Oriental metal pioneers, ORPHANED LAND, have just released the digital single “Chains Fall To Gravity”, taken off their upcoming album “Unsung Prophets & Dead Messiahs”, which will be released this Friday, January 26th, 2018. The song features a guest solo performance by guitar virtuoso Steve Hackett (ex-GENESIS).

Kobi Farhi explains, “ʼChains Fall To Gravityʻ is a very important song on our new album and its concept. It is the point where the hero is being unchained and starts his way out of the cave, and for the first time he has to leave anything he thought to be the truth. I remember telling Steve Hackett about this song and the concept and he was definitely put all these emotions into the guitar solo he performed here, which is in my opinion, one of the best guitar solos ever on an Orphaned Land song. We are just too lucky and honored to have a rock legend playing with us in this one!”

Steve Hackett comments: “I was thrilled to have Kobi Farhi sing on one of my album tracks. His voice sounds beautiful and mystical on the track. It was equally a pleasure to do a guitar solo for this exciting track on Orphaned Land’s album, which has a great vibe!”
