The Gathering-Nighttime Birds (Century Media)
1. "On Most Surfaces"
I really like this band but am at a loss of words when it comes to describing it. The Gathering are heavy, but also very melodic, yet not in a commercial or pop way. It sort of like progressive metal meets doom metal. The female vocals are mesmerizing and along with the slow, yet dynamic music creates a mood that is hard to put into words. I don't listen to this disc alot, but if I am in the right mood, this disc is downright captivating.
