POWER PROG is pleased to announce the signing of the highly talented Russian modern progressive power metal outfit OVERWIND. The first common goal is the worldwide release of their second album «Level Complete» at December 11, 2015 as Audio-CD, download card, digital download and stream.
OVERWIND was founded in Krasnodar in autumn 2013, where the four experienced musicians Anton Emelyanov (Guitar), Sergey Krasnozhen (Drums), Alexander Chumakov (Vocals) and Misha Gigava (Bass) begun to compose and write material for their debut album. It should be metal in a modern, powerful and progressive garment, their first work «Illustrator was quickly in the box and was already released in mid 2014. Offering exceptional reviews and ratings and through live performances, the guys quickly made a national name which stands for high-quality metal with a twist.
