Israel's ORPHANED LAND kick off the New Year with a brand-new track from their upcoming opus The Never Ending Way Of ORwarriOR.
Singer Kobi Farhi explains: "The track 'Disciples Of The Sacred Oath II' is a heavy song, both musically and lyrically and it is one of the most important tracks of the album by its meaning. Indeed, it calls for a laying down of arms, to realize that the warriors are first of all brothers: 'Lay down your swords, blood and flesh you share'...'Shall we see the end of war, bloodbrothers?' It is definitively the most outspoken text we ever wrote on this subject. Furthermore, as this song contains Arabic lyrics, we would like to dedicate it to our Arab fans and we hope that one day we will sing it together in a show in their home countries!"
Check out "Disciples Of The Sacred Oath II" at the band's MySpace page: Myspace page.
