Orphaned Land Posts New Video

Israel's Orphaned Land has now teamed up with Metal.de to debut the atmospheric video for the band's latest single, "Brother." This track is taken from Orphaned Land's upcoming 6th studio album, "All Is One," which is due out June 24th in Europe and June 25th in North America via Century Media Records.

Check out the clip at Metal.de or in the player below. Kobi Farhi (vocals) comments about the track:

"This is a song that Itshak is singing to his brother Ishmael. According to the bible, they were both the sons of Abraham from two different mothers. Today, Itshak is known as the father of the Israeli nation while Ishmael is known as the father of the Arab nation. Historically, that means of course that it's a historical fact that Israelis and Arabs are brothers and we believe that the deepest source for our actual conflict still lies there, between the two brothers.

"Both sides today are so focused on being right in the conflict and fill themselves with hate. Every side is so busy with being the victim, and today it doesn't make sense to either one of the sides that we are historically brothers. People forgot it, forgot that our language is alike, as well as our names and history. More...

Orphaned Land Announces New Album

Israel's very own Orphaned Land is in the final stages of recording a 6th full-length album. The name of the new album will be "All Is One," and it will see the light of day on June 24th in Europe and June 25th in North America via Century Media Records.

Vocalist Kobi Farhi comments about the new album and the progressive evolution of the band's music:

"I'll say it plain and simple - 'All Is One' is Orphaned Land's best album so far, I feel that we took all aspects to a new level - the way we write, arrange, play and produce. We recorded the album in 3 countries (Turkey, Sweden & Israel) and it turned out so strong, we can't stop listening to it. The album is very rich with more than 40 people participating (singer choirs, many violins, and many traditional instruments too).

"Our secret in the band was always the fact that unlike many other bands, Orphaned Land doesn't follow ONE master mind that writes everything, we work in a way that All Is One. We create our music in a perfect blend of synergy and harmony and all the band members are a part of this process, we translate the album's title and message exactly in the way we work, and we always hope we could give a bit of an inspiration to the people in the tragic Middle Eastern lands.

"We have fans all over the Middle East, we live in a place where huge amounts of people who consider themselves to be enemies still share one thing in common, they are all fans of Orphaned Land, and in these lands of orphans and bloody holy wars our only weapon is music, and hopefully we will grow to understand that All Is One."

Orphaned Land Petitioning For Peace Prize

Century Media has issued the following announcement about a petition circulating online for Orphaned Land to be considered for a Nobel Peace Prize:

"Orphaned Land is one of the most respected and loved musicians over the entire globe, a band that dedicates their existence to the world language of metal music and cross-cultural understanding. While not overtly political, Orphaned Land is nevertheless proud of creating a reality of coexistence that has escaped politicians and peacemakers alike. They often speak of the power of music to turn purported enemies into friends, frequently pay homage and encourage collaborations with Arab and Muslim artists and have made their latest album free to download for anyone in a number of Middle Eastern and North African countries. Over the past years these warriors of light achieved great things for the freedom of art, cultural and religious understanding.

"Now, a petition to the Norwegian Nobel Committee has been submitted to consider Orphaned Land for the 2013 Nobel Peace Prize, and we think this is really something to support. Please sign this petition if you feel the same way."

Vocalist Kobi Farh comments: "This is my personal request to all my friends from the Middle East, Turkey, and in general from all my Muslim friends! We know for a long time now that we are above politics, we know that if it was in our hands, peace would have prevailed right away. Please enter this link and sign if you find us worthy, please also spread the word and share it on your pages. I send my endless love to all of you and all my love and best greetings for the coming holyday in a few days. Salam/Shalom/Peace."

The online petition can be found at this location.

Orphaned Land Splits With Guitarist Matti Svatizky

Israeli based folk metal band Orphaned Land announced the departure of guitarist Matti Scatizky for personal and professional reasons. In a post on the band's Facebook page, Schatizky stated:

"To all of Orphaned Land's fans, from this moment on I will no longer be a part of the band. We had great years together, and I think that our achievements were beyond only the musical grounds. However, it is time for me to move on with my life. There are issues both on the personal and the professional levels that made me come to this decision, which has not been an easy one, and which I'm whole with and sure that will bring many positive things in the future.
I wish the band many more fruitful years of creation and joy, and I wish you, the fans, many more years of enjoyment of what Orphaned Land has to offer, and who knows, maybe we'll meet again someday in the future, this way or another. Forever Orphaned…"

The rest of the band commented: "How can you sum up 2 decades with a brother and a partner? the answer is simple: you can't. Matti is deeply immersed in "Orphaned Land" history and his uniqueness will surely be missed. All we can do is respect Matti's decision and wish him the best the future can offer for him. 'Orphaned Land' was always a home for friends and shall remain such a place for Matti. Forever Orphaned, beloved brother!"
