After entering the album charts in Germany and Switzerland, power metallers ORDEN OGAN come up with good news again: the band (currently on tour with HammerFall), is also confirmed as main support for the upcoming POWERWOLF tour! Also Civil War and Xandria will join the tour as supporting acts.
Recently ORDEN OGAN released their new single “F.E.V.E.R.”. Check out the official video clip for the track. “F.E.V.E.R.” comes off the band’s new album “Ravenhead”, which was released on January 16th (EU) / February 3rd in the US, via AFM Records.
Since January 4th, German heavy metallers POWERWOLF have entrenched themselves in the studio to record their upcoming, 6th album, which is expected to be released in summer 2015, via Napalm Records.
Comments the band:
Roel van Helden is currently outdoing himself tracking drums with amazing energy. The drums sound alive and big in the newbulit recording room at Kohlekeller Studio, and already now with only guide tracks and drums it all sounds amazing. We’ll probably spend the rest of the week celebrating our dutch drum-demon while he keeps beating the hell out of his drumset. Next up will be guitar recordings, starting probably by the end of the week. We’ll keep you posted.

Swedish Heavy Metal heroes SABATON have announced a new and very special kind of festival, issues Nuclear Blast. So, there is the ‘Sabaton Open Air/Rockstad:Falun’ festival in SABATON’s hometown Falun, the ‘Sabaton Cruise’ on the Baltic Sea and now there is also ‘Sabaton Open Air/Noch ein Bier Fest’ in Germany!
For a long time SABATON have had the plans for doing a special and totally unique event in Germany and that will become reality now. In July they will organize ‘Sabaton Open Air/Noch Ein Bier Fest’, a headline concert where people will surely get a unique show. For this concert they have chosen the stunning Amphitheatre in Gelsenkirchen (famous from ‘Rock Hard Festival’) and as support on this show SABATON will bring some bands they know that their fans have requested: their old touring colleagues in POWERWOLF and KORPIKLAANI as well as their former bandmates CIVIL WAR.
Pre-sales start on the upcoming Monday, January 12th
Bassist Pär Sundström comments: “In 2008 we organized ‘One more beer party’ in Essen in Germany as a release party for ‘Art of War’. Since then the idea has existed of doing something similar. Now, seven years later, all pieces have fallen into position and we are ready. There will be a lot of ‘Noch ein Bier’ that night!”
During the past six months POWERWOLF have secretly been more than busy writing songs for the follow up album to their number one success “Preachers Of The Night”.
“By now the major part of the songwriting is finished and we’re right now preparing for the studio work. The recordings will begin in early January and will keep us busy until March,” reports guitarist Matthew Greywolf.
The release of the yet untitled album is scheduled for summer 2015.
Being asked about the new songs, Matthew says: “Without revealing too much at this early stage, you can expect an album that’s 100% uncomprimising POWERWOLF-stuff. There´s songs to go wild to, there´s epic and atmospheric stuff – and a lot of wolfish metal madness in between, and quite a bunch of songs that will be must-plays on any future POWERWOLF show for damn sure. We can’t wait to get this album shaped!”

Comments POWERWOLF: “Feels great to feature our early works in the form of such a great boxset. Working on the book “The history of heresy” brought back so many great memories – and more than ever taught us to be grateful. Grateful for having such wonderful fans and such great supporters, without whom none of this would have happened. Still hard to believe we’re arround since 10 years now already, but releasing such a great package box is probably the best way to celebrate such an anniversary. Hope you all enjoy reading the book, while listening to the roots of Powerwolf – and we hope to see you all at Out & Loud Festival (www.outandloud.eu) on May 29th, where we’ll celebrate our 10th anniversary with a very special headliner show!”
