about

Album trailer on YouTube: youtu.be/_1Vu7wRh7yc?hd=1

After completing their trilogy, Overhead are back with their long awaited fourth studio album "Of Sun and Moon". A masterpiece delivered with catchy melodies, dynamic beats and set in familiar Classic Rock scenery.
Epic highs and deep lows, the music goes form hypnotically trippy to surgically edgy. Inspired by the perpetual darkness of the Finnish winter and the never ending sunlight of the Finnish summer. Artrock, Progressive Rock and Metal.

Track Name: Lost Inside 2
These days seems we're lost in wanting
in ways we conceal in part
We are to blame for the consequences
It's the way of the world and it's creatures lost inside

The way I would not have noticed
Remains hidden in plain sight
It's the same dream I've seen since childhood
Now the closer you come the further you have to run

We were not awoken
The dream would not expire
The words were softly spoken
For people lost inside
Track Name: Berlin
Motion in the stillness
Looks like I'm waiting so you arrive
See you once again
Oh life is immediate, go forward man
You're living in a foreign land with nothing to defend

Still caught beneath the violence still smouldering underground
Calling to the cities of the world
'till the end of sound fills the air
Is there no one there to block these borders
'till the sundown, 'till the sundown

Invaders reading over the end of file
They ran out of formaldehyde
As spring is closing in
No more favours
Meet me on the other side
If anyone's still left alive see you once again
Track Name: An Afternoon of Sun and Moon
Do say when the forest is in bloom again
Until the path has overgrown it's never too late
On that day, expect it not to matter much
It was bound to happen anyway, so easy to say
In the last days

Blinding my eyes in the sunlight
Waiting for the wave to come along, it's more than that

It's more than just an afternoon
of sun and moon and stars and you
So softly telling me the news
Those summer days are gone too soon

You can tell, no-one believes in honesty
They wondering what your angle is, they struggle to see
No more to say, no profit in this prophecy
Perfection finally achieved, we're human machines
In the last days

For the last time
Blinding my eyes in the sunlight
Track Name: Aftermath
Now the moon is down
the stars are out
the sun has almost left me
Moving up and out to the sound
...to the sound of silence

As the world gets darker
moving lost souls out to sea
Do you believe we would cast it down to the ground
...but the ground wasn't all we...

In the cooling crust
in the falling dust
in the aftermath of the fire
Calling out to us it's the sound ... the sound of silence.

The earth will quieten
satellites fall to the sea
Do you believe we would cast it down to the ground
but the ground wasn't all we...

found there, lost and bewildered
Not too aware
Locked in despair
One day, when all things must end
I wish you could stay
light-years away

After all is lost, any knowledge not written on a rock is devoured
And still unknown to us is the sound, it's the sound of silence
Skies testify to past laughter, who is laughing now indeed
Do you believe
we would cast it down to the ground
but the ground wasn't all we found there

Confess before the end is done
Who decides? what are promises?
Our promise is the water in the waves where he lay

I've found where to weather the storm
Who am I? Am I waiting?
Am I weighed in the waters in the waves where he lay
Waiting!

In the end it's not what was said or not
What was done was what had the power
To dictate to us the sound ... the sound of silence
Track Name: Syriana
She's so jaded and I'm worried
All of the leeches were dropped on the floor
Now they're not there
She isn't coming
I saw the keys to the lock on the door
Now they're not there

Now I'm sorry some people worry
Where have the colours all suddenly gone
Now they're not there
And I feel something coming
When I look at the sun at the dawn
It's just not there

To know insomnia is to sing and dance
So softly, sleep 'till the moment's passed?

'till the end of sound fills the the air
Is there someone calling, is someone there?

Say, no more tears, ad nauseam!

Syriana
Sylvia

Is there someone calling?
Track Name: Last Broadcast
We're flying in machines
but crying in our sleep
Now falling like a stone
I lost the dial tone

As all must come apart
and I'm a broken heart
No more to be abused
It all just seems too soon

Electrified
Or to not let go
To softly say no
Electrified
Like I'm always lost in snow
Gone

It's time that we depart
This is the last broadcast
A flying solid tube
that fire will subsume

And you must be immune
'cause life ends fairly soon
So I was sacrificed
No warning or advice
Track Name: Alive
Here we stand born into a frozen land
In the darkness a northern name to us was given
We're the ones, we had never seen the sun
only night can last as long as you remember

How high above is the never-setting sun
Now the dark has turned to day, a new beginning
Oh man you are alive, finally you realise
Now the war is almost over, light is winning

We're coming alive again, the silence has ended
It's morning, the dawning of everything
Coming in from the cold, the kaamos descending
Tomorrow

From beyond the sea, through the clouds of broken dreams
In machines we fly against the wind
We're falling like ashes in the air
The coffins in the sky, for now, we are descending on this city

There where days, we could never find our way back
Home is where the heart is and so since we departed
It's so sweet to be, by the shores of the eastern sea
So satellite please send this message back home: "We're coming back home"


And it never seems like it's likely or even a certainty
What we're waiting for is never what we're waiting for
Track Name: Angels and Demons
If you had heard the answer
you would know every question
is an answer to a question
that's the answer, now you know

Everything is being repeated
but the repetition is a repetition of the feeling
that everything just keeps repeating

Angels and demons made more food and dance
to separate my mind
Now is the season
for all things to die
This is not goodbye

There are things I can not see
but I can feel them all around me
Staring at the universe
the universe is staring back at me

I hear the demon laugh the angels crying
The world's much larger and much smaller than it seems
