OVERTURES: "Entering The Maze"
Label: Sleaszy Rider Records 2013
Review by Martien Koolen
Entering The Maze is the third album of Italian power metal band Overtures and it contains 10 new tracks and the album was mastered by Sascha Paeth (Edguy, Kamelot). The album is filled with power metal melodies galore, great guitar riffs, hooks and solos and the voice of singer Michele Guatoli is quite enhoyable. The album opens with a song called The Maze and it is a great powerful opening of this album.
Further highlights are songs like Savior (catchy guitar riff), Empty Trails (very melodic), Consequences (very powerful) and Of Nightmares whihch is again very catchy and melodic. But Overtures saves the best for last with the amazing epic song The Oracle, which clocks over 9 minutes. That song is diverse and shows that these guys can play and write a good power metal song which should be played at maximum volume to fully enjoy it!! All in all I have to say that Overtures has made a very great leap forward in their musical career as this album is really great stuff. Enjoy!!
