German power metal masters ORDEN OGAN proudly present the second single off their upcoming album „Gunmen“ (out July 7th): “Fields Of Sorrow” is one of the ten stunning, epic, melodic tracks featured on the new release, which also offers a guest appearance of former Leaves’ Eyes/Theatre Of Tragedy vocalist Liv Kristine on the song “Come with Me To The Other Side”.
Band leader Seeb Levermann: „Fields of Sorrow” is a special song for us in many ways: besides the (virtual) title track “Gunman, it is the only song in Orden Ogan’s history which I wrote together with our guitarist Tobi. Also, “Fields Of Sorrow” is quite likely the most melancholic song we’ve ever recorded. Lyrically we enter a kind of „Dark Fantasy/Wild West/Civil War“ world, telling the story of a man who loses the love of his life on the battlefield and has to bury her right there – while the Civil War is still raging on. The lyrics show his dark, heartbreaking thoughts in these minutes, a sad but realistic picture of human existence. With its epic-melancholic chorus, modern grooves, heavy riffs and orchestral arrangements, “Fields Of Sorrow” features all of Orden Ogan’s trademarks.”
“Gunmen” will be released on July 7th, available as CD, ltd. Digipak (incl. “Live At Wacken 2016” bonus DVD), ltd. colored Vinyl (red and silver), ltd. Picture Vinyl and ltd. “coffin” box set (incl. ltd. Digipak, a figure of the band mascot “Alister Vale” (ca. 15 cm tall) and more).
The album was once again produced by the band’s guitarist/vocalist Seeb Levermann, who just recently had also handled mixing & mastering duties for Rhapsody Of Fire’s latest release, “Legendary Years”.
