"Always..." was The Gathering's debut full-length album. Originally released in 1992 , it is a prime example of classic atmospheric death/doom metal with brutal vocals & slow funereal riffing influenced by bands such as Celtic Frost, as well as the implementation of keyboards to accentuate the dark ambience. Now released on Peaceville for the first time, a track from the release was even featured on an early Peaceville Records compilation, "Volume 4", with the track "In Sickness & Health". This new 2-disc edition of "Always..." features an extra disc including a full version of the album with an alternate 1994 remix. The packaging also contains updated layout plus new liner notes written by the band. SLIPCASE EDITION.
