"Always..." was the first full-length release by the wondrous Dutch band The Gathering. The album came out in 1992 and experienced quite a success. The group was practicing doom death metal combined with their own special characteristics while making this album. After two earlier demos "Always..." was an important level to be completed in the long evolution of this particular band.

Rating: 8 I cant fault this album at all. In my opinion,it is every bit as good as 'nighttime birds' and 'mandylion'. Ok,it isn't exactly similar sounding to the gathering of today, but it still has plenty of thought-provoking melodies and progression to get stuck into. I love every minute of it:)
