Orphaned Land's "Norra El Norra" Video Posted

The video for “Norra El Norra”, the second video from Israel’s Orphaned Land's album "Mabool," has been posted here. Singer Kobi Farhi explained the making of the video and how they filmed it:

We had decided to make a video out of existing live footage. I guess someone loves us up there because the next day we had a message waiting in our forum from an unknown director. He said he’d seen the "Ocean Land" video clip and that he would be willing to produce the "Norra El Norra" clip free of charge!!! We started preparing to shoot the video immediately. I first chose the cast, choosing some of my best friends (they had to run all day long, the poor bastards: I think they quit smoking because of us). Then we chose the 3 locations: Tsedek Fort (the band playing), the old city of Jaffa (the chase scene), and actually in my home (before the birth scene). It was a great experience and I think the result is excellent! You can download the clip at our site as well, and also watch photos of the making of at www.orphaned-land.com.

Orphaned Land's first U.S. appearance will be at Atlanta’s sold-out ProgPower USA VI.
