Dutch vocalist Anneke van Giersbergen is easily one of the hardest working people in music, and an artist that defies being pigeonholed by genre. She 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, recorded and performed multiple times with Canadian metal genius Devin Townsend, and lending her honey-sweet, yet powerful voice to the likes of Anathema, Icelandic folk group Árstíðir, Within Temptation, Ayreon mastermind Arjen Lucassen, Moonspell, John Wetton and Napalm Death.
If you haven't discovered the manifold talents of Anneke van Giersbergen, this is the time to start. Released the same year as Pure Air, In Your Room (2009) featured Agua de Annique taking a lighthearted and decidedly more "pop" approach to Anneke's music. Certainly nothing for the diehard goth-alternative Gathering crowd beyond her voice, but it was instantly recognizable as being Anneke van Giersbergen front and center.
In Your Room is particularly noteworthy in that it was recorded the same year Anneke contributed lead vocals to revered Canadian metalhead Devin Townsend's now-classic Addicted album. That collaboration set the wheels in motion for a working relationship that has since become a musical bond, as Anneke has become an integral part of Devin's writing. The duo wrote the song "Just Fine" for In Your Room, which was no small feat given that he rarely writes with other artists.
