Customer Review

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Israeli Metal, 5 Jan. 2008
This review is from: Mabool - the Story of the Three Sons of Seven [Ltd Edition] (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.
