Oliver Hartmann the German multi-talented vocalist/songwriter/guitarist, now commonly known for his exploits with European Metal Symphonic supergroup Avantasia, has been around a while. I recall his time with power metal outfit At Vance, later his solo works breaking ground in the Melodic Rock arena, specifically his solo debut. He has managed to carve a nice niche for himself and has held to his solo work still providing melodic rock hooks and some firm material. He has now released his 8th studio album titled “Get Over It”. Will, he continued the same roads he had carved out for himself? Let’s take a look.

The melodic Rocker “One Step Behind” sounds like some of Hartmann’s past solo work. Leans more on the Melodic melodies that have become a staple of his past works. A nice chorus provides a cool groove to this tune. The infectious melodic guitar solo in “In Another Life” provides a nice melancholy vibe to the song, the rising chorus proves successful here. The slow churning sounds of “Just Drive” brings a bluesy element to the fold before it rises again and Hartmann sways with a nice and touchy melodic guitar solo. A nice tune midway through the album. Another crafty rockers comes via the final song in “When We Were The Young” ends the album on a high note.

“Get Over It” is a solid record by a veteran of the scene. Even though Oliver’s main gig appears to always be Avantasia now, he manages to still release solo work which should satisfy some of his older fans. His voice is still pretty rangy and the straight-edge rocking grooves featured here are still melodic and full of hooks. What you get from this record is very mature songwriting that doesn’t miss much, most of the songs are catchy and invoke a feel good vibe to them. If you checked out his past works, this fall in line pretty well I think.
