This is us packing our bags for the EPIC trip to the USA (west coast) to go forth and show the lovely people at Faerieworlds in Oregon what real European PaganFolk sounds like! BUT… what to take to the land of the free?
It was a great weekend at MPS Bückeburg! Great weather, great atmosphere and great Audience! We always LOVE to play at the Mittelalterlich Phantasie Spectaculum… Thanks Gisi ( and his crew ;) ) for another great weekend!
Yes folks.. Today marks the end of a legend... Damien the OMNIA Roadie is leaving the gang ... He will be working his last gig with OMNIA today and tomorrow at the MPS Bückeburg and then he'll hang up his black OMNIA Crew jacket for the last time so that he can go back to school to study and become even more intelligent and wise than he already is :-)
Yeah! we're Recording again! (but still not for OMNIA) Yesterday we had another fun recording session in the Stennystudio... we like having these little artistic sessions with our sweet friend Fieke as technician! very cosy... The recordings we made two months ago were for the brand new single of our German friends from Saltatio Mortis called "Wachtum über alles" ... we made an english language cover version as a gift for them called "Profit über alles" (and, as the title suggests we did this for free ;-) AND I hear that the single is OUT NOW! and for sale online etc. so if you're interested , check it out HERE!
Today we picked wild blue berries in the forest to feed to the birdies (and ourselves)... hence the red fingers covered in juice!... so for dinner today we made blueberry pancakes with these teenyweeny tart and fresh tasting dutch forest berries! JUMMM!! Iwas really such a beautifull day today! It feels good to be alive!
We didn't feel like blogging yesterday ... sorry... we were very sad 'cause our little birdy friend aka: "Kleinstein" passed away back into the circle of life... He was always the poorly one of the lot, and after our orphaned finches got ill last week he was in very bad shape... Sadly I have to report that despite all that we (Stenny and Ans & Hans) have tried , he didn't make it...
Well , we made it thru the US consulate! Now we have to wait for a couple of days for our passports to be returned decorated with a " temporary legal Alien" visum!! Yo! Omnia ... Alien baby! USA here we come!
We brought our musickal "Pagan Guns" to Belgium this weekend and it ROCKED! After a brilliant couple of crowded gigs at "Folk BeLeuvenissen" in the wonderfully hospitable city of Leuven, we went on to show he crowd at the Na Fir Bolg festival what PaganFolk is all about... wow! what a briliant weekend!
Today we'll be taking a lot of new merchandise to the concerts in Belgium... they are fresh in from the printers!!...
like this organic-cotton black teeshirt with the new-style Celtic -Gold OMNIA logo which I designed recently.... (aswell as new "tight and sexy" Girly shirts, "sleeveless active" shirts, the "wolf-love" logo is back! (in White and Gold)... we even have an OMNIA RAINCOAT now!!!... check it out at Chloé's merch-stand this weekend! (and next week on the webshop).
The new Saltatio Mortis Single... (Is now also a little OMNIA single!!) Today we are finishing-up the production of our "re-mix" of the new Saltatio Mortis single which will be released on the 12th of July 2013.
Sa-Mo is a very anarchist german Mittelalter/Metal band of freaks who are fast becoming very dear friends of ours. (we met at the awesome travelling MPS festivals of Gisi and it was like we'd known each other for a long time already... you know the feeling?)
What a weekend... what stages! What a crowd! First we rocked belgium BIGTIME!! and then Last weekend the trees formed our cathedral and together with the wonderfull MPS people we celebrated the Pagan- mass! Love in the Forest and peace among the trees!!! XXX Omnia
