“All Is One” a Rockpalast Documentary About ‘Orphaned Land’


“All Is One” a Rockpalast documentary about Orphaned Land from 2018. The video can be watched below.

Orphaned Land is the most successful Rock Band from the Middle East. Uniting people from all religions among its fans, the 5-piece-group from Israel manages to tour the whole world since the 90s. The band’s musical blend of heavy guitars and oriental instruments is unique, but what really makes the group stand out is their contribution to the peace idea. As some fans put it „Orphaned land are doing what our political leaders fail to do, unite people everywhere“.

„All is one“ is more than the name of one of Orphaned Lands albums, it is the quintets philosophy claiming that all three big religious groups – Christians, Muslims and Jews – are coming from the same origin.

German filmmakers Ingo Schmoll and Conny Schiffbauer visited Israel to follow the band’s path and to get a personal insight view into the musician’s life by visiting the band members at home, getting to know their families and learning about their daily life. „In the documentary we are trying to take the audience beyond the endless discussions about the conflicts in the middle east by taking a far more human approach to it all“ the filmmakers explain.

Orphaned Land’s album “All Is One” was released in North America on June 25th  2013 [one day earlier internationally] via Century Media Records. The cover artwork for the follow-up to 2010’s “The Never Ending Way Of ORwarriOR” was created by the French artist Metastazis [Paradise Lost, As I Lay Dying, Sonne Adam, Watain] by perfectly incorporating the three biggest religious symbols into one piece of art.

“All Is One” was mixed by Jens Bogren [James Labrie, Devin Townsend Project, Opeth] and was recorded in three different countries: Israel, Turkey and Sweden. Ironically, these countries are Jewish, Muslim and Christian, respectively, which strengthens the Orphaned Land message of unity through music. Over 40 musicians were used to flesh out the sound of “All Is One”, including 25 choir singers and eight classical violin, viola and cello players from Turkey.
