    Hi everyone,
    Im from England and saw Orphaned Land for the first time at ProgpowerUK in march this year, I had never heard of them until then and WOW what a show! these guys, Threshold and Pagan's Mind stole the show for me! Their music was so powerful, enlightneing, simple yet complex!
    I am now offically hooked after buying Mabool from the desk after they had played and bumped into Matti and Uri and Natalie (from Orphaned-Disciples) and told them what I thought.
    Anyway, I was talking to Yossi the other day via email (I had sent him and Kobi and email begging them to come back) and he said they would love to come back, he said I should make some noise so I am starting here. So anyone on this froum from the UK who want to see Orphaned Land back in the UK as soon as possible reply to this thread and lets get the ball rolling and help me make some noise! Unleash our rageing storms!

    Warren

    They should visit me, first. I know they want it. :p

    After Wacken I think I'm doing the same as you, here in Denmark.

    Absolutely, both shows were fantastic.

    I have been a fan for years, but several of the people that came along with me have been converted by the PPUK shows.

    I am annoyed that the Wacken performance clashes with Morbid Angel though, that should not have been scheduled!

    Ken, you are going back to The States this week? Never had chance to catch up for that beer!

    I don't like Morbid Angel, so I don't mind that clash. But I could think some of the OL bandmembers do, since I remember some linking them? :p

    Hi Warren, I'm completely with you, I saw Orphaned Land for the first time at ProgPowerUK and was equally impressed. I listen to Mabool everyday and am buying it for all my friend's birthdays! We must get them back to the UK soon, so lets spread the word. The other day I went to a rock night at my local pub and the DJ actually played Ocean Land, I couldn't believe it, their music is already spreading which is great news!:headbang:

    Ruth that wasn't down the Rat and Parrot in Bexleyheath was it? beacuase they have a rock night every thursday, i am always there n some of the guys at rock matrix went down to PPUK as sponsors and sell some stuff in the market. Afterwards me and my mate were raving so one of the guys said "lets get some orphaned land on" so they played ocean land

    Guys, i wish you good luck with bringing OL back to UK.
    I know how is it to want a band you really like to come to preform in your country.

    Just bug any promotor you can find and let your friends hear the albums. This is the best advertising for the band!

    By the way- it was great fun meeting up with so many fellow fans in England. Sometimes it seems like the UK scene and the one in Europe are completely different galaxies, this time it proved not to be true.

    Well Morticia the gap isn't really that wide, its just rock, metal, prog doesn't rule the world like it use to. I was born in 85 and seen it rise to some form of mainstream but you don't get bands like Edguy getting number 5 spots and stuff its still very much boring boring indie and corprate pop/rock rubbish that block up the charts, so stuff like Orphaned Land, Pagan's Mind, even our own Dragonforce: intersteign stuff don't get a look in.
    But then we are in a minority and should be proud of that, It's like I said to Ruth, Iv set the ball rolling down our local rock night, OL have hooked me and my mates (im becoming slighly obsesseive with this band, in a musical sense) so hopefully it will snowball.
    I have tried to bug, but most of the places I can thing of over here like the mean fiddler/Astoria, Camden Underworld and electric ballroom don't have any contacts so I may have to go up their personally and bug

    Preaching to the converted here :lol:

    Well, it won't be live but Orphaned Land will be playing at my wedding tomorrow, before, during and after the meal :headbang: Well maybe not so much :headbang: as we've had to choose the quieter tracks - I don't think the folks would fully appreciate it. :)
