Description du produit
El clásico álbum del grupo danés The Gathering en una Edición Especial doble CDcon 7 temas inéditos (versiones demo) y libreto de 16 páginas con notas de los propios miembros del grupo sobre cada canción y fotos poco conocidas.
Après quelques albums traçant cahin-caha leur petit chemin sur les routes du death metal, l’arrivée d’Anneke van Giebsbergen au sein de The Gathering permit au groupe de se trouver enfin un style.
La séduisante et envoûtante soprano donna en effet à ce groupe de doom metal une personnalité unique, largement copiée depuis par une armée de clones, pas toujours mauvais il faut bien l’avouer. Terminés les hurlements hardcore sur des riffs saturés, la poésie mélancolique prenait sa place sur les pistes de Mandylion.
Lancé par le titre « Strange Machines », inspiré d’H.G Wells et de Georges Pal, le disque fut un colossal succès pour les Néerlandais de The Gathering et influença radicalement leurs compositions à venir.
Avec Mandylion, The Gathering venait de créer quelque chose de radicalement nouveau dans l’univers du metal. Et quelque chose en fut changé à jamais.

Mandylion is the first Gathering release featuring Anneke van Giersbergen. Her vocals were perfected in later releases but the raw, almost primal feel she gives off at times on here matches the heavy yet always experimental music the rest of the band has to offer.
On a side note, I would buy anything with Anneke's name on it, she's just that good, but the band alone is worth the price of admission. Yes, when The Gathering is heavy they're great but it's on songs like In Motion #1, Leaves, and Mandylion that they really show what they can do. So for me to say that a band alone is worth buying a CD, I dunno, it just doesn't happen that often so I figure it means something.
Song selection is spot on throughout. Strange Machines starts off with a bang that doesn't let up until the final notes are played. Eleanor follows in about the same vein as Strange Machines what with the heaviness, however the drums really catch your ear when you listen to them. In Motion #1 shows the group's more experimental side off well, seeing the entire band really play off of each other. Leaves is owned by Anneke even though the guitar riffs often sport an epic feel. Fear The Sea sees Anneke pull off some nifty vocals but it's the one song that doesn't really fit with the overall outcome. Make no mistake, it's a great song and serves The Gathering catalog justice but maybe it would've fit better on Nighttime Birds? Mandylion is the most experimental track included. From the very beginning you know it's gonna be an interesting listen and it fulfills that notion completely. Sand & Mercury starts off as a somber song but gains momentum to rival even the greatest tracks offered on the CD. And finally, rounding out the CD we are greeted with my personal favorite, In Motion #2. It basically takes the best aspects of the entire disc and combines them. You've got Anneke sounding perfect (you know, the norm), the band moves from light to heavy, and there's even some strings worked in the mix.
As for the bonus disc, highly recommended. If there's one thing I've learned from hearing The Gathering over the years (and especially after hearing 2005's Accessories: Rarities & B-Sides) it's to expect the demos to have as much, if not more, passion than the original. Make no mistake, the originals usually shine brighter than the demos but hearing the rough versions makes you appreciate the final product that much more. Special mention goes to Solar Glider...amazing.
My favorite songs are Strange Machines, In Motion #1 & 2, Leaves, and Sand & Mercury. For Anneke making such a strong vocal debut with the band on Mandylion it's hard to believe she only gets better with each passing CD. However, Mandylion is a fine start for any newcomer and without a doubt is sure to go down as a classic by any means.
The songs Strange Machines and Eleanor are very powerful and remind me alot of Within Temptation. In Motion #1 reminds me more of early Lacuna Coil. Sand And Mercury has a similar sound to some of the material on the Anti-M CD Damage (check the songs Rage and Damage in the Dream if you have itunes). But overall the album is unique and doesn't sound "like" any other band.
Mandylion is a good entry album for someone who has never listened to them before. If you like this album Nighttime birds is a good second choice. Another band of interest would be Nightwish. A little more symphonic metal than the gathering but the album Once is quite good (check songs Siren and Nemo).
Mandylion is by far one of their best.
There are sounds on here I hear out of the blue during the day, as clear as day, and there is a haunting melody that has to be heard over and over till you are tired of such delightful sounds. This to me is really the final destination of the Gatherings ever evolving sound, it would hit it's pinnacle on Mandylion and Nighttime Birds which followed a couple years later.
Very inspirational symphonic metal I guess it's referred to most often with female vocals featured throughout, done many years before it would become the norm, the formula has been tweaked and things have been added and taken away, but for me no one ever did it as good as the Gathering did it back in 1995-1997.
