ORPHANED LAND picture
Day by day, in every news program on this planet, the Middle-East conflict is a major topic and it is one of the reasons the world we all live in is a world apart. For decades every attempt to make peace between Israel and the Arabian world has remained futile and the death toll keeps rising. Where politicians have failed, a mere metal band daringly labelling its style “Jewish Muslim Metal” or “Middle Eastern Progressive Metal” has actually achieved the unimaginable and united Israeli and Arabian people in spite of all their cultural, religious and political differences and conflicts!

Israel's ORPHANED LAND is probably the only band from this country that has managed to succeed at building up a huge following among Muslims and Arabian people. These fans communicate freely via the band’s social networking pages, some of them even proudly bearing ORPHANED LAND tattoos, even though that puts them

ORPHANED LAND Mabool: The Story of the Three Sons of Seven

siLLy puPPy
Bands like Secret Chiefs 3, System Of A Down and my favorite prog metal band FROM the Middle East – Myrath have much a better Middle Eastern / Rock / Metal fusion sound than this. I don't find the material here very interesting and it seems like one of those paint-by-numbers type of albums. The lofty concept just doesn't seem like it is matched with songwriting quality. The songs that work best for me are the less metal ones. The growly vocals remind me of Unexpect. The occasional keyboard runs remind me of Dream Theater.

When I read about this it sounds like it should be great but when I listen to this I don't understand the hype. This certainly isn't the worst thing i've heard and there are some good moments but after 67 minutes of this it gets very tedious and well boring. If they would have trimmed this down a bit and edited a lot I might like this more but then again they need to add something to spice this up as well. I haven't heard any other albums by ORPHANED LAND but after finally hearing this release I can't say i'm in a hurry to either.

There is no doubt that Orphaned Land are one of the most important bands in the world today, in the way that they are working hard at bringing together different people and religions who are often at war with each other. “I could never imagine in my wildest imagination that one day an Israeli band would be followed by thousands of Muslims from all over the world,” says frontman Kobi Farhi, noting that Orphaned Land are the proud recipients of four Peace Awards issued by their Turkish brethren. “If we do a show in Istanbul, Turkey - which is the only Muslim country where we’re allowed to play - people come all the way from Iran, Egypt, Lebanon and Jordan just to see us. These are enemies that are fighting each other coming to see us as one group of people. I’d say that historically the Jews and Arabs are brothers because we are all descendants of Abraham, but the conflict and the differences are so big that we’ve forgotten that. Discovering the fact that our music is the instrument to remind people that we are all one is shocking to me. I never imagined that blood enemies would open their eyes because of it. That’s why the title of the album is ‘All Is One’.” The album was mixed by Jens Bogren (Kreator, Amon Amarth, James LaBrie, Devin Townsend Project, Opeth) and was recorded in three different countries: Israel, Turkey and Sweden. Ironically, these are countries that 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, including 25 choir singers and eight classical violin, viola and cello players from Turkey. When one studies the artwork, one sees that it is comprised of the symbols of Islam, Judaism and Christianity. But, all of their work would be of no use if the music wasn’t worth hearing, so what is it like?

First off it is virtually impossible to describe, although they often remind me of System of a Down for some reason, as they mix metal with folk, then add in elements from symphonic and power, plus death and plenty of traditional sounds from Israel. I don’t know much about Jewish music, but can hear elements that I recognise immediately. It is this flux and change of styles that make this band musically so interesting. I first became interested in Orphaned Land when I read about ‘The Never Ending Way Of ORWarriOR’ (which was produced by Steven Wilson), and knew that I had to grab a copy for myself and when I heard it I was just blown away. But, this new album is a step change, as they have moved far beyond what they have produced previously. This is progressive metal in the truest sense, as it is creating something that is mixing and blending from so many different styles and cultures to create something that is new and exciting, yet is always accessible and dynamic.

I fell in love with this album the very first time I played it, and repeated listens have only reinforced my view that this is truly essential. www.centurymedia.com

ORPHANED LAND The Beloved's Cry

Demo · 1993 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Time Signature
Above you all...

Genre: melodic death metal with a hint of Middle Eastern folk

Now hailed as the leading Middle-Eastern folk metal band preaching peace and tolerance, Orphaned Land actually started out an extreme metal band. Their 1993-demo "The Beloved's Cry" captures their transition from an extreme metal band to their present-day status. It was reissued in the late 90s, and End of the Light Records have reissued it this year as well, this time in digipak format.

Stylistically, the release leans more towards death metal than Middle-Eastern folk metal, and the listener can expect lots of growls and aggressive crunching riffage; there are even a couple of blastbeats every now and then. That being said, the eclectic and progressive folk metal tendencies of their later releases are definitely present on the release, in the form of, for instance, the Middle-Eastern figures that many of the guitar solos are based on, as well as in certain vocal melodies (in addition to the growls, there are clean male and female vocals on the release) and in the more progressive and atmospheric passages that are scattered throughout the release.

The release also features two bonus tracks, which are much more oriented towards Middle-Eastern progressive music, and even features some electronica elements. They are definitely interesting, but seem a bit misplaced against the backdrop of the otherwise dark and extreme-metal oriented music of the original demo.

The production is, of course, of 1990s demo tape quality, so do not expect a pristine and polished-sounding release. Still, the production is way better than the majority of metal-demos released in the early 1990s.

Perhaps one of the first ever so-called Oriental death metal releases, "The Beloved's Cry" is definitely worth a listen if you are a fan of Orphaned Land or of later acts such as Arkan or Scarab.

This is an album that is very much like a musical onion - upon first listen it may seem simple, but every listen after that you peel back a layer and find complexity. Orphaned Land creates an incredibly unique musical experience, melding together Progressive, Metal, Death Metal, and traditional Arabic and Jewish soundscapes to produce a style of music that many of their fans have dubbed "Oriental Metal". To add to this blending of styles, throughout the album they employ the use of many traditional instruments (the Oud? The Saz? The Bouzouki?),songs contain lyrics written in multiple languages, a Yemenite folk singer adds guest vocals, and the band puts their spin on centuries old traditional Jewish and Yemenite folk songs. The lyrics even borrow concepts from Islam, Christianity, and Judaism. This is an extraordinary album, and I can't see any way to give it anything but 5 stars.

Personally, I just can't get aboard Orphaned Land's Mabool. Despite being their most acclaimed album and hailed as a classic fusion of progressive metal and traditional music, on listening to it I can't really see it as anything other than a thin veneer of occasional Middle Eastern traditional music motifs over what is actually a fairly standard progressive metal sound, rather than a fundamental fusion of traditional music and metal as accomplished by some works of Mr Bungle or Secret Chiefs 3. It's a fun enough album, but I really don't think it's the creative breakthrough it's often made out to be.
