The start of the Gathering roots back to the year 1989. Close to the Dutch small town of Oss, the brothers Hans and René Rutten founded the band that was later called the Gathering, together with Bart Smits and other friends. Right from the start they decided to avoid the easy and obvious paths and meticulously modelled the individual band sound. At weekly rehearsals, they worked their way from the mutual basis heavy metal to other musical styles until their first demo-tape An Imaginary Symphony summarised the early experiences in 1990. Their straight metal sound interwoven with keyboards was received with enthusiasm by the press even back then. More demos followed and in 1991 the band opened for high-calibre metal bands such as Morbid Angel and Death

The same thing happened with A Sound Relief.
I cannot get a replacement nor a refund because I can't return the item: I live in another country (Colombia).
I wish there could be another solution for us, the international customers. I hate the idea of buying again the same product, just to get a working second bloody disc, or even worst, the same faulty disc.
I am a huge fan of The Gathering, and for a very very long time I've been wanting so bad this double DVD, it hurts to finally get only the half...
It's a real pleasure to see such an amazing band at their most mature and best still paying homage to their earlier classics. Watching this and bearing in mind that it was Anneke's final tour with The Gathering makes it even more special.
This gig in Chile in front of an audience of 4,000 persons is more than spectacular, this is perhaps the highest point in The Gathering career and its important to remark they didnt repeated the same tracklisting played for "A sound relief" this is so cool because we can have an idea of how they play as many tracks as we can, lights, stage , everything is full of light and color and emotion.
Disc 2 shows a short film as a documentary of the recording process for "Home" from the arrangments to have a proper setup in a Chruch and then mastering in another studio, maybe is my imagination but Anneke doesnt seem to be very entusiastic , maybe she already had in mind her departure.
A Noise Severe its the final document The Gathering has left along with their other albums, this is sad but things have to come to an end
GATHERING - SOUND RELIEF DOUBLE DVD
The Gathering is one of the best live bands I have seen and this is one of the better performances of them I can remember. Of course a lot of the ambience you can feel when you are actually there is missing because it can never be translated onto a dvd/cd but you can still see and feel it must have been amazing to be there.
My absolute favorite is the title track, A Noise Severe. It is so powerfull when played live, it is absolutly moving me to tears every time. But songs like Travel and In Motion are also very good. There are no bad songs on this dvd/cd!
Still amazing this great band is so little known but if you are not afraid of taking a chance, grabbed this fabulous performance! I guarantee you will be blown away by Anneke's voice and the enthousism of the band.
