Another highlight at UrRock 2021: Orden Ogan
ORDEN OGAN announce new album and headline tour!
The German Power Metal institution ORDEN OGAN drops the bomb: In the first quarter of 2021 the new album "Final Days" will be released worldwide via AFM RECORDS.
Where to go after the Wild West?
Singer and producer Sebastian "Seeb" Levermann explains: "Final Days is a dark science fiction concept album and includes all ORDEN OGAN trademarks: fat and modern riffs, epic choruses and melancholic orchestral sounds. Here you can find the best songs we have ever written. Gunmen was a strong and important album for us, but Final Days definitely tops it off!
"Gunmen" entered the German album charts at #8 in 2017. The tour for "Gunmen", with "Rhapsody of Fire" as support, underlined with numerous sold-out shows that ORDEN OGAN are one of the most successful acts of the genre today. The own "ORDEN OGAN's Pirate Cruise" was sold out after 25 hours and also for the last show to "Gunmen" all tickets were sold out after only 3 weeks (and 18 weeks before the event).
For the "Final Days Tour" the band presents itself with a completely new show. The motto is: strike before there are no more tickets!
First headliner at UrRock 2021 is called: Nazareth
After the completely sold out shows in the last years, the Scottish Legends will return to Switzerland in 2021!
They belong to the first generation of Hard & Heavy Bands and after their foundation in 1968, together with bands like Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Uriah Heep and Black Sabbath, they significantly influenced the style of hard rock. With over 60 million records sold, they are (besides Simple Minds) the most successful rock band of all time in Scotland. In other words: Nazareth is a deserved headliner at UrRock 2021! When the rock dinosaurs make the UrRock stage tremble on Sunday, November 14th, 2021 with classics like "This Flight Tonight", "Expect No Mercy", "Hair Of The Dog", "Dream On" or "Love Hurts", we will not only be transported back to the good old days of the wild 70s, but we will also experience a band at first hand, which after more than 50 years is still full of joy of playing and is well prepared for the future.
This confidence is also due to the singer: Carl Sentance. With his gifted rock voice, the Welshman perfectly fills the big gap left by primary rock and band co-founder Dan McCafferty, who had to take his hat off in 2013 for health reasons. Sentance draws on his many years of experience as front man of bands like Krokus or Tokyo Blade, as well as his collaboration with greats like Geezer Butler (Black Sabbath), Paul Chapman (UFO), Vinny Appice (Dio, Sabbath) or Don Airey (Deep Purple).
From 1971 until today Nazareth have recorded 24 studio albums. They have received platinum and gold awards around the world. Their latest work "Tattooed on My Brain" - a record that every rock fan should have on his music shelf. Lots of rock, sometimes bluesy, sometimes groovy, sometimes Southern style, then psychedelic, but mostly British, brings back memories of the years when British rock music was at the top.
On the new record we hear a lot of vibes of 60s/70s rock music, yet the work sounds modern and fresh and not dusty. We are proud that Nazareth represents the headliner slot from Sunday and we are looking forward to a great show!
