4 stars After hearing the latest album by Orphaned Land but by curiosity I tried to feel Mabol. I can not deny that it has caused a strange effect. I felt and suffered, until you reach the conclusion that the transaction is musically enjoyable. It is not easy to make a good record without playing any kind of music, or if you prefer everyone. Singing metal, with a typical hard rock sound, adding a little 'sound popular throughout the Arab-Jewish tradition, I can remember even Alan Stivell Olympia with Celtic atmosphere (really), some flamenco moment,why not? Open with barely a few moments of jazz rock, symphonic overture a bit impromptu , a touch of Breetish Steel of Judas here and there sung by Opeth to dress the whole and the disc is done. It is not my idea of music but I admit that I enjoy the disc, if taken in small doses, and 4 stars for the courage to give it. Patton is not the singer but he copes well in all genres and is a lot. A disk eventually more classic than it looks, played with heart and eleganza.I repeat is not my thing but I enjoyed. Zorn is open mind...
