OVERSENSE turn up the amps to 11 with the release of their second single “The Longing” taken from the upcoming Modern Melodic Metal album “Egomania”! In the clip produced by director Andy Pilkington of ‘Very Metal Art’ (Orden Ogan, Judas Priest, Powerwolf), the epic song illuminates the never-ending greed of humanity and its omnipotent dissatisfaction.
After their acclaimed first single “Be” (feat. Herma Sick) and the imposingly staged music video by director Mirko Witzki (Caliban, Any Given Day, Emil Bulls), “The Longing” offers another audiovisual glimpse of the new album, which will be released on September 17, 2021, via Dr. Music Records. With its absolute hit potential, the track, along with the King Midas-inspired lyric video, definitely increases the excitement for the new masterpiece.
Last summer, OVERSENSE thrilled their fans with the successful single “White Wolf” (Quarantine Version) and provided a successful kick-off with their Startnext crowdfunding campaign at the beginning of this year. Now the time has come and the young German Modern Melodic Metal band announces “Egomania”, its sophomore long-player.
The impressive album has been produced and mixed by bandleader Danny Meyer at his Sunway Studios and the mastering has been handled by Avantasia keyboard player Miro Rodenberg as well as Olaf Reitmeier of the Gate Studio (Kamelot, Epica, Kissin’ Dynamite). 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 have stylistically evolved and captivate with a more modern, harder sound that fascinates with musical experiments. OVERSENSE is definitely currently one of the most emerging bands the European Metal scene has to offer. 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!
