Scumbag Black metal with a greater sense of tunefulness than a lot of other black metal out there! It's not revolutionary, but it should give pause to a few listeners who'd normally automatically dismiss the genre to consider that it may just have some merit to it after all, occasionally... Favorite track: Shattered Earth Volcano.

about

OGEN was formed in 2010 as a solo project of mastermind Hartagga who had the desire to explore the field of extreme metal, pushing his lifelong musical quest further. The path to follow was clear since the beginning: from the early stages of the project, OGEN was meant to contribute its view and compositions to the ever-changing genre of black metal. With this in mind, the songwriting process started to flow easily, revealing OGEN's ability to forge tunes made of both black metal edges and episodes of not-so-obvious harmonic tapestry. An EP was born, entitled 'Black Metal Unbound', set to firstly declare OGEN's will to provide the world of metal with an enchantingly estranging extreme metal outfit, which never lacks perspective and whose wall of sound, easily more relevant than speed for speed's sake, will take listeners on a trip to the deep heart of forgotten landscapes. For fans of EMPEROR, OPETH, early IN THE WOODS

Track Name: Shattered Earth Volcano
I crossed the path
of implacable wolves from
afar

I chased their traces
back to a well-hidden
lair

Led by the star I was
against the bite of frost
I went

Hear the voice
of lands decaying

Shattered Earth volcano

And every word I said
shall die through the blazing chasms
and the vast world I wandered upon
shall die through the blazing chasms
and every world I dreamed of
shall sink into the vortex eye
oblivion’s perennial rest
it lies ahead of my path

Shattered Earth volcano
Shattered Earth volcano
Track Name: Black Tusk Retaliation
I’ve gone beyond the snowy heights
where every wind whispers of loss

Under dim skies I will
chase storms of the past
whence ghosts of woe have come
to haunt me till

I’ve gone beyond the snowy heights
to chase the wolves, I’ve been a prey of

I’ve gone beyond the snowy heights
where every wind whispers of loss

By hieratic moons
through the piles of snow
my bare hands will dig
the effigy of valor

I’ve gone beyond the snowy heights
where every wind whispers of loss

I’ve gone beyond the snowy heights
to chase the wolves, I’ve been a prey of

I’ve gone beyond the snowy heights
where every wind whispers of loss
Track Name: Crest of the Forgotten
Forget I did the world before
the one I came from lost to me
old legends I will seek no more
for I’ve become one out of them

Crest of the forgotten
will you ever cross it?

I’ve thousand eyes, among the branches
the rocks my arms, the trees my legs

And every chance for you to find me
is lost against my servants’ will
majestic trees turn into spears
while you thought them ever dormant...
Track Name: As a Leaden Sun Shineth Upon
I looked into the the winter’s heart
saw nothing but
an endless void

There lies the path, the path I’ve left
here starts the one which
admits no failure

I crawl in search of a light that can not be
and ride the breeze of perennial wander

As a leaden sun shineth upon
As a leaden sun shineth upon
Track Name: A Steep Slope to Desolation
I came from afar, led by the hunger
in search for treasures
the mountains witnessing my greedy efforts
to overcome their might

A steep slope to desolation
it’s what I fell from, misled by shadows

A steep slope to desolation
it’s what I fell from, misled by shadows

Never I will see
the oceans’ vastity, far behind me

I fell from above, the deepest heart of woods
hold me in a blind embrace
no time nor space, I lost perception
a breathing tree myself

A steep slope to desolation
it’s what I fell from, misled by shadows

A steep slope to desolation
it’s what I fell from, misled by shadows
