Orden Ogan: The Book of Ogan (2CD/2DVD)
Wow! There's so much contained within The Book of Ogan! The package consists of 2 DVDs (running time 6 hours – incl. 2 full Live concerts, extensive band documentary, all music videos & numerous specials) and 2 CDs (All These Dark Years – The Best Of 2008 - 2015 and the self-released/demo Testimonium a.d. from 2004). While the 'Best Of' is an exclusive selection of the band's "hits" and fan favorites from their four albums, "Testimonium a.d. is made available for the first time ever as official label release here. The Book Of Ogan comes as deluxe 2DVD/2CD box set (hardcover, separate trays for each disc, 40-pages booklet.)
After all that, all I have to discuss is the download of the 'hits' album. Orden Ogan have never been right at the front of the power metal taxi rank but they are, (and I realize this is faint praise) adequate and at their best ("All These Dark Years" and the more folk-inflected "The Things We Believe In") pretty impressive. The Testimonium a.d. is interesting (faint praise again but I don't mean to)and arguably is as good as anything they have ever done and musically this package is probably the ideal way to get to know the band.
