Right before the western world drowns in the annual Christmas chaos, Israel’s ORPHANED LAND report in with a special holiday message to all their fans worldwide:
“Hello there to all the warriors of light. ORPHANED LAND is working very hard these days to promote the new album The Never Ending Way Of ORwarriOR. We’re doing a lot of interviews and media news and symbolically it is the only time of the year where the three Abrahamic religions are celebrating a holiday at the same time.
“We are taking a small break here to congratulate our Christian fans for Christmas, our Muslim fans for the beginning of the new Muslim year and our Jewish fans – Happy Hanukah!
And above all – to the metalheads all around there – the metal scene is a great example to people, leaders and politicians of how to create a global language, how to accept one another despite our differences, and above all and because of that – we are proud to be metalheads! May this synergy and time of unification grow in us to learn and to understand each other better in the Middle East and all over the world.
“Thy name shall be henceforth ORwarriOR”
Peace, Shalom, Salam.”
As a first teaser track for the band’s new album The Never Ending Way Of ORwarriOR the song “Sapari” has also been launched on the band’s MySpace page, so check it out here:
