One of the Missing

Rated 2/5 (40%) (2 Votes)

Now I've seen everything. Listing 'Bonus Material' on a demo is a level of pretension I had not witnessed until now. Mind-boggling. Overthrone are a US band slogging their way through the barren US scene trying to make a go of it. Categorizing them is a bit hard, as they have Black Metal vocals, but their feel and sound are very much in the Arch Enemy/Dark Tranquility zone. Overall this is a solid release, with "A Desolate Creation" standing out as probably the best song here. Overthrone write good riffs, but not so much when it comes to songs. So the music here is quite enjoyable, but not really memorable, as they don't put the parts together to make really good songs. The rather drab and one-note vocals don't do much to help with that, either. Overthrone have potential, and they have a real flair for cool guitar riffs, they just really need a better vocalist, and they need to cook their songs a bit longer. Promising.
