NewEARS Album Of The MonthAs ever with Enchant, the overall feeling is of Prog-Metal with a stronger eye for the Prog than the Metal, big riffs and killer drums merely driving on a selection of more refined ideas which expertly walk the fine line between exuberant and tightly focused.
Enchant - The Great Divide
All five musicians are faultless throughout, the interplay between Ott, Jenkins, Platt and Flanegan a balance where all four shine, yet no one individual dominates, while Ted Leonard [Spock's Beard] puts in a vocal display that really does mark him out as one of Prog's finest frontmen. SR - SoT
Essential Tracks: The closing "Here And Now" is a perfect example of how Enchant sprinkle their dust, a busy yet unobtrusive keyboard melody setting the tone for the drums to pop, roll and crash in unison, while somehow the overall vibe still seems more caring and inviting than boisterous or grandiose. SR - SoT

Legendary guitarist Steve Hackett has announced his Genesis Extended Tour, featuring a selection of classics to include some of the gems he had to sacrifice on the Award winning Genesis Revisited live shows. With a career and repertoire spanning decades between Genesis and his outstanding solo work, this will be the last opportunity for fans to see Hackett perform a whole set from the seminal prog band's catalogue.
An enthusiastic Steve Hackett explains: "Due to the success of the Genesis Revisited shows, in 2014 we're extending both the dates and the concept. We'll launch into a full Genesis set with favourites from this year such as The Musical Box, Dancing with the Moonlit Knight and Supper's Ready along with the addition of other Genesis classics which are often requested and the audiences deserve to hear... I'm really excited about this!"
New live material for the Genesis Extended Tour will include performances of “Squonk” from Trick of the Tail”, “Lilywhite Lilith” from The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway, and “The Knife” from Trespass.
