Orphaned Land – Mabool


Forget everything you know about genres. I’m used of talking about the sound of a band at the beginning of a review. But this album can’t be described just by mere genre definitions. They are said to play a mixture of Progressive Death Metal with arabic folk. But, what it’s exactly Progressive Death? It sounds like Death? Opeth? This band sounds , at core, like Progressive Metal, with unusual song structures, technical use of instruments, and no choruses at all.
