    OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG

    FREEDOM CALL!!!

    I never thought I'd see them live.

    Holy shit, I love this lineup. Good bands for my brvtal side and the weeniest band in the universe. Definite two-setter.

    And, yeah, I kinda expected you wouldn't like them, Joey.

    Btw, Sasha Gerstner from Helloween used to play with Freedom Call, apparently.

    Doing my best to be there for 2015.

    there is no band i can consider as a * headliner * role as - in flames, sabaton, metal church, kreator and helloween last cruise or edguy, kamelot , annihilator, hammerfall or nightwish the year before.

    or the best has yet to come, ( Annihilator, Brainstorm, Magnum, Armored Saint, Crimson Glory, Dokken )

    line up so far not too bad for me, as i will watch the most bands on the pooldeck with some drinks, sun and fun...., :whisky: :whisky: :chug: :chug:

    no offense, I love brainstorm but they are far from beihg a headliner.

    not judging the quality but Magnum is not "heavy metal" so is not a headliner for the metalheads

    i think there won't be a offical kamelot replacement. just another band that is not announced as "replacement"

    i agree, but what i wanna say was, that i would be very fine to have some bands as brainstorm etc..onboard,
    headliners as blind guardian, hammerfall, volbeat, megadeth, anthrax or slayer would be awesome, but i can not imagine that we will have such a big surprise during the last days....before joining the ship

    I have asked andy directly, on multiple occasions(!!!), to book Magnum but he doesn't consider them metal either :(

    But honestly - they are incredibly influential and quite frankly I reckon they are more 'metal' than Gotthard (no disrespect meant to Gotthard either - I love them to pieces).

    So yeah - not arguing with you, but I think Magnum would have a lot of fans on broad and would draw a very decent crowd due to the Bob's standing in the metal community with his work on projects like Avantasia.

    I don't know. Both play as headliner on Metaldays this year and Metaldays are not really big or have not expensive tickets.
    Metal is forever! Peace for all - Fuck fanatics.

    Don't cross your dick, dude.



    Anyways, yeah it was mentioned on facebook (based entirely from amount of facebook 'likes') that this year's cruise has 'smaller' bands. The 'biggest' ones this year are Death and Satyricon, with under half a million likes each. Compared to other years, 2011 testament with 1.4 million, 2012 nightwish with over 4 million (!!!), and 2013 in flames with over a million.

    From conversations I've had with Andy in the past, he's mentioned that he's always got to book these 'huge' bands to draw a bunch of people (This was before the 2013 cruise, but the bands he mentioned were nightwish and in flames). I'm wondering if there are any bigger bands booked that will fulfill the "WE HAVE BIG SURPRISES FOR YOU" claim. It's pretty late in the game, though.

    Absolutely. I'm really looking forward to Rising Storm, which is the smallest of them all, and I had heard of them before.

    maybe is too late to draw people with one announcement....

    I think only HUGE bands could have this effect so late in the season

    At this point they shouldn't be worried about selling the remaining cabins, just having a good lineup so that people will keep coming back.

    No, but at this point they won't be able to sell many tickets.

    Not to start the negative train. I just wonder about public opinion.... have we forgotten about the 6 month silence UMC gave us, and are we just letting it go if not? Or are we gonna hound Andy a little about it. Cause at this point I'm apathetic....

    CAN WE HAVE THE PAGANFEST LINEUP???? :metalguy: :shred:

    I will not bother no one about the silence. I will not book in advance.

    Maybe I will decide by december which Festivals I will attend the following year(except for ProgPower. The announce the next year line up in the first day of the festival)

    For financial reasons, this is most likely our last cruise.

    However the six months of silence was not appreciated.

    If the festival is amazing people will forget about it as usual.Panic book because they get special previous cruiser early booking.
    Or you wait.Then random people who never on cruise before start buying the cheap cabins at public sale.Then you panic and buy cabin to save money and reserve spot.Andys way of business is clever market strategy.He wants the cruise in a situation where he doesn't have to worry about big band to sell the main cabins.And it's worked for him every year.Wacken does the same.announce a few band and sells 100k tickets even though they can announce full list of crap bands after.Cruise is the same.They build up their certain yearly goers who spread word to others.Infact this is similar for many small festivals too.Being on a boat is totally irrelelvant except for cost.
    Example KIT.they sell the tickets at the festival for the next year.They7 sell about 85% of those tickets at the festival.Tickets for the festival are like gold dust.

    I think if Andy wants a bigger boat he will have to up his game a bit.He can let it ride on how it usually does but i can see for next year some bigger announces thrown out there early to meet sales predicitions for a bigger ship.
