Craft was symphonic progressive trio including ex-Enid members William Gilmour (keyboards) and Martin Russell (bass & keyboards).
The trio was complete by Grant McKay Gilmour (drums & percussion).

In 1984 they released an instrumental LP simply called Craft, an album which represents the band’s only output.

Babylon was a Symphonic Progband from Florida USA, which was active somewhere in the mid of the seventies. The band was formed by:

Rick Leonard on bass, bass pedals & vocals
Doroccus on keyboards & lead vocals
Rodney Best on drums & percussion
J. David Boyko on guitars
G.W. Chambers on keyboards & vocals

They recorded only one self-titled album in 1978. The album contained four tracks:

1. The Mote In God's Eye (7:00)
2. Before The Fall (10:54)
3. Dreamfish (9:12)
4. Cathedral Of The Mary Ruin (7:38)

They music they made is hard rockish with influences of early Genesis. The album was released on CD in 1999 by Syn-phonic. Somewhere early 2000, Syn-phonic also released two livealbums, but unfortunately the soundquality of the original recordings was poor.

The original vinyl release belongs to my personal collection.

Zenit (Switzerland) / Re: Zenit - Biography
« Last post by ObiwanKenomi on July 17, 2016, 05:06:41 PM »
The first brick of Zenit is layed in 1995 when Ivo and Gigio were asked by Clepsydra to replace Pietro and Phil for a small tour. There's an immediate harmony between Gigio, Ivo and Andy. At the end of that tour the three part with a promise: do some music project together some day.

Early 1998 Andy, Gigio and Ivo meet again and start playing together as a trio. Soon they start reviewing Ivo's  collection of tapes filled with two decades of ideas and demos. The step to hire a guitar player and a singer got immediate urgency.

With one phone call Ivo pulled 1999 Frank into the adventure since he knew fifty percent of the selected material as he played with Ivo in former local line ups abou a decade earlier.

The singer selection was a bit harder. At last Lorenzo immediately impressed the founder trio with his singing skills and musical experience.

The work for the album starts immediately. Without time pressure or any schedule the tracks are selected and arranged during the following 15 months. At that time the chosen band name was Zenith (with the "h" at the end) wich was the name of one of the very fist bands of Ivo.

The band name change to Zenit was decided because a Duch band announced being recording their first album under the name "Zenith".

The demo recordings give the five enought confidence to book the recording studio for summer/fall 2000. The album is recorded and mixed in two weeks time at Poyel Studios in Lugano (Switzerland) and mastered in November at Powerplay Studios.

Raffaello Ossola takes care of the cover and artwork while the band is taking a little rest with the families over christmas time. In Juanuary 2001 the album goes into production and is scheduled to be released February 26.

Frank leaves the band in late 2002 and Luigi Biamino joins the band and starts immediately to catch up the work for the second album.

After a succsessful appearance at the ProgSol 2003 festival, the band starts the final recordings for the second album "Surender".
