Kna’an Come On


Orphaned Land  man announces side project

Kna’an is a project that was born in the head of the Memmingen’s Landestheater director – Walter Wayers. Wayers wrote a complete new play with his modern perspective about the familiar biblical story of Abraham in the land of Kna’an and was looking for someone to fit in writing the soundtrack and songs for this purpose. That’s how a co-production between Kobi Farhi (Orphaned Land) and Erez Yohanan (Amaseffer) was born.

Kobi & Erez, with the help of Orphaned Land’s members, composed this special soundtrack consisting ballads and metal songs about all the characters and inner conflicts of the heroes in this complex episode, a story that still reflects till this day the three Abrahamic religions.

The concept album “Kna’an” will be released through Century Media Records on August 26th, 2016.

Orphaned Land will celebrate their 25th anniversary with an exciting journey into World Metal music which takes you through Russian-Chinese and Middle Eastern metal. All three bands embedded in their own different cultures and yet all brought together in a night of the finest Metal music the world has to offer:
