    Is there a time limit for the songs we chose? I mean, can we go into the double digits for the minutes?

    Don't really care what songs they'll play, but this just might be my first time watching the jam (if it's a non-smoking venue this time).

    OK, so we're certainly not getting any announcements till 2015. They're not going to overlap the voting with announcements.

    Despite the fact I think is great to have multiple things to do at the boat other than the gigs: All-Star Jam, Karaoke, Paintings, etc, I don´t have an once of excitment to watch covers from ACDC, Alice in Chains, Metallica, Deep Purple, Ozzy, etc...

    All I care are the Bands and Gigs :shred:

    I really can understant the reason behind not annoucing bands at this point, if they have bands "booked" under their sleeves(like Undivided Multitude, f. ex).

    To generate new interest you need big annoucements(multiples bands or well known bands). For americans it is easier to make a last minute decision to buy the tickets and embark at this awesome expirience. For non americans it is another ball game. Intl airfare, Hotels, VISA(some nationalities). Maybe UMC doesn´t care about "new interest" from the single fan, I really dont know how much business comes from us(the Old Fans) and how much business comes from travel agencies.

    Never heard the parody but the original actually has quite a cool/creative guitar solo (if you're into that kinda thing) :shred:
    So far at least, 2011, 2012 & 2015 were enough for me

    Just throwing this out there again.

    22 days to go, 23 bands to announce.

    This time last year there were 16 bands left to announce.

    Tell me again how this is different to last year? :roll: :P :lol: :cry:

    So what is the big one? Savatage? Because if Andy pulled that motherfucker off, all will be forgiven once again.

    To which I also point at Wacken's website, which lists Savatage as a "European Exlusive" rather than a "Reunion Show".

    If he did indeed manage to get the Mountain King himself on the boat, in WHATEVER guise (TSO, JOP, Savatage)....

    Too much to wish for!

    IMO it already happened Andy wrote this for Vemon : Since it's been a long time that I have not heard from our Scouting Parties, I think it's about high time to call in and check what great news they have for us! To start things off, I called our Scouting Party in the UK. They bring us very Special News from Newcastle:

    The legendary VENOM will play an Exclusive Live World Premiere of their Forthcoming Album as one of their two shows onbroad 70000TONS OF METAL 2015!

    That's right, only onbroad 70000TONS OF METAL 2015, The Original, The World's Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise will you experience VENOM play their new album in it's entirety, before anyone else in the world has heard it. But that's not all... for you die hard VENOM fans there is more to come!

    Considering there are 37 bands announced I reckon it is much better than last year irrespective of the total number this time. The extra 20 bands is a bonus. My thoughts anyway........ :cheers:

    To which I also point at Wacken's website, which lists Savatage as a "European Exlusive" rather than a "Reunion Show".

    IMO it already happened Andy wrote this for Vemon : Since it's been a long time that I have not heard from our Scouting Parties, I think it's about high time to call in and check what great news they have for us! To start things off, I called our Scouting Party in the UK. They bring us very Special News from Newcastle:

    The legendary VENOM will play an Exclusive Live World Premiere of their Forthcoming Album as one of their two shows onbroad 70000TONS OF METAL 2015!

    That's right, only onbroad 70000TONS OF METAL 2015, The Original, The World's Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise will you experience VENOM play their new album in it's entirety, before anyone else in the world has heard it. But that's not all... for you die hard VENOM fans there is more to come!


    I may just be ignorant, but I don't see the connection to Savatage there. And trust me, I really wish I did.

    What I am saying is ;the big announcement was that Venom is debuting their album on 70k.It already happened so no need to guess what it is.Savatage isn't going to happen, why speculate on the big announcement when it already happened.Personally I don't care about Venom and it means nothing to me but it probably was the big announcement .

    I sure hope not, if THAT was his trump card and he was forced to drop it back then, he's got squat and is doomed. Well, we'll have fun, but if it's a big disaster and he can't manage to come up with at least 5 decent fairly known bands out of the last 23, with the new boats that are starting to come up, it may be the end of Andy.

    No way would Venom be the 'big thing' he was talking about.

    They are a repeat for starters, and secondly if you are not into black metal, then you don't give two hoots about that announcement.

    What I mean is the special surprise he will "really drag out". That, by definition, has to come later. He blew his Venom load relatively early for it to be that.

    He did drag it out ,the scouting party was by that bridge for weeks before he made it official but it totally gave it away with the clue.Dragging it out doesn't mean announcing it close to the cruise date.

    Yeah still fairly sure Venom wasn't the 'big thing'. Not that I REALLY think there is going to be a big thing - just more bluff and bluster from the skipper.

    Not really expecting much now for the next few days - only once have us Aussies awoken New Year's day to an announcement, and that was Orphaned Land and Crowbar for the 2012 cruise.

    Aside from that, the earliest January announcement has been the 5th. So the pessimist in me says we won't get another band until Monday next week.

    2013 i booked for Doro alone. This year i went early with his first lot of announcements, they turned out to be his 'headliners'.

    It looks like Blind Guardian is his 'headliner' next year unless he pulls the proverbial outta his ass.

    Where is the eighties band with mainstream success,Saxon ,Metal Church ,Overkill or Lizzy Borden?Or a girlie band ,Delain ,Nightwish ,WT,Epica or Lacuna Coil?The cruise has lost some of what I liked (diversity ) and gained what I dislike (just another festival ,with bands that come to America anyway ).

    Indeed. He needs some 'star' power. Cris Scabbia has it. Same with Doro. Lizzie and Biff, Bobby. They're all legends.

    If he pulled something out like Anthrax he'd outdo himself.

    And for what it's worth my main reason for initially booking was for bands that never come to Upside Down Land or once every few years.

    For this reason, it probably isn't a band because I don't think there's a single band that will get everyone excited. The way he kept talking about it in interviews makes it seem like it's something for everyone.
