In celebration of their 25th anniversary, the pioneers of oriental metal, ORPHANED LAND, are re-releasing the two landmark albums “Sahara” and “El Norra Alila” as a Special Edition Digipak version and also on all digital platforms!

Both albums were remastered and the CD versions come with revised artwork and layout and also include an introduction into oriental metal written by Kobi Farhi.

Frontman Kobi Farhi comments: “This is another exciting moment in our 25th anniversary year! Sahara & El Norra Alila are the milestones of the whole oriental metal genre, originally released in 1994 & 1996, when I and my bandmates were still teenagers. I’m so excited to have these albums re-issued at Century Media Records! They’ve been out of stock for so many years, never been released digitally and now we have all our albums at the same house!”
