The Enid are a British progressive rock band founded in 1973 by former Barclay James Harvest collaborator Robert John Godfrey. Other core members have included founding guitarists Steve Stewart and Francis Lickerish, and longstanding drummer Dave Storey. The current lineup consists of keyboardist Robert John Godfrey and guitarist Jason Ducker. The Enid's membership has since undergone several changes, always with Godfrey at the helm
I am always excited to read about other symphonic rock bands of the 70s and when I read about the Enid in Stephen Lambe's book "Citizens of Hope and Glory: The Story of Progressive Rock" I was eager to give them a listen.
This album has an average beat per minute of 69 BPM (slowest/fastest tempos: 0/139 BPM). 2. Death, the Reaper.
The Tower Of Babel The Enid. In the Summer So Dead.
A concept album based on the tarot deck, it features Robert John Godfrey's orchestral keyboards pushing against guitar work that ranges from the sublime to the metallic. the Falling Tower," or the epic "The Last Judgement," where a rhythm based on Ravel's "Bolero" builds into a theme from a Latin mass before soaring to a climax. Really, the closest this band comes to rock as we know it is on "The Devil," where heads get down, but never quite bang. It's well worth noting that the CD version is different from the original vinyl, not only in tracks but even down to re-recording some tracks without some of the original members, which offers a different perspective.
