Dutch singer Anneke van Giersbergen will forever be known as the vocalist for melancholic metallers The Gathering, but since striking out on her own in 2007, she has solidified a solo career and recorded and performed multiple times with Canadian metal genius Devin Townsend, among others. To present her progressive metal side, Anneke formed VUUR, a new band that features some of the best heavy metal players in the Netherlands.
VUUR will release their full-length debut ‘In This Moment We Are Free - Cities’ on October 20th via InsideOut Music. From there the band will hit the road and focus on new material, as well as the heavier side of Anneke's previous outings. According to Anneke ,,You could say VUUR's music has the melancholy of The Gathering and certain elements from The Gentle Storm, but it's darker with fewer folk elements. It's still melodic and warm, but heavy."
