Home is the eighth album by Dutch band The Gathering. The album was released on 15 April 2006 by Sanctuary Records through its heavy metal label Noise. The album had a separate release in North America which took place on 18 April 2006 by Brooklyn-based label The End Records. It was the last album to feature lead singer and lyricist Anneke van Giersbergen.

In an interview for the San Diego-based magazine Modern Fix, drummer Hans Rutten described Home as being "more stripped-down...Souvenirs was quite structured and was quite heavy to make. This one is more simple, I think, but still there, still in a Gathering kind of way. But rhythmically speaking, it's more stripped-down, it’s more primitive, I think. I think 'primitive' is a good word...it’s more instinctive (and) more primitive. It’s not as layered as Souvenirs, and maybe it’s less 'trippish.' Maybe it’s more...yeah, primitive trip-rock, something like that."[2]
