French webzine Inwë[b]zine conducted an interview with Kobi Farhi (vocals) and Yossi Sa'aron (Sassi) (guitar) of Israeli progressive folk metal masters ORPHANED LAND on May 9, 2010 in Lyon, France during the band's European tour. You can now watch the chat below.
On May 22, ORPHANED LAND performed at the Ramat Gan stadium in Tel Aviv as the support act for METALLICA.
ORPHANED LAND's new album, "The Never Ending Way Of ORwarriOR", sold around 600 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at No. 80 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
"The Never Ending Way Of ORwarriOR" was released in Europe on January 25. Mixed by Steven Wilson (PORCUPINE TREE, OPETH),who is also responsible for several keyboard parts on the new CD, the effort — which was made available in the U.S. on February 9 via Century Media Records — is a sophisticated concept album which takes ORPHANED LAND's unique brand of exotic, heavy music to soaring new heights in terms of complexity and catchiness.
The CD's artwork was created by Zen Two and Native.
