Israeli progressive folk metal masters ORPHANED LAND will release their new studio album, "Unsung Prophets & Dead Messiahs", on January 26, 2018 via Century Media. Jens Bogren once again took over mixing and mastering duties of what turned out to be the band’s best and biggest production so far.
"Unsung Prophets & Dead Messiahs" will feature a guest appearance of guitar virtuoso Steve Hackett as well as guest vocal appearances by no other than Hansi Kürsch (BLIND GUARDIAN) and Tomas Lindberg (AT THE GATES). The great album artwork was created by Valnoir.
Singer and frontman Kobi Farhi comments: "We are thrilled and so happy to finally reveal you the great artwork of 'Unsung Prophets & Dead Messiahs'!
"Our music has always been a combination of anger, tragedy, protest and joy.
"We can't wait for you to hear the thirteen brand new tracks of this album. As always, it will be very eclectic — no song sounds like the other and the whole album is a one big musical journey.
"We feel that this album takes our feelings to a new level of anger, protest and tragedy.
"The cover speaks for itself and it was made as tribute to the way governments design their money."
