Biography

There are a number of artists with the name TEN.

1) TEN, Manchester, UK, ( Melodic/Hard Rock )

TEN are a British melodic rock/hard rock band which was formed in 1995 by vocalist Gary Hughes, ( as a natural progression from his two previous solo albums ), and guitarist Vinny Burns. Later added guitarist Aziz Ibrihim and a rhythm section of bassist Shelley and drummer Greg Morgan.

The debut album was crafted by the late producer Mike Stone. It was released in May 1996 selling 20’000 copies in Japan where the group immediately gained a rabid following.

This set the wheels in motion for the recording of a second album, ‘In The Name Of The Rose’, that was released later the same year and began work on a third album in 1997.

A year ending trek to Japan resulted in the group’s Japanese label, Zero Corporation, releasing a double live package in early 1998.

The third album, The Robe, was a huge step forward in the sound of TEN, leading strongly towards epic and majestic atmospheres and influences. Songs like the title track, “Arcadia” and “Ten Fathoms Deep” are considered to be amongst the best expressions of the British hard rock of the 90’s.

However, their major commercial success - especially in Europe - came with their following album Spellbound, in 1999. The record had all the elements which decreed the vast success of TEN within the hard rock fans: melody and class, but also power and epic atmospheres, inherited by the tradition of the British bands of the 70’s such as Rainbow, Thin Lizzy and UFO.

    Seriously, if any band is under-listened, it's Ten. They're so fucking good I don't care that they're slow >.<

    Great to re-find them here. The track - I Will Wait for You is a fantastic one too.

    Ten is without a doubt the best melodic rock band I've heard. I'm so glad I found out about them. Really loving Stormwarning and Twilight Chronicles currently :)

    As much as I love you guys (and I truly do), I have to put some force into listening the Stormwarning till the end. This one is SO far apart from Ten old-self that it drags me down to sleep, instead daydream, as that's what I usually do listening to Ten. Before.
