Here is one prediction: SALTATIO MORTIS Since 2015 Andy has been booking one of the big German Mittelalter metal bands (In Extremo, Saltatio Mortis and Subway to Sally). If we follow the same rotation, this year is Saltatio's turn. I really hope you're right. I loved them on the boat last time, and...
In retrospect, I realize the main reason (other than dates) I’m passing next year is that this year sucked for me, especially with the huge sticker shock that I described previously: - Due to late announcements I didn’t even finish filling up my band spreadsheet like I do every year, I stopped at 5...
The clock has run out for me. I've set my vacation dates, so I'm officially not going next year, unless something extraordinary happens during the next week. That sucks. But what were you waiting for? I've booked my vacation dates as well, and they coincide with Jan. 7-11. I've also coincidentally ...
Feuerschwanz are really fun! I saw them at Wacken Winter Nights this year, and I had their most recent album on repeat for a good chunk of the winter and spring. They are super gimmicky, in a good way. I'd love to have them on the boat. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x-A5clw2N3E https://www.youtube...
Brothers of Metal
Demons and Wizards
The Dread Crew of Oddwood
Nodfyr is the only N band that would make me shit myself. At this point I'm cool with whatever. I've only heard one Dragony song and thought it was great.
Thanks for making sure I don't have time to listen to them before sailing, Skipper!
I've officially stopped caring. I'm in South Beach and the weather is beautiful. I'm drinking a beer on the balcony and there is a drag show happening in the bar downstairs. We're going to get the boat, the bands, the people... Yeah, I'll have things to say on my comment form. But really, unless it ...
I've heard this many times. Once it was from a band that is playing this year. ...so we're here, 9 bands left and I'm heading to Miami in 4 days. So. Fucking. Lame. Where's everyone from when I complained earlier this year, telling you that it doesn't matter because Andy always delivers and the cru...
I'm hoping for Brothers of Metal next, but predicting Borknagar or Beast in Black. We don't have an industrial band yet, do we? I would love Eisbrecher or Turmion Katilot. If you want industrial, Ministry just finished touring...and they were fantastic! Omgosh, if it's Ministry my inner 16 year old...
It depends why you're there. If you only want to catch shows, you can catch a lot of them. If you like the pool, you see fewer shows. If you like the absolutely unbeatable socializing, you see fewer shows. I bring my kids, so I see way fewer shows than most, but I spend more time at the pool, which ...
