Hank Pearl of The Daily Rock conducted an interview with vocalist Kobi Farhi of Israeli progressive folk metal masters ORPHANED LAND before the band's March 14, 2010 concert at the Bottom Lounge in Chicago, Illinois. Watch the chat below.
"The Never Ending Way Of ORwarriOR", the fourth album from ORPHANED LAND, 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 celebrated the release of its new album, "The Never Ending Way Of ORwarriOR", with a special "launch party" on February 4 at the Theatre Club in Tel-Aviv, Israel.
