ENZIGN ‘Cast The First Stone’ (Z Records) (2003)

A new project formed around Ten guitarist John Halliwell, who links-up with vocalist/bass player Mark Sumner and drummer Matt Pearce. Fans of Ten and hair metal era Whitesnake will lap this up. Full of crunching riffs, with the epic opener ‘Cast the First Stone’ being a prime example. Soaring vocals from Mark Sumner (who sings in the classic rock mould of Ten’s Gary Hughes and Neville MacDonald of Skin) and shredding riffs supplied by John Halliwell, after a subdued atmospheric keyboard start. ‘Midnight’ fairly rumbles along - very Ten in style. Subject matter is typical mythical fare like ‘Keepers of the Kingdom’ and ‘Lararus’ (which features the best guitar soloing on the album).

Not a bad album at all, although it tends to lack a bit of variety in song tempo but it still stands up to repeated plays. John Halliwell’s chunky riffing is an obvious highlight and something that fans of Ten will immediately enjoy.

*** OK, approach with caution unless you are a fan |
** Instant bargain bin fodder | * Ugly. Just ugly
