1. Birth Of The Three
The Unification

The Three Sons Of Seven - the heroes of ORPHANED LAND's flood story - are the re-incarnated souls of the Seventh Angel Of Seven (the Creator of all). They were born as the three sons of the three monotheistic religions. The time they were born thunders struck the Earth and a big celebration was held in their home lands.

2. Ocean Land
The Revelation

The Three heroes find each other: Once they are united they see a vision and a revelation about a raging storm and flood that will destruct the sinful Orphaned Land, they understand the purpose of their birth and their mission among their people.

3. The Kiss Of Babylon
The Sins

The Three travel the land and learn about the crimes of mankind against their own brothers and sisters, the crimes of man against their Creator. They see the Holy Land turned into a twisted land of hate and fear.

4. A'salk

The ones that betrayed their lands must be exiled. This is a song of mourning from orphans who were exiled from their lands because of their own sins and the deeds they did with their own hands.

5. Halo Dies
The Wrath Of God

The Creator speaks to the Three and tells them about his anger and grief. He lets them see the confusion and the great work of Satan which fools us and makes us fight against each other with never ending bloodshed - all in a so called war under the "Name of God". Each religion declares the same God as King and Creator of the world, they talk about compassion, mercy, charity, but on the same breath they don't hesitate to kill each other while carrying the name of God God is angry, sad and disappointed about his children.

6. A Call To Awake
The Quest

After seeing the sins and after hearing the Creator's word they understand that they have the power to wake up their people from their blindness and slumber. They ask their brothers to wake up, because otherwise a flood will wash them away. Unfortunately their people chose to ignore their warnings and start hunting the Three in order to kill them. The Three escape from their own people who are blinded by fear.

7. Building The Ark

Once the Three failed to wake up their people they understand that they have no way to prevent the flood. Still, with a lot of hope they start to build the Ark, as they were told to do so.

8. Nora El Nora
Entering The Ark

The Three are the only people in the world who each have a different religion, but are united as one with harmony. They pray for their lives and for the sake of all who are about to be killed in the storm. After they prayed side by side they board the Ark together with their families and a pair from all living beings on Earth.

9. The Calm Before The Flood

The last day of mankind before the flood. All except the Three don't believe that a flood will come. While all are asleep the wind starts howling and all light fades - the first raindrop falls

10. Mabool
The Flood

Rain usually feeds the land by an act of love in nature, but this time the rain of the storm comes to rape the corrupted land and to wipe mankind off the face of the Earth. Mankind who has no respect for the land, neither for human life nor their Creator - everybody will be banished from the Earth and there will be nothing left except one big ocean land.

11. The Storm Still Rages Inside

After 40 days of a heavy storm and rain that keeps falling the Ark is the only thing still existing on Earth. The three orphans - so sad from their failure of saving mankind, since they know that all were killed by the storm - are falling on their knees and are begging the Lord to hear their yearning and to have mercy upon them. Basically they beg for a piece of dry land in this endless ocean.

12. Rainbow
The Resurrection

The Ark finds a piece of land, the flood had stopped and a rainbow appears as a sign of the light's return to the Orphaned Land.

Nice... But isn't the story of the prophet Noah (In Islam he's call Nooh)?
