||AFM Records presents a new high-class addition to its roster: Orden Ogan. The Melodic/Power/Folk Metal band from Arnsberg, Germany, is one of Europe´s hottest prospects of the last years. Orden Ogan have released their first own-pressed CD "Testimonium A.D." in 2004, to critical acclaim. Their label debut album "Vale" then followed in February 2008, with again critics praising the band´s undenieable qualities. Despite all their traditional Metal roots, the band never becomes stereotype, but sounds fresh and up-to-date. Symphonic keyboards melt into grinding guitar riffs, bombastic choirs and orchestral arrangements create an impressive wall of sound.
The new Orden Ogan album "Easton Hope" will be released in early 2010. It will be the band´s first world wide release. In August Orden Ogan already uploaded their new video clip „We Are Pirates", which can we viewed here. The song was used by Germany´s biggest TV station RTL for several trailers that aired during the station´s Formula 1 broadcast. More info on the new hopefuls of German Metal can be found here.
The band comments: "We always wanted to have a label that really believes in the band and gives 110% for Orden Ogan. We're very happy to announce that we signed in with AFM records and are absolutely sure that this is the right decision and the right Partner for Orden Ogan. AFM are one of the leading German metal labels as you can see when you take a look at the roster: Doro, Destruction, U.D.O. and so on... We're very proud to be part of the family now and are looking forward to our years and releases at AFM. Our new record "Easton Hope" will be released January 2010."
