5 stars Incredible and magnificient progressive death folk metal album. I get a copy after reading some reviews here and I was impressed with this terrible (in a good sense) mix of rock and middle-east folk music. The tunes are beautiful; the acoustic, chorus and female voices parts are awsome, musicians play as well as any band you could imagine and the concept and lyrics are very atractive. Listening this music first band that came to my band was Opeth, but they play, if that is possible, in a more complex mood. I'm agree with the previous reviews. It's an instant cult classic prog rock opus. They aren't a new neo-classical band with a guitar hero playing solos til the infinity and they aren't a new DT or Ayreon clone. There are a lot of bands around the globe trying to play metal with folk approach and Orphaned Land are IMO the best of all of them.
