I enjoy listening to your music in the forested foothillls of Mt. St. Helens. I think the animals and the trees enjoy it too! Blessing and deep appreciation to you from Amboy, WA USA!

Andy Rosell

I thank you for this wonderful music and I thank you for these beautiful feelings!
I wish you luck and peace!

Thanks for granting my membership, despite the "We must verify that you are human" step in the process. I promise you, I am not a robot, but sorry...I don't speak human.

Steve, Jenny...OMNIA et al, you've reawakened a soul I thought long dead. My granny tried to teach me her Wiccan ways in my childhood but my parents prohibited it. Now, at 60, I've finally found a doorway back in time to those teachings, through your music. When queried "religious preference" I now list myself "Proud Pagan" and I thank you for the light on the path.

Eric Lee...just another old man who now feels much younger. Thank you for that, too.

Hi Omnia, so happy today as my copy of Prayer arrived and my gorgeous new Omnia t-shirt, which I adore. Love you guys so much, so inspiring. I recently finished writing a play for my theatre company called The Witches' Market inspired by listening to Wytches' Brew, can't wait for the company to start rehearsing it, you guys always inspire me and fill me with so much hope and laughter. Thank you for all that you do, keep it up ^_^ all the love and blessings, Mikayla xx

Hi Omnia.

I found you by accident and really love your music! Especially the Earth Warrior song. It is amazing. Really sad to see you wear fun and leather in the video :( Seems a bit contradictory. Hope you can look into that <3 Lots of Pagan Love

"Does OMNIA wear FUR which has been ripped off tortured animals?" 

 

We get this question a lot, 

 

OMNIA answers: We wear sheepskins from some very rare ancient races of sheep which are slowly being re-introduced into nature areas of Europe (Jenny's is a Norwegian "Spælsau", Daphyd, Rob, Saat and Steve all wear the skins of the Dutch "Drents heideschaap" the oldest breed of domesticated European sheep (+/- 4000 years) which have been saved from extinction by 100% bio-organic farmers. All our sheep skins are of certified origin, and we know the people who bred them personally, our donations help them to continue breeding and protecting these beautiful and special sheep. And when the sheep get old and die, their skins help keep us warm in the snow... The leather of our loin-cloths is made from bio-organic-farmed goatskin, sheep skin and (wild) Boar skin..... The various feathers we wear have all be given to us by fans or gathered in the wild by ourselves... the animal / bird skulls and various bones on my indian head-dress have all been gathered from road-kill corpses and cleaned by Steve personally..

Love you guys, love your music but.........when, o when (if at all) would you tour to Perth? (Western Australia, not Scotland or Tasmania!)

Hi Omnia!
I found you on youtube by accident just today and immediately fell in love with the drums and rhythm and most importantly, the message! I have a question, though - seeing how you are all for being the Earth warriors - are you vegan too? Also, are you planning on having a concert in the Netherlands?
Thank you for your work and your vibes.

Dear Omnia,
It's been nearly 5 years since the first sounds of Wytches' Brew let me look up.
I had never really liked any music I knew up to then, even though I learned playing different Instruments for as long as can remember. 5 seconds (or less) listening and I knew I had found something I had been missing in my life: REAL Music. And I began discovering that there was more, more music and more people who shared my beliefs, people, whose existence I had doubted before. I suddenly wasn't alone anymore, my whole life changed, I found true friends and true love.
Some of the other entries here are like reading my own story written by other people, and I enjoy reading them from time to time, so I never forget that I'm not alone. But they also made me hesitate to write the story on my own, for I don't want to bore you.
But it is time to take action myself.
It breaks my heart to read that you, who gave me hope again and again and again over the last years, struggle with the same dark thoughts and occasional hopelessness as we do. It bothers me to hear, that you often feel exhausted by playing in front of audience who actually should give you a positive feeling. I don't know at which festivals you felt your music "got lost in the noise", but I can assure you, that at no concert I attended your voice was meaningless. (I'm not the type of "concert collector" though.)
And you are right, all we can do sometimes is to look at the beauty in nature and everywhere around us to not despair an help it grow. That's why I started playing the violin again and started dancing. For my first solo performance last year I chose XTATICA, the reactions from the audience where overwhelming. And I plan to go on spreading the omnian spirit. (If you're interested I'd feel honoured to send you the video.)
Well, all I want to say by writing this novel is:
Please don't give up. I know you wouldn't ever give up on music, but also don't give up on us mutant monkeys, because some of us care for your music, your words, you.
So I wish you to enjoy your sabbatical, regain your power. Not only trees need to be hugged, so feel hugged and loved.
I wish you all the best.

Stenny,

A little Midwinter ditty to go with your idyllic forest scene: to the tune of "Y Gelynnen."

"I hear the hap-py red-breast sing 'A sin-gle life i-is fol-ly;
My lit-tle wife and I we nest on the shel-tered bough of the hol-ly.
Fal-dee roo-dee lam-tam. Too-lee rid-dle-ee. Troo-lah lam-tam too-lam tan-nee.
My lit-tle wife and I we nest on the shel-tered bough of the hol- ly'"

With best wishes for the New Year and your sabbatical from Revels, Houston

Stenny et Omnia,

This is partly in response to Heiko's comment, though I have no wish to start a flame war, even on midwinter night.

A couple of years ago, I was fortunate enough to attend an Omnia concert at Faeriecon in Baltimore, MD. The show ran well over 3 hours including at least 3 encores. The entire audience of several hundred was SRO and included several generations--from boomers to millennials. The applause, including foot stomping, was deafening and chunks of ceiling began to rain down as the crowd screamed for yet more encores. Both the band and the audience, many of whom had been standing for over 5 hours, we're pretty near exhausted. The band had performed continually without any breaks. But that was then.

Even the mighty Stones are reported to suck on OX bottles during breaks in their gigs. This particular concert series which included Bochum was billed as a PRAYER concert. The entire PRAYER album does not run over an hour. So a 2-hour concert must have included much additional material. Personally, I'd rather have a live Omnia doing 2-hour shows than buy the 4-CD memorial album.

As for FREEDOM SONG, I really love that song. It creates in me a sense of euphoria and, yes, OMNIA-potence. Is that unrealistic? Of course! Is that hypocritical? Of course! But when Steve intones "I need more power," I instinctively turn up the volume on my audio system. While the form is rap, most rap is prose to a beat. What Omnia does that is special is to add a lyrical quality which does indeed give the rendition "more power."

Happy Yule,

Jack

Heiko

Hi Omnia,

last week, I attended the gig in Bochum, and the performance was awesome as always.

Hope you appreciate some crit, too:

It was less than two hours including encores. I don't think that's appropriate for a band with a huge repertoire and range like Omnia. I'm used to base gigs of minimum two hours.

The Freedom Song to me sounds like any song that could be played everyday on the radio. It just reminds me of the commercial, exchangeable music you guys despise.

Regards,
Heiko

Your Concert in Hamburg was awesome. Actually I'm pregnant and I have an awesome idea. Baby-Bodies from Omnia. 100% Organic, that the little People can be Earth Warrior just like Mommy and Daddy. Please can you realize this Idea? I thougt about it while your Speech before you played Earth Warrior. Actual I can't steal things, so I want to give my money to people where I know that there is the right place ^^

Jack

Steve,

Actually, Steve, I think you'd make a great oligarch. Watch out, Soros; watch out, Trump!

(The magic in your music is a real challenge to their fiat gold.)

Sic 'em,

Jack

Yesterday I was at the concert in Bochum. It was amazing!!!! Thanks a lot for this wonderful evening. It was the first time for me to vistit a live Omnia concert, a wish came true for christmas. This live music was like diving in a huge wave of sound, feelings, earth with little roots of an ancient time. I loved it! All the best for you, Omnia, hope to see you again

I was recently introduced to one of your songs, "I don't speak human". Since that day, I've combed YouTube, watching and listening to everything I can find from your band. I've felt your message in my soul for centuries... Thank you, from Lil ole Ashtabula, Ohio, USA. Stay LOUD Brothers and Sisters!

Hi guys, I have been listening to your music for couple of years now and I can honestly say you helped to save my life. I was a shamanic- witchy weirdo since I was born and since I grew up amongst "normal" people, those things were always heavily opressed in me. I often felt unloved and it came to the point I got something that doctors these days call an "incurable disease". At that time, I went through a lot of pain, both physical and emotional and suicide thoughts were a part of me almost every minute of every day. There are no words to describe what I felt when I first heard song "free bird fly". I bursted into tears after first couple of lines, but there was something more than that. Something healing. I finally realized that I had a place in this world and a mission to complete here. Suddenly I felt stronger than ever, it was really magical. I screwed all "normal" people and finally started doing what I always wanted to do. Things have slowly changed since, I got back my health and found other weirdos to share my passion with and now I am truly happy and full of life. I will be eternally grateful to you for writing that song. And also for writing every other one, because there is a special kind of energy and message in every single one of them. Two days ago I saw you live in Prague for the first time and it was absolutely amazing, full of peace and love. I felt like a part of some beautiful ritual. I wish you all the best, keep doing what you´re doing and thank you one more time for doing it!
