In August, ORDEN OGAN released the video for the song "We Are Pirates" featuring an appearance by former RUNNING WILD guitarist Majk Moti. The song was used by Germany's biggest TV station RTL for several trailers that aired during the channel's Formula 1 broadcast.
ORDEN OGAN's first self-released CD, "Testimonium A.D.", came out in 2004, and was followed by "Vale" in February 2008.
According to a press release, "the traditional roots of [ORDEN OGAN's] sound are, of course, contemporary modern, effortlessly avoiding cliche and is able to remain fresh and original. Symphonic keyboards melt into grinding guitar riffs and bombastic choir and orchestral arrangements creating an impressive wall of sound. Modern and traditional and the most original in their class of what Germany has to offer lately. ORDEN OGAN have rocked many stages and shows in the entire Republic of Germany and some of her neighbors with artists such as DORO, SUBWAY TO SALLY, IN EXTREMO, TESTAMENT, CLAWFINGER, SCHANDMAUL, CORVUS CORAX, BLAZE, AXXIS, RAGE, EISREGEN, NAPALM DEATH and many more."
