    ORDEN OGAN: "Vampire In Ghost Town" lyric video released!

    Power metal meets Western atmosphere in ORDEN OGAN's fourth single taken from the latest album "Gunmen": check out the lyric video for "Vampire In Ghost Town".

    The band states:
    "Vampire in Ghost Town" was the first song that we wrote for "Gunmen". With its Wild West-like melody it was the trigger for the whole theme and setting of the record. Without this song the whole album would have been completely different and songs like "Gunman" or "Fields Of Sorrow" would have never been written. Apart from the lead melody it is mainly the gallop-rhythms, that have been chosen on purpose, that trigger Wild West associations. The song seems to be received quite controversial. People love it or hate it. So there is no better choice for a fourth single than "Vampire in Ghost Town"!
