About The Gathering

The Gathering is a beloved atmospheric rock band from Holland. Their commercially successful sound weds neo-prog, indie rock, experimental electronics, and Gothic tenets. Though they began recording and touring as a doom metal act during the early '90s, 1995's Mandylion showcased the addition of frontwoman Anneke van Giersbergen, marking the first stages of their sonic transition, and the album became their commercial breakthrough in Europe. The van Giersbergen era lasted until 2008 and resulted in several charting albums, including 2003's Souvenirs and 2006's Home. Since the arrival of frontwoman/composer/pianist Silje Wergeland for 2009's The West Pole, their music continued to travel in more experimental directions, embracing elements of neo-psychedelia, trip-hop, shoegaze, and textured ambience as evidenced by 2013's Afterwords. Following the global COVID-19 quarantine, the Gathering returned in 2022 with Beautiful Distortion, their first studio album in a decade.
