    Any other American fans of this band? This definitely seems to be a Euro-metal/Israeli type of thing. Kinda makes me wish I spoke Hebrew...and played the Bouzouq.

    Hello Jomkiatz,

    I can tell you there are many american fans of Orphaned Land. if the fanclub statistics are anything to go by, they have a nice following in the US- we got a lot of hits from overthere.
    Also from the people I met at the show in Atlanta last year, it was evident they are already known in the US progscene.

    There is a big following of OL In east Europe too in Russia and Poland,
    Oriental music (especially turkish) is very in right now in those regions...not just in metal.

    why should he be?
    Adir (who sang Halo dies with Kobi in the last show) is also Canaanite(Kna'anite to be exact) and he rules. :kickass:

    Huh. I mean, I know they're known over here, I just figured it was a more underground thing.

    God, I wish they'd play a show here. I'd be willing to drive 12+ hours for that.

    The typical american metal head, ie. "metallica head" has never heard of OL. But every one i've introduced has LOVED them. from people into brutal death to people into power metal.

    Here they are pretty unknown to people who do not know me :)D), but there is a small fanbase, which I think could certainly base a headlning show. (I don't want to make you guys feel bad about me being the only one showing up :( )

    Yeah, I know, I've seen some of his posts. But I don't think he was at the show they played, so you wouldn't know if he would show up to that one, since I remember him being from the other side of the country. (Small country, sure, but we have horrible train times)

    orphaned land has two die hard fans here in houston, myself and a friend of mine - i'm sure there are more because the city has a good underground metal scene. I know a friend in mississippi who saw OL at the progpower festival last year and is a big fan now as well.
