‘Orphaned Land’ Gets Unplugged


Israeli progressive folk metal masters Orphaned Landwere forced to cancel their concert in Marseille, France last night [November 11] at Le Poste à Galène due to “electricity power problems in the city.” To keep their fans happy, the bandmembers then took to the street in front of the venue and put on a rare acoustic performance. Check out video footage below.

Orphaned Land‘s new concert DVD, The Road To OR-Shalem, was released on October 24 in Europe and November 1 in the U.S. via Century Media Records.

According to a press release, The Road To OR-Shalem “is the premier Middle Eastern progressive metal crusaders’ DVD debut and documents the band’s incredible mission to unite warring factions in their home region through the power of music. Filmed in Tel Aviv, Israel in December 2011 The Road To OR-Shalem features nearly two hours of stunning live material, as well as a second bonus DVD. The bonus DVD material includes additional live footage, a behind-the-scenes documentary and video clips.”

Orphaned Land just started their fall/winter European Tour. Special guests on The Tour To OR Shalem are French/Algerian/Moroccan oriental Metal band Arkan. Tunisian progressive metal band Myrath and French punk rockers ArtWeg. [Tour dates below].
