The Watch

Profile:
Art/progressive rock band from Milan, Italy.

Formed in 1997 under the name 'The Night Watch' - Since 2000 adopted the shortened name 'The Watch'.
Simone ROSSETTI, the charismatic front man of THE NIGHT WATCH, continues his impressive work in the new band The WATCH, but he's the only connection between the two bands. The NIGHT WATCH also was featured with one song on "The Reading Room" (2000) album and than they quit. Simone is an great vocalist/flautist and his voice is very similar to Peter GABRIEL and so the sound on the new album is again like early GENESIS. There are some reminiscences to MARILLION, SPOCK'S BEARD and ÄNGLAGARD too.

The WATCH's debut album "Ghost" sounds so much like GENESIS. The music is very similar to Peter GABRIEL-era GENESIS with lots of magnificient bombastic Mellotron. Folks, this is a total job that sounds like outtakes between "Nursery Crime" and "Selling England By The Pound". This is "the best album GENESIS never made"! Now we can add another classic to the list. A band to Watch out for!
