Hell yes! Orden Ogan will release their next album, 'Ravenhead', on January 16. The cover art is by Andreas Marschall. Check out their announcement at the link below:

Yeeesssss! To The End was amazing. This band is what Blind Guardian should be doing now.

To the End hasn't aged nearly as well as I'd have liked, but I still like it. I'll probably like this too, but I guess it's sort of settled that they're never returning to the poignance and oddities that made Vale so great. Dumb album cover, dumb title.

Cheer up, Empyreal! I agree that 'To the End' hasn't withstood the fall of time quite as well as 'Vale', but it's still really good, and there's no reason to think this won't be, too. I too am not quite sure about the cover art; it looks good, and I really like the colors, and the fact that it's a painting, but the creatures in it don't strike me as something that would be in the Alister Vale story. I'm wondering if it will continue the concept, or if it'll just be a 'songs album'.

I found To the End (and Easton Hope as well) to be really, really boring and generic. Which is a shame, because Vale is a masterpiece.

Not expecting a complete return to glory, but if they could even just improve on their last two albums, I'd probably be happy with it.

I really thought that To the End was their best effort yet, mainly because of the vocal performance. It has a few meh songs near the end but overall I really enjoyed it. Definitely looking forward to this release.

Here's a link to the back cover: https://www.facebook.com/ORDENOGAN/phot ... =1&theater

Why this isn't the front cover is beyond me. That's a beautiful painting.

I'm looking forward to this with moderate optimism. "Vale" will always be my favorite by them. I found "Easton Hope" to be a bit of a letdown, but "To the End" was pretty good.

On a side-note, I was browsing yahoo auctions earlier today looking for "Testamonium A.D." and landed a copy of their "Soli Deo Gloria" demo instead (for pretty cheap too). Now whether that album is any good or not is anyone's guess, but at worst it'll be a nice keepsake.
