Israel's very own Orphaned Land is in the final stages of recording their long awaited 6th full length album. The name of the new album will be All Is One, and it will see the light of day on June 24th in Europe and June 25th in North America via Century Media Records.
Vocalist Kobi Farhi comments about the new album and the progressive evolution of the band's music since their last full length, The Never Ending Way Of ORwarriOR:
"I'll say it plain and simple - All Is One is Orphaned Land's best album so far, I feel that we took all aspects to a new level - the way we write, arrange, play and produce. We recorded the album in 3 countries (Turkey, Sweden & Israel) and it turned out so strong, we can't stop listening to it. The album is very rich with more than 40 people participating (singer choirs, many violins, and many traditional instruments, too). Our secret in the band was always the fact that unlike many other bands, Orphaned Land doesn't follow ONE mastermind that writes everything, we work in a way that All Is One. We create our music in a perfect blend of synergy and harmony and all the band members are a part of this process, we translate the album's title and message exactly in the way we work, and we always hope we could give a bit of an inspiration to the people in the tragic Middle Eastern lands. We have fans all over the Middle East, we live in a place where huge amounts of people who consider themselves to be enemies still share one thing in common, they are all fans of Orphaned Land, and in these lands of orphans and bloody holy wars our only weapon is music, and hopefully we will grow to understand that All Is One."
