“The main inspiration for the story behind the song lies with the famous World War 1 story called "The Christmas Truce". We were simply blown away from that story. From the way that those holy day songs were the trigger to bring the enemies to co-exist and celebrate together as brothers for one night in No Man’s Land. The next day they just got back to bomb and kill each other. It is an outstanding story that shows us the eternal hope of mankind, the power of music and the tragedy that despite all of that - evil still prevails.” - Kobi Farhi (Orphaned Land) on the story behind 'Let The Truce Be Known'
In anticipation of their upcoming release, Israeli Oriental Metallers Orphaned Land have premiered a new lyrical video for the song 'Let The Truce Be Known', taken from the band's new 6th studio album, 'All Is One', which will surface on June 24th via Century Media Records.
'Let The Truce Be Known' can be heard on the Century Media YouTube channel here
'All Is One' was mixed by Jens Bogren (Kreator, Amon Amarth, James LaBrie, Devin Townsend Project, Opeth) and was recorded in three different countries: Israel, Turkey and Sweden. Ironically, these countries are Jewish, Muslim and Christian respectively, which strengthens the Orphaned Land message of unity through music. Over 40 musicians were used to flesh out the sound of All Is One, including 25 choir singers and eight classical violin, viola and cello players from Turkey.
Further to that the band have announced tour dates across Europe from September to November and will visit France, Belgium, Germany, Denmark, Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary, Austria, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Greece, Turkey, Serbia, Croatia, Slovenia, Italy, Switzerland, Netherlands and will finish in the UK then Ireland, so see if they are coming to a venue near you!

Mastermind Alexi Laiho states that "Transference is a straight up CHILDREN OF BODOM to the core type song and therefore was a good pick for a video and obviously is one of our favorite tracks.
It always had an evil vibe to it which I wish I knew how to explain because it still gives me chills… Enjoy!”
