Review of "Blink Of An Eye" by Metal Abyss

Enchant is one of the secret treasures of prog rock. I really don't know why they don't have met much more success, rather remain "hidden". Anyway, I think that this CD can be a breakthrough for them, as it might be their best release so far (I think this is their 6th album), even if I am still stuck with "Blueprint of the World". For those who are not familiar with their music, I can tell you that they play modern prog rock. For those who still didn't get the point, imagine a mixture of Marillion, Spock's Beard, Arena embellished with Genesis and Soul Cages. However Enchant have created their own musical stigma, so that one who has listened to one of their albums can definitely recognize them at once in the future...it is this feeling in the guitars, the all around melancholy of their music and of course the voice...In this new album they haven't changed their style, neither present anything really new. However, it seems that they just wrote some of their best songs ever. As a matter of fact the songs here seem to be more complete, better structured with clear beginning-middle-ending. In short they are much more substantial. Don't ask me to propose a couple of songs. You have to listen to the whole album to understand it and get into its meaning...as happens with most prog releases after all. Just open your ears.
