Orphaned Land Sheds Light On Latest Album "Unsung Prophets & Dead Messiahs"

Heavy metal may have been born in the midlands of Britain but over the course of nearly five decades, it's become a global phenomenon, spreading across the world and finding homes in the most unlikely of places. It's also empowered musicians and activists to use this heavier and more aggressive music to spread their messages. Nowhere is this more pertinent than Orphaned Land, the veteran metal outfit from Israel whose goal of peace in the Middle East and indeed throughout the world.

At the Bloodstock Open Air festival this year, I had the opportunity to speak with vocalist Kobi Farhi and drummer Matan Shmuely to discuss their latest album, "Unsung Prophets & Dead Messiahs," their first album in five years, as well as artwork, the issues affecting their homeland and more. You can watch the interview in full below.
