ORPHANED LAND - New Audio Interview With Frontman Kobi Farhi Online
May 20, 2013, 6 years ago
The pioneers of oriental metal music and warriors of light, ORPHANED LAND, will release their new album, All Is One, on June 24th in Europe, June 25th in North America, via Century Media Records. Frontman Kobi Farhi is featured on the latest episode of the MSRcast discussing the album, breaking down of barriers with metal music, touring plans, his ultimate concert lineup and much more. Check out the interview via the audio player below:
All Is One was mixed by Jens Bogren (JAMES LABRIE, DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT, OPETH) and was recorded in three different countries: Israel, Turkey and Sweden. Ironically, these countries are Jewish, Muslim and Christian respectively, which strengthens the Orphaned Land message of unity through music. Over 40 musicians were used to flesh out the sound of All Is One, including 25 choir singers and eight classical violin, viola and cello players from Turkey.
This release is the bands sixth full length and marks a huge step forward. The cover artwork for All Is One was created by the French artist Metastazis (PARADISE LOST, AS I LAY DYING, SONNE ADAM, WATAIN), incorporating perfectly the three signs of the biggest religions as one. The album will be available as Limited Deluxe Book Edition including three bonus songs and a bonus DVD, as well as limited double gatefold LP including the three bonus songs and in different vinyl colors. A standard jewelcase CD format and digital download will also be available.
All Is One tracklisting:
'All Is One'
'The Simple Man'
