The Gathering are a b and from the Netherlands that has a history that goes back more than 20 years with their music starting out as being death/doom metal but then evolved into a gothic metal band then changing their style to atmospheric rock and this is a review of their 2012 album "Disclosure" which was released by Psychonaut Records.
Drums range from slow to mid paced drumming with no fast playing or blast beats, while the keyboards bring a very dark and atmospheric sound to the music with some influences from electronica, as for the bass playing it has a very strong and powerful sound with riffs that dominate throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow to mid paced atmospheric rock riffs that also utilize some shoegaze, gothic, dream pop and indie rock influences in the riffing as well as a brief use of clean and soft playing and there are no guitar solos or leads present on this recording.
Vocals are mostly clean singing female vocals with some male vocals being utilized at times, while the lyrics cover dark themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording, in addition some of the songs are long and epic in length.
In my opinion this is another great album from The Gathering and if you are a fan of this band, you should enjoy this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Paper Waves" "Heroes For Ghosts" and "I Can See Four Miles". RECOMMENDED BUY.
