Well I have always been a fan of Middle Eastern music and in the past couple of months, Dream Theater has really got me sucked into Progressive Metal. But now I know every Dream Theater song in my head so much that I have started to look around for other progressive bands. Due to the Middle Eastern influences, Dream Theater songs like "Home" have become my favorite. Anyways I have tried bands like Between the Buried and Me and others and frankly just can't stand them, making me believe more and more that Dream Theater is the only band in the progressive genre that I am really going to be able to enjoy. For some reason if I band does Middle Eastern stuff, no matter what it is, I am probably going to really like it. For example, not a big fan of death metal, but I love Nile.

But...today I was just looking around and I came upon this band called Orphaned Land and read they are progressive and had major Middle Eastern influences, well if this was to be true, this would literally be THE single perfect band for me. So in the past 40 minutes or so I have listened to some of their songs and I am really impressed. The middle eastern influences are so awesome. I love the use of the ancient instruments combined with the Cradle of Filth style vocals, overall I think I am really really really really really going to like this band. Anyone else with me?

Yea, I did a review on there 2004 Mabool Album. The band is pretty sick, and I really need a new album from them. Kobi Farhi is a great singer. Great clean and deep growls. Guitar solo's that soar like an eagle. Just abot anything in the band is perfect.
