German metallers ORDEN OGAN have just released their new single “F.E.V.E.R.”. The official video clip for the track is available now. “F.E.V.E.R.” comes off the band’s new album “Ravenhead”, which will be released on January 16th (EU) / February 3rd in the US.
ORDEN OGAN’s 2012 release “To The End” secured the international breakthrough for one of the finest metal bands to emerge from Germany in the last decade. After the very well received “Vale” (2008, re-issued in 2010) and “Easton Hope” (2010), the next logical step was done with “To The End” and its widely popular hit single/video “The Things We Believe In”. Now, after finally receiving the more than deserved attention for their musical creations, ORDEN OGAN return with “Ravenhead”, likely their most catchy and fascinating record. More than ever before in the band’s history, the new piece of work is the result of teamwork, as all members were contributing in the songwriting process, with the lion’s share still coming from band leader Seeb.
“More metal, more choruses, more Orden Ogan”, is the quick summary that Seeb comes up with to describe the new material - a very accurate analysis. “Ravenhead” blends traditional heavy/power metal with an up-to-date, modern production. It could be argued that it takes the sound of metal legends like Running Wild, Gamma Ray or Blind Guardian to the next level. Never before ORDEN OGAN have sounded so history. “We are fans of real painted artworks”, Seeb states. “Working with somebody like Andreas, who did all our album artworks since “Vale”, is just great. He understands our ideas perfectly and became a constant part of the team.”
Guest singers on the album are HammerFall’s Joacim Cans (who contributed vocals for “Sorrow Is Your Tale” and Chris Boltendahl (Grave Digger), who can be heard on “Here At The End Of The World”.
“Ravenhead” was produced and mixed by Seeb, the mastering was handled by Dennis Köhne (Sodom, Lacuna Coil).
ORDEN OGAN will be touring Europe with HammerFall in January/February.
