A legend continues in impressive fashion: Italian symphonic power metal kings Rhapsody of Fire have re-recorded their biggest classic songs of the "Rhapsody" years (1997 - 2002) with enormous effort and a huge result. Mixed and mastered by Seeb Levermann (Orden Ogan). The album includes 14 classic tracks of the band's "Rhapsody" years (1997 - 2002) which results in a rich playing time of 75 minutes The band has sold more than 1 million albums with their first 4 studio albums alone; "Legendary Years" consists of songs from this period only, now available in re-recorded and sonically supreme versions. Mixed and mastered by Seeb Levermann (Orden Ogan). "Legendary Years" marks the first Rhapsody of Fire release feat. their incredibly talented new vocalist Giacomo Voli, whose debut is anticipated by the band's huge worldwide fanbase!
Rising German power metal force ORDEN OGAN follows up on the success of their latest studio album „Ravenhead“ (which became an international chart success in 2015) with their first ever DVD release. But “The Book Of Ogan” is so much more than that… The package consists of 2 DVDs (running time 6 hours – incl. 2 full Live concerts, extensive band documentary, all music videos & numerous specials) and 2 CDs (“Best Of 2008 - 2015” and the self-released/demo “Testimonium a.d.” from 2004).
Orden Ogan have created a album that takes you on a journey of discovery. From the gargantuan and operatic vocal melodies to the almost thrash metal outbursts, “Easton Hope” is definitely a journey you do not want to miss. After “Rise and Ruin” sets up the album beautifully, “Nobody Leaves” delivers a crushing blow that continues through to the epic “Welcome Liberty”, and does not stop until closer “Of Downfall And Decline”, which is mind blowing to say the very least.
Now, with their brand new (6th) album “Center Of The Great Unknown”, the band again offers a great slice of heavy melodic sounds on the verge of heavy metal and hard rock. The new piece of work takes the listener to the core of the earth, where “the center of the great unknown” can be found. This was perfectly pictured by artist Claudio Bergamin, who created the album’s front cover and booklet layout.
