The Watch is a 5-piece band from Milan, Italy. Born from the ashes of The Night Watch, they began to work in a more professional way with the release of Ghost in 2001, the album that introduced them to prog audiences. Today, The Watch are a well-known act in the prog community and are definitely appreciated.
Their music is inspired by artists of the 70's, primarily early Genesis, owing to an incredible similarity between Simone Rossetti's vocals and those of a younger Peter Gabriel. Despite this similarity, however, the band has its own style, combining classical prog atmospheres with a sprinkling of modernity.
During interviews, the guys are often asked how they manage to attain such a high production level both in-studio and on stage. They like to say that they simply try to compose nice songs and nothing more.
