Orphaned Land singer Kobi Farhi and Amaseffer drummer Erez Yohanan have revealed they’re working on a concept album together.

The pair are collaborating on a soundtrack with other Orphaned Land members for theatre production Kna’an, which is the brainchild of director Walter Wayers. He’s written a play which tells the biblical story of Abraham with a modern perspective.

The soundtrack is set for release on August 26 via Century Media Records and is said to feature “ballads and metal songs about all the characters and inner conflicts of the heroes in this complex episode – a story that still reflects until this day the three Abrahamic religions.”

Further album details will be issued in due course.

Orphaned Land, meanwhile, have several festival shows planned over the coming months and will head out on the road to celebrate their 25th anniversary in November.
