Power Metal band Orden Ogan premiere the title track as the first video from their upcoming new album, Gunmen.
The new video was directed by Rainer “Zipp” Fränzen, who has worked with the band since 2012’s To The End album.
Bandleader, Seeb Levermann:
“The creation of the Gunman clip was once again real team work. The new Orden Ogan album Gunmen is set in a dark fantasy Wild West environment, so obviously we had to go to Monument Valley (Utah) to shoot there. There is no other place in the world that is more ‘Wild West’. We shot at the classic Monument Valley scenery as well as at the famous John Ford’s Point and also did horseback rides.”
The second extensive part of filming took place in Germany, but also here the band tried something new:
“A Western city in an adventure park proved to be the perfect location. Things came full circle here, because we’ve also recorded the drums for Gunman there – to be more specific – in the Western Saloon of the Fort Fun adventure park. We wanted to have this huge 80’s snare ambience that you can only get from big rooms. When the Wild West concept took form, we learned about the Saloon (in Fort Fun), did some test recordings there and were totally blown away. The hall sounds amazing and Gunmen may be my best sounding mix so far.”
