Ogen To Release Debut EP "Black Metal Unbound"

Italian black metal act Ogen has announced the band's debut EP "Black Metal Unbound" will be released in the Spring of 2011 through Kolony Records. The CD is currently being recorded at Elfo Studio in Italy with producer Daniele Mandelli (Forgotten Tomb, Dark Horizon). It also features a guest appearance by Be'lakor lead singer George Kosmas on the song "Shattered Earth Volcano."

The band also commented on it's history and the new album:

"Ogen was formed in 2010 as a solo project of mastermind Hartagga who had the desire to explore the field of extreme metal, pushing his lifelong musical quest further. The path to follow was clear since the beginning: from the early stages of the project, Ogen was meant to contribute its view and compositions to the ever-changing genre of black metal. With this in mind, the songwriting process started to flow easily, revealing Ogen's ability to forge tunes made of both black metal edges and episodes of not-so-obvious harmonic tapestry. An EP was born, set to firstly declare Ogen's will to provide the world of metal with an enchantingly estranging extreme metal outfit, which never lacks perspective and whose wall of sound, easily more relevant than speed for speed's sake, will take listeners on a trip to the deep heart of forgotten landscapes."

The "Black Metal Unbound" track listing is as follows:

1. Shattered Earth volcano
2. Black tusk retaliation
3. Crest of the forgotten
4. As a leaden sun shineth upon
5. A steep slope to desolation
