In order to promote Orphaned Land’s up – coming album “Unsung Prophets & Dead Messiahs“, Kobi Farhi checked in at Black Plastic in Dortmund and talked about his all time favourite albums and artists/records that inspired him.

The band’s new studio album, “Unsung Prophets & Dead Messiahs” will be released on January 26 via Century Media. Jens Bogren once again took over mixing and mastering duties of what turned out to be the band’s best and biggest production so far.

Orphaned Land recently released a lyric video and digital single for their new song ‘We Do Not Resist’, taken from the upcoming album.

Kobi Farhi explains, “After our first single ‘Like Orpheus’, it is time to present you the angry side of our new album. Growls, straight forward protest text against the fact that we do not resist. I won’t say too much, listen to it, read the lyrics. It’s a kick into your face. Continue reading »

Kobi Farhi 2014Orphaned Land frontman Kobi Farhi has written an open letter to one of his heroes, Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder, urging the US musician to bring his band to Israel for the first time.

Earlier this summer, Vedder was accused by the Jerusalem Post of making a “harsh anti-Israel diatribe” following an onstage speech referencing the conflict in Gaza. A prominent Israeli rock DJ, Ben Red, then published an open letter to Vedder telling him to stay away from Israel as his “true face has finally been revealed.” But Kobi Farhi’s own open letter takes a rather different tack. The message follows below.:
