    Welcome! Yes, yes it does work that way. You can either load it with cash once you get on the ship or connect it to a credit card when boarding. Handy note, the card is water proof!

    Dead Can Dance are incredible and absolutely deserve a spot in anyone's top 5. Brendan Perry and Lisa Gerrard are brilliant.

    I've been privileged to see them three times. The first time (wayy back when) we only saw the last two-thirds of their performance...and it still became one of the top 5 live performances I've EVER seen...and I've seen some humdingers!
    Flew up to NYC and saw them at Radio City Music Hall the second time. That place is HUGE...and it seemed like we were a half-mile away. Still a great show.
    And then I saw 'em in 2012 on that reunion tour...just amazing!

    Another "sleeper" non-metal band that I love and a lot of metal muzos like* is Ozric Tentacles...but I digress.

    Agree with this and all the other DCD comments - I've been a fan since the 80s, but had never seen them until 2012 at Chicago's Millennium Park - beautiful gig in every way.

    I'm a 80s synthpop fanatic to death...


    I'm also a huge 80s synth-pop fan going back to that era...one of my fave musical genres of that time** :cheers: That music never gets old to me.... :mrgreen:

    a few favorites....
    Al Jourgensen & Ministry during his short-lived synth-pop stage....Revenge (1983): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3L0q6FQY0Y4
    Depeche Mode: New Life (1981): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZFnEhwmpjXI

    ** which is why 80s metal bands like Grim Reaper (who I just saw on Saturday) are new (to me) since *that* kind of music was not on my radar whatsoever then. :P

    How was GR and, more importantly to me personally, how did you enjoy the might ARGUS???

    When I saw the gig poster you posted in the gigs thread, it led me to the realization that I may have to do some traveling just to catch a gig of theirs sometime soon. Would hate to see them disband or something before I ever got a chance to hear them perform live :fear:

    Hi, guys! I just booked, so it's safe to say I'll be on the boat in 2015. We have months to go, but I'm pretty damn excited.

    City/country:
    Rochester, New York in the USA

    Age
    32, will be 33 on the cruise

    What first got you into metal?
    My best friend in high school started dating a guy who listened to extreme metal. We went camping and stole his Amorphis CD to listen to in the tent. Tales is still one of my favorite metal albums.

    Play any instruments?
    Tried my hand at guitar for a short while in high school, and I gotta say, I suck at music.

    Top 5 bands?

    It changes based on mood, but for now I'll say...

    *Anything with Devin Townsend in it
    Amorphis
    *Eluveitie
    Black Sabbath
    Opeth

    * - bands I actually saw live so far

    What do you do?
    I'm a Web Developer in a marketing office

    What deck are you on?
    8

    I bought a single ticket for a balcony quad, cabin 8674. If anybody here is gonna be my roomie, totally get in contact. I look forward to meeting some great fellow metal heads. :deathhorns:
    Top Picks: Allegaeon, Angelus Apatrida, Arkona, At the Gates, Chthonic, Devin Townsend, Down, Eluveitie, Enabler, Ex Mortus, Exodus, Eyehategod, Finntroll, Havok, Hypocrisy, Iced Earth, Ihsahn, Kreator, Nervosa, Nylithia, Rotting Christ, Sabaton, Sodom

    How was GR and, more importantly to me personally, how did you enjoy the might ARGUS???

    When I saw the gig poster you posted in the gigs thread, it led me to the realization that I may have to do some traveling just to catch a gig of theirs sometime soon. Would hate to see them disband or something before I ever got a chance to hear them perform live :fear:


    I really enjoyed both headliners - Riot on Friday (last on the bill at 11:20 pm) and Grim Reaper on Saturday (came on 11:45 pm). I was only slightly familiar with those two, but the rest of the line-up I was completely unfamiliar with. Since I had other plans earlier both evenings, I pretty much just went for those two & arrived pretty late both nights (Friday at 11 pm & Saturday at 10-ish). I caught the last song or so of Argus on Saturday, followed by Voltax from Mexico & then GR. Can't tell you much of anything about Argus, then. :oops: The *main* reason I went to the fest in the first place was to see Margie who came in from California, Ryan & Meredith, Jeff B and several others. It was really great to see everyone and I ended up liking the gigs much more than I expected (since that is generally not the kind of metal I gravitate toward). Steve Grimmett of GR is such a character & I got a big kick out of songs like "Rock You to Hell" & Grab Your Garmin." :P Also.. the brand new lead singer of Riot has a fantastic voice - I dubbed him the "heavy metal Steve Perry."

    Hey everyone... name's Mike. 2015 will be my first time!

    City/country:
    Avondale, Arizona, USA

    Age (optional):
    26

    What first got you into metal?
    Been listening to stuff like Metallica, Pantera and White Zombie since I was little because it was what my older sister listened to... one day back in high school I was flipping through TV channels and I landed on the Music Choice metal channel... discovered a lot of cool bands, including Children of Bodom who I got hooked on immediately and that opened me up to a whole new world of metal.

    Play any instruments?
    I was into electric guitar in high school, kinda lost interest after a while and haven't played in 6 or 7 years now... I still have a B.C. Rich Platinum Series Warlock hanging on my wall, but I sold all my amps and everything else. Someday when I have the time and money I'll pick up a new amp and try to get into it again. I do miss it sometimes.

    Top 5 bands?
    Paradise Lost
    Bloodbath
    Edge of Sanity
    Hypocrisy
    Nightwish

    What do you do?
    I'm a dispatcher for a small trucking company.

    What do you like to do in your spare time?
    Go to metal shows, go to bars, read, watch movies, sleep...

    What deck are you on?
    6

    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?
    Hmm... I'm a big fan of trance music. The really poppy kind.
