Jeff Wayne with The Eve of the War. From his debut album Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of the War of the Worlds (1978).

The voice at the beginning is actor Richard Burton. The singer is Justin Hayward from The Moody Blues. As for the composer, Jeff Wayne, in his youth he was apparently so smitten by H.G. Wells's book that he decided to make a concept album of it.

Her's with What Once Was.

Her's was an English indie rock band from Liverpool, England, consisting of Stephen Fitzpatrick (vocals, guitar) and Audun Laading (bass guitar, backing vocals). Fitzpatrick was also a drummer, but they decided to simply use a drum machine instead. Her's formed in 2015 and they had only one full-length album, released in August 2018. Tragically, the duo was killed, along with their tour manager Trevor Engelbrektson, in a horrific head-on car crash and subsequent fire in Arizona on March 27, 2019. A very tragic loss, given the obvious talent of the duo. RIP and God bless.

Hat tip OutlawDaughter.

Good night.
