4 stars I downloaded this album half a year ago from their website, and was very impressed by the sheer musicality of these guys, unfortunatly I wasn't able to buy the album yet, I'm still waiting for the original (problems with delivery). And I desperitly want it, for it's definetly a worthwile adition to any prog collection.

Overhead is a Finnish collective, and this is their stunning debut. They seem to be influenced by bands as Pink Floyd, Yes, Marillion (both Hogarth and Fish era), Alternative rock, and hard rock (hence they are labelled Art rock). Great melodic music, with warm atmospheric keyboards and bass, powerfull guitar solo's reminescent of some Steve Rothery/David Gilmour lines.

Beginning To End. (20:20) is a five part suite, beginning with a great guitar solo, great textures and symphonic pieces, awsome hypnothising music. Just listen to it and let it amaze you. 2. Asleep pt. 2 - Awake (8:51) Great melodic rock song with nice piano melodies 3. Confessions of The Grim Reaper (8:24) Beautifull song, warm dark melodies swirling through, nice flute, greatly sung and a great guitarsolo at the end. beatifull.

4. Wasteland (5:00) Instrumental, dark ambient melodies, not really great. 5. Zumanthum (13:45) The title track of the album, and the most heavy song on it. Starting instrumental, very rhythmic, great keyboards, awsome.

Zumanthum is a wonderfull album, made by an amazing band, and I like it a lot. The new album "Metaepitome" is due out in march, and I'm really looking forward for that release. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, check out the website, and listen to the available downloads, great band.
