The Gathering

Mandylion

Reviewed by D.E.T

Incredible album.Surely one of the milestones in metal music history,not just because of somewhat surprising,at that time,appearence of a female vocalist,but the music is also sublime and in perfect harmony with Anekke's hypnotizing voice.This masterpiece has influenced a swarm of bands who appeared almost overnight trying to match the greatness of Mandylion.Needless to say that all have failed to do so,as The Gathering's divine inspiration which has guided the band to create Mandylion,is long gone and unfortunately never to be found again.
