Album artwork for Home:
Ever since their inception 15 years ago Dutch rock act The Gathering have continued to evolve, never settling on one set style and rarely ever duplicating themselves. They have embraced change along the way and used it as a tool to feed their ongoing creative process.
Like their previous groundbreaking releases – their classic ‘Mandylion’ (1995), the electronic dabblings of ‘How to Measure a Planet?’ (1998) or the trip-hop/atmospheric warmth of ‘Souvenirs’ (2003) – their latest album ‘Home’ finds the band heading back to a bit more of rock vibe, yet still maintaining the delicate nuances and passages that fans worldwide have grown to love.
But the momentum here is not entirely based on emotional highs, as the band still manages to capture the dark s! pirit that most human beings have had to deal with from time to time. Variation has always been the key, case in point the diverse offering of such numbers as “In Between,” “Shortest Day,” “A Noise Severe” and the powerfully moving title track.
With ‘Home’ once again fans old and new will find comfort in the diverse and emotional warmth of their music. Welcome home, The Gathering.
