Vollmer visited once again the Dark One studio Mainz and recorded their newest work „Ogdrun Jarhar“.
Ogdrun Jarhar is a concept album. It deals with the birth of Amon Ramah the son of the fallen angels. Furthermore the lyrics tell us about Ogdrun Jarhar, the parallel universe which is ruled by the seven gods of chaos, like Samael, son of Nergal, the reviving jackal. Musically it can be seen as a continuation of the last work MaledictusS, but with a better production. The album also includes a cover version of the german black metal band Secrets Of The Moon, “Leichengott”.
