The Gathering Always Vinyl

 

The Gathering is a Dutch alternative rock band founded in 1989 by brothers Hans and Rene Rutten and vocalist Bart Smits. The early incarnation of the band featured a much more death & doom metal based style than the more atmospheric rock & experimental music they became known for over the years, having enjoyed a highly successful career globally over a 20 year period. The band recorded 2 demos before making their studio debut with "Always...".
 
"Always..." was The Gathering's debut full-length album. Originally released in 1992 , it is a prime example of classic atmospheric death/doom metal with brutal vocals & slow funereal riffing influenced by bands such as Celtic Frost, as well as the implementation of keyboards to accentuate the dark ambience. Now released on Peaceville for the first time, a track from the release was even featured on an early Peaceville Records compilation, "Volume 4", with the track "In Sickness & Health".
 
This edition of "Always..."  is presented on 180gm heavyweight black vinyl.
