OVERSENSE: Egomania out now
On September 17th 2021, the curtain has fallen for OVERSENSE‘s brand-new sophomore album “Egomania” and now one of the most emerging bands the European metal scene has to offer holds up its distorted reflection to the world.
Thematically perfectly fitting to the ongoing global political chaos, Fridays for Future and the current social media madness, it zeroes in on e.g. faceless fashion and beauty influencers without rhyme or reason with its eleven songs, skillfully packed in brilliant, majestic and catchy modern Melodic Metal anthems.
Thereby, OVERSENSE has stylistically evolved and captivate with a more modern, harder sound that fascinates with musical experiments. This is shown not least by the three already released singles along with their accompanying music videos.
The social media critical “Be” (feat. Herma Sick) as well as the brutally churning serial killer epic “Love“, about the youth of the murderous Mr. Mackie, were both imposingly staged by director Mirko Witzki (Caliban, Any Given Day, Emil Bulls) and Andy Pilkington of ‘Very Metal Art’ (Orden Ogan, Judas Priest, Powerwolf) produced the fantastic, King Midas-inspired lyric video for the single “The Longing“, which deals with the never-ending greed of humanity and its omnipotent dissatisfaction.
The band around the charismatic frontman Danny Meyer, YouTube star guitarist Jasmin ‘Jassy J.’ Pabst, bass player Marco Volpert and drummer Patrick Lippert belongs to the hottest modern melodic metal acts of the last years, not only since the several weeks’ tour with Metal Queen Doro Pesch!
With “Egomania“, the band delivers more than an impressive album, which is now released as a noble Digipak, as a deluxe edition and of course digitally via Dr. Music Records.
The masterpiece has been produced and mixed by bandleader Danny Meyer in his Sunway Studios and refined in the mastering by Miro Rodenberg and Olaf Reitmeier of the Gate Studio (Avantasia, Kamelot, Epica), who were also twisting the knobs on the debut album “The Storyteller”.
The concise as well as great artwork of “Egomania” was masterfully designed by Björn Gooßes (Killustrations), garnished with brilliant band photos by Stephanie Grass (BlackSally).
OVERSENSE creates a unique sound in the form of fat headbanger riffs, filigree solos and melodic anthems with the potential to make a huge impact on the international Metal scene.
Live the band has already proven it several times in front of large audiences, most recently last week at Sinner Rock right before Thundermother.
“Egomania” tops this feeling and takes the listener on a fascinating journey through all facets of powerful modern melodic metal with unique musical highlights.
The first press reviews from the international rock & metal media scene already sound pretty damn positive, as you can read here.
The brand-new OVERSENSE album “Egomania” is a must-hear for every modern melodic metal fan available now at all known digital stores and streaming services.
For the collector’s heart, the album is also released as a six panel digipak CD as well as in the magnificent limited deluxe edition consisting of the digipak with 16-page booklet in a noble box with a USB stick featuring an exclusive piano version of “Love” as MP3, a DIN A2 band poster, a signed autograph card, a postcard as well as stickers.

16.10.2021 DE-Darmstadt, Goldene Krone
23.10.2021 DE-Oberhausen, Resonanzwerk w/ Jaded Heart, Soundclutch
The story of OVERSENSE begins in 2012 when Danny Meyer and Patrick Lippert record their first songs together and make contact with Olaf Reitmeier.
In the following years, the EP “Dreamcatcher” was released, followed by the album “The Storyteller” in 2017 via Dr. Music Records, with which the former line-up gathered excellent international reviews.
The following winter, Jassy J., whose YouTube channel JJ’s One Girl Band now has nearly 275.000 fans around the world, is confirmed as a permanent band member.
After the tour with Doro in winter 2018, the preparations for the second album start. On “Egomania” OVERSENSE manage to refine the strengths of the debut significantly and to reach the next level sound-wise.
The album is a perfect Modern Melodic Metal masterpiece, with which the four musicians will win over both the young metalheads and the veterans of the scene.
OVERSENSE has everything a young band needs. Besides great songs with catchy tunes, especially exceptional talent Jassy J. on guitar and singer as well as songwriter Danny Meyer with his unique voice stand out.
