Пионеры oriental metal из Израиля, ORPHANED LAND, выпустили новый альбом «Unsung Prophets & Dead Messiahs» в январе 2018!

С участием нескольких гостей: progressive rock легенды Steve Hackett (ex-Genesis), ветерана metal-сцены Hansi Kürsch (Blind Guardian) и сурового Tomas Lindberg (At The Gates). Jens Bogren (Arch Enemy, Opeth, Sepultura) взял на себя сведение. Обложка была создана Valnoir. Певец и фронтмен Kobi Farhi комментирует: "Наша музыка всегда была комбинацией гнева, трагедии, протеста и радости. Мы не можем дождаться, когда вы услышите 13 новых треков этого альбома. Как всегда, это будет очень эклектично, ни одна песня не будет похожа на другую, и весь альбом - одно большое музыкальное путешествие. Мы чувствуем, что этот альбом выводит наши чувства на новый уровень гнева, протеста и трагедии. Обложка говорит сама за себя, и она символизирует, как правительства получают свои деньги". Издание по лицензии Century Media, 300 копий в кейсе и 200 копий digipak, содержат OBI, Pit-Art и 16-страничный буклет, включающий также имена российских фанатов, участвовавших в сборе средств.

Oriental metal pioneers from Israel, ORPHANED LAND, released new album “Unsung Prophets & Dead Messiahs” on January 2018! This edition is first official version for Russia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine and Uzbekistan. With guest appearances from progressive rock legend Steve Hackett (ex-Genesis) and metal luminaries Hansi Kürsch (Blind Guardian) and Tomas Lindberg (At The Gates), CD is an artistic tour-de-force from a band with a formidable and furious sense of purpose. Jens Bogren (Arch Enemy, Opeth, Sepultura) once again took over mixing and mastering duties of what turned out to be the band’s best and biggest production so far. The great album artwork was created by Valnoir. Singer and frontman Kobi Farhi comments: “Our music has always been a combination of anger, tragedy, protest and joy. We can't wait for you to hear the 13 brand new tracks of this album. As always it will be very eclectic, no song sounds like the other and the whole album is a one big musical journey. We feel that this album takes our feelings to a new level of anger, protest and tragedy. The cover speaks for itself and it was made as tribute to the way governments design their money. Enjoy!”. Release under license from Century Media, 300 copies of jewel case and 200 copies of digipak, contain OBI, Pit-Art and a 16-page booklet that also includes the names of Russian fans who participated in fundraising.

One of the most revolutionary bands in the history of heavy music, Orphaned Land are an unstoppable force. Formed in Israel in 1991, these self-proclaimed ‘Oriental metal’ artisans have spent the last 26 years working tirelessly to use their creative endeavours as a means to spread a positive and peaceful message. Over the course of six conceptually deep and musically ingenious albums, the band have been true to their word, uniting fans across the Middle East and beyond, regardless of nation, face or faith. Hugely respected in the world of heavy music – the band won UK magazine Metal Hammer’s ‘Global Metal’ award in 2014 – Orphaned Land have also been recognised for their tireless contribution to bringing people together, accruing three major international peace awards along the way. Meanwhile, fans have long been campaigning to see Orphaned Land awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, with many thousands already signing an online petition. With fans spread across the globe, not least a diehard fanbase across the Arab world, the band’s quest for truth, love and hope has clearly made a remarkable impact, to the extent that modern prog legend Steven Wilson has proclaimed them to be one of the greatest metal bands on the planet. “I would say that the Orphaned Land members are the most famous Israelis in the Arab world,” states frontman and founder member Kobi Farhi. “Those achievements, the peace awards we’ve received and the fact that we’re doing a better job than our own foreign ministry, maybe it all means that we are the true ambassadors for our country. We are the ones creating a dialogue and friendship through music.” It seems safe to say that Orphaned Land are far from the average metal band. In 2018 they will once again prove the uplifting and unifying power of their extraordinary music. Several years in the making, Unsung Prophets & Dead Messiahs marks another high watermark for Kobi and his band mates. Inspired by the writings of Plato and the thwarted aspirations of peaceful revolutionaries throughout history, it’s a wholesale return to the conceptual depths and musical intricacy of earlier records like 2010’s Steven Wilson-produced The Never Ending Way Of ORwarriOR. Veering from epic brutality to ornate theatricality, armed with an astonishing array of inspired melodies and euphoric crescendos, Unsung Prophets & Dead Messiahs is simply the finest and most powerful album the band have produced. Most importantly, it is an album fuelled by righteous anger at the state of humanity in 2017. “We are angry, yes, with governments, the media and all the brainwashing you can think of,” Kobi states. As dark political shadows loom over the world and bloody conflict erupts with enervating regularity, Orphaned Land’s music and message have never been more vital than they are today. Unsung Prophets & Dead Messiahs promises to be one of 2018’s most celebrated albums, but this is one band that does not measure their success in record sales. Instead, the lost art of making the world a better place remains their primary concern. “I had a conversation with a fan from Syria. He told me how important we are but I said to him, ‘I don’t know that we’re so important, we haven’t saved the life of one kid in Syria…’ which is true,” Kobi notes. “But then he said ‘Maybe you didn’t save a child’s life, but you gave hope to many people.’ That’s much more than nothing and we shouldn’t disrespect that. I’d be happy if Orphaned Land can just play a role of showing people that there is another way and that we can step out of the darkness and go towards the light.”
