North America July 17, 2012: End Of The Light Records will be releasing the brand-new, 20th Anniversary edition of Orphaned Land’s very first recordings, “The Beloveds Cry”. Originally released in 1993, this limited digipak adds liner notes inside, along with freshly-remastered original recordings and 2 bonus tracks. Go back to what started it all for these Israeli adventurers. “The Beloveds Cry” is being distributed by DisManic via eOne Distribution.
It’s impossible to ignore the Middle- East conflict as a major topic affecting the planet as a whole. For decades every attempt to make peace between Israel and the Arabian world has remained futile and the death toll keeps rising. Where politicians have failed, a mere metal band daringly labeling its style “Jewish Muslim Metal” or “Middle Eastern Progressive Metal” has actually achieved the unimaginable and united Israeli and Arabian people in spite of all their cultural, religious and political differences and conflicts!
“We are very proud to release the 20th anniversary edition of The Beloved’s Cry as this is our youth, first ever recording as Orphaned Land. We have recorded it when we were 17 byears old and financed it from pocket money we got from our parents. This always bring some nice, old memories & dreams we had back then, and it’s great to see we achived many of them in our 20 years carrier. I think this edition is a must to every Orphaned Land fan.” – Kobi Farhi
