Ormagoden Is Basically a French Version of Megadeth and More

Ormagoden from the French city of Grenoble may be one of the weirdest band names that most of us have heard but they are another valuable addition to the French metal scene. Their 2018 mini album called The Den of Sin is inspired by early Megadeth and also I hear a certain degree of the rock band Scorpions when I hear the vocals so this is about to be a delightful set of songs or is it?


How Does The Den of Sin Start?

“The Den of Sin” which is the title track on this mini album starts with the sound of blowing wind followed by some 1980s style Megadeth guitar sound before the fast riffing starts. This song sounds like something we would have heard on the album Peace Sells But Who's Buying. However, this mini album provides more than just nostalgia for those that miss the metal of the 1980s. It also provides sharp guitar work and Neo-classical style guitar at least briefly. It sounds like this sort of twin guitar sound before some tapping guitar is heard.

The Den of Sin Lyrical Themes

The title track might as well refer to the fact that humans have sinned since the beginning of time. Some of us wonder if the world will end, a scenario too scary to imagine. I've been familiar with the French metal scene since the 2000s and it has grown. This is more than just a nation with heavy thrash metal bands that have death metal style vocals or just a nation that has power metal. Lyrically, this mini album is about the various social ills including humans sinning, monarchies that are corrupted as the people are stabbed in the back and other social and political issues. Even if these are lyrical themes that are done too much, these are themes that thrash metal bands do tend to focus on.

Analysis of The Den of Sin Continued

“Liar States of Freedom” is lyrically about what happens when people trust a political machine that is corrupt. It gets to the edge and greed is one of the thing that leads to unrest and war. It is often said that the United States is the land of the free and the home of the brave but is the US really as free as it claims to be? As the song says, “the dice is cast in a wrong way.” That's what happens when the leadership at the top is tainted. Thanks to these French guys for bringing the subject up for thought. “Faith Bathed in Blood” is a combination of Judas Priest and Megadeth influences and this is something that these French guys show in this album. The song is lyrically about someone who uses his faith in the wrong way and in the opposite way that the Bible taught us.”Kill the Weak” is a Peace Sells era and Rust in Peace influenced song about how the world order dominates against those who are weak. It is not just in evolutionary terms that that those who are the fittest survive. It is also no wonder that those who get their hands on gold will survive financially and dominate in terms of wealth and assets. The last song in this mini album called Nuclear Strike is about the potential effects of nuclear war as the war machine does nothing but cause destruction in its path. Overall, The Den of Sin is a very solid mini album from this young French band and these guys can succeed even more in the future.
