Orphaned Land have set All Is One as the title of their next album which they will release in June, almost three years after their latest prog masterpiece The Never Ending Way Of ORwarriOR. The group is in the final process of recording the new album and still hasn't given us audio teases at this point.
All Is One surfaces on June 24th in Europe (June 25th in North America) under Century Media Records. The recording details were previously reported here.
Singer Kobi Farhi explains the material as follows: "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 in sound with more than 40 people participating (choirs, violins, and many traditional instruments, too). Our secret recipe was always the fact that unlike many other bands, Orphaned Land doesn't follow ONE master mind 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 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."
Awesome, can’t wait! By the way, cover art and tracklist just got released!
Pre-order “All in one”
If the new track is any indication, this album is going to be as good, if not better than mabool. I’m just hoping they retain their prog. I want to see long epic songs with lots of folk instruments.
I’m surprised it hasn’t leaked yet… It releases this friday in Germany.
It’s already out in Japan and tomorrow in Germany so we should have a leak fairly soon.
i’m listening to it right now!!!
