Nighttime Birds, the fourth full-length recording from The Gathering and second with vocalist Anneke van Giersbergen, is essentially a further exploration of the style and sound of 1995's Mandylion, sharing with that work the same basic songwriting principles and agenda, and even a very similar studio production.

With Nighttime Birds, the Gathering have reached a state where past meets the future and all elements blend ideally to produce a breath-taking album. Evolving from Mandylion, the band turns to slightly more melodic patterns, keeping its 'metalish' background. Accompanied with really meaningful lyrics, mainly referring to our 'Mother Earth', the beautiful voice of Anneke van Giersbergen sounds totally captivating.
