stopping at famous moments and periods- nothing particularly exciting but key to the album as a whole. It is the musical progression which is central here, verse turning to chorus as you would expect, but with instrumental middle parts reminding the listener of Metallica, Radiohead, Dream Theater- any number of other bands but also sounding like nothing else.

The very first The Gathering song I ever heard was 'Leaves', and from then on I was hooked... I can't be bothered to write a proper review, but believe me this is essential for those who'd like to hear some more interesting, gorgeuous sounding metal. And if Anneke's beautiful vocals (quite rightly the albums centre of attention) don't give you goosebumps at least once, then you must be dead. Oh, and the demo version of 'In Motion #1' (on the second CD) is better than the album version IMO! Do the band a favour, and DON'T download it illegally - BUY IT cos such a talented, thoughtful band don't deserve to have their music 'stolen' from them.

Atmospheric symphonic prog-metal sometimes tends to breed a certain amount of rather watered-down prog "metal" bands whose music is really metal without the power.
There are, however, a few bands who get the balance right, and The Gathering is one of them, at least on this release (their first with vocalist Anneke van Giersbergen), which is generally regarded as their masterpiece.
The music combines crunching guitar work with spacy keyboards and powerful vocals.
The group's main selling point is Anneke's voice which is clear, not screechy and very easy on the ear.
The title track is an instrumental that makes use of exotic percussion sounds; "Sand and Mercury" builds beautifully to a nice climax; and the closer is the most symphonic track of the album.
This is a very good album for prog fans who like some crunch to their music.

This is where to start with The Gathering, a little bit of filler (for me) in the middle with a couple of mainly instrumental tracks but Anneke is a complete powerhouse on this album. No two Gathering albums ever seem to sound completely alike and if I am honest, I wish they had done another one like this before Anneke started to entice us with the softer, sweeter sound of her (for me, heavenly) voice.
Where to go next if this was the first one you ever bought? Maybe Disclosure with Silje taking over as vocalist, or How to Measure a Planet? or If Then Else or Souvenirs?

I have only just discovered The Gathering through hearing Anneke van Giersbergen on Addicted by Devin Townsend. I was amazed at how beautiful her voice was. So I just had to buy this. Her voice is amazing and even better the music is fantastic, great guitar sounds, extremely unique. I listen to alot of Nightwish and that sort of music, this is slightly more layed back, but still with great guitars, drums and singing. Not sure how I missed them first time round. I highly recomend this, plus you get a live cd as well. One of my best purchases ever.
