Israel's Orphaned Land Report On Performance At Rock The Nations Open Air Festival in Istanbul

Israel’s leading metal band Orphaned Land, performed live at the Rock The Nations Open Air Festival in Istanbul, Turkey over the weekend. An amalgamation of cultures and traditions, this was the ideal setting for the band’s live performance. Their new release from Century Media Records, Mabool, combines histories and teachings from the three monotheistic religions that at once divide and unite the Middle East.

Vocalist Kobi Farhi reports: “We got back yesterday from this historic festival and our performance was unbelievable - one of the best of our lives!!! The crowd knew our songs and the whole place was singing (more than 5,000 people!!). They even sang in Hebrew! We also did a song in Turkish and the place freaked out. We co-headlined the first day alongside Pain Of Salvation. Turkey is a great home for Orphaned Land, as the border of east and west. Try to imagine it yourself: the sad reality of the Middle East, and then there is a concert where people from Turkey, Israel, Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia all sing together the songs from the same band. It’s amazing! I’m speechless!”
