The Gathering – Disclosure (2012)

The first track I heard was “Paper Waves” and honestly it was not too convincing while it’s kind of dissolving in the air, but fortunately, the almost 8 minutes of “Meltdown” incorporates everything what makes Magic The Gathering and washes away the Pop-like, but almost tasteless, ultimately a filling felt of “Paper Waves”.
So, the Dutch Alternative Rock driven force, The Gathering are back with their tenth studio album, “Disclosure”, the follow up of the 2009’s “The West Pole” which also marked the debut of their new vocalist Silje Wergeland (previous front woman of Octavia Sperati). Meanwhile, we had a free download on their Bandcamp page, originally released on May 16th, 2011, and still available, “Heroes For Ghosts”, a more darker melange of (Progressive/Alernative) Rock roots and Trip-Hop flavored cinematic moments. And the whole album it’s a journey through smoothly colored, subtly layered and gently flowing soundscapes, The Gathering merging in their own style every musical genre and style their previously explored from explosive and symphonic taste-like Rock to Trip-Hop with blowing Jazz and Electronic flavor. Not even the sky is the limit, not for The Gathering anyway – anymore. And “Disclosure” is a very glossy, joyful journey. Read more The Gathering – Disclosure (2012)
