"Mabool (The Flood)" is the tenth track from the album Mabool by the death/oriental/folk metal band Orphaned Land, who hail from Israel. It is essentially Part 1 in a three-part epic that spans this song, the next one titled "The Storm Still Rages Inside", and the last song of the album, "Rainbow (The Resurrection)".
The album is a concept album which tells the tale of the "Three Sons of Seven". The "Seventh" is implied to be God, while the "Sons" are the three major Middle Eastern Religions, Judaism, Christianity and Islam. God denies their attempt to unite for fear of their combined strength, and so casts them down to Earth to forever fight and war with one another until humanity becomes wise enough to properly understand their similarities. The three tracks mentioned here depict God sending forth a Great Flood onto the Earth. The Three Sons attempt to warn the people of this, but fail, and so most of humanity is wiped out and the Earth is essentially reborn.
I do not take credit for the songs, the album, the band, or the artwork.
