After listening to The Gathering since 1998/1999 I was finally able to see them live when they played their last show with Anneke. AMAZING! Afterwards the band members were hanging out at the festival area and I got to meet all of them. Super nice people!

Not a full length album, but my band Sotajumala did a split release with Torture Killer and it was released as both, cd single and 7” vinyl. Another cool thing to add to the list of things you can look back to 50 years from now and see everything you’ve accomplished with music.
The vinyl version was of course a limited edition (500 copies) and it had a different, more brutal cover artwork. Our label felt that the original artwork was too brutal and that some stores/distributors might not like/carry it, so we did a different version for the cd and kept the original one for the vinyl release. Classic!
