Friday Morning Metal – Orden Ogan – The Things We Believe In

Orden Ogan hails from Germany, pumping out proggy power metal with kickass vocal harmonizing and big guitar solos. Their new album “To the End” came out last week, and it’s been pretty great to listen to. I haven’t heard too many metal bands that incorporate flute, violin, and multiple vocal parts while still sounding like great power metal. Usually they tend to go for the bombast and sound a bit more operatic, and I start to tune out. Orden Ogan does a fantastic job to layer these musical parts on a strong metal base, keeping me interested.

Here’s the video for “The Things We Believe In.” It has a great, big sound, like a great battle cry. Or montage while the rag tag group of soldiers prep for the onslaught of the horde or something.
