Israeli heavy metal group Orphaned Land has posted a message online, discussing their recent supporting slot for Metallica in Israel. Their message reads as follows:

“It was 17 years ago, in 1993 when I saw Metallica for the first time. There were barely any metal concerts of foreign bands in Israel that time. I still remember that day, I was 17 years old only, the moment where they played 'Fade To Black' is for sure the highlight moment of my youth. Time went by and here we are, finding ourselves sharing the stage with the fathers of metal. Orphaned Land exist for 18 years now, we accomplished some success ourselves and toured the world. Still, I cannot remember when I was exited like that, the fact that we even had a small chat with the Metallica members is a moment to remember, I know that they are just humans, but they are our childhood heroes! This was such a night to remember and a great closure to this youth moment I had with Metallica.

"Unfortunately, we saw only six songs from the amazing Metallica concert and then we had to run to the airport to catch a flight to play at the equally fantastic Rock Hard festival in Germany. We arrived on Sunday at an amazing venue, a sunny day and a rare atmosphere, some kind of a big metallic family gathering. The fans were great, we also met many friends who came, everyone was red like a tomato (from the sun) and the show was one hell of a party.

"Thank you Metallica!!! Thank you Rock Hard fest!!"
