Latest Orden Ogan News
Below is our complete Orden Ogan news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
German power metal act Orden Ogen announced the track listing for the band's forthcoming LP "To the End." The album is scheduled for release on October 26, 2012 via AFM Records. Two of the featured songs, "Angels War" and "Mystic Symphony," will be familiar to fans, as the band decided to re-record the songs in the studio. Both tracks were part of the band's live set for years, but never were officially released on an album.
Vocalist/guitarist Seeb Levermann commented on the two tracks:
"It was an easy decision to have both tracks featured on an official Orden Ogan album finally. 'The Mystic Symphony' is from one of our very early demos, while 'Angels War' was part of our self-released "Testimonium A.D." recording from 2004. Since eight years now, both songs are part of our live set because the reactions have always been very good. And of course fans ever since kept asking where they could get these tracks. When we started working on 'To The End', we thought it was the perfect opportunity to 'legitimize' the two songs and make them a part of the new album."
The cover artwork for "To The End" was again created by legendary artist Andreas Marschall. Levermann added, "We’ve already worked with Andreas for our albums 'Vale' and 'Easton Hope' – and for sure we would like to continue working with him in the future. Andreas Marschall’s artworks very well fit with Orden Ogan, because we want everything to be handmade and real. Andreas gives the same attention to details as we do in the production. Therefore a digitally created cover artwork is not what we are looking for – even if it would save costs. Marschall is a passionate and exceptionally talented artist who was able to capture the mood and atmosphere we had in mind for 'To The End' – just like he did many time before in the past, with acts like Blind Guardian, In Flames or Running Wild.”
The track list for "To The End" is as follows: More...
