    VR is a solid repeat and since I doubt we'll get Arch Enemy, Izegrim will be a great substitute. After reading the above post I am now dubious of "The Church" of Pungent Stench and also plan on staying as far away from Haggard as possible...

    well, the latest have been pretty heavy so we will probably see something light and fluffy next Dallas. :lol:

    Not exactly my kind of bands, but I think it's alright :)

    Izegrim has Always been somekind of a 'local' band here, so funny that they play on the boat :P
    Haggard cán be very nice IF the sound is good (I've seen both as well enchanting, as horrible shows)
    The other two I don't even know, but I don't care since a person needs drinking and eating time as well... ;)

    We should always expect a few 'unknowns' to be added. That's a good thing too!
    Izactly what I mean, with Izegrim!

    Image

    I'd never heard of their music before this news today, not once, not ever!
    I go to their website. Tacky clowns all over but the music was great :)

    As for Pungent Stench. I'd prefer Hollonthon. Saw them @Kaltenbach Open Air in 08.
    Never saw PS. Might be a lot of fun though.
    Image

    Haggard is a silly name for a band that sounds like...a Therion demo session! Uh oh! Angst towards me now!

    Haggard is a great announcement.As stated they'll sell the rest of the cabins for sure.
    Vicous rumors always a good band.
    Izegram sounds quite good but ufortunatly thats only because they sound like an Arch enemy tribute band.

    I listened to a few Izegrim songs and I didn't think they sounded anything like Arch Enemy. I thought the newest album sounded more like Grave. The lead singer has boobs, that's about as far as the comparisons go that I can see.

    Edit: Ok I listened to an older song and I definitely hear the Arch Enemy comparison now.

    Both bands are founded in the same year, there's nothing 'tribute' about Izegrim.

    Variety couldy end up being decent i guess but atm it really ain't. I was expecting few awesome bands and then bunch of semi-interesting ones that are worth checking out live a bit. So far it seems I've seen most of those semi-interesting ones already and they hold no repeat value to me. And the awesome count is still short of few bands comparing to previous years.


    Oh yeah and the boat needs more HEAVY METAL.

    So I would not expect anything more for the next couple of days, but definitely something monday or tuesday.

    Wife reckons there is some hidden meaning in the last part of the announcement " Any more hidden gifts before the year is out? Maybe some Fireworks?"

    The capitalisation of F in Fireworks - maybe FIREwind? Rhapsody of FIRE? Brother FIREtribe?

    This Izegrim stuff is hilarious. Do the Amott brothers get kickbacks from this band's material? :lol: They should at least dye the singers hair to a different color and add like 3 seconds of clean vocals to make it not so fucking obvious.

    Congrats from them getting on the cruise though. Andy is obsessed with getting a set amount of bands with female fronted vocals.

    I'm excited that we've added Haggard and Vicious Rumors, I'll look into Izegrim - but it doesn't look like something I'd watch a full set of.

    Pungent Stench I don't know, but band name drama turns me off... I hate it when there's two separate versions of a band touring :evil:. Irrelevant to many, but it's a pet peeve all the same.
    2014 - Cabin 4537!

    2016 - ???

    Pretty good announcements.
    I haven't heard of Izegrim til now. I am excited to see them on the boat.
    I don't know about these Arch Enemy comparisons, I think you could easy just as well say they both are similar to Holy Moses if one wants to claim virtue for originality.
    I was never so excited about Pungent Stench to care enough about band member disputes. It's a bit off putting, but I think it would be hard for me to care less.

    why don't you stay home. These people who bitch about no announcement and then whine about the bands confirmed must have nothing better to do. The 70K cruise is not tailor made for each metalhead. And it's more of a way of life, not only about the bands. Maybe people will think rationally next time and wait until all bands are announced before booking their cabin. Personally, I think the line up is excellent. And I look forward to seeing many of my friends next month and headbanging to some awesome metal bands!

    Haggard are really cool.
    I saw them at my hometown many years ago (1998!) as supporter for Atrocity, and they outdid the headliner by far.
    Although I must admit I went to that event to see Haggard anyway, so I was probably biased ;)

    Great to have them onbroad!

    why don't you stay home. These people who bitch about no announcement and then whine about the bands confirmed must have nothing better to do. The 70K cruise is not tailor made for each metalhead. And it's more of a way of life, not only about the bands. Maybe people will think rationally next time and wait until all bands are announced before booking their cabin. Personally, I think the line up is excellent. And I look forward to seeing many of my friends next month and headbanging to some awesome metal bands!

    Cheess


    Excellent points all around Scott....especially that the "70K cruise is not tailor made for each metalhead." Exactly! How could it possibly be when you think about... for even just 5 seconds or less? I also agree with you that many people (not me, by the way) consider this cruise a kind of "way of life," so the actual line-up is less relevant for many. Having said that, I don't know how anyone could really complain about any of the UMC line-ups to date, including the current one - in my view there is plenty of variety, stellar acts, unique bands, and so on to more than occupy one's time during the cruise.

    My issue at this point in time is that I do want to know nearly the complete line-up of a fest prior to booking and UMC just drags their ass too much....tired of that. I'm also feeling a bit jaded & tired of Miami & the Caribbean in general as I've been so many times in my life now. I made an exception with the Prog Nation Cruise in February because that line-up was/is truly "tailor made" for me personally & my life-long love of all things prog :P (as much as Hole in the Sky 2011 was for my black metal love)...and I seriously want to see every band (the one I'm not so keen on - Periphery - I will check out anyway; and btw, the entire line-up was announced prior to booking commencing, so I was able to make a decision, book early & get a super cheap cabin).

    Most of you folks are going to have a great time on 70K 2014 - prolly even most of naysayers. Just you wait and see. :beerwink:

    Gotta agree with Scott, Laura and others about the lineup issues. So much variety. Anyone expecting a huge name, heavy-hitter has obviously not followed what this cruise is about. Sorry for Memnoch about another repeat but VR were amazing in round 2 and make me that much more disappointed in myself for not joining you folks once again this year. Raise an extra fist or two for me while yer rockin' that pool deck kids! :headbanger:
    So far at least, 2011, 2012 & 2015 were enough for me

    I figured Haggard would be on, a family member of mine looked into booking them for a NA tour they were setting up. I expected they'd be the token symphonic band (Rage with LMO, Therion) for this year. Watching a couple videos right now...geez, I know what's his name created the band and everything, but his vocals are pretty awful. Still though, good add!

    Haggard & Obituary got me to shut up. I am happy now and will have fun guessing the rest.

    I had already seen 12/25 so there are quite a bit of repeats for myself personally (great ones at that!) so I was slightly disappointed until the Haggard one. Two really good bands I would've had to travel to see, bands I like as repeats (this will be 13th+ time seeing FF :P ) & meeting many new people and seeing my cruise family. Happy happy joy joy, can't wait to see the rest of the lineup. Naysayers be patient, your time will come.
