Orphaned Land – El Norra Alila

The second album by Orphaned Land – a band that caught my attention quite early. I remember being astonished by this music right from the start with their opening track “Find Yourself Discover God”. Although I am not normally a fan of progressive metal this band surely was worth the listen for me. Kobi Farhi has some great vocal skills and their music is unique to any metal or rock I have heard. The remaining album maintains its oriental touches throughout through vocal usage and middle eastern instruments. I recommend the entire album. Especially highly addictive¬†tracks like El Meod Na Ala, The Neverending Way, Joy and The Evil Urge.
