AVE MARIA, ORA PRO NOBIS...the story of OPN

OPN began in 1997 as a CD-R and cassette-tape label. Our first release was THE BLEEDING LIGHT's third demo, "Drowning", which very quickly drew the attention of Marseilles-based record label "Season of mist". It was followed by "Danse dans les vents d'Europe", ORAISON's very first release which compiled demo tracks from the early days as well as live material (their very first concert with ATARAXIA in 1997). In 1999, ORAISON put out their first official studio work, a demo-tape spanning 8 tracks and called "Life+Death=Love=Burden". Sold on all continents, that demo introduced OPN to a lot of people in the "folk noir" scene and drew attention from many labels. Our first releases got a rather positive and enthusiastic feedback, be it locally or internationally, which often lead the bands to sign deals with bigger labels.

For a few years we've been focusing on releasing the material recorded by HARVEST RAIN, a band we really like and decided we'd help because they are just worth the time and money !

Our philosophy is to help worthy artists release their material. We do not care about money, nor do we care about politics.
