In their 23 years of constant evolution The Gathering managed to touch on everything from metal and trip-rock to styles featuring more a ambient or progressive edge. No matter what direction they choose, they universally succeed. The swapping of vocalist Anneke Van Giersbergen (1994-2007) for Silje Wergeland led to the album ‘The West Pole’, and recently The Gathering revealed their latest opus magnus ‘Disclosure’ (September 2012).
On this 10th release Silje’s presence seems to inspire the band in ways that no previous vocalist ever has. From start to finish, the 8 tracks are an extraordinary endeavor into the farthest reaches of The Gathering’s progressive/experimental side. Dark and light collide in a beautiful way as guitars, drums and bass-lines melt together with Silje’s pitch-perfect vocals, keyboards, violins en even a trumpet.

The Gathering is one of the most successful Dutch groups which extraordinary music and has influenced many bands. The band has sold a million records from their backcatalogue and toured the world with extensive tours in Europe, the USA and Canada, South-America and Central America.
