Israeli progressive metallers ORPHANED LAND are in the final process of recording their new album. This release is the band’s sixth full length and marks another big step forward, it is the logical evolution from the last studio release, The Never Ending Way Of ORwarriOR.
The title of the new album will be All Is One, and it surfaces on June 24th (North America on June 25th).
Singer Kobi Farhi explains the material as follows: “I'll say it plain and simple - All Is One is Orphaned Land's best album so far, I feel that we took all aspects to a new level - the way we write, arrange, play and produce. We recorded the album in three countries (Turkey, Sweden and Israel) and it turned out so strong, we can’t stop listening to it. The album is very rich in sound with more than 40 people participating (choirs, violins, and many traditional instruments, too). Our secret recipe was always the fact that unlike many other bands, Orphaned Land doesn't follow ONE master mind that writes everything, we work in a way that All Is One. We create our music in a perfect blend of synergy and harmony and all the band members are a part of this process, we translate the album's title and message exactly in the way we work, and we always hope we could give a bit of an inspiration to the people in the tragic Middle Eastern lands. We have fans all over the Middle East, we live in a place where huge amounts of people who consider themselves enemies still share one thing in common, they are all fans of Orphaned Land, and in these lands of orphans and bloody holy wars our only weapon is music, and hopefully we will grow to understand that All Is One."
