Orphaned Land “Let The Truce Be Known”
Orphaned Land are not being subtle at all about the message behind their new album. All is One (that name’s a doozy in and of itself) goes right for it with this very direct album cover. And now they’ve unleashed a new song called “Let The Truce Be Known” (get it?), for which you can watch the lyric video below:
All joshing aside, the song is actually quite good — as is “Our Own Messiah,” which you can listen to here — and I think (I hope) the message is one we can all get behind. I never get super into Orphaned Land in the past (nothing against ’em, just never fell in love), but maybe All is One is going to be the album for me. I like the way the band incorporates their Middle Eastern influences into metal without beating listeners over the head with them, and I especially enjoy Kobi Farhi’s vocals.
All is One comes out on June 24 via Century Media.
