    will Borknagar ever come to germany again?
    I would like to see them in Düsseldorf or Köln or in a city next to this both.

    Now, the new album is for sale...is that a gleam of hope that tells me they will?

    hes right. and besides dark tranquillity (which kicked ass ) all the other artists that come here are washed out artists who USED to be good and now suck,obviously there are a few exceptions.

    and theres not a single metal band in this country that is half as good as the real metal bands. Gay rock and roll has a bigger audience and their singers are nasal,annoying twats. and the only groups that are really good are made by music teachers on their mid 40's-50's, like a couple of groups named Swing en 4 (jazzesque) and Pelacats (instrumental prog) which sadly disbanded

    I should note that by posting in this thread, even though I fully understand why Borknagar touring is just an unreasonable idea right now, I am admitting that I would really like to see them play live.

    I concur... it would be a fucking highlight of my life to see them live, not to mention an honor. And I've seen Iron Maiden and Children of Bodom, but to see Borknagar I think would be far more incredible.

    Well, I have to partly disagree with you, I think that most of the bands that have come here are really good. I mean FUCK, we got to see THERION live!!!

    IMO that's quite an achievement for a country like ours hehe.

    But yeah, the international scene is more dead than ever here. I mean, hehe 130 people for Mystic Circle? LOL :lol: * :cry: *

    Actually, concerning CRn bands, we still have " Time's Forgotten ", which pwns any other band's ass (http://profile.myspace.com/index.cf...MyToken=9f44135a-8b06-4e9a-a2f3-4e52e7de6b34).

    Everyone, please check that band out, they're really good :headbang: .

    If I want Borknagar to tour and come to South America? :guh:
    OF COURSE I WANT! :worship:
    Borknagar is one of my favorite bands, and also one of the bands that probably will never tour outside Europe... =/

    Didn't any of you see Borknagar on their U.S. tour with Emperor several years back?
    Sheesh, some people have short memories! :lol:

    I remember that tour well...

    First, we had Divine Empire, who had two death metal vocalists--yet they sounded EXACTLY the same.

    Next up, I think, was Witchery. My prime memory from their set is of Jensen continually throwing the crowd 'W's.

    I could be wrong, but I believe Peccatum preceded Borknagar. How a band in which Ihsahn plays can be SO awful is beyond my understanding.

    Borknagar played very well. I remember Simen fucking up a vocal line at the beginning of a song, so they had to start over. He even said something like "fucking hell! Sorry!" It was cool to see him playing a Rickenbacker. It was also cool to see Nick Barker behind the kit. I don't think they had a live keyboardist at that point, but I could well be wrong.


    Emperor you all know...

    I was not yet a Borknaguy at that time... I think I was maybe 14 when that tour came through! Tis a shame.

    It was at the Palladium downstairs... naturally, Ihsahn said "What's up, Wor-chester?" I think Simen got the pronunciation right. Interestingly, Divine Empire, who are American, addressed the audience as "Wor-chester" as well. :lol:

    "Woostah"
    The letter R simply does not exist in the state of Massachusetts, if it is at the end of a syllable.

    I've seen them play twice, both times the crows was shouting random polish phrases at them like "Food", "Hello" etc.....mainly food though.

    I really do feel that it's time the 'Nagar came down Australia way. The time is ripe!
