The Dutch trip-rockers The Gathering need no further introduction. In the very interesting interview that follows, Frank Boeijen talks, among others, about “Highlander”, the departure of their previous singer Anneke and their career’s landmark album “How To Measure A Planet”.Here is the interview for subexistance.
Almost a Dance: happy, eager, naïve (again)
Mandylion: serious, grown, genuine
Nighttime Birds: rushed, forced, dreamy
How To Measure a Planet: fresh, exciting, best
If_Then_Else: organic, loved, underrated
Souvenirs: transparent, new, dark
Home: sad, hopeful, ending
The West Pole: fresh, wild, searching
Well, for our public career Mandylion was the most vital. We really reached a wider audience with that one.
