The band was created in the summer of 1988 around Þorvaldur Bjarni Þorvaldsson, a renowned vocalist, guitarist, and record producer in Iceland. In the beginning, all 3 members were part of local bands and studying at the Reykjavík College of Music in May 1989. "Sameiginlegt" was the name of their first demo, which made it onto the first studio album, Betra En Nokkuð Annað…
Steve Hackett is best known as the guitarist with Genesis during their best years as both a progressive and commercial band, across ten albums of their history.
Some remember his past as an art rock / prog musician with Spectral Mornings and other great records – and sundry fine rock and prog side projects. Now he indulges in his love for classical music. On Feb 11  his Tribute to his guitar role models was published. On this album Steve Hackett plays nothing but nylon guitar. Pure acoustic guitar, as it were. Light acoustic guitar sounds lead the listener straightaway into the world of classical guitar music.
Highly Strung is the sixth solo album from former Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett. "Cell 151" was a minor hit from the album, and charted in Great Britain. Added to Hackett's band was drummer Ian Mosley, who would join Marillion in 1984.
Wolflight is Steve's first original solo studio album since Beyond The Shrouded Horizon in 2011. Primal and orchestral, it retains the Hackett trademark as electric guitar runs right the way through with a regular sprinkling of acoustic. The concept behind it is a new unexplored chapter in the guitarist's career.
Good to see that the Genesis camp is still good for some unexpected surprises. One of them was released in summer 2005. It is the Spectral Mornings DVD which features concert of Steve’s that was recorded for TV broadcast back in 1978. It is the more surprising because Genesis and its (former) members are not exactly known for releasing archived video material from the 70s. It is therefore hardly surprising that the initiative for this release was not taken by Hackett or his label, but by the TV station that was responsible for the recording. Apparently they remembered that Genesis’ former guitarist still commands a respectable fan base.
