Oriental metal pioneers ORPHANED LAND kicks off its North America tour this Saturday, May 5th in support of their critically acclaimed new album, Unsung Prophets & Dead Messiahs. The tour finds the heralded group as direct support to Faroese viking metalists TYR, along with support from Ghost Ship Octavius and Aeternam.
The first stop on the tour is in Brooklyn, NY this Saturday, May 5th, at The Knitting Factory.
Vocalist KOBI FARHI commented, “We are so excited to be back to the USA, following our just released new album! Make sure you visit us on the road and check our new tunes! Who knows when we will be back next! “
“Gripping from front-to-back” (Metal Injection), ORPHANED LAND’s sixth album is fueled by righteous anger at the state of humanity in present day. Veering from epic brutality to ornate theatricality, armed with an astonishing array of inspired melodies and euphoric crescendos, Unsung Prophets & Dead Messiahs is the finest and most powerful album the band have produced.
Featuring guest appearances from prog rock legend Steve Hackett (ex-Genesis) and metal luminaries Hansi Kürsch (Blind Guardian) and Tomas Lindberg (At The Gates/The Lurking Fear), Unsung Prophets & Dead Messiahs finds the band “at their creative peak, more confident and stronger than ever before.
Unsung Prophets & Dead Messiahs is available now as digital album on all download and streaming platforms, Jewelcase CD and Black Gatefold 2LP+CD.
