Enchant biography
Symphonic Prog Metal band with strong musicianship and very well elaborate compositions. Racing guitar riffs, atmospheric keyboards, driving bass lines, brilliant rhythms and the warm, clear voice of singer Ted LEONARD. These are just some of the intregral ingredients that play a prominent part in the sound of ENCHANT. They remind of DREAM THEATER, FATES WARNING, MARILLION, RUSH, SHADOW GALLERY, STYX & YES, and vocals in the style of KANSAS.

"Break" and "Juggling 9 Or Dropping 10" proved to be their most accomplished record to date. Soaring vocals, powerful melodies and stellar musicianship are once again evident in their abundance on these excellent albums. On the heals of 2002's "Blink Of An Eye" comes 2003"s "Tug Of War". With this album, the band continues to morph and create themselves into progressive monster, but enough to show progress and maybe pick up new fans along the way. The next album could be the one where this band put out their classic. Like a fine wine, they are proving that with age they just keep getting better. ENCHANT is one of the American Prog metal bands to come out of the 90s, and their future promises greatness.

Review by b_olariu
Prog Reviewer

3 stars Enchant's last album to date from 2003 - Tug of war brings nothing new in their sound, is constructed on same coordonates as their previous works, more like their last 2-3 albums. While far from bad, Tug of war is little less intresting then let's say their first one and Blink of an eye or Juggling 9. The arrangements are as always tight and guitar has an important role here, pounding drums, great vocal lines from Leonard, crunchy bass and some sporadicaly but very well integrated in this context are the keyboards like on top notch instrumental Progtology - this pieces simply kick ass among their best tunes in the whole career. Another highlight is the opening tracl Sinking sand, typical Enchant in sound but so well wriiten with catchy parts coming from Dougg Ott. All in all this as the same calibre as Break, not as inventive as A blue print of the world or Juggling 9 my fav from them, but still pretty much ok with some great moments in parts. Definetly good and for that 3 stars rounded up half a star for the mentioned two pieces who really smoke.

4 stars Enchant is without hesitation one of my fav bands ever, I have a soft spot for their music since I've dicovered them way back in 1998 through Break album, since then I've collecting all their albums + a DVD. First album released in 1993 in some parts appear as 1995 A blue print of the world is definetly among their best works for sure. The album was produced by famous guitarist from Marillion Steve Rothery living his guitar mark on couple of pieces aswell, all the album is something between Rush (Presto era) with some hints from Marillion (Holidays in Eden era) here and there, heavy prog meets melodical lines of neo prog style. Some top notch musicianship right from the debut, tight and very well performed, pieces like Oasis, instrumental Mae Dae or Nighttime Sky are absolutly among best they ever done. The incredibly strong voice of Ted Leonard, one of the first class voices in prog in last couple of decades (must be heared aswell his voice on Thought Chamber - Angular Perceptions - really fabulous) in combination with Doug Ott's great riffs and solos makes from this album a real solid one in this field. A fantastic first step in prog circles that stood the test of time very well. A recommended one, among their best works for sure. Easy 4 stars.

4 stars What a real treat for fans as I am is this Live at last issued on DVD in 2005 at Insideout label. A good amount of pieces here, is like a best of, all clocking around 4 hours, imagine that. I'm a big fan of Enchant since thay released Break my first contact with their sound and since then I'm looking constantly on what they offer. Well, the musicianship on this DVD is high class, the band is tight and damn confident in their posibilities. Ted Leonard is one hell of a great vocalist and is showing on every pieces here and Doug Ott really know to handle the guita to creat something memorable and intresting in same time. Under Fire is one perfect example of how tight is Enchant live, absolutly kick ass. So, if you don't have this DVD get it worth every second. Enchant is one of my fav bands ever and this live proves that they are among the best in bussines even they kinda slow down a bit after Tug of war relased a decade ago. But, they are preparing for a new album soon as their web page said. 4 star for sure one hell of a great DVD.

Review by kev rowland

4 stars Enchant are back with their seventh album, and yet again show that when it comes to prog rock with the heavy use of guitar they are one of the best around. When I saw them support Spock's Beard at the Astoria I was extremely impressed, and having followed their career with interest since reviewing their debut album some eleven years ago I was pleased to be able to listen to the new album. This is prog rock that also has a foot firmly in the melodic rock camp, with guitarist Doug Ott providing the foundation for the band while Ted Leonard has much more in common with rock frontmen than most prog singers.

The result is an album that is packed full of melodies and hooks, yet also has room for time changes and dramatic shifts in musical direction. It opens with "Sinking Sand", a song that contains just what every melodic rock fans wants in great harmonies, strong tunes and arrangements and enough space and drama for all. This standard is carried all of the way through the album which closes with the longest number, "Comatose". This starts off gently enough with just Ted and piano but ever so slowly and gradually the tension builds, and the rest of the band come in. The passion keeps building and there is the feeling of a full on band just straining to be released.

One of the joys of Enchant is that they are so easy to listen to and enjoy, even on first hearing. Yet another strong album to add to their canon.

Review by kev rowland
Special Collaborator Crossover Team

4 stars I can still remember how impressed I was when I heard the debut Enchant album, 'A Blueprint For The World' but that was many years ago now and as I had also been suitably impressed by their last album 'Juggling 9 Or Dropping 10' I was intrigued to see what their sixth studio album would bring. The band is built around the song-writing and guitar playing of Doug Ott and the wonderful vocals of Ted Leonard. Put them together with bassist Ed Platt and new drummer Sean Flanegan and the result is Spock's Beard meeting Kansas and an album that is superb.

It is very American, but as they are then that should be okay, and this is a highly-crafted rock album that has almost as many influences in the AOR field as it does in the prog scene. It is not prog metal in the same vein as Threshold, more a prog rock act with the emphasis on rock. There are plenty of hooks and melodies, along with strong soaring vocals that are very reminiscent of Steve Walsh (no bad thing) or Steve Perry.

It is an album that all prog fans that enjoy melodic music to listen to and enjoy (as opposed to some of the cutting edge stuff that is like having teeth pulled) should discover immediately if not sooner.

Review by b_olariu
Prog Reviewer

3 stars Enchant is one of my fav bands ever, since I've hered them for the first time more then 10 years ago I was instantly hooked on their music. I have a soft spot for them and no one gonna change that even some of their albums like this one Break are not so excellent like I considered top notch and their best from the catalogu Juggling 9 or dropping 10 and Blink of an eye. Break from 1998 is an album in good Enchant tradition, the whole musical spectrum band developed over the years and aswell will keep on next releases is here. Heavy prog well performed with tight musicianship, maybe here is less captivating moments and inspired passages as on next albums. The voice is ok, Ted leonard has a clean perfect tone of voice for such music, the instrumental parts are ok most of the time, the songwritting is littless convinceing here, but not bad at all. The best piece is My enemy , one of the best pieces Enchant ever created with excellent interludes between guitar and keyboards and very worthy vocal parts. Definetly desearves from me 3 stars, good but nothing really special like next two albums who are absolutly the peak of their career and among the best albums in that period. Enchant remain very consistent band over the years with more then 20 years in this field and respectable albums. This year they will release a new album after more then a decade pause. Can't wait. So, 3 stars, good, fans of Tiles, at some point Rush can listen to this band worth every album.

A Blueprint Of The World
Enchant Heavy Prog

Review by Warthur
Prog Reviewer

3 stars Enchant's debut album was produced with a little help here and there from Marillion's Steve Rothery, and that's a fairly clear indication of what to expect here - an American answer to Marillion, with their sound drawn mainly from the period ranging from Clutching at Straws to the proggier parts of Holidays in Eden (think Splintering Heart). Despite the aid of Rothery behind the producer's desk for some of the sessions, overall the album has a rather thin sound and the mix is kind of off - though that said, the 2CD reissue (which I haven't heard) may have addressed this issue. If you can get past that, the band offer a competent rendition of neo-prog material which won't win any awards for originality but is broadly pleasing to the ear.

Juggling 9 or Dropping 10
Enchant Heavy Prog

Review by Tapfret
Prog Reviewer

2 stars Juggling 9 or dropping 10?or rating 2?

Sub-genre: Heavy Prog
For Fans of: Porcupine tree, the heavier side of some neo-prog.
Vocal Style: Male, upper mid-range AOR style.
Guitar Style: Chorused, mildly distorted to clean.
Keyboard Style: Varied synthesis. Piano and organ sounds.
Percussion Style: Standard rock kit.
Bass Style: Standard picked rock electric
Other Instruments: None.
You are not likely to enjoy this album if: you are sensitive to "radio" sounds and vocal passages, as I am.



Summary: The first time I listened to this album I was sitting with a friend who said within the first 5 seconds, "Man, this version of Xanadu is way off." Well, it was not a cover of the Rush classic we were listening to, it was the album's opener Paint the Picture. It was amongst the scarce moments of a discernible progressive rock feel. All around this album is the pang of a commercial delivery. The often Glen Frey-ish AOR sounding vocal passages, generic arrangements and dynamically flat mix all paint a mundane, uninteresting picture. Juggling 9 or dropping 10 is progressives analog to convenience store sushi. Here and there are breaks and bridges that hint of a non-commercial complexity, but the sappy pseudo-feeling comes triumphantly riding back in on the next verse or chorus. And it just keeps coming. At 64 minutes the album seems as if it will never end. This is the way of 21st century recording. At least an album like this in the 70's and 80's would round itself off at 45 minutes top. The most complimentary I can be about this release from Enchant is that the musicianship is proficient and the delivery is safe. It's the kind of music you can play in a grocery store to prevent rioting in the aisles.



Final Score: I get this icky "I'm listening to something with a strictly commercial target" feeling all over when I listen to this. There is enough quality musicianship here that it will find fans, as well as avoid relegation to 1 star. This type of album, out of sync and off key would really make it a crime against nature. It was barely saved from the trash heap. I just find myself bored to no end? well, 64 minutes to the end anyway. 2 stars.

Prog Reviewer

4 stars By 2002 Enchant reaches to number 5 album from their career named Blink of an eye release by Insideout label and features same excellent atmosphere and musicnship like on previous album Juggling who was for me a 4 star album. With this one Ennchant remanins in first league in my opinion delivering some fantastic heavy prog not far from Rush or Tiles with some leanings in places with Yes or Dream Theater in some more up tempo moments. The musicianship is top notch, specially the drummer, realy realy great musician Sean Flanegan is his names, and in some moements is absolutly a god on the instrument just check out Monday , Under fire or Invisible. Art rock resemblance in parts with a good doze of artistic complexity tipycal for progressive rock music makes from Enchant a great band not yet fully discovered by many. The voice of Ted Leonard is like a gove on the music, high register but what a pleasent and unique voice he has, great. Tight musicianship, specially on instrumental passages, Prognosis is aswell an instrumental piece entirely where the band shines for sure every second even without the diamond voice of Leonard. Blink of an eye desearves another 4 star album to me like predecesor. Recommended if you are more towards , Rush, Tiles or this type of prog music.

Wounded
Enchant Heavy Prog

Review by Valarius

3 stars After a strong debut showing, Enchant follow up with an album that certainly leaves me feeling a bit 'Wounded'.

With high expectations after the brilliant 'A Blueprint of the World', 'Wounded' fails to live up to the same standard expected from one of the world's most beloved Prog bands. The problem I find with this album is that most of the songs just 'aren't happening'. I wouldn't say they're boring or bland, but there's just no spark to them that gets me truly excited.

As with most Enchant albums, the first song is a true gem, but the rest of the album takes a while for me to digest. Whilst that patience won through the first time around, this time I wasn't as impressed. Besides said first track 'Below Zero', 'Pure' and 'Missing' are some songs worth getting this album for, but besides these three, the rest of the songs are 'good' at best (but at least none of them are 'bad').

There's some fine musicianship, and Ted Leonards vocals are always a joy to hear, but overall this album can only be summed up as 'good, but non-essential'.
