    Maybe he got us not one, not two, but 22 BIG bands. And by big bangs, i dont mean Dimmu Borgir or Amon Amarth, but legends, like Judas Priest.

    We've got maybe one more hour before the window of opportunity closes for today.

    It's currently about 5.30pm in Vancouver and there have been several band announcements between 5.30pm and 7pm (Melechesh, Threshold, Venom, Grave Digger, Annihilator).

    About the canadian currency: US dollars is not stronger, this is the Canadian dollars that is weaker. Our currency is based on oil price. OPEC is playing with oil price right now and the price is very low for a barrel so canadian is an important exportator and since the price is collapsing for a few mount now our own canadian currency is collapsing.

    ThisOPEC move have a direct impact on canadian, russian and venezuelan economy and currency price. With this move, OPEC is trying to kill the shale oil industry in the US.

    OKAY CRAZY OPTIMIST HERE.

    We have always either had 41 OR 42 bands every cruise.

    Say, for arguments sake we are getting 62 bands this year.

    That would mean we have 24 bands to go.

    We will be down to 2 weeks EXACTLY in about 16 hours.

    SO - Andy is going to give us the final 24 bands, 1 band every hour for 24 hours when the clock hits 14 days to go.

    Or Andy could make history by being the first festival to announce 1/3 of its line-up two full weeks after the festival has ended. We can have mystery Running Orders and all sorts of other chaos onbroad. It would be legendary.

    People are super-friendly onbroad Jimbo so you shouldn't have a problem :)

    Hit up the pre-cruise events - drinks, beach-parties, brutal bash etc. Lots of like-minded individuals there.
    Strike up a conversation with the people lining up around you for check-in "Cool battle jacket! Which band are you most keen to see? Oh, you're IN a band!" etc.

    And yeah - just go with the flow :)

    After the cruise, you might not want pizza for a month. It was so legendarily mediocre on the last boat that you could hardly tell it from greasy cardboard. But damn did it hit the spot at 2:00 a.m.

    I've honestly lost hope that we'll get most of the bands before the cruise. I really think that this time we'll get to know the last 20 bands once we're INSIDE the boat, not a minute before. I guess Andy is like the girls: he just wants to have fun.

    So, my realistic expectation is to get from two to four announcements between today and January 21st, and 20 more once inside the boat. Because fuck us, that's why.

    Also little bit of news from TANK.

    During the cruise there will be an exclusive performance to debut the entire new album to the fans on board as well as a second show of Tank classics from the past 30 years.

    Joining guitarists Mick Tucker and Cliff Evans on the new album will be vocalist and former Dragonforce frontman ZP Theart who has been a member of Tank’s touring line up for the past two years.

    Also new recruits Bobby Schottkowski, formerly of Sodom, and current Blind Guardian member Barend Courbois will be handling drum and bass duties.

    A pessimistic guess:
    On the morning of the embarkation day there'll be an announcement: "We promised you the same passenger to band member ratio as on all previous cruises. Well, we only really sold a bit under 2000 tickets, so you only get 38 bands."

    :P

    No special words to say, except disappointment. I've started to strongly tell my friends who were planning to go "one year" not to go.

    I just pictured something, half a dream, half a real possibility.

    20 bands (more or less) left to announce on the 21st. Then we go to the port in Ft. Lauderdale. We check in and pass the security check. And while we're walking to the gateway to the ship, we find that the corridor has been filled with posters, like the ones that have been used so far to announce the bands, only this time physical and real, announcing the remaining 20 bands. So Andy reveals 40 bands like every other year and the new 20 are announced in a new, different and surprising way.

    Something like this gives me confronted feelings. I find the idea cool and it even gives me chills... except that as I've always said, I want/need time to get familiar with the bands, and I would sure miss something out.

    It would also be a nightmare to get on the boat with people stopping to look at the posters and taking photos etc. of them.

    But that would be an awesome idea! Damn, now I'm hoping we don't get any more announcements before the 22nd. :lol:

    And the 21st band poster would be at the end, and would be the big gun :beerbang:

    That could happen. But, giving that half the people are already pissed off, the bands he announces have to be killer to prevent some poster tearing hahahahahaha

    Andy has let us speculate for several months. He's thrown some clues, some being very obvious (Divided Multitude) and others left for debate (Sonata Arctica, Gamma Ray...). Plus, he's given us time to make some guesses based on bands' schedules (At The Gates...). So, while not 100% confirmed, we can still figure out some of the remaining bands. Besides, I'm sure he'll throw several big names of all genres to make sure this idea more or less satisfies everyone. Which doesn't mean we won't have fillers. Of course there's room for them, too :D

    Just imagine that among the 20 bands you end up finding Divided Multitude, Sonata Arctica, Gamma Ray, At The Gates, Metal Church, Wintersun, Unisonic, Amaranthe, Eluveitie, Kampfar, Moonsorrow and The Sirens, for instance. Who would complain?? Meat for everyone :)

    The problem is the lack of communication.
    Anounce the last bands with posters ? I'm not a fan but why not if the skipper/umc would communicate about it, and they don't.
    Well, for the list, I remind you that last year, all was to say that revamp would be onboard (gap in their schedule), and they weren't on board.
    Come on, many bands must have a week free in january, which doesn't make them on board.
    Anyway, I'm so tired about this stupidity, it's not suspense anymore, it's pure mental illness, and for the next cruise I predict even worse.
