4 stars This work keeps impressing me for over a year, now. It is great blend of progressive metal, death metal, eastern (hebrew and arabic) ethnic music. Singer has such a beautiful voice, rare in today's music. And from time to time, he also play role of growler, which gives great dynamics to music. Album is conceptual, its theme is modern version of the bible story about great flood. There are some ancient ethnic instruments here, some great female vocals, some excellent sound textures, even fantastic orchestration. This is something special in today's progressive metal music, these guys recorded again after long silence, and what a comeback! Orphaned Land will have great musician called Steven Wilson as a producer on the next album. I expect massive masterpiece, and one of the best metal albums ever. I keep five- star rating for that album, but it needs to make me cry of beauty, first.
