OVERTORTURE

2013 Comes to an end

New Years Eve is just around the corner. Looking back at the past year, 2013 was a damned good one as far as we are concerned. In January we commited our album debut, At the End the Dead Await, on Apostasy Records to awesome feedback. March saw OVERTORTURE performing live for the very first time, supporting none other than the legendary Hypocrisy.

We were then saddened to bid farewell to departing drummer and founding member Fredrik Widigs, but nevertheless managed to do a short tour of Germany in September, where we played with shitloads of kick-ass bands (including an opening gig for the great Nile, among others), met a bunch of cool people and had a general blast. We have not been resting on our laurels during the fall and early winter however, and you can expect some very exciting news at the start of 2014.

We would now like to thank each and every one who has supported OVERTORTURE during this past year, so to all who bought our album, bought the t-shirts, came to the shows, helped us out in any way or simply spread the word of mouth: THANK YOU and have a great new year!

/Magnus, Joel, Andreas and Jocke

LINE-UP CHANGE

Drummer and founding member Fredrik Widigs has decided to leave OVERTORTURE to focus on other bands and projects. While the rest of us are sad to se him go, we respect his decision with no hard feelings and remain the best of friends. We’d like to thank Fredrik for his contributions to OVERTORTURE and wish him the best in all future endeavours. We now look to the future, which comes to us in the form of blaster extraordinaire Henrik Åberg, known from bands like Sectu, Gates of Ishtar, Mörk Gryning and shitloads of others. In this incarnation OVERTORTURE will continue to spread our particular strain of death metal with unswayed brutality and conviction. It has only just begun!

”It is with a heavy heart that I have decided to leave the drum throne in OVERTORTURE. Even though the decision was hard to make, I felt it was equally necessary. With my busy schedule and conflicting tour plans, it was simply impossible for me to make things work practically. OVERTORTURE needs a drummer that can give the band the time and commitment that it deserves, and I wasn’t that drummer. However, I’m happy to have been a part of the band since the start in 2011 and to have participated on both the debut album ”At The End The Dead Await”, and the successful debut gig in Stockholm together with Hypocrisy. There is no ”bad blood” between me and the band members, and I wish them best of luck in their future endeavors. See you on the road!” – Fredrik
