Combining a heavy sound reminding of bands like Leprous and Meshuggah, Overhaul combines aggression with romanticism and rhythmical complexity with melancholy. Through various shifts in style the band has built an eclectic repertoire that is collected on their debut album ‘NOTES BY AN UNSTABLE MUSER’, released in 2017. The record sets Overhaul apart from other bands in the genre, by displaying a notion of romanticism that is often lacking in other progressive metal acts.
In 2014 Overhaul self-released an EP called ‘DAYBREAK’. Only a few months later the song 'Three Judges', taken off this EP, appeared on the first physical edition of internationally renowned platform Progstravaganza, published by Prog Sphere. It brought the band the following critical acclaim: "With OVERHAUL, we are amazed by the diversity of the sound canvas that ranges from symphonic pop to heavy prog and to traditional hard rock and Chopin-like piano,"—Lucas Biela on progachives.com.
Since their first demo EP 'Daybreak' the band’s style has matured—away from the Dream Theater-esque flamboyance and into a darker musical world. Both instrumentally and lyrically the songs sound darker and sulkier, and the emphasis lies more on compelling song structures that are honest and convincing. “If you compare our demo EP with ‘Notes…’, then taking three years for this new release suddenly doesn’t seem so long; we needed the time to find our identity as a band, and to allow the new material to grow into that direction,” states vocalist Samuel.
But now is 2019, and the band is set to release their second full-length album in 2020. The first single, 'Saudade', builds on the themes of their debut album, and further crystallises their unique style.
New gigs will be announced shortly.
