7th July 2017



orphaned land

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

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.
