Orphaned Land is an Israeli progressive metal band, formed in 1991 under the name Resurrection (changing their name in 1992 to the current name), that combines Jewish and Arabian influences. The band has gone through several lineup changes over the years, but has retained three of the founding members, Kobi Farhi (vocals), Uri Zelcha (bass), and Yossi Sassi (guitars/strings). They are joined by Matan Shmuely (drums) as well as Chen Balbus (guitar/keyboard), who replaced founding member, Matti Svatizky in 2012.
