Orphaned Land have released a video for their new track Like Orpheus.
The song is lifted from the band’s upcoming album Unsung Prophets & Dead Messiahs and features a guest appearance from Blind Guardian’s Hansi Kürsch.
The follow-up to 2013’s All Is One will be released on January 26 via Century Media Records.
Kürsch says: “What a marvellous song. I heard it and fell in love with it immediately. What keeps me so thrilled about it is this perfect blend of different musical cultures and the constant wave of emotions these guys have woven together in a stroke of genius.
“This song, as all their works, is a strong statement for humanity. I am really proud to be a part of such a fantastic family.”
Frontman Kobi Farhi says of the promo: “In this video clip, we chose to tell the true story of some metal heads from the Middle East.
“Their daily lives is some sort of a cave. Their culture, the way they dress and their customs may give an impression that they are utterly different, while the truth is that they escape to the same world, the world of metal, while they never met each other and cannot start to imagine how similar and one they are.”
Orphaned Land recently announced a 2018 European tour which will take place throughout February and March.
Unsung Prophets & Dead Messiahs is now available for pre-order (opens in new tab). Find the cover art and tracklist below.
