The eponymous debut album from ORM was released end March this year and has stirred up a solid buzz among both underground metal audiences and established music media. The five-song effort was produced by Lasse Ballade (Solbrud, Halshug) and bears the grandiose artwork of Italian artist Paolo Girardi (Inquisition, Black Breath Power Trip).
"Ancient Echoes" is a perfect example of ORM's brand of epic, rocking and melodic black metal and their mythic tales of a magical world long ago that completes the bands' s artistic vision. The new video for the song is a simple, but glowing and atmospheric visual impression of the band and their musical cosmos, created by director Per Silkjær, who's previously done visual material for Oxx, Fossils and Anti Ritual. ORM issues of the new video, "The theme of the video and the track is the chaos created by the impossible unification of man and nature. Since the birth of mankind, we have battled constantly to subdue nature to our will, and we have succeeded to such a degree that our own conquest now threatens to destroy the very foundation of life as we know it."
