    We are proud to announce the remaining 2 bands for ProgPower Scandinavia:

    - Orphaned Land
    - Firewind

    With Israeli metal/folk/worldmusic band Orphaned Land we believe we have found the perfect headliner for the Saturday show - the band has been a long time favorite of ours, and we have seen them perform at various concerts around the world, always to great applause from the audience, so there were no doubts in our minds that they would fit perfectly on our bill and would be able to claim their place as the headliner of the 2nd day of the festival. Firewind from Greece is one of the best-known exponents for melodic heavy metal infused with some old school neo-classical guitar shredding and true powerhouse vocals. We're extremely happy to have these bands on-board!

    The final line-up is:

    Friday November 9th:
    00.15-01.45 - MERCENARY
    22.25-23.55 - THRESHOLD
    21.05-22.05 - CIRCUS MAXIMUS
    20.00-20.45 - SPHERIC UNIVERSE EXPERIENCE

    Saturday November 10th:
    00.25-01.55 - ORPHANED LAND
    22.50-00.05 - FIREWIND
    21.30-22.30 - ELDRITCH
    20.10-21.10 - DARKANE
    19.05-19.50 - MACHINE MEN
    18.00-18.45 - ANDROMEDA

    See you all there (well, hopefully :)).

    Awesome job with the lineup Claus! Especially Orphaned Land is an excellent addition and makes me want to go to the festival even more - cool schedule too, the kind of late start at 8pm on Friday should help us foreigners to not miss anything even if flying in the same day :)

    Thanks guys for the comments!

    This line-up is what we wanted for the first year, a balance between bands we love and bands we ... love :) *hehe*

    We really hope you will be supportive as well when the time comes for the ticket sale to start (probably June 1st - perhaps already next week).

    Cheers,
    Claus and Lars

    The venue holds 700 people, and we expect 100 people from press/VIP's, crew etc., so remember to be fast, when the tickets go on sale...this will happen very soon. Please check in on the news regularly.

    This sounds amazing. Are there not any special priveleges you get like with ProgPowerUK?

    Like the first 50 people last year got VIP passes or gold passes or something similar.

    I look forward to coming. I'm coming purely for Firewind! I like the other bands but wouldn't usually bother travelling to Denmark to see them...as I am scared of flying...

    Yes...but hopefully all will be good!!!

    Was at The Rock for the Kamelot show last Thursday and i was right up front. I took this pic that might give you an idea how it is. There where no barriers and hopefully it will not be at PPscan either since they will "steal" a lot of space.

    Hey Lars,
    it was great seeing you again, although I was damn busy working most of the night. How did you like the show? Too bad about the heat, hopefully it won't be as bad come November - we're gonna have new aircondition in there soon.
    Cheers,
    Claus

    Hey Claus, really great to see you again as well. I think the show was great, but i've seen some complain about the sound? I can't really tell because i was almost on top of the monitors:lol:
    Anyway, i liked the venue and the atmosphere, but as you said, it was HOT in there. One thing is to spend some time watching a band or two, but for the PPScand it will definatly be in place with some cooling. The Rock was for sure a great place to visit for my first ever visit to Copenhagen and if i'm not there in November, i'm most likely dead:heh:

    Regarding the complaints about the sound, I think most people say that it was too loud and there was too much bass in the mix. That's the fault of Kamelot's sound guy who decided to do it that way. I don't know why he wanted it to be that loud, but apparently he did.

    See you in November :)
