Enchant's origins reach back to the end of the 1980s when the band was known as Mae Dae. Steve Rothery was a guest musician and helped produce Enchant's debut album, A Blueprint of the World, in England in 1993. A small German label had secured the rights for this album. The band toured Europe in 1993, and the album was later re-released with an extended booklet and a second disc with demos from their first album.
Wounded (1996) helped them attract new fans. Time Lost (1997) was released for a tour with Dream Theater. It had four new tracks and previously unreleased material. Break (1998) was promoted live on stage with Spock's Beard and later with Marillion. These albums marked a departure from their first album.
Juggling 9 Or Dropping 10 was released in 2000. Two band members left after the album was finished. Blink of an Eye and Tug of War reinforced the band's status as a serious band. These albums opened the band's road for touring in Germany together with Spock's Beard and the California Guitar Trio. Their live album, Live at Last was released as a double CD and a double DVD set, with over 20 songs some dating back to 1993.
The band, after a long break have recorded a new album titled The Great Divide which was released 9/29/2014.
