Writing about Orphaned Land and not mentioning the Palestine-sized elephant in the room is near-impossible. The Arab-Israeli conflict and the murky, tumultuous politics that have followed Zionism into the twenty-first century has coloured everything that the Israeli progressive metallers have written over the last twenty years. The devastating, seemingly irreparable, culture splits that have been right in front of them their entire lives pervades their music entirely, from the lyrics and themes through to their eccentric mixture of musical styles.

Freedom To The Slave Makers has taken quite a while to surface. After leaving Roadrunner Records in 2007 with mixed feelings from both the band and label, Betzefer regrouped in 2008 with with producer Warren Riker (who’s previously been behind the desk for both Korn and Down) and headed into the studio with the intention of releasing their next record before the year was out. Fast forward to 2011. Only surfacing for a mere handful of shows during the intervening period, Betfezer seemed to have very little to show for such prolonged delays.
