Orphaned Land are a special group within the family tree of metal, just so inspiring, unifying and cinematic. Today’s great news is that the band will release their new studio album Unsung Prophets & Dead Messiahs on January 26, 2018 via Century Media Records.

Jens Bogren once again took over mixing and mastering duties of what turned out to be the band’s best and biggest production so far. “Unsung Prophets & Dead Messiahs” will feature a guest appearance of guitar virtuoso Steve Hackett as well as guest vocal appearances by no other than Hansi Kürsch (Blind Guardian) and Tomas Lindberg (At The Gates). It will be very interesting to hear these capable men in the context of the band’s larger than life sound! The great album artwork was created by Valnoir.

Singer and frontman Kobi Farhi comments: “We are thrilled and so happy to finally reveal you the great artwork of Unsung Prophets & Dead Messiahs! 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!”

Orphaned Land premieres “Brother” music video

Posted by longhairedpoet on Tuesday, May 28, 2013 at 2:35 PM (PST)

Orphaned Land Israeli metallers Orphaned Land have premiered the music video for their song “Brother” off of their upcoming album All Is One (Century Media Records).

Watch “Brother” at

All Is One will be released on June 24 in Europe and June 25 in North America.

Vocalist Kobi Farhi had this to say about the track:

“This is a song that Itshak is singing to his brother Ishmael. According to the bible, they were both the sons of Abraham from two different mothers. Today, Itshak is known as the father of the Israeli nation while Ishmael is known as the father of the Arab nation. Historically, that means of course that it’s a historical fact that Israelis and Arabs are brothers and we believe that the deepest source for our actual conflict still lies there, between the two brothers.

Both sides today are so focused on being right in the conflict and fill themselves with hate. Every side is so busy with being the victim, and today it doesn’t make sense to either one of the sides that we are historically brothers. People forgot it, forgot that our language is alike, as well as our names and history.

An interesting thing is that in the Jewish bible, there is a story where Abraham took Itshak to the mountain to sacrifice him to God. Muslims have the same exact story, but in their version it was Ishmael on the mountain. Everyone shapes history according to his own version, and we have conflicts about even the oldest stories, just as if we were two kids in a fight. And therefore, there is a line in the song that says: ‘The lord blessed us both, but we still fight and claim, that kid on the mountain – what was his name’.

‘Brother’ is a love song for a forgotten beloved brother who turned into a blood enemy. And before people go and start with politic comments, this has nothing to do with politics, or being left or right wing, Jew, Muslim or anything else. We are not taking any sides as musicians, we just tell a story, and we decided to be the first grown-up brother in this story and ask: ‘Forgive me, brother’. Mainly because being mature and grown-up sometimes means that you have to say you’re sorry, even if it’s not only your fault.

We dedicate this song with much love, hope and belief to our beloved Israeli & Arab brothers.”
