(older news about the topic:)

Italy's Ogen has signed a deal with Kolony Records. The band's first EP, entitled 'Black Metal Unbound', is scheduled for a Spring 2011 release.

Ogen was born in 2010 as a solo project of mastermind Hartagga, in response to his desire to explore the field of extreme metal, pushing his life-long 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, 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.

Hartagga will enter Elfo Studio in Tavernago, Italy with producer Daniele Mandelli (Forgotten Tomb, Dark Horizon) in early 2011. Drums sessions will be played by guest musician Mj°llnir, while all other instruments will be handled by Hartagga himself.

'Black Metal Unbound' will also see the participation of singer George Kosmas (Be'lakor) as special guest on the album.
