    Been reading these forums for a while but not been able to get an e-mail to allow me to be authorized. My joy in life is traveling and meeting new people. I hate going places where I can't speak the language so I've tried to learn quite a few. I'm nearly fluent in French and can carry on a conversation in Italian. I'm currently working on Dutch. I'm convinced that I can learn any language except for Spanish. I've taken the intro course at the local university twice and had to drop out. It's just way to similar to Italian.

    Name:
    Laura

    City/country:
    Blacksburg, VA US - You've only heard of it if you know Michael Vick or remember the massacre here 6 years ago.

    Age (optional):
    35

    What first got you into metal?
    I grew up w/ hair metal in the 80s and then got back into it after I saw Phantom of the Opera on Broadway and one of my friends gave me Nightwish

    Play any instruments?
    Regretfully I have no musical ability

    Top 5 bands?
    Epica
    Metallica
    Nightwish pre-Anette
    Within Temptation
    Lacuna Coil

    What do you do?
    I'm an R.N. but can't find a job so I'm currently delivering pizzas.

    What deck are you on?

    Only as an American. I think here most people learn Spanish, if anything extra. Everywhere else I've been people know two if not more fluently. I guess it's all the English T.V. most of you all watch. I'd assume computers might have something to do with it too. I've always been surprised when in Northern Europe, especially the Netherlands and Sweden, that people speak better English than where I live in the U.S.

    For us in the Nordics there's an easy explanation: almost all foreign tv shows are subtitled, not dubbed in our own languages. And even though the Scandinavians understand each others to some extent (as do we with the Estonians), them and us are small nations who need to learn other languages in order to communicate and do trade with the rest of the world.

    Oh, I recommend you try and learn Finnish. I can guarantee it's not too similar to any language you already speak. :lol:

    Kiitos. I have a good friend from Finland and I'm pretty sure your long consonants would give me difficulty. My cousins in Denmark can understand Swedish and Norwegian easily but they can't understand him. I definitely got good at French watching subtitled films back in highschool

    First timer here. I've been trying to get on broad the last couple years but somehow work and family health issues seem to get in the way in January :cry:

    City/country:
    The (dreaded) City of L.ost and Fallen A.ngels, California, United States
    My true home is only somewhere back in Suomi :(

    Age (optional):
    34

    What first got you into metal?
    Master of Puppets

    Play any instruments?
    Guitar, bass, vocals, piano, & flute (unfortunately, I completely suck after graduate school from not practicing) :(

    Top 6(66) bands? (not in any particular order)
    Death
    Sentenced
    Samael
    Danzig
    Hypocrisy
    Nevermore

    Top 6(66)+ Metal Guitarists? (not in any particular order):
    Marty Friedman
    James Murphy
    Miikka Tenkula
    Alex Skolnick
    Roope Latvala
    Devin Townsend
    Jeff Loomis

    Top 6(66) Metal Epic Gigs? (not in any particular order)

    What do you do?
    You really don't want to know--something in the mental health field.

    What deck are you on?
    Don't know yet. Somebody help me get on broad (preferably in a double cabin)! Otherwise, I'll just take my chances and go for the single passenger route & pay UMC an extra 100USD for a double cabin or take one of these "Recruit a Cabin Mate" spots. Please PM with any info, thanks!

    What's a creepy thing I can say when I see you that no stranger should know and will weird you out that I do?
    I was pathetic enough to stand by myself with a frozen beer in downtown Helsinki in -30 C weather waiting for the Finnish National Hockey Team to arrive to the public "celebrations" after their loss to Sweden in the Torino Olympics Gold Medal game :cry:

    I hope I can make this work this time around and meet all of you cool global metalheads. Meeting some possible musicians interested in forming a Sentenced tribute band would be a plus! :viking:

    That's the important part. If I remember correctly, booking closes at least 3 days out from sailing as RC needs to lock the passenger list. I could be way wrong but book fast just in case!

    At the very last moment, I will be on broad with all of you! I will be flying in at the last moment, so I don't know if I'll be able to join in the pre-cruise festivities but hope to meet you all!

    Samlanda--I will be your cabin mate. Who are the other 2 cabin mates in our quad? You can email me with the info too. :bangers:

    What first got you into metal? Couldn't sleep when I was like 12 and got up to watch tv, ended up watching a 3 hour metal segment of a music video show. Picked up the love from there, so thank you RAGE!

    Play any instruments? Drums, vocals (clean or growl) and some dodgy as keyboard knowledge.

    Top 5 bands?
    Sonata Arctica
    Nightwish
    12 Foot Ninja
    Alice Cooper
    The other varies, at the moment Symphony X

    What do you do? Sound tech, lights, and roadie in music theatre and hopefully soon circus.

    What deck were you on? 9

    Literally the best experience in my entire life, short as it's been. In Vegas at the mo and it doesn't even compare, with all it's money and music and beautiful gear porn. I miss the cruise, can't wait for next year! Was fucking awesome to meet you all.

    So, I've just made my profile today. (super late, I know). So, I figured I'd start here. Hope to see you all in 2015!

    City/country:
    Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

    Age (optional):
    22

    What first got you into metal?
    In my teens, I lived in the UK. So, in my mallgoth years, I feel in love with CoF, as any teenage girl does. I bought my ticket to my first show and after that, I was hooked.

    Play any instruments?
    Drums. My girlfriend and I play in a band we like to call Procrastinator. Get it?

    Judas Priest

    Mostly, I work on my motorcycles. I've got an old Kawi that I'm working on turning into an oldschool Metal-as-fuck cruiser. I also hit the gym and run with my dog frequently. I collect metal records as well, so, I'm always on the lookout for my next addition.

    What deck are you on?
    It varies

    What's a creepy thing I can say when I see you that no stranger should know and will weird you out that I do?
    It really really bugs me when a man wears a tie, but, doesn't bother/know how to tie a full Windsor knot!

    Hey guys! I've been posting on these forums for two or three weeks now, but I figured it's time I properly introduce myself here. You may also recognize me from the 70 Tons facebook page, i'm one of those people who comments on all the updates - despite never having actually attended the cruise before. Heh :lol:

    Name: Spencer, but Spence feels less "professional" or something.

    Country: USA, although I also have dual citizenship. So i'm both American and Canadian. I live just two hours out of Boston, and frequent there often for concerts. :)

    Age: 20 in June. Sadly if I end up going in 2015, I won't be able to legally drink. But hopefully that won't stop me having from fun. :givebeer: :givebeer: :givebeer:

    What got me into metal: Bit of a backstory. My brother Dylan is eight years older than me. So when I was about 7, he was about 15. He was SUPER into music, so naturally, I wanted to be too. He was into a bunch of different styles of music, but the one style of music that stuck out to me was power metal. So i'd steal his CDs when he was gone for weekends or whatever. So I was getting super into Blind Guardian, Stratovarius, Sonata Arctica, Nightwish, Gamma Ray and the like all when I was like 7 or 8. My first concert was Nightwish in 2004 in Worcester MA, when Tarja was still with the band. I was ten years old. :D

    The funny thing was I never realized it was "metal," I just NEVER thought in terms of genres. So when I was 13/14ish, I only then learned I was a "metal" fan and it was kind of odd because I had(at that point) assumed all the Bullet for my Valentine esque crap the scenekids at my school were listening to as metal. Haha

    Also, here's this for silliness. My brother Dylan's "power metal phase" only lasted for about a halfyear when he was 15. I'm still into all those bands now, over a decade later. Whoops.

    What do I do? Not a whole lot. Transitional phases and whatnot. I'm currently on disability for depression and anxiety, but i'm also trying to ease myself into the real world as well.

    What deck am I on, I haven't ordered or found mates to go with yet. I mainly want to wait until at least a good dozen or so band announcements first.

    Creepy fact. Start singing Shakira choruses at me, chances are I will kiss you and sing with you. ;)

    Definitely don't let the fact that you can't buy booze stop you from going! It's usually not an issue anyways. ;)

    A metal forum is the last place I expected to see someone quote Alexander Pope. O.o

    Or at least, according to Google that's who you're quoting. :P
