Biography

Day after day, in every news program on this planet, the Middle-East conflict is a major topic and it is one of the reasons the world we all live in is a world apart. For decades every attempt to make peace between Israel and the Arabian world has remained futile and the death toll keeps rising. Where politicians have failed, a mere metal band daringly labelling its style “Jewish Muslim ... Read more in Amazon's Orphaned Land Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow....what a journey. 23 Mar 2004
Format:Audio CD
While I've had Orphaned Land's first album, Sahara (and quite liked it), I didn't really know what to expect when I got this album. But, since I bought it at a friends recomendation, I thought it also would be quite good. Man, was I wrong! IT'S AMAZING! There is nothing, and I mean nothing, wrong with this album. So diverse and powerful. Absolutely breath-taking.
It begins with "Birth of the Three", and right at the get-go you can tell how great this album is. Very good song, that changes alot throughout it. Begins with almost narrative singing and headbanging riffs, but then goes on into beautiful singing by Kobi. He also showcases he great death-growl, which can't be more fitting to the verses he sings. There is also a part that the singing goes into an arabic yodeling thingy, and I just can't help myself but sing along. Great song
The second song is "Ocean Land", and this a definite favorite among fans, myself included. After a cool little intro, the song begins with heavy riffs and singing, but again changes into beautiful singing. I particularly like the vocal line near the end of "Here are we, servants three, flesh and blood". Also very worthy of a sing-along. Also, Yosi the guitarist, shows his skills with a very cool solo.
The next song is "The Kiss Of Babylon", and this begins with one of the heaviest parts of the album, and then, as usual, goes into beautiful singing, and so more yodeling that goes with the excellant riffs, and this time its even better than the first time! It ends with only female vocals,singing in Yemen, and while I usually can't stand this stuff, on this album it just adds to the atmosphere.
The next track "A'salk" continues the singing and also has some very nice classic guitar stuff in the background.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not disappointed at all! 5 Jun 2006
Format:Audio CD
I wasn't sure what to expect from Orphaned Land. I read about them on wikipedia and was interested by the sound of them and thought I would check them out. I liked the sound of this concept, and went for this album.

I was not disappointed in any way shape or form. This album is absolutely incredible! From the heavier songs such as the opening track "The Birth of the Three" and "Mabool" to the folkier songs such as "Nora El Nora" to the quieter songs, namel "The Calm Before the Flood" the band produces high quality metal, mixed with traditional oriental folk music.

This might sound weird to people who aren't into metal or folk music, but I would say one thing to everyone: Give them a try! I think you will be pleasantly surprised! Even if you don't like the death metal growl, it is very easy to get past this on this album, and settle into the incredible instrumentals and intruiging lyrics.

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant "metal" band 18 Feb 2010
Format:Audio CD
Orphaned Land would deserve more recognition. Their brand of metal is highly original, combining elements of black, folk metal and more traditionnal "middle eastern music" for lack of a better word. I was lucky to see them in concert they were fantastic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Israeli Metal 5 Jan 2008
Format:Audio CD
Discovering this band is a veritable learning experience. As a keen enthusiast of both folk and metal, finding this album was like happening upon a treasure trove. Orphaned Land channel the fearsome voice of God from the Old Testament, and they do so with a vengeance. The lead singer, Kobi Farhi, is superb and his slick growls are only slightly outshined by a beautiful, melodic voice that will transport you back to antiquity.

OL incorporate Biblical lore in their music, their lyrics brim with incantations and proverbs, and indeed "Mabool" evokes the story of the Arc. They sing in both English and Hebrew (there are translations and other helpful notes in the booklet) and employ traditional Middle Eastern instruments. The result is truly staggering. Show me another band that makes you headbang to citations from the book of Genesis.

I cannot recommend this album enough. Buy it now.
