If only the sands of time were as endless as the dunes of Middle-Eastern plains…for there would be no bounds for new discoveries.
As we make our pilgrimages through the Metal lands we often come across earthy anomalies that stick out of the metallic landscape like those rare blades of grass that tear through slabs of concrete. And eclectic ‘fusion’ projects belong to that particular sort foliage that often finds itself floating above the heavy material that dominates this genre. Those peculiar, fresh leaves often become the necessary seasonal changes throughout the often-weathered offerings that are brought along by new winds. And “Roots And Roads” by the Yossi Sassi Band (from Yossi Sassi of Orphaned Land fame) is one such wayward growth that has sprung up amidst the cyclones of Heavy Metal to bring along rays of melody and grains of passion.
