THE GATHERING Commence Mixing New Full-Length CD

August 19, 2002

Holland's THE GATHERING have commenced the mixing process for their as-yet-untitled new full-length effort, tentatively due in January through the group's own Psychonaut Records.

According to drummer Hans Rutten, "we're all relieved and satisfied as it turned out excellent. Right now we've streamlined the album into a 10-track full length, a mere 50 minutes of music. Those 10 tracks work with each other, they are making all individual songs even stronger. The detailing and giving the songs the right balance/mix was sometimes a harsh and cruel process. Throwing away mixes of 3 days work, it's painful, spending so many times on details which in the end we didn't use at all. Kill your darlings. But it's the only way.

"We still have some work left, we need to master after the mixing process is done, but we are getting a more clear picture day by day."

Among the tracks set to appear on the forthcoming CD are the following:

01. A Life All Mine (feat. ULVER's Trickster G, a.k.a. Christophorus G Rygg)
02. Even The Spirits Are Afraid
03. Broken Glass
04. We Just Stopped Breathing
05. Golden Grounds
06. Jelena
07. You Learn About It
08. Souvenirs

Says Rutten: "Some ideas we've thrown away, some tracks will pop up in a different shape. Somewhere in autumn we will try to put an mp3 file of a song online. Damn curious how [the fans] will react on this new CD, as it is quite intense, dark and gloomy."
