Oriental metal pioneers, Orphaned Land, are to release a new studio album on January 26th 2018 via Century Media Records.

Most parts of the album, which will be entitled 'Unsung Prophets And Dead Messiahs', have already been recorded and Jens Bogren will once again take over mixing and mastering duties of what is to be destined to become the band's best and biggest production so far.

'Unsung Prophets And Dead Messiahs' will feature a guest appearance of guitar virtuoso Steve Hackett and more specials will be announced soon.

Singer and frontman Kobi Farhi told us:

"Hails from the recording studio! We are so thrilled and impatient for you all to hear 'Unsung Prophets And Dead Messiahs'.

"I wish to inform our old school fans: Growls are back as well as killer melodies that will break your hearts!

"On a personal note: It's such a great feeling after a carrier of twenty-five years to know that we are still at our bests by all means. Prepare for something strong! Count the days with us till Janusry 26th 2018!"

The release of 'Unsung Prophets And Dead Messiahs' will be followed by an extensive European Tour in early 2018. There will also be a US tour in September.

Last time Orphaned Land were in London, MetalTalk had the distinct pleasure of spending some time with Kobi and it turned out to be our most edifying conversation to date. Here it is, in full.



"Evil falls on each of us, there's nothing new,
Who cares if you're a Muslim or a Jew,
The awakened ones are nothing but a few,
And the one to make the difference now is you."


Orpahned Land are:
Kobi Farhi – Vocals
Chen Balbus – Guitars
Idan Amsalem – Guitars
Uri Zelcha – Bass
Matan Shmuely – Drums

MONSTERS OF ROCK IN FULL FLIGHT SURE TO BECOME FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

monsters of rock

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
