    I have just talked with a great band that is still in negotiations with UMC, so there is hope.

    Love The Haunted but have seen them 3-4 times. Awesome that Marco's back. Will wait for their U.S. Tour run. Their S/T release is one of the best debut albums EVER.

    I'm a HUGE The Haunted fan, so this is really good. I'm happy for Marco getting clean and singing again, Jensen getting a chance to blow some minds, and the potential of having Anders and Jonas on-board meaning that ... AT THE GATES ... could be in in too :headbanger:

    Or maybe at the very least getting some At The Gates covers? I'd be cool with that.

    They used to play "Blinded By Fear" on their first tour. I wouldn't mind if they do it again, if ATG is not coming along.

    Anyone else suspect that the only reason we even got an announcement was because Glen the promoter of prog power called Andy and the festival out publicly? Comparing it to the Rock Harvest festival etc? I'll never go to prog power because of my tastes but I feel I owe that promoter a tip of my hat in thanks :lol: :roll:


    Didn't see the Glen The Promoter quote. Do you have a link? Also agree fully that an apology was needed...but I don't think Andy will ever apologize for anything.


    http://www.ultimatemetal.com/forum/progpower-usa-lounge/908767-70k-tons-cruise-drama.html

    Yup, I definitely don't see any apologies in our future - not even "soon" :lol:


    Although I read the full text of the Progpower promoter's long posts re: 70K Cruise Drama on the 70K Forum Fiends fb page (members had copied & pasted them there), I'd never been on the Progpower forum, so I thought I'd take a look-see this morning out of curiosity. Well, it seems that thread has been deleted. And for those who follow the 70K fb group, you already know that said thread re this topic (and the 80 or so comments) has been deleted there as well (and even the thread that said it had been deleted). There were some people on fb who expressed anger that another fest promoter would make such a post in the first place (calling it "unprofessional" and so on, even though as some pointed out - everything he said was 100% factual & accurate, nor was the original post written in a sensationalistic manner). Well, whatever one thinks of it (and I have mixed feelings about it myself) - it has been deleted. Go figure.

    I dont get why Andy doesnt like them or think they fit the cruise. Goatwhore's live performance puts most bands to shame. Then again I dont get a lot of Andy's reasonings :|

    I don't understand the Goatwhore craze. They're a cool band but they tour all the time. I swear they play here more than most local bands. What's the big deal? :?

    True - they do tour a lot - I saw them for the first time in October 2009 with Obituary and I've seen them twice since then, most recently in a killer gig with High on Fire last December (and I know they were here in Chicago at least 2 other times in that time period but I missed those gigs). The "big deal" for me is they are such an incredible live band - certainly one of the best I've seen, period. I can't remember if we've ever done a "top live bands" list thread here (and many of us love lists here! :P ), but I'd definitely put Goatwhore in a top 10 (of mine) - up there with the likes of (# of times seen in parentheses) Kvelertak (soon to be 3), Behemoth (3), Immortal (3), Amon Amarth (6), Marduk (5), Rammstein (2), Nine Inch Nails (1), & Dir en Grey (2).

    GOATWHORE is an American blackened death metal band, formed in 1997 in New Orleans, Louisiana.These guys are so cool, they changed my tire at the Milwaukee
    Metalfest. they wouldn't even let me do it myself( now that's metal brotherhood) Sammy Duet is also from ACID BATH which i have been a fan of from the start.
    hell the baphomet back patch I made him back in the 90's he still has on his jacket, so let's bring them on the ship Andy :metalguy: :metalguy: :metalguy: :metalguy: :metalguy: :metalguy: :metalguy: :metalguy: :metalguy: :metalguy: :metalguy: :metalguy:

    Yeah, if you don't get to see them that much then I understand, but for those of us in the States they've been on about as many absurd tours as Warbringer. I don't think either band is bad necessary, but they are both really played out for me. I say bring on something new (something many of us don't get to to see) for me that's what these cruises are all about. But then again, to each his/her own. Just my two cents.

    Yeah - if history repeats that is true. As I mentioned last week, there has never been any announcements between now and early december for any of the previous 70ks.

    Although there was a flurry (love that word) of announcements in November last year for Barge To Hell.....

    I don't think history will be repeating in this particular matter. I do believe we'll get an announcement or two before the month is over.

    With the negative press from Kamelot and ProgPower, its definitely important for the UMC/70K 'brand' that there is regular interactions from this point on.

    Any less will be catastrophic from a brand goodwill perspective.

    Not to mention that we only have 14 bands announced so far, which is low compared to previous cruises.

    How It All Started...

    by Andy » Wed Nov 13, 2013 7:44 pm


    Since the beginning we have always given a very few up and coming artists the chance to join us on 70000TONS OF METAL, The World's Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise. At our inaugural sailing there was a clear fan favorite, such a favorite that some of our veterans even initiated an unofficial award that bears their name, so it was clear for us that those guys have to come back for one last time on the Majesty Of The Seas: Please welcome CRIPPER onbroad 70000TONS OF METAL 2014!
