Melodic Power Metal

                European power metal can stake a claim to currently being one of the most productive genres currently out there. The bands which explode from countries such as Germany, Sweden and Finland deliver album after album of quality metal which sadly often seems to go under the radar of the mainstream media. One such band are Oversense, who are back for the first time since 2017 with their sophomore albums ‘Egomania’.

                There is an age old saying that if something isn’t broke, don’t fix it and that is exactly what Oversense do here with ‘Egomania’. With this album, Oversense try to pick up exactly where they left off with 2017’s ‘The Storyteller’ with an album of power metal which leans heavily on melody and hard rock sensibilities as tracks such as ‘My Eden’, ‘Love’ and ‘Antisocial’ hum with energy and the fervour of a band that are on the right track. However, there are times with ‘Egomania’ where the gap between albums shows, this is a band which has evolved from their beginnings with an album which has a habit of dropping out of power metal mode and begins to ferret around in other sounds. This means that at times, ‘Egomania’ can be a little disjointed and not always perfect.

                Yet, there is a charm ‘Egomania’, it might not perfect but that wholly adds to the enjoyability of this album and one thing is certain, there is a hell of a lot of fun to be had here, just don’t leave it too long before following this up.

"Egomania may not be perfect, but it does have a certain charm which makes it wholly enjoyable"
