Orphaned Land Posts "Making Of Sapari" Video Online

Israeli heavy metal outfit Orphaned Land has posted a new video online, which takes a look at the making of their latest music video, "Sapari." You can check it out below. The song comes from the bands fourth studio album, "The Never Ending Way of ORwarriOR." Speaking on the song, the video and its meaning, vocalist Kobi explained: "With the video clip, we are trying to reflect this inner search of a man and his spirit. The actor, Matti Atlas, was filmed in a room, sitting in a box, writing scared stuff. This is the exact way they used to sit and write in the old days in Yemen. He is writing… searching. At one point, he starts to freak out; to write on the walls, on his body, getting even possessed in a way. He is alone, confused, searching for answers and meaning, just as we all are.

"Sapari (means ‘tell me’ in hebrew) is a 17th century poem written by Sa'adia ben Amram, a jewish Poet who lived in Yemen back then. The song is a duet between the poet and his soul. The poet seeks for his soul and asks her where is ‘she'. The soul, described as a dove in the song, answers that she is at the high chamber, heavens, preparing herself to wear the shape of a human body. In a way, this song reflects the inner search that every human is going through. W e are getting to know our self more and more each and every day, and our journey here is far from being easy."
