Actually. Believe it or not it was Germany's Vanden Plas that led me to the discovery of this band.
I've not delved into all 3 of their albums yet. They are on my hit list. Carry quite an influential tree of great artist that are attached to their sound....Tull, Caravan, Necktar. I wonder if they took a page out of Rainbow's playbook for sound?
Anyway. What can you tell me about them? Are they kind of a psycher band? Do they accompany an orchestra?

Ahhhh...so much prog to discover. I'm glad it's like this for me though. ;)
Oh sorry man I didn't mean the band Sahara, I meant do you know Orphaned's debut Sahara TongueAnd regarding the band Sahara, I have their third album and although it's not bad I prefer all the bands you mentioned before.


Sahara.....of course the album! Leave it to me to over think a question. Lol.
Actually my friend, I've not heard Sahara. Is the only one I haven't heard yet!
I liked El Norra Alilia as a whole, but Sahara I've only heard bits and pieces of it like Beloved's Cry and the Storm Still rages inside. Not bad and I've even heard some acoustic versions too!

Anyway. I must say that mabool is their best album. It's outstanding. Actually, with all the production hype for ALL IS ONE should have been for Mabool! That album lives up to the hype! I can't tell you how many times I've cranked THE BIRTH OF THREE. it's their magnum opus!
Threshold still have all the goods that makes them one of the best classic rock/Prog metal bands in the world. 2014's For The Journey is worth a serious listen.

Guys. I gotta say that I'm not really blown away with OrphanLand's new album, ALL IS ONE. it really doesn't have the heavy grandeur that I so dearly loved in MABOOL. Softer and shorter songs was the theme on this one.
It's a good album, but a far cry from that of Mabool. I also was expecting more with all the hype built around the massive production this album was going to have with regarding the massive orchestra and Choirs. The choirs were actually used quite sparsely throughout the album. Ummmm.....I feel a tad let down.

Stargazer was one of my favourite songs of all time a couple years ago. A terrific song, one of the 70's brightest highlights. Wink

I've just discovered Orphened Land and I really enjoy them. Some parts remind me of Alan Stivell's sound. Folk Prog at it's finest,.

I like them both, but Orphaned Land is so original - such a unique combination of sounds and cultures.

No way. Orphaned Land is something like Dio-era Rainbow with growls and genuine Middle Eastern musical instruments.


RAINBOW RIIIIIIIIIIIIISING!!!! Stargazer anyone? Yup. I associate any hard rock influences to be traced back to the great RAINBOW of 1975-1976. incredible.

Their next album is gonna be on grander scale. Huge Orchestra and choirs. I'm buying it for sure.

Definitely! I feel I can always count on them to release another superb album.

Equal. Both carry very different styles of prog metal, and since I am a fan of both I'd say their equal.
2 quality bands, but I've give the uniqueness vote to Orphanland. Not too many bands from the middle east that can bring it like they can! Really infuse their cultural instruments so well with their music.

Still equal though cause I think RIVERSIDE Is Poland's best.

Riverside by a big margin, but did like Mabool by Orphaned Land.

necroing threads?............sorry, mr no-necroing officer....
 
i just stated an opinion like everyone does in this forum. what is exactly the problem?
 
orphaned land versus riverside - folk, death, doom metal versus progressive rock/metal.  in my opinion not exactly comparable. so people vote on the the one they prefer. Like i did on riverside. At least  i can write something consciously because i know and like both bands.
