ORDEN OGAN: Fields Of Sorrow lyric video released!

June 9th, 2017

Orden Ogan

Orden Ogan

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”.

ORDEN OGAN: 2DVD/2CD Box Set “The Book Of Ogan”

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!

ORDEN OGAN: „Masks“ video clip released/ music meets movie!

December 18th, 2012

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!”

ORDEN OGAN: New album “To The End” set for April release

January 16th, 2012

“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.

“To The End” will now be released on April 20th.
