    Older brother got me into Alice Cooper, Ted Nugent, Sabbath, Zappa, and other stuff pretty young in the 70's. Kept listening to heavier stuff through the 80's and beyond.

    Not really. Messed around with bass for a while when I was a teenager. I just picked up another bass and am going to give it another try.

    Savatage
    Dream Theater
    Slayer

    City/country:
    Ottawa, Ontario

    Age (optional):
    25

    What first got you into metal?
    Metallica, Slayer, Iron Maiden, Anthrax, local acts and so on..... I went the normal route from rock to hard rock to metal's most available bands on wards.

    Play any instruments?

    Guitar, (and I've played bass very rarely) but not particularly seriously. I love to riff around and play by myself, but I get self conscious around others since I don't feel I'm up to par with others for jam sessions. That may be what's keeping me from realizing a skill I may have but I truly doubt it. I can do the recorder lol, but I prefer not to, ever.

    Top 5 bands?
    Metallica (whatever, haters... it's not the end of the world.)
    Death
    Amon Amarth
    Goat Horn
    Sabaton

    What do you do?
    I feel like ever since I lost my mum I am just going with the flow rather than being directed towards my goal like I used to be.... I am hoping, I think, to help others. I'd feel valued if I worked my way up to a great promotion that included full time work in a field that I am at least comfortable with. In short, I am not 100% fully sure what to do. I love to learn and I don't mind taking change of a situation if I feel like I can handle it. I'd like to help others find there place in the world without being embarrassed or critiqued in a hostile way early on in the career.

    What deck are you on?
    6 - 6471

    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?

    Uhhhh hmmmm....
    2014 - Cabin 4537!
    2015 - Cabin 6471!
    2016 - ???
    2017 - Likely my return :D .

    Pretty much. It's an expensive trip and that's a pretty high-paying profession.
    And a lot of techies I know seem to be into metal.

    But this is probably just all confirmation bias. I think metal and tech correlate pretty well though. I sit at a computer all day and listen to metal. It's nice.

    Metal resonates well with nerds like myself :beerwink: Especially in the Silicon Valley/SF Bay Area.

    Not in IT myself, but I think most of my friends are, and it does seem like all the IT events in Finland are full of metalheads and vice versa.

    Hey, I do have to take care of all our IT in our Finnish office, so I guess I could add IT support to my resume? :beerwink:

    Stained... didn't your avatar used to have a cat years ago? I know I've met you on the first couple of cruises. now you have Marlo in your avatar, the original Viking Bitch :)

    I'm Ktulu (aka: Kent). Been on 70k2011, 70k2012, and Barge to Hell. Looking forward to going on this boat that was only built in 2007!

    I'm 34.

    My older sister and her guy friends listening to Metallica right when the black album came out, got me into Metallica, and ultimately just about all kinds of metal.

    Marijuana is to Hard Drugs as Metallica is to All Metal. (Especially for people around my age and a little younger!)

    Types of Metal I'm into:
    Metal metal (which naysayers may call 'metalcore' I still hate that term... basically the evolution of what metallica, megadeth was... into Pantera... then Machine head... then heavier and heavier, new wave of american metal bands, etc. I also call it 'regular metal'.. because to me it is :))
    Industrial Metal
    Doom Metal
    Death Metal
    Black Metal
    Progressive Metal
    Classic Metal
    Thrash Metal (which is kind of the classic metal to me)
    Math Metal
    Gothic Metal
    And all of the hybrids..... DeathDoom, BlackDeath, DeathCore, TechDeath, ProgTechDeath, etc. etc. etc... never-ending..

    Not too much a fan of Power Metal or Punk Metal or Rock Metal, though I love the band Kamelot :)

    Occupation: Wealth Management

    What else am I supposed to say on here? I don't know... but I do know that I am looking forward to hanging out with my old metal family, meeting new metal family and celebrating our religion of metal music. I can't wait to have a great time with you all!

    Anyone coming that is from Maryland, USA?
    Anyone else like to smoke cigars?

    Let me know :)

    I am also a tech guy and like metal. Mostly because I have played Dungeons and Dragons my entire life, and most D&D campaigns can be written with Power Metal song lyrics.

    I always had respect for the old-school dark musicians (Black Sabbath, Dio, Danzig, Rob zombie, Screaming Jay Hawkins, Alice Cooper, you know the drill). This is probably the stupidest thing anyone has said, but I got into metal when I turned on the TV late and night and saw Metalocalypse for the first time (s1e4, Dethtroll if you're interested in the exact episode). Having missed most of the more modern metal acts (other than Metallica and Pantera, neither of which I was really into), this was new to me.

    Soon I discovered Ensiferum, Finntroll, and Nightwish. Paganfest 2008 introduced me to Tyr, Turisas, and Ensiferum. The rest, they say, is history.

    I am pretty much assuming that I won't be considered a "true metal fan" on the cruise, but I'm not that worried. I'm more of a "Jack Black" metalhead than a "troo kvlt" metalhead.

    Anyone who turns around and says "you aren't a true metal head" or "that's sissy metal" or anything to that effect is going to cop a swift headbutt to the face. We're all there to have fun, not take criticism from some d-bag who claims to be the reference point of the metal spectrum

    Let's be friends! I can very much relate to this. My path was more from "nu-metal" to power metal/symphonic metal, and I completely understand power metal overlapping with D&D and other nerd hobbies. I get really excited when I recognize references to books and games in song lyrics, and I'm most happy when metal is paired with awesome vocal harmonies.

    That said, everyone has their own taste. As long as we're all getting something out of this cruise, we should be able to hang out and not judge each other because of a slight variation in preference. \m/

    There's no such thing as a "fake metal fan", as Sheldon said, whoever would say that is just a douche. Also "troo kvlt" is just as laughable a label as "jack black" (all labels are).

    My first approach to metal was Metallica, when they were doing their S&M thing, but didn't dwelve deeper. Then I had a Magö de Oz phase followed by the revelation of both Folk Metal and Power Metal, and then thanks to the internet I discovered the vastness of the world that is Metal. My taste in metal is continuously changing, I will listen to pretty much anything except the "cores", not because they're fake but they just don't do it for me, I'm always looking to listen to bands I don't know and I still consider myself a neophite in this world. I mean, I listened to Hammerfall before I listened to Iron Maiden, HAHAHAHA! So there really isn't a RIGHT way to be a metal fan, we're all just a bunch of crazy people who love music for one reason or another, and lean to one side of the spectrum or the other.

    I never thought you'd actually resort to violence, just thought to point out that it's not cool to be a bigger asshole when dealing with one. Well, ok, it's cool if you're Bill Haraldstad or dealing with him. :lol:
