Orphaned Land have released a stream of their new track Chains Fall To Gravity.
The track will feature on the band’s upcoming album Unsung Prophets & Dead Messiahs and features a guest appearance from guitarist Steve Hackett.
The follow-up to 2013’s All Is One will launch tomorrow (January 26) via Century Media Records.
Frontman Kobi Farhi says: “Chains Fall To Gravity is a very important song on our new album and its concept.
“It is the point where the hero is being unchained and starts his way out of the cave, and for the first time he has to leave anything he thought to be the truth.
“I remember telling Steve Hackett about this song and the concept and he was definitely put all these emotions into the guitar solo he performed here, which is in my opinion, one of the best guitar solos ever on an Orphaned Land song.
“We are just too lucky and honoured to have a rock legend playing with us in this one!”
Hackett adds: “I was thrilled to have Kobi sing on one of my album tracks. His voice sounds beautiful and mystical on the track.
“It was equally a pleasure to do a guitar solo for this exciting track on Orphaned Land’s album, which has a great vibe!”
Unsung Prophets & Dead Messiahs, which is now available for pre-order (opens in new tab), also features guest appearances from Blind Guardian’s Hansi Kürsch and Tomas Lindberg from At The Gates.
