Okay, after yet another delay (I should stop calling it "delays"...) here's the next letter. This time, it's "Orphaned Land"!
Orphaned Land are a Metal band from Israel. Now, that's something you don't see every day.
The band was founded in 1991 under the name "Resurrection", but soon changed the name to "Orphaned Land", as well as changing their musical style to Metal, with oriental influences.
In 1993 they signed a deal with the french label Holy Records. Just one year later their debut album "Sahara" was released. Before that debut album they only released one demo called "The Beloved's Cry".
In 1996 the second LP "El Norra Alila" was released. After that the band had to pause for some time because things became very difficult in Israel. Also in 1997, they signed a deal with Century Media.
After their pause they released the EP "The Calm Before the Flood" in 2004, which contained some live versions of their songs. Also in 2004 their third album "Mabool - The Story of the Three Sons of Seven" was released ("Mabool" is hebrew for "The Deluge").
In 2008 they where featured in the documentary "Global Metal".
In 2010 they opened Metallica's show in Israel. Also this year the album "The Never Ending Way of ORwarriOR" was released.
Sadly I don't own any albums from Orphaned Land, so I picked a song at random. This is "Whisper my name when you dream"; the 10th song on the second album:
