The Gathering

Alternative rock band

The Netherlands

Dutch alternative rock band The Gathering was founded in 1989 in Oss as a doom metal band. They have seen various line-up changes over the years and have evolved into an eclectic atmospheric rock band. The Gathering have made 19 studio albums to date and have toured Europe and the Americas frequently. The band members have always had a special interest in space and (rocket) science, which can be heard through their songs and albums. The Gathering’s 5th studio album ‘How to Measure a Planet’ (1998) was an ode to science and deals with (space) travelling and escapism. The album was recorded at Wisseloord studio in Hilversum and Bauwhaus-studio, produced by Attie Bauw, and mastered at the famous ‘Abbey Road’ studio.
