    Welcome to the forum, good to see more newcomer Canadians!! This might be the best answer I have ever seen :D

    It is inifinitely cooler than anything I could ever come up with......things like.....".....um I think I heard Enter Sandman on the radio one time" or "I saw the video for Cherry Pie on MuchMusic one time and was hooked instantly"...my mom had Alabama and Conway Twitty tapes.... :beerbang: ....so unfortantely my only exposure to metal for the first decade or two was what I could get on the radio...I didn't stumble upon and develop an appreciation and love for the more extreme forms of metal until I was in my 30s.

    As a fellow lover of poutine I don't know how it is possible to live in Montreal and not be 400 lbs....I fucking love that city :beerwink:

    You have the greatest mom ever
    I work in IT too, like almost 50% of us here. Are you working at the studio on St-Laurent ? It's 15 minutes walking distance to my work place. I heard from people working there that doing way too much overtime is just normal there...
    Are you going to HeavyMTL ?

    Hi :) This will be mine and my bf's first cruise - safe to say we are pretty excited =D

    City/country:
    Tasmania, Australia.Like the Tasmanian Devil

    Age (optional):
    28 (both of us)

    What first got you into metal?
    I always really loved music - I was super into Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Alanis Morissette when I was a kid, then I moved on to spice girls... I made the jump directly from spice girls to Korn and then Slipknot after I saw Korn on a morning music program one weekend and thus began the journey into the metal...
    The other half was a huge AC/DC fan as a kid and got introduced directly to Metallica around the same time I was discovering nu metal :lol:

    Play any instruments?
    I have ocassionally fumbled around on bass, but never actually practice so have been sitting solidly on 'early beginner' for about 7 years - so, no.
    The other half plays guitar and has a couple bands going on - you can check one of them out here if you're interested https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-n5Ly9qKIzU

    Top 5 bands?
    Thats not an easy question!
    Gamma Ray is top for both of us...
    then Nightwish, Epica, Skyclad, Son of Aurelius just based on what ive been listening to lately - top 5 is too hard.
    his would be Rage, Morgana Lefay, Annhiliator (older) and Sabbat


    What do you do?
    I am a Medical Scientist, he is an automotive refinisher


    What do you like to do in your spare time?
    I play Roller Derby - thats pretty much my spare time done. I do enjoy a good video game, otherwise I'm watching cartoons or Doctor Who. Between work and derby I don't have time for much else!


    What deck are you on?
    3

    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?

    Don't think I've done one of these yet! This will be my wife and I's first cruise and we are both super excited. Can't wait for February!!!!

    City/country:
    small town Ontario, Canada...commute to the big city of Hamilton to make a living.

    Age (optional):
    34

    What first got you into metal?
    My older cousin was a big metal fan. Got me into bands like Megadeth, Anthrax, Metallica and Iron Maiden back in the late 80s. Internet didn't exist back then so I relied on the radio to introduce me to music....hello hair metal. I followed the herd into the grunge and alt-rock movement in the 90's and won't tell you what I listened to in high school. Nu-metal was next and then I actually got so fed up with music that I stopped listening for a couple of years until opening up my mind and ears and giving other metal genres a chance. The internet is a wonderful thing and soon I was finding more amazing bands than I could possibly dream of. My taste in metal has continued to get darker and more and more extreme as the last 6 or 7 years have gone by. Aren't we supposed to mellow out as we get older???? :deathhorns:

    Play any instruments?
    Nope..have tried to pick up the guitar a couple of times but just don't have the time or drive/motivation.

    Top 5 bands?
    Really hard to choose just five and they are always constantly changing.
    Iron Maiden (Legends...they will always be top five for me)
    Amon Amarth (My gateway band into Death, love everything they put out....amazing live)
    Eluveitie (IMO the perfect blend of folk and melo-death)
    Kvelertak (So much fucking energy, I just can't get tired of these guys)
    Opeth (Another gateway band into the harsher side of metal, will always be a fave)

    What do you do?
    I work in the Metallurgy :headbanger: department of a large steel mill. Work in the test labs.....basically I rip apart steel for a living :deathhorns: My job sounds way more "METAL!!!" than all you IT weenies! :lol: jk I'm a computer nerd at heart too.

    What do you like to do in your spare time?
    Listen to metal....duh. I also started home-brewing last year and have about a dozen batches under my belt now. Have really been impressed by my last couple batches (A really sweet tasting and dry Saison, and a hopped to high heavens Citra IPA). I'm also an avid veggie gardener. My basement looks like a grow-op in the late winter with all of the heirloom pepper and tomato seedlings under makeshift fluorescent light fixtures. Started growing hops last year as well....They are spreading nicely and starting to produce cones this year (see profie pic :beerwink: )

    What deck are you on?
    Deck #9

    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?
    My first concert ever was fucking Puff Daddy......got damn it high school was just a depressing bag of shit.......Really wish I would have known about Opeth, Bolt Thrower and Dismember back then....and wasn't so worried about "fitting in".

    What first got you into metal?
    A friend bought a Christan metal cassette of a group called Saint (Too Late for Living). Later that summer we went to a christian metal festival and I heard Deliverance, Vengeance Rising, Sacred Warrior, Barren Cross and several others.
    Started listening to the heavier stuff like Crucified, Living Sacrifice, Mortification and Believer.
    From there I found Bolt Thrower, Entombed and Cannibal Corpse. And on and on...Now I listen to most types of metal
    but prefer death, thrash and sludge/stoner metal to the rest.

    Play any instruments?
    Not at all - but once I've had a few beers I will tell you that I can play the drums..

    Top 5 bands?
    This list is always changing -
    High on Fire, Acid Bath, Cannibal Corpse, Skeletonwitch and Gojira.
    Honorable mentions - Bolt Thrower, Dying Fetus, Slayer, Despised icon

    What do you do?
    IT

    What do you like to do in your spare time?
    Travel, brew, photography and hike. Been on several cruises all over the place but this will be my first metal cruise.

    What deck are you on?

    Alajuela, Costa Rica.

    Age (optional):
    27, I look much older.

    What first got you into metal?
    There was a music video show broadcast on a local TV channel that I always watched when I got home from school. They played mostly classic rock staff such as Jim Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and so on. But one they the guys at the TV station said "Fuck it!, we will play the whole goddamned Iron Maiden's Raising Hell concert". There was no turning back. I got doomed!

    Play any instruments?
    Nope. Not even guitar hero.

    Top 5 bands?
    Saxon. 21 Records and they still sound more metal than anything else. The most amazing metal band on this Galaxy.

    Listen to my records while reading a good book. Watching fucked up movies (I mean real films, not Gore). Brewing beer and drinking crafted brewed beer.

    What deck are you on?
    I survived the 2015 boat, not going to the next one, definitely returning on 2017.

    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?
    You should not have used that watch your uncle gave you before he died.

    Nice to meet you guys :cheers:

    My parents were listening to Zepplin and Sabbath and stuff when I was little and I grew up on MTV Rocks and Headbangers Ball. So lots of 80's glam, heavy metal and the like. Then it was just a natural progression to the heavier Metallica, Megadeth, Anthrax and Slayer which evolved into a love of death and black metal later on. I love it all.


    Play any instruments?
    Nope, just singing along and playing air guitar

    Top 5 bands?
    Thats a hard one since it varies constantly. Right now...
    Saxon
    Judas Priest
    Inquisition

    Hello everyone. Robert here, speaking on behalf of myself and my girlfriend Diane. This is our first cruise and we are beyond excited for this trip. I myself am finally glad to join this great online community as I have been lurking the boards for quite some time now trying to get a better understanding of what's in store come February, but never joined due to not booking. Fun fact, we booked a couple hours before the last round of announcements started. It was meant to be!

    City/Country:
    Los Angeles, CA USA

    Age
    I'm 24 she's 19

    What first got you into metal
    Well I can't speak on her behalf here but for me it was probably a combination of when I saw KISS live in 2003, getting certain extreme sports video games with rad soundtracks, and pro wrestling had something to do with it.

    Play any instruments?
    I play guitar and she is going to start learning too come next month.

    Top 5 Bands
    Mine:
    Vektor
    Iron Maiden
    Rush
    Rhapsody of Fire
    Rammstein

    Hers:
    Dio
    King Diamond/Merciful Fate
    Venom
    Iron Maiden

    What do you do
    I work setting up and tearing down trade shows and private events and she's a student attending a Cal State University and working par time selling fashion accessories.

    What deck are you on
    9

    Whats one creepy thing I can say when I see you that no stranger should know and will weird you out that I do?
    Well that's a strange question but I guess you can call me by my nickname, Turtle.

    We can't wait to meet you all, and watch some killer bands!

    Hello everyone! This is my first time on the 70000 tons of metal cruise! I have been wanting to go since 2011, and now finally I get to go! So, I figured I might as well introduce myself...

    City/country:
    Saskatoon, Canada.

    Age (optional):
    28

    What first got you into metal?
    In high school I had a friend who was a metalhead. He showed me "Nemesis" by Arch Enemy. I told him that I did not like the man's growling and he told me that the growl is by a female. I could not believe him so I listened to the song so much that it really grew on me. I came to love not only Arch Enemy but a lot of other metal as well.

    Play any instruments?
    Used to play piano, but that was not my choice so it did not last very long.

    Top 5 bands?
    I have 6 favourite bands...the consistent top 3 are: The 69 Eyes, Amon Amarth, and Agalloch
    My current other 3 favourite bands are: Moonspell, Mastodon, and Swallow the Sun

    What do you do?
    I am a student.

    What deck are you on?
    Deck 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?
    I know you still like some Savage Garden songs.

    See you all soon!

    First time on the cruise, I first heard about the cruise in 2010 when Iced Earth were anounced to partake. It's been a dream ever since, and now that Iced Earth are back this year I couldn't miss the opportunity

    I'm from NB Canada, 33 years of age

    My favourite bands are Iced Earth, Iron Maiden, Megadeth, Primus and Black Sabbath

    Favourite bands on the cruise are Iced Earth, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Cradle of Filth, Krisiun, Sodom and Rotting Christ, I would add Aura Noir and Samael, although, I'm still discovering them.

    Bands that I discovered that kicks ass. Ancient Rites, Holy Moses and Tsudjer

    What got me into metal. When I was 4 years old, my cousin from Quebec brought Def Leppard Hysteria, I loved the fast rythm and high energy right away. I later got into Guns N Roses, Metallica, Iron Maiden and so on...

    Anyway, can't wait for the cruise, see you on the boat! :beerbang:

    One noobie here. Travelling alone so looking forward to meet nice people to hangout with.

    City/Country:
    Lohja, Finland

    Age:
    39 years young

    What first got you into metal?
    As a kid i was into Kiss, Iron Maiden, Wasp and such. It was more about those guys looking real cool than the music (though those bands have killer songs too).
    About '88 me and my few friends somehow discovered Slayer and soon Carcass, Napalm Death and then the mighty swedes Entombed and Carnage/Dismember and the Florida DM/Morrisound scene. We spotted new music from Metal Hammer and Kerrang mags and Metalliliitto radio show.


    Top 5 bands?

    1. Deströyer 666. Unchain the Wolves is THE perfect metal album. Right amount of aggression, melody, overall feeling and great songs.
    2. Slayer. My top band of all time but i'm mostly into first five albums.
    3. Electric Wizard.
    4...Can't do it, too difficult.. Kyuss, Sepultura, Black Flag, Bolt Thrower, Darkthrone, St. Vitus, Skitsystem, Nasum, Crowbar, Melvins, Gospel of the Horns and lots of not so metal bands too.

    What do you do?
    Bottling supervisor at a beverage plant :heavydrink:


    What deck are you on?
    2

    What bands have you discovered through 70k?
    Since it's my first time i haven't really found anything yet. Maybe Vallenfyre fits here.
    I'm really not into symphonic and melodic and not that much into folk or viking metal. So my mission for this event could be discovering something i like of those genres.

    What do you like to do in your spare time?
    Besides metal?
    I'm into betting and following sports (NHL, English Premier League, Finnish Liiga).
    I also do a bit of sports myself (floorball and soccer) and like to walk in the woods.
    Recently started to explore rums and cigars.


    Whats one creepy thing I can say when I see you that no stranger should know and will weird you out that I do?
    I went to Stockholm, Sweden just to see a One Direction show..
