Orphanage was a band that exploded on the Dutch scene by 1994 and became a big household name in the years 1995 to 2004. They played all big stages in Europe and were praised for their unique, innovative style of Death Metal (with melody and gothic influences being added). Orphanage made their songs heavy, with emphasis on bombasm and atmosphere. The mix of Gothic and Doom Metal would not totally miss the point with Orphanage, but then you got the brutal/heavy elements as well. The feel of the music has it’s connection to the atmosphere of gloomy castles, and perhaps even some fantasy-elements.
Everything has been painstakingly re-mastered by Toneshed and artwork rebuild from almost scratch with full back up of the band themselves.
