Additional info
"Kna'an is a project that was born in the head of the Memmingen's Landestheater director - Walter Wayers. Wayers wrote a complete new play with his modern perspective about the familiar biblical story of Abraham in the land of Kna'an and was looking for someone to fit in writing the soundtrack and songs for this purpose. That's how a co-production between Kobi Farhi (Orphaned Land) and Erez Yohanan (Amaseffer) was born.

"Kobi & Erez, with the help of Orphaned Land's members, composed this special soundtrack consisting ballads and metal songs about all the characters and inner conflicts of the heroes in this complex episode, a story that still reflects till this day the three Abrahamic religions."

This is a tricky one..It's not an typical Orphaned Land nor Amaseffer album and It definitely Isn't what you'd expect judging by these guys earlier efforts!
It's a wierd one..a strange collaboration indeed..I like it though, there's something really magical and fascinating about it.
On the other hand..it's a bit short...
Would be interesting if they went overboard and collaborated with someone like..say..Vanden Plas and made one epic masterpeace cuz this felt like a taste of something big yet to come.

Ugh, I was so looking forward to hear this album and...it didn't go well. I was expecting something way more bombastic, epic, based on what I've heard from these guys in the past. Instead of that, my ears met some doomish, atmospheric oriental metal which seemed forced, rushed or just simply not thought over well. That spark is missing from both sides. While both of them did amazing jobs separately, this project just didn't work for me.

I'm surprised to see such harsh critics (not here, necessarily), because I think it's a beautiful album. I'm not that familiar with Amaseffer, but as an Orphaned Land fan I'm pleased. It has a lot of the things I like them for and the amount of emotion and empathy it brings makes me love it, for me it had a big impact emotionally.
