Orphaned Land

Probably one of the world's most unique and trailblazing heavy metal bands, Israel's Orphaned Land borrow heavily from Middle Eastern music styles to spice up their otherwise extreme metal sound. Founded in 1991 under the original name of Resurrection, Orphaned Land quickly drew attention to their unorthodox style via 1992's The Beloved's Cry demo (later issued on CD in 2000) and then contracted with France's Holy Records and issued two well-regarded albums in 1994's Sahara and 1996's El Nora Alila. During this productive period, the band's lineup consisted of Kobi Farhi (vocals), Yossi Saharon (lead guitar), Matti Svatitzki, (rhythm guitar), Uri Zelcha (bass), Itzik Levy (keyboards), and Sami Bachar (drums), but internal dissension, not to mention their relative geographic isolation in the international rock spectrum, ultimately drove them apart.

A long silence ensued, but in 2001 Orphaned Land decided to reunite for a series of concerts and a one-off acoustic set. The enthusiastic response to these showed that their original albums had gradually seduced a large number of fans throughout the Arab world, and proved reason enough for a more permanent reunion to take place. So after obtaining new members Eden Rabin (keyboards) and Avi Diamand (drums), Orphaned Land struck a new deal with Century Media and released their long-awaited third album, Mabool (The Story of the Three Sons of Seven), in 2004. ~ Eduardo Rivadavia

Beautiful... a bit like Saviour Machine's Legend trilogy, but without the scare-the-li v i n g - c r a p - o u t - o f - y o u end-of-the-w o r l d themed lyrics. Yay! Music of a somewhat simmilar style without the potential for nightmares.

Just got the new cd for Christmas. I love it. I tell everyone it's like Dream Theater from Israel. We must all spread the word. Orphaned Land is awesome.

This band is so amazing for their music and what they have been able to achieve with it. Amazing that a metal band could bring Muslims, Jews, and Arabic people together in a place where they would communicate freely with each other.

Haven't got them to play on my Pandora station (yet), but I did just acquire a copy of their latest album after Amazon decided to put it in my recommendati o n list - damn is it ever good!

I shall be henceforth be recommending this group quite highly.

I first heard of these guys on NPR oddly enough. Apparently even though they're Jews in Israel, they are popular (underground anyway) in the Muslim world. And their concepts are about peace between Jews and Arabs. And their music is brilliant. This is probably the most useful piece of info I've ever picked up from news radio...

Duh! Metal and Middle-Easte r n sounds and scales! About time somebody put it into plastic.

Seriously though, these guys get way better with each album. Their songs and sounds get more professional , cohesive, and creative. Been a while since the last one. :/ Whatever, though. Take your time, guys.
