When people think of bands evolving and almost entirely changing their sound throughout the span of their careers, a few obvious ones come to mind. Change is almost irrelevant in music, as fans who see one of their favorite bands release a great album expect to see the band release almost the exact same album over and over again, because why mess with a great formula? Well, The Gathering is probably the band that has changed the most of any band in history. They have undergone so many changes to their sound that hearing a few records spanning over their career you would think they were all albums from entirely different bands. This new album has competely dropped any sense of heaviness whatsoever. You will not hear one song on this album with even the hint of their metal past, none whatsoever. In fact, even the guitar itself is used rather sparingly, although present on nearly every song it is not a primary instrument. The bass and the atmospherics are what stick out here. Intricate sounds and layering are the main focus here. Anneke's soaring and unique vocal style are used beautifully here as usual and standout. The opening three are all incredible and are filled with beauty and atmosphere. The gap between Souvenirs and Home isn't that big, and that's a bit surprising. But there is still some evolving, and there is only so much a band can do to their sound before they settle down. Perhaps the Gathering has found the sound they want to stick with, and if this is the case, it is still undoubtedly better than most music out there today. Revel in the beauty that is The Gathering, bands like this don't come around very often.
