Overhaul releases lead single 'Blue Box'!
« on: February 21, 2017, 07:33:18 AM »
I wasn't exactly sure whether I should make a full thread about this, because I'm somewhat modest, but the excitement is taking over. I'm the guitarist in a progressive/alternative metal band and we're releasing our debut album 'Notes by an Unstable Muser' in Spring this year.The album is a huge stylistic and qualitative improvement over the demo EP 'Daybreak' we released in 2014 (which included a cover of DT's 'Overture 1928 / Strange Deja-Vu') and the live album we released the following year.

To celebrate the upcoming release, we have shot a video-clip for the lead-single BLUE BOX, which we released today!! :D

You can watch the videoclip here: http://www.overhaul.band/BlueBox
Or listen to the song on Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/album/79oAXdlco2flALbDpG02vi


And please, if you like what you hear, let me know and let your friends know as well!
We're posting regular updates on our Facebook page, so you can follow us there to know all about the album release.

I listened to Blue Box twice, it's not bad man! I feel like I hear a lot of Leprous/Pain of Salvation influence

Singer has improved greatly IMO, I wasn't a big fan of him on the live in amsterdam stuff but I like him here
I recoil from the blast, and look around me though, neither friend nor foe, empty as a hole and ever-depleting

I haven't heard the live, but this new song is great! I listened the demo a year ago or more and I will revisit it when I have time, but to me it seems almost a different band from what I remember.
Watch the POLLS/SURVIVOR section for the Pain Of Salvation survivor!!

Thanks very much for the replies! I too believe we really took a huge step towards professionalisation in sound and song-writing. The new album (all 10 tracks) are far more mature than the material on the demo EP. The single 'Blue Box' is an example of that, but I'd like to say that the rest of the album will feature quite some different things altogether! :D

Is the lyric line with the title a Doctor Who referense?

I really enjoyed the song. The groove was pretty cool, and I really liked the main keyboard patch. It felt pretty Leprous-y in parts, and just like The Congregation, it'd probably be rather stale if the entire album sounds like that, but you've said that it's a quite varied affair, so I'm definitely looking forward to listening to it. :tup

Man, you've definitely come a way since Daybreak (which was cool, but a lot less mature than Blue Box). Keep it up.

Also great video.

Wow, this was pretty good. I agree about PoS/Leprous influences, and it also reminded me of Initiate by Haken because of that steady progressive beat or rhythm or whatever it's called throughout the song.

If you're going to release the physical copies of the album, I think I will buy one. I don't think I'm ready to pay shipping costs though (those always suck), so if there are physical copies, save one for me. I hope we'll meet before Ayreon Universe show, so I will be able to get it directly from you. :P Anyway, I'm looking forward to hear the whole thing now!

Thanks! And I can definitely assure you that the rest of the album is indeed quite varied in style. We were definitely going for a 'modern' prog approach, so that's what you'll hear. Laprous has definitely been an influence on us, but we're really not only copying The Congregation ;)

And thank you as well! We're definitely going to meet up before the Ayreon show, even if you don't know it yet. There's only going to be one chance in the near feature that many DTF buddies are going to be together this close to where I live, so absolutely!

Neat. Fun detail.

Anyways, have listened to the song a few times and enjoy it. I'll echo the above statement in saying that I'll check out the album once it drops.
