THE GATHERING "Home"

Another band with a mighty return, as the new album, even if it's more experimental, has appeal and shows some extremely elegant sonorities! Even if Anneke's voice is unique and purely fantastic on this new material, the album doesn't seem to hold any link to Metal and this makes me keep the details to myself. Probably the "Mandylion" era has burned up for good, not to mention their splendid "...always" debut. I only care to say that the Alternative Trip Experimental Rock, touching Ethereal/Goth and Psyhedelic shades, with plenty of Dark marks, performed by the Dutch is a very inspired and original one; still, the feminine voice lasts as the key element. Starting with The Cranberries and voyaging to Kate Bush, in an extremely commercial form, THE GATHERING presents us through "Home", a relaxing music, better and more mystical than the one on the previous albums... unfortunately, there is no Metal scent!
