'Zumanthum'' is a great compilation of inspired soundscapes
First band that comes to mind are 70's KING CRIMSON,due to
some complicated guitar passages and a few extreme
Then it's the heavy use of piano for creating nice interplays in a complex way,reminding a bit of E.L.P.,and afterwards come some rather heavy guitar parts in the vein of DREAM THEATER.
Synths are used often to create spacey atmospheres,not unlike
PINK FLOYD,while the vocals are quite harsh,resembling more to alternative rock bands that progressive ones.
The whole result is absolutely satisfying,a great release with nice instrumental parts,intense moods and changing tempos.
OVERHEAD are a band built for progressive rock's present and future.
