Greetz everyone.

I'm just wondering what's the band's opinion about bootleg recordings of their concerts.
I enjoy listening to concert renditions of songs a lot, and the only way I can get all that (never officially released) audio and video material is from Internet.

You know, there are thousands of Metallica or Dream Theater bootlegs online; but OL's bootlegs are still a few.

Does the band mind if we, the fans, share some Orphaned Land's live recordings that we have?

It's a rather delicate ethical matter, especially for such a non-commercial band as OL. :worship:

If the band does not mind, we can share these [crude noisy .mp3s or .mpgs only interesting to devoted fans:)] fan recordings here.

I got OL's live in Paris (2006?) mp3, Wacken .mp4 and tried to get some live recordings from
* ROXEN, TEL AVIV, ISRAEL - 14 September 1993 (CDR)
* SALA ARENA, MADRID - 31 May 2005 (CDR)
(failed to exchange anything with that dude).
Yeah i know, i'm just teasing you a bit for old times sake...:) It would be great though to watch some OL live power. I'll just leave the months decide...
Hm, I've just collected 46 band's videos (incl. 4 interviews, concerts and live song fragments etc.) (1.46 Gb)

What am I missing else then video bootlegs I mentioned above?

I could share some of these videos, but only if the band does not mind.
I think I found live 2 videos I do not remember seeing before:

("El Meod Na'Ala" live in Tel-Aviv, evidently one used in Global Metal)

("The Beloved's Cry" from the same concert. I love the special way Shlomit and Kobi performed the song there.)

Kobi's point of view about downloading music from Internet:

"Greg: Let me ask you something else. With all the musicians I’ve interviewed for this festival, I’ve asked them about MP3s and illegal downloading. However, from comments you’ve made in other interviews, it seems you have a much different perspective on this than European or Scandinavian artists. You’ve talked about that for people in repressed nations, if it weren’t for these downloads, they’d never hear this music. I thought that was pretty profound… I had never thought about it from that perspective.

Kobi: This is again a fact I learned to know from living in the Middle East. Because I believe living there maybe I’m facing a situation, that I don’t know, the usual European or American band will not face. Orphaned Land has thousands of fans in Arabian countries that we can not perform live for them. And the regimes over there are not democratic and they can not just go on the streets with the t-shirt of SLAYER without being, I don’t know, really hassled. Now imagine how MP3 was beneficial for us. In those countries where our CDs are banned and completely impossible to reach, how lucky we are that we have the Internet that any Arabian can just go to a site and download our album. So yeah, I don’t get any royalty out of it, but fuck it, I give music to these guys. And I know that these guys will grow up to hate me and think that I want to kill him, and then he gets to hear my music, and this is above any propaganda, because either you like it or you don’t like it. Music is something that is so powerful that even you and your enemy, without knowing it, you can have the same musical taste, and you can love the same songs. And when you and your enemy have something in common this is the seed that you can become friends. So I think that MP3s has pluses and minuses… and yeah, I’m very happy that it’s possible and available because otherwise we wouldn’t have thousands, and I’m really talking thousands of fans. I receive thousands of e-mails from people from Syria, and Morocco and Lebanon and Jordan and Egypt and even, even Iran. And this would never happen if we didn’t have Internet and MP3 download."
