5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific DVD From Dutch Trip Rock Supremos 17 May 2008
By Philoctetes TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Absolutely superb arena concert by The Gathering recorded in Santiago, 2007. To think I once saw them play some pokey little club in London for about an hour. Here we get a two hour retrospective, so all the favourites from their hard rock / prog metal days are covered, together with amped-up renditions of the more recent ambient-rock material.

As expected, all my attention was on Anneke; vocally resplendent, she copes well with what is a very demanding set list. If I could change one thing, well, a small gripe, but a second guitarist wouldn't hurt to help clarify the rhythm and lead material. In fact Anneke plays a guitar on a couple of numbers, one being a hugely self-indulgent performance of the rare Black Light District.

They really made it. A hugely important, inspirational band that openly defied being pigeonholed and were able to metamorphose like caterpillar to butterfly. They deserve to be much better known in the UK, so if you think you might enjoy a Dutch band with an original slant on the English language, strong female vocals and an atmospheric blend of guitar and keyboards, then dive right in. Check out You Tube to sample at least one number from A Noise Severe.

A very special night.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Noise 2 Nov 2013
This is an essential purchase for fans of The Gathering. It's a record of Anneke's final tour with the band and is the next best thing if you never had the chance to see them live (which I was lucky to do twice). What comes across, apart from the great renditions of their songs, is Anneke's total approachability and lack of pretension on stage - and, of course, that voice. This is a band going about their business with a real appreciation of their fans. The song selection covers just about all their albums from Mandylion through Home. The companion DVD, A Sound Relief, is an excellent compliment to this and focuses more on their slower compositions.

2.0 out of 5 stars A noise disappointing 6 Oct 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Having been very impressed with the studio offerings I had high hopes for this live DVD. Unfortunately my confidence that The Gathering could reproduce their classy and distinctive material before a live audience was sadly misplaced. The guitar overpowers the vocals and all else to such an extent that the result is, well, just noisey. Compared with live DVD offerings from Nightwise and Within Temptation (where its sometimes hard to tell the live from studio) the sound quality here is poor. A shame.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect !!! 30 Aug 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
One of the most superb band DVDs I have ever seen. I love the Gathering, but as Annique has left this is a great record of them performing at their collective best, however the Live show apart what really makes this DVD stand out is the documentary on Disc 2. Often these are badly thrown together mish mash pieces. Not here, a moving and very warm record of the processes in the creation of their last album with Annique - Home. I can't recommend this DVD highly enough, the masters of melodic Doom Metal at their VERY best.

4.0 out of 5 stars END OF AN ERA FOR THE GATHERING 3 Mar 2008
By J. H. Infante - Published on
Last gig in Chile, last recording sessions, last mixing, last mastering, last album presentation The Gathering wrotte more than a decade with Anneke on vocals and at this time to be honest it looks like its the end of the road for them, its true the band existed before Anneke and its also true they emerged with a frontman instead of a woman and even is true that their music style was extreme death metal but Anneke presence was so remarkable not only for this band but for the alternative rock worldwide, that as it was a benefit for them to have her it will be a damage for this group now they loose her, this is not the case of many other bands that change their vocalist and the band keeps on working and selling and having fans, It needs someone very special to keep being the same.

This gig in Chile in front of an audience of 4,000 persons is more than spectacular, this is perhaps the highest point in The Gathering career and its important to remark they didnt repeated the same tracklisting played for "A sound relief" this is so cool because we can have an idea of how they play as many tracks as we can, lights, stage , everything is full of light and color and emotion.

Disc 2 shows a short film as a documentary of the recording process for "Home" from the arrangments to have a proper setup in a Chruch and then mastering in another studio, maybe is my imagination but Anneke doesnt seem to be very entusiastic , maybe she already had in mind her departure.

A Noise Severe its the final document The Gathering has left along with their other albums, this is sad but things have to come to an end
