Overmars

Add Overmars to the growing list of bands in the so-called atmospheric hardcore world founded by Neurosis, Isis, and the like. Most of these bands have similar styles, at least passing resemblances to each other, while still maintaining some uniqueness, and Overmars was no different than that, as they did the ambient-passages-building-to-crushing-chords thing as well as anyone, with the vocals somewhat harsher than others in the field. At times it gets pretty scary, such as “Buccolision/The Mistaken one”, where some truly tortured female vocals alongside a simple, yet haunting piano line adds up to a disturbing listen. It would be a disservice to simply label these guys the French Neurosis, but at least on the surface that gives one an idea of where this crew was headed.
