Mandylion Reviews

Reviewer :    (85/100)
Date : 
전작의 트윈보컬 시스템에서 벗어나 여성 리드보컬을 전면에 내세우고 있는 The Gathering의 두 번째 앨범 Mandylion으로, Gothic Metal 명반리스트에서 빠지지 않는다. 토속적인 리듬과 드라마틱한 구성, 아름다운 멜로디를 바탕으로 중세적이고 비장미어린 사운드를 들려주고 있다. 대다수의 Gothic Metal계열 밴드들이 그러하듯 고딕과 둠의 중간정도에 머물러 있다. 심포닉한 스트링사운드가 일품인 Sand And Mercury, 감동적인 구성미를 지닌 In Motion # 2등을 담고 있다.

Best Track : Sand And Mercury , In Motion # 2
