Marillion are an English rock band, formed in England, in 1979. They are known as the band that invented the "New Wave of Progressive Rock". Their recorded studio output since 1982 is composed of seventeen albums generally regarded in two distinct eras, delineated by the departure of original frontman Fish in late 1988, and the subsequent arrival of replacement Steve Hogarth in early 1989. Their original sound (with Fish on vocals) is best described as guitar and keyboard led progressive rock or neo-prog, and would be sometimes compared with Gabriel-era Genesis. Lead singer Fish was also often compared with Gabriel due to his early vocal style and theatrical stage performances. Read more here
