I don’t want to leave anyone in suspense so I’ll just come right out and say it; 100% of the blame for this album being as horrible as it is goes to their vocalist. On the album before this they were firmly entrenched in Doom Metal complete with Death Metal vocals, but they wanted to move away from that and tried to get a more contemporary vocalist for the band. What they got is someone who sounds like Mike Patton at his most nasally, except without any of the vocal ability or creativity.

Almost a Dance is second album by the Dutch band The Gathering. Gone are the death metal vocals, as well as original vocalist Bart Smits. In its replacement are Goth vocals by Niels Duffhues who thankfully only graces us this one time. Martine’s female vocals are a step up from Marike’s performance on Always but still not even close to Anneke’s vocal performance in future release, I guess the third times a charm. Not saying that her performance is bad but just generic, doesn’t stand out as compared to Anneke. Now on to the best part of the albu. he music, Almost a Dance is comparable to Mandylion. I will argue that it’s actually better. First, both have that heavy doom metal feel yet Almost a Dance feels more majestic rather than the dense Mandylion

Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music(2%). Almost a Dance" is the 2nd full-length studio album by Dutch doom/ goth metal band The Gathering. The album was released in 1993 through the Foundation 2000 label. This is the last album by the band before they would change direction with "Mandylion (1995)" adding a female lead vocalist. The music on "Almost a Dance" is doom/ goth metal with clean male vocals and occasional clean female vocals. As on the debut "Always (1992)" the music is very melodic with some rather dominant keyboards for the genre.
