Review by Mellotron Storm
PROG REVIEWER
3 stars 3.5 stars. A pretty good Ep from the band that was released the year before "Souvenirs". Actually the final track "Broken Glass" would end up on that album in full electric sound.

The title track is the star of this show. It's a slow building song that opens with gently and slowly played piano. Drums arrive after 2 minutes. Spoken words from Sarah Jezebel Deva after 3 1/2 minutes that continue as the song builds. Anneke comes in at 5 minutes as the spoken words continue. The piano stops 6 minutes in as the guitar comes in ripping it up. The sound is getting heavier 7 1/2 minutes in and so is the intensity. Piano returns 10 minutes in as the song calms back down. Anneke is back before 13 minutes with reserved vocals in a mellow soundscape.

"Debris" is a straight forward, heavy, guitar driven track. Anneke sounds amazing. "Broken Glass" is a piano and vocal only song. Her vocals are higher pitched than normal and are quite moving at times.

If your a fan of this band don't hesitate to get this one, you'll be glad you did.

3 stars Black Light District is a solid EP from the Gathering. Unlike the majority of EP's out there, this release is certainly more then a fan-only item.

The 16 minute title track is the obvious focal point of this EP and an excellent piece of music, far more experimental and proggy then the Gathering's usual song oriented writing. It has obvious influences from post-rock such as a loose structure, an improvised feel and the crescendo build-up. But this piece sure rocks more then the usual pensive noodling in that style, only the opening and the second half are more laid-back. Apart from a few soft vocal lines, the track is entirely instrumental.

Debris is a hard rocking song with a nice experimental vibe. One of my favourite post-If_The_Else Gathering songs. Broken Glass is a piano ballad that would get an instrumental reworking on Souvenirs. Anneke Van Giersbergen uses her head voice much more then now then her well known powerful throat. It results in a higher pitched and gentler delivery that sits quite close to Radiohead.

Not only will this EP not disappoint the fans of this band, it might also be an interesting discovery of a more experimental side of the Gathering.

4 stars A very good mini EP from the Dutch band. The three songs are amazing and except broken glass(very intimist and of good quality though, it will appear on the following album in its full form), the other are better that the material on the album Souvenirs. Well, not much to say that has not already ... (read more)

4 stars It took The Gathering quite a long time to come with a followup album to "If_Then_Else" (2000). To not completely lose the public's attention, this EP was released as a kind of teaser. Its raison d'être became apparent in hindsight: these songs wouldn't have fitted on "Souvenirs" (2003), apart o ... (read more)
