Overhead plays melodic and thematic progressive rock that varies from gentle ambient atmospheres via more traditional rock to heavier moments.
Overhead's first album 'Zumanthum' was released in 2002 by Mellow Records. The second album 'Metaepitome' was released in 2005 by Musea and was very well received around the world. The album broadened Overhead's style and was a big step forward from the debut. Metaepitome received excellent reviews and was the album of the month in various magazines and webzines and received airplay on many radios worldwide.
Overhead has played live in rock-clubs and festivals around Europe such as the 9th Eclipsed Festival (Germany), ProgResiste Convention (Belgium), Prog'Sud (France), Slottsskogen Goes Progressive (Sweden), pROCKfest (Germany) and Montreux Prog Nights (Switzerland). All these shows were received fantastically and the band toured more.
The awaited third album titled 'And We're Not Here After All' was released in 2008 by Musea. The album is a very personal and introspective trip into the most basic of human instincts, the will to live. Needless to say, it has its share of ecstatic highs and desperate lows, all neatly wrapped up in a single albumful of atmospheric rock.
In February of 2009 the band headed to Poland to play at the Prog Rock 2009 festival where Overhead's first DVD 'Live After All' was recorded. The DVD will be released in June of 2009 by the Polish Metal Mind. The band further supported the new album by touring more in April of 2009 playing very successful shows. The autumn of 2009 also marks the 10th year anniversary of Overhead.
Overhead has also participated in three conceptual albums: 'Tuonen Tytär - A Tribute To Finnish Progressive' (2000, Mellow Records), 'Kalevala - A Finnish Progressive Epic' (2003, Musea) and 'Tuonen Tytär 2' (2009, Musea).
