Some thoughts from Heidelberg

From Dean;
 
"I can honestly say that I've never had a gig experience like the one we've just had. The setting was stunning, the sound crystal clear and superb, the bands were brilliant and the audience were something else entirely.
 
I can probably speak for the other bands at Prog the Castle, and I can definitely speak for the guys in Anubis when I say that the audience at Prog the Castle was the best we've ever played to. I've never felt so much warmth, enthusiasm and joy from an audience, it's a feeling I won't forget easily.
 
Big thanks to Brian and Ella for organising such a great event. I hope Prog the Castle will happen again, it's too good not to."


 
From Steve;
 
"Prog The Castle is one of the greatest things I've done, a marvellous festival, in an absolutely stunning venue, a great way to kick off our dates in Europe."


 
From Dave
 
"A beautiful, enchanting space that seemed a perfect backdrop to Anubis' first show outside of Australia.

Stepping out onto the stage at midnight, the band was welcomed with a wave of love and warmth never before experienced, as people who had lived their lives to the soundtrack of our music finally got to hear us play it for them in person.

I can't express the feeling in words, as all of our most powerful musical moments, some perhaps less suited to Australian stages, were dispatched with enthusiasm and a renewed vigor, despite our relative jetlag.

Songs from all three albums seamlessly combining into set that best represented the most grandiose and epic side of Anubis.

I am proud of the music we created, proud of my bandmates, and hugely proud of the legacy we have and most of all, I'm massively proud of the memories we created for ourselves and for our fans.

I will leave a piece of my heart in Heidelberg forever. Germany had promised us so much and delivered even more. I will never forget that night and how it felt, and how that audience felt to immerse myself in.

The rest of the tour has so much to live up to."

    Manuela and I are so very proud of you guys. We made you a promise...and we kept that promise...that Prog The Castle would provide you with a platform to blast your way into into the hearts and minds of our audience. Those that were there will one day say..."We were there when Anubis took Europe by storm, and joined the list of premier 'must-see' bands" You've thanked us...but we also thank you... It was a privilege and a pleasure for us to have you close our little festival. Much love and immense respect. Brian and Ella. Prog The Castle...presented by Delicious Irony Promotions

    I expected a professional and enjoyable show full of great music. I never expected the level of performance you blokes gave us. One of the rare times when I was just speechless at the sheer brilliance and vibrancy of a band in absolutely perfect form. I genuinely feel privileged to have been able to experience this unique occasion. Heartfelt thanks to all of you for giving me the musical time of my life.

    Still overwhelmed with emotion about your wonderful performance in the middle of the night. YOU truly where the Kings of the Castle! I'm totally proud to have been part of the audience, and to have had the opportunity to speak to all of you after the concert. I'm convinced that ANUBIS will become a well-known band in all Europe, and wish you good luck for your two further concerts in the next days. I'm truly looking forward to meeting you again sometime in the future, and wish you good health and lots of happy moments at all your concerrts. Greetings from Switzerland!

    I´ve had the great happiness to see your show in Heidelberg. And it was really fantastic. So much power and feeling, all this beatiful music, perfectly performed. Sometimes in life you experience magic moments. And your concert in heidelberg was definitely one of these seldom, wonderful moments. Thank you so much (for the music and friendly talk that evening) and good luck, hope to see you again!!:))

    It was a great pleasure for me to make the light show for you guys. I`ve had heard a few numbers before but not the new album. My timing for some songs was really out of place but you handled it really perfect. The show you delivered was perfect. The songs you`ve played made think a lot about the live, even months later. I`ve become a huge fan of yours and I really really hope, that you will return for the 2017 Prog the Castle event. This show was so beautiful, great and powerful. It had even more that I could imagine. Thank you very much for this great experience that night and all those sleepless nights afterwords for your music

    Thanks Andre for those kind words. The whole band were so impressed by the crew at Heidelberg. Both the sound and lighting were fantastic. A few lighting changes that may have been slightly out of time wasn't something we noticed at all, we're all just thankful that the light show was sympathetic to our music and greatly added to the atmosphere of the evening. We're not sure we'll be at the next PTC event as Brian and Ella are very keen to present an entirely new and fresh show next time around which we're certain will easily match the 2015 show. What we are sure of though, is that the tour in 2015 will not be our last trip to Europe, and you and the guys from Fours will be high on our list of people to work with again, it really was a great pleasure. Who knows, if we can set up a tour at the right time, we might even make it to PTC 2017 as part of the audience? That would be nice. Cheers Dean
