About this album

Mabool: The Story of the Three Sons of Seven is the third full-length studio album by the Israeli metal band Orphaned Land. It was released on February 23, 2004 through Century Media Records. There are two different versions of the album; in a CD version and an LP with different cover art for each. The album is also available as a limited edition version with a bonus live acoustic CD entitled; The Calm Before the Flood. It was also released on vinyl by Profound Lore Records as a 2LP album in a clear wax case limited to only 500 copies. The album also features two videos that were made for “Ocean Land” and “Norra el Norra” their first videos and can be viewed here.

The album was made in a highly arranged fashion and took six years to be arranged, composed and produced and is therefore the main reason for the long wait between albums.

Synopsis:
The album tells the story of three sons (Angels) of the seventh (in the mythology the number seven refers to God). The seventh was divided into three, representing the divide of the Abrahamic religion into three main streams: Judaism, Islam and Christianity.

Each angel was given a power and representation. The first angel is Judaism, he is represented by a Star of David and his power is magic. The second angel is Islam, he is represented by a half of moon and his power was his strength. The third angel is Christianity, he is represented by the cross and his power is his wisdom.
