Review Type: 

Originally Orden Ogan was formed in 1996 under the name of Tanzende Aingewaide, but was renamed Orden Ogan in 1997.  They hail from Germany, and bring us power metal with some hints of folk in it.  What I like about these guys is the amount of what I’d call bombast they mix into their music, which can be described as a mix of Blind Guardian and Rage.

They bring us decent German power metal of course, but with a twist. They seem to have taken the traditional approach, and lifted it to another level.  Don’t ask me how they’ve done it, but to me they sound far better than the what I’d call traditional German bands like Gamma Ray, Running Wild.

To sum it up : they seem to grow better album after album.
