Not disappointed at all!,
This review is from: Mabool - the Story of the Three Sons of Seven [Ltd Edition] (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.
