ORPHANED LAND To Re-Release Classic Albums Sahara And El Norra Alila; Pre-Order Launched

In celebration of their 25th anniversary, the pioneers of oriental metal, Orphaned Land, are re-releasing the two landmark albums, Sahara and El Norra Alila, as a Special Edition Digipak version and also on all digital platforms.

Both albums were remastered and the CD versions come with revised artwork and layout and also include an introduction into oriental metal written by Kobi Farhi.

Frontman Kobi Farhi comments: “This is another exciting moment in our 25th anniversary year! Sahara and El Norra Alila are the milestones of the whole oriental metal genre, originally released in 1994 and 1996, when I and my bandmates were still teenagers. I'm so excited to have these albums re-issued at Century Media Records! They've been out of stock for so many years, never been released digitally and now we have all our albums at the same house!”

You can pre-order the Special Edition Digipaks here.

Orphaned Land will also celebrate their 25th anniversary with an exciting journey into world metal music which takes you through Russian-Chinese and Middle Eastern metal. All three embedded in their own different cultures and yet all brought together in a night of the finest Metal music the world has to offer.
