Israel’s ORPHANED LAND pioneered Middle Eastern metal music and the band just completed a highly successful North American stint with Suidakra that included two high profile SXSW performances. The great folks at Metal Injection caught up with Kobi (vocals) and Jossi (guitars) for a candid, in-depth interview when they rolled through BB Kings in NYC and you can view that interview now at the link below along with a slew of exclusive live footage from that show.

ORPHANED LAND’s highly acclaimed fourth studio opus The Never Ending Way of ORwarriOR is a sophisticated concept album taking their unique brand of exotic, heavy music to soaring new heights in terms of complexity and catchiness.
The Never Ending Way Of ORwarriOR was mixed by Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree, Opeth), who is also responsible for several keyboard parts on the new album. The time has come for Middle Eastern metal to take over.
