More information: Joost Maglev has played in many bands and has released music under his own name in a progressive pop vein. He is amazing at Queen-style harmony vocals. Overwrite the Sin is Maglev gone full-on prog, featuring five tracks, the shortest 8:15. Each track emphasizes a different prog sub-style, with allusions to Yes, Queen, Kayak, A.C.T, and maybe Cardiacs (the latter named by Joost as a musical hero). So there is exuberant pomp-prog, Yes grandeur, A Night at the Opera eccentricity, and modern heaviness, always melodic and grand scale. Overwrite the Sin is obviously the product of someone who learned how to write songs first before expanding the arrangements as required by prog.

Line-up:

Joost Maglev - instruments and vocals
