There's growing talk in the UK and Europe about new symphonic band The Gift, who seem to have come out of nowhere. Their debut album 'Awake and Dreaming' blew me away recently, like a mixture of old Genesis, Floyd and modern hard rock. Who else has heard it, and what do you think?

We are busy to add The Gift to Prog Archives, I have reviewed it for a Dutch progrock site and GekcO will help me with the biography in order to get this outstanding new band on this site. Their music on the CD Awake & Dreaming (two 'epics') is varied, dynamic and loaded with great work on keyboard and guitar, highly recommended Thumbs Up

Hi Erik. What do you know about live plans, if any? They sound like an awesome stage prospect. I was thinking they sound similar to IZZ and Echolyn in places; kind of prog with 'hooks' and really marked atmosphere changes.

I believe they have a Myspace page but as yet, no website.
Why don't you just contact Malc at Cyclops-GFT and ask him about live appearances.

The Gift have been added to PA, so please review them!

Also, if someone can supply us (the Discographies Edition Team or Symphonic Team) with the full track timings, it would be appreciated.

Any feedback on the biography would also be useful.  I am happy to make any edits. 

The Cyclops website has some MP3 samples too, so check them out, as well as their MySpace page.

Thanks.  I can't edit the track timings, but I'll get someone to do it for me.  All I know is the first suite is about 45 minutes and the second is about 30.
