ORDEN OGAN have released video for new single ‘Inferno‘, out now on AFM Records. ‘Inferno’ is the third single taken from new album “Final Days”, to be released 12th March 2021. Watch the video below.
The album, once again produced by band leader Sebastian “Seeb” Levermann, is a real smasher and shows that the German group is among the best songwriters in heavy metal. “Final Days” combines finesse with huge riffs, clever arrangements with great melodies and even after the umpteenth spin you still discover something new. All of this is wrapped in a larger-than-life production so what more can one ask for?
Opener ‘Heart Of The Android’ introduces the listener to the album’s Dark Sci-Fi concept. “After creating a Dark Wild West scenery for “Gunmen” and having storylines about monasteries in moorlands (“Ravenhead”), apocalyptic ice worlds (“To The End”) and burning cities (“Easton Hope”), all that remained was the way into space”, grins Seeb.
Songs like “In The Dawn Of The AI”, “Black Hole”, “Interstellar” or “Hollow” are absolutely ORDEN OGAN-typical – but even more refined and powerful than ever before. “Let The Fire Rain” is the perfect combination of classic heavy metal (not to say “Dio memory riff”) and big choruses. With “Inferno” ORDEN OGAN present their most unusual single release so far, catchy and almost poppy, yet very representative of the band: once you’ve heard it, it will stick with you for a long time. ‘Final Days’ also features two interesting collaborations. On the song “Alone In The Dark”, a melancholic ballad with symphonic elements, Seeb is supported by Ylva Eriksson (vocalist of Swedish band Brothers Of Metal) and for “Interstellar”, ex-Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Gus G. contributed a solo.
“Final Days” finds its grand finale in the appropriately titled “It Is Over”, an epic track that thematizes the end of the world (caused by an asteroid impact) and culminates in the “last radio broadcast of mankind”, presented in all the world‘s languages. Goosebumps all over. ORDEN OGAN have managed to keep their trademarks but also integrated new influences into the sound, which make “Final Days” an extremely exciting album of highest quality.
Seeb comments on the upcoming new album: “Final Days is a dark-science-fiction-concept-record and it features all ORDEN OGAN trademarks, fat and modern riffs, epic choruses and melancholic orchestral arrangements. On this record you will find the best songs that we have ever written. Gunmen was a strong and important record for us, but Final Days takes it to the next level.”
