Not to be confused with OVERTURE from Karlskoga.

OVERTURE was founded by pianist Clarence Öfwerman in late 70's and included Mats Ström (vocals), Mats Reiniusson (bass and guitar), Bengt Lundberg (guitar and vocals) and Hans Alsing (drums). In the beginning the band played symphonic / progressive rock. The sound changed in the early 80's to more commercial pop/rock. OVERTURE released a single and a full-lenght album before disbanding. Some live cassettes also exist (from the Radio program Tonkraft 24/1-1979 etc) incl songs such as "Vargflock", "Vila I Frid", "Fram Tills Tiden Står Still", "Tusen Segel", "Alexander Den Store"..
