Orphaned Land offers Arab countires free album download

published on February 17, 2011 by Darren Cowan
sraeli prog/metal band ORPHANED LAND has just posted the following statement regarding the current events in the Arabian world:

“For years I was educated to hate Arabs and learned how much they hate me and my nation, I was sure both Israelis and Arabs, Jews and Muslims will never live in peace. But then something happened, a small movement - the music that taught me more than any teacher, guru, rabbi, sheikh, was my band’s music – ORPHANED LAND. I know that a football fan of Barcelona will never cheer up for Real Madrid, so how can it be that Arab people will follow my Israeli band? It's simple - the power of music to bring people together, to break walls, even worst enemies can find a mutual song that they love, and right there - it's a moment where they can find something in common, a door to a dialogue, to understand that we are all one.

We consider you, our Arabian fans, to be the most brave metal heads in the world, since you re-defined the word 'underground' into a new level.

We know how hard it is to be a metal head in the middle east and we always want you to know that we as pioneers of the Middle Eastern Metal genre, we are trying our best to be your voice too without getting into politics that divide us for ages. I already know that music can bring people together since I see how many fans we have in the Arab world despite the fact we are Israelis.

I know that all the wars and bullshit they put in our heads are just a stupid lie, I know it because we succeeded to break it, and we are not politicians, we are just a heavy metal band.

We are banned in your countries, not to mention the fact that we cannot play a concert there, this will never stop the power of music and friendship that exists between us - I see you, our fans as a miracle, you give us the inspiration to continue as much and as strong as we can.

Lately we have decided to make our latest album legally available in your countries - FOR FREE! We hope that you'll enjoy it and spread the word.

Our countries flags may have different signs and colours but deep in our hearts shines the same flag - the flag of hope, friendship, brotherhood,

Don't you ever forget it - it is our duty as disciples of the sacred oath.

With love, peace, Salam & Shalom,

You can download the entire album for FREE at the following website:

If you are lucky to live in a country where you can simply go out to a record store and buy whatever you want – grab your copy of “The Never Ending Way Of ORwarriOR” and support this fabulous band as they still live up to their message!

Orphaned Land put a new song online

published on January 6, 2010 by Zandra
A new song entitled "Disciples Of The Sacred Oath II" of the band Orphaned Land is now available for streaming on myspace

This track comes off the new album "The Never Ending Way of ORwarriOR" which will be release on January 25 in Europe and on February 9 in U.S via Century Media .

Singer Kobi Farhi commented on this new song : "'Disciples Of The Sacred Oath II' is a heavy song, both musically and lyrically, and it is one of the most important tracks of the album by its meaning. Indeed, it calls for a laying down of arms to realize that the warriors are first of all brothers: 'Lay down your swords, blood and flesh you share... Shall we see the end of war, bloodbrothers?' It is definitely the most outspoken text we ever wrote on this subject. Furthermore, as this song contains Arabic lyrics, we would like to dedicate it to our Arab fans and we hope that one day we will sing it together in a show in their home countries!"
