In 2014 Overhaul self-released an EP called ‘DAYBREAK’. Only a few months later the song 'Three Judges', taken off this EP, appeared on the first physical edition of internationally renowned platform Progstravaganza, published by Prog Sphere. It brought the band the following critical acclaim: "With OVERHAUL, we are amazed by the diversity of the sound canvas that ranges from symphonic pop to heavy prog and to traditional hard rock and Chopin-like piano,"—Lucas Biela on progachives.com.
But now is three years later, and the band’s style has matured—away from the Dream Theater-esque flamboyance that was evident on ‘Daybreak’. Both instrumentally and lyrically the songs sound darker en sulkier, and the emphasis lies more on compelling song structures that are honest and convincing. “If you compare our demo EP with ‘Notes…’, then taking three years for this new release suddenly doesn’t seem so long; we needed the time to find our identity as a band, and to allow the new material to grow into that direction,” states vocalist Samuel.
