Guest review by

"Almost A Dance" is the second full-length album of the Dutch group The Gathering. The album is a step into a very different dimension from the doom-death metal realm the band dwelt in during their early years. Bart Smits and Marike Groot had left the crew and new singers had arrived. Namely Niels Duffhues and Martine Van Loon.
