The Gathering are considered to be one of the founders of female fronted hard rock and metal. Nearly 15 years ago, this Dutch superband had humble beginnings with a unique style of hard rock that featured both a male and female lead singer. Over the years the band evolved, both in sound and style, and soon they had 2 female singers and no male backing vocals. Also they adjusted styles to a more ethereal Jazz style of Rock, and thus created their own genre of music, trip-rock. A SOUND RELIEF is the official DVD from the band, chronicling 15 years of rock in one live show.
