The Gathering at their best

"As far as music DVDs go this is probably one of my favourites. 2005's 'A Sound Relief' was excellent, but what I wanted was something more epic and energetic, and this is what is delivered in 'A Noise Severe.' In this DVD, The Gathering play some of their faster paced new material, but also revisit titles from their earlier doom days, going as far back as tracks from Mandylion including 'Leaves' and 'Eleanor.'
It's a real pleasure to see such an amazing band at their most mature and best still paying homage to their earlier classics. Watching this and bearing in mind that it was Anneke's final tour with The Gathering makes it even more special."
Excellent must have DVD!

"As both a fan of The Gathering and live music, this is the ultimate dvd/cd.
The Gathering is one of the best live bands I have seen and this is one of the better performances of them I can remember. Of course a lot of the ambience you can feel when you are actually there is missing because it can never be translated onto a dvd/cd but you can still see and feel it must have been amazing to be there.
My absolute favorite is the title track, A Noise Severe. It is so powerfull when played live, it is absolutly moving me to tears every time. But songs like Travel and In Motion are also very good. There are no bad songs on this dvd/cd!
Still amazing this great band is so little known but if you are not afraid of taking a chance, grabbed this fabulous performance! I guarantee you will be blown away by Anneke's voice and the enthousism of the band."
