ORPHANED LAND Unplugged At CENTURY MEDIA RECORDS WarehouseMay 20, 2010
Israeli progressive folk metal masters ORPHANED LAND are currently touring all over Europe in support of their fourth album, "The Never Ending Way Of ORwarriOR". Last week they stopped by the European Century Media headquarters in Germany and played a very unconventional and natural unplugged session at the company's warehouse. Sticks and drums were replaced by spoons, garbage cans and cereal boxes, and with no amplification you can witness ORPHANED LAND as pure and improvised as possible in front of shelves filled with thousands of CD boxes, resulting in a very special atmosphere.
"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.
ORPHANED LAND will support METALLICA on May 22, 2010 at the Ramat Gan stadium in Tel Aviv.
