    Well Claus considering that we were colonized by ENGLand, I would think it would make sense that we speak ENGLish. Better than speaking Denmarkian, :loco::loco::loco::loco:.

    I hate being so politically correct (actually I don't but ... :)):

    Yes, we speak Danish in Denmark - no, not the pastry, which in Denmark we called wienerbrød after Vienna in Austria of all places.

    In England they speak English.
    In Great Britain they speak English, Scottish and Welsh.
    In United Kingdom they speak English, Scottish, Welsh and Irish (well, some of the ones from Northern Ireland does).

    Geography lesson #3 :)))))))))))))

    Going by that rule, the Swedes and Norwegian people should speak Danish as well ... alas, they don't :)

    Some in Scotland speak Gaelic, and in Ireland Gaeilge. On the Isle of Man some speak Gailck.

    Denmark you also have faorese, and greenlandic.

    Not really.

    English was the spoken language when they settled what is now USA.

    Old Norse was the spoken language when the 'danes' were basically controlling Finland/Norway. And swedish, danish, and norwegian are all descendant langauges of old norse.

    In USA we too have our language differences with England. However, the differences are minor enough that I think its rare that you'll hear a term like 'american english.'

    When did we ever control Finland?

    Yes and no ... all the old norse language are derived from the Germanic language, but Swedish and Danish are closer to each other in "language tribe" than Norway, Faroe Islands and Iceland (whose original language is closer to what we understand as old norse).

    Pagan's Mind kicked our asses last October, so I'm sure they'll rock ProgPower Europe as well. :kickass: They're one of the finest bands within this genre without a doubt!

    Don't let any Brits see that. To them, we butcher the Queen's English every day! :lol:

    PM is a great choice for PPEurope. :headbang:
    I'd love to go back to it someday, but finances will dictate against it. Besides, I'd miss the 013 venue too much. :)

    I suppose word travels fast about how dominant of a band they are. They deserve a headliner slot. If I were in a band, you couldn't pay me a small mint to play right after PM. I have seen a handful of bands as good as they are, but none better. They were as perfect as I liove band can get. That is great for them !!
