|Omschrijving||Overhead is a Progressive Rock band from Finland
with a recognisable and original sound. After a set
of critically acclaimed albums and DVD‘s, Overhead
are back with their long awaited fifth studio album
The album is lyrically inspired by recent and
current events in the world. The music features
strong and catchy melodies and riffs, dynamic beats
and is delivered with a Classic Rock sound. The
music ranges from Rock, Prog and heavier riffs to
more acoustic atmospheres, so the new album has a
diverse and intense sound. Virtuosic guitar and
drum work, groovy and strong bass lines and deeply
emotional and melodic vocals are the tools to build
the scenic music, where the atmosphere varies from
melancholic to hard-hitting. The band sounds at its
absolute best on this album. Haydenspark combines
the sound of the earlier albums with a new and
exiting, more guitar-driven direction. The album
presents a noticeably more experienced band with
catchy hooks that still remains unpredictable and
exciting at the same time.
Overhead began in 1999 and released a trilogy of
studio albums: Zumanthum (2002), Metaepitome (2005)
and And We‘re Not Here After All (2008). The works,
released by the French Musea, received excellent
reviews, radio play and recognition around the
globe. The success of the albums led to the band
touring in rock-clubs and festivals around Europe.
The venues ranged from smaller clubs to the palace
of The Sun King in Versailles, not forgetting the
legendary Spirit of 66 in Belgium, where Overhead
has been back by popular demand many times. The
work ensured Overhead‘s place on the map and made
it one of Musea‘s best selling artists. In 2009 the
band headed to Poland where Overhead‘s first DVD
Live After All was recorded, released by the Polish
Metal Mind. The band further supported the new
album and DVD with their longest tour yet, playing
very successful shows around Europe celebrating the
10th anniversary of Overhead.
In 2012 Overhead signed with the German Progressive
Promotion Records and released Of Sun and Moon. The
album defined the band‘s sound even further and was
very well received by the fans and critics alike.
The release was followed by more live dates and
Overhead reached new territories playing festivals
in the UK and in Italy for the first time. The show
in Italy was also filmed and released as a DVD.
Now after years of hard work, and closing in on the
band‘s 20-year old mark, Overhead are back with the
new album Haydenspark, sounding better than ever!
