‘Orphaned Land’ Confirmed as Special Guest for ‘Blind Guardian’s’ Euro-Tour 2015


OL AWARDOrphaned Land, the leaders of Middle Eastern metal, are happy to announce that they will support Blind Guardian as special guest on their Euro Tour 2015.

Kobi Farhi from Orphaned Land comments: “We are very happy to be the guests of Blind Guardian, they are one of our favorite metal bands and we are very good friends. Marcus Siepen is also going to be our guest guitarist at the Rock Hard Festival show and it seems like the fans are going to have lots of fun with this collaboration between the bands on the roads, we are thrilled and excited!”

Orphaned Land are also about to hit our stages to celebrate the 10th anniversary of their sophisticated concept album “Mabool”. Starting October 30th in France, singer Kobi Farhi is much exited to play all songs of the “Mabool” album to the European crowd. Dates and locations are listed below.

Orphaned Land’s latest album ”All Is One” was released in North America on June 25 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 made available as a limited deluxe book edition, including three bonus songs and a bonus DVD, as well as limited double gatefold LP, including the three bonus songs and in different vinyl colors. A standard jewelcase CD format and digital download is also available.

The limited-edition version of “All Is One” contains a very special bonus DVD with some very exclusive music clips and an interesting documentary about the genesis and recording of the album.

Orphaned Land‘s new effort is the band’s first to feature guitarist Chen Balbus following the departure of Matty Svatizky in June 2012 due to “personal” and “professional” issues.

“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.
