Fromuz - Overlook (2008)

Uzbekistan has a surprisingly good music scene. Fromuz is perhaps the best band from this country.

Overlook is their debut album. It is entirely an instrumental album and it is obvious that all of Dream Theater's albums has found their way to Uzbekistan. Overlook is a collage of various Dream Theater riffs plus a lot of jazz and fusion riffs intertwined with the Dream Theater riffs. A mix of fusion and metal, in other words.

This does not make this the most exciting album around though. But the musicianship is very good and the band showcases their talents on this good album. But exciting ? No. It is nevertheless an album worth checking out.
