    The Gathering are probably my favourite band, and despite them getting a lot of recognition in a lot of other countries, I have never met a fan of them in the UK.

    They started out playing death-doom metal, but by their third album they had the singer Anneke Van Giersbergen, and started playing more atmospheric music, and throughout their career they have done something different on every album, but still kept their own original sound through each one.

    Anyway, would be good to talk to people who know them. I've been waiting for them to come to the UK for three years when I started listening to them, but they haven't for nearly a decade

    I've been heavily recommended them by the guy who got me into "real" metal.

    Where would you recommend starting with them?

    Start With Mandylion I would say. The first one with Anneke. The first two are good albums, but nowhere near as the good as from Mandylion onwards.

    I'm not actually sure what my favourite album by them is.

    Yes! I got into them after finding Great Ocean Road on a mix CD in about 2001. Great band. My favourite album is if.then.else, I think.

    Some great songs on that one. Love Analog park, herbal movement, amity and rollercoaster especially.

    ^I like that one too, took me a lot longer to take to that than the others. Have you heard sleepy buildings? The live version of Amity on that is amazing.

    I'm really happy that they've kept going with no Anneke...but I guess that song just doesn't take me places. I'll keep an open mind for the album, though
