Welcome!
Alternative rock, gothic metal, doom metal, triprock, shoegaze, postrock, progrock, melodic rock; The Gathering's unique sound makes this Dutch band hard to pigeonhole. The Gathering formed in Oss (Netherlands) in 1989 as a doom metal band, and has since evolved into an experienced alternative rockband.
Founded by brothers Rene Rutten (guitars) & Hans Rutten (drums) & Bart Smits (vocals), soon joined by Hugo Prinsen Geerligs (bass), Jelmer Wiersma (guitars) and Frank Boeijen (keyboards), the band has seen some different line-ups ever since. In 2008 current singer Silje Wergeland joined the band, after the previous vocalist, Anneke van Giersbergen, pursued a solo career. The Gathering has released 19 albums to date, with worldwide sales. No album is similar to the previous one, with Strange Machines (Mandylion), Travel (How to measure a planet), You learn about it (Souvenirs) and Echoes keep growing (Afterwords) as some of their most successful songs.
The band did multiple tours through Europe and North and South America and performed at festivals like Roskilde, Glastonbury, Sziget and Rock am Ring.
The most recent albums, 'Disclosure' and 'Afterwords', were released in 2012 and 2013, but in 2019/2020 the band celebrates its 30th (!) anniversary and is working on new music.
The Gathering are: Silje Wergeland (vocals), Rene Rutten (guitars), Hans Rutten (drums), Frank Boeijen (keyboards) & Hugo Prinsen Geerligs (bass).
