Rising German power metal force ORDEN OGAN follows up on the success of their latest studio album „Ravenhead“ (which became an international chart success in 2015) with their first ever DVD release. But “The Book Of Ogan” is so much more than that… The package consists of 2 DVDs (running time 6 hours – incl. 2 full Live concerts, extensive band documentary, all music videos & numerous specials) and 2 CDs (“Best Of 2008 – 2015” and the self-released/demo “Testimonium a.d.” from 2004). While the “Best Of” is an exclusive selection of the band’s hits and fan favorites from their four albums, “Testimonium a.d.” is made available for the first time ever as official label release here. It received highest ratings in the demo sections of the leading metal magazines back then and was dealt for up to 500€ (!). „The Book Of Ogan“ comes as deluxe 2DVD/2CD box set (hardcover, separate trays for each disc, 40-pages booklet) and is a must for both longtime followers and new fans!
German power metallers Orden Ogan will release their new album, Ravenhead, on January 16th (in Europe) and February 3rd (North America) via AFM Records. The band has just unveiled the first video clip from the album – check out “F.E.V.E.R” below:

Just back from their European tour with Luca Turilli‘s Rhapsody and Freedom Call, German Power Metallers ORDEN OGAN have released their brand new video clip, filmed for their song “Masks”. „Masks“ is based on motifs of Seeb Levermann‘s soundtrack for MASKS, the newest horror movie movie of Andreas Marschall, who is also well-known for his amazing Metal cover artworks.
The enormous songwriting qualities that Seeb has displayed with ORDEN OGAN, perfectly merge with Marschall’s possessive, dark pictures – a perfect match to form a mysterious nightmare trip.
Andreas Marschall states: “After Seeb’s contribution of the amazing soundtrack for my horror movie MASKS, it was just obvious to return the favor and do a clip for ORDEN OGAN. I think Seeb has exceeded himself with the “Masks” song: he took the great main theme of the movie (in the film this is sung by Crystal Viper’s Marta Gabriel) and turned it into a melodic Metal smasher that combines the horror atmosphere of MASKS with the modern, anthemic sound of ORDEN OGAN.”
Seeb comments: “Andreas Marschall’s cover artworks are an important part for us since the release of our debut “Vale” in 2008. Within the last few years we got to know each other better and better. Our appreciating for each other grew and so it became a logical thing that I, as a composer and fan of horror movies, would contribute the filmscore for Andreas’ “Masks” movie. Working with him was just awesome and a great experience. By working on the music for the film, the idea came up to create an ORDEN OGAN song with elements from it too. With Andreas as director of the video clip for “Masks”, filming it in the Apollo cinema in Arnsberg (Germany) was very exhausting but also incredibly productive and fun. Now seeing the result, I have to say that that I’m totally blown away. The clip turned out to be very artistic and maestro Marschall has outdone himself. Just killer!”
German Melodic Power Metal masters ORDEN OGAN are the band of the hour: their critically acclaimed new album „To The End“ enters Germany’s official album chart at #41!
„Wow, this is awesome! We are overwhelmed by this news. A big “thank you” goes out to all those who supported ORDEN OGAN. We will celebrate now, but then it#s time for our final preparation for our tour with Luca Turilli’s RHAPSODY and Freedom Call, which will kick off these days. We hope to see many of you there”, singer/guitarist Seeb comments.

“Filming the clip with Rainer “ZIPP” Fränzen and his company was hard work but also a lot of fun. Even though some band members suffered from a heavy cold, we gave our best, and so the whole crew did. It was an unforgettable session and we are very happy with how the clip turned out in the end”, ORDEN OGAN vocalist Seeb comments.

German epic power metallers ORDEN OGAN have just finished the recordings for their upcoming, highly-anticipated new album “To The End”.
Band leader Seeb Levermann comments: “It’s done! We have finally finished recordings, mix and mastering for our upcoming new album “To The End”. Overal it took a lot longer than expected, but now we are 100% satisfied with the result and we can’t wait to unleash it.”
“Originally, the release of our new album “To The End” was scheduled for February. But as it sometimes gets… our tour with Van Canto and a few technical difficulties in the studio forced us to push back the release. In such a case it makes no sense to rush anything. We want to deliver the best possible album, so we have taken some more time to give the new material being perfected,” said the band´s vocalist/guitarist Seeb.
