Karibow, neo-progressive melodic rock, with shades of Marillion and Saga passionate songs performed in true crossover style, reflecting AOR giants such as Toto, Journey and Asia, blending guitar riffs, hooks, keyboards and drums, and all overlaid by the haunting vocals of lead singer and band frontman Oliver Rüsing.
