    Yes I agree with you. Bigger boat and 60bands really sound astonishing and still is for one side, but for the other ... So with dollar increase and non communications, i won't go there next year.

    The dollar tendency is yet another reason for which Andy should have been especially careful to keep the customers satisfied these months. Next year for us europeans (and aussies etc) it's gonna be much more expensive to make it to the cruise and UMC's not doing everything they can to conquer our hearts. So yeah, another reason that makes his behavior absolutely incomprehensible.

    I think he will anounce a big name next week or 1day before departure, and people will book like crazies next year thinking he will have another big name.

    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.

    That wouldn't be cool at all. Like you said- I want time to get to know some of the bands I haven't heard before.

I live in a city that gets metal shows pretty frequently, so I'm not that concerned. Honestly, I was just looking at BG's tour, and wondered what this was. It sounded awesome, so I hopped on board (soon literally) after seeing that past years included a lot of bands I like.

    But so far it's really lacking in the genres of metal that most appeal to me. I mean, seeing the couple of bands I do like, and maybe meeting some people, is still awesome. But it's not delivering what I anticipated. Or maybe it will. Ugh.


    Yeah, same for me. There has always been some must see bands so I figured I should get on this year. I was going to wait on booking to see more of the line up but anything affordable was selling out right away. Waiting on the line up I would still be waiting. Next time if there is not some must see bands announced in the first batch of bands before tickets go on sale I'll never book this cruise again. I'll save my money for more trips to Europe. Still 22 bands though, the guy could turn me around real quick..



    I do think he has something big planned though, a big "fuck you", to all of us.

    For me one "fuck you" has already been said to us, by not answering our shouts, and making another race of non anouncements despite past promises.

    Hopefully the sun will be there !

    So far it's looking like Ft. Lauderdale will be sunny and around 78° F, 25° C on the 21st and 22nd. The date is close enough to be in the weather forecast but we still need 22 bands..

    To be fair, I don't think Andy promised to announce bands more frequently last year. I think what he basically said was that they promise to not go months without any news at all. Which, if you count all the non-announcement posts, they have done this year.

    With that said... it's about TIME FOR ANOTHER ANNOUNCEMENT! :bitch:

    Well, ok, the non-announcements are very upsetting if not more, but I am trying to stay optimist. The last year we were in the same situation with 40 bands and the last announcements were done just the day before the departure, if I'm right - can't remember as I was already in Miami when they were announced :mrgreen: -, but all the bands were on the ship. Well, of course, it stays 22 bands to be announced in 14 days, but in a way or in another, they will be all there.

    That's sure that there's a problem somewhere, but ask yourself a question now, it's the first time with 60 bands and a bigger ship with more fans, how would we manage the change if we were at the Andy's place? We had 4 cruises with 40 bands, it's a huge difference and perhabs Andy has difficulties to manage all changes details :roll: I don't think that it's his wish to upset and make us angry. I am not trying to excuse him, but it's my feeling, even if I also have some difficulties to stand this situation, as all of you.

    Problem or not, I am already very happy with the 38 bands announced, well some of them as they are among my favourite bands and my biggest times will be to have fun with all of you and with all the other activities before, while and after the cruise :deathhorns: All those difficulties wont to make me change of mind for the next years, I will be there, for sure :headbanger:

    He actually said in an interview at Summer Breeze in August, that he PROMISED announcements of bands would and I quote "not drag out like last year" apart from one surprise.

    So yeah, for me at least that is the most annoying thing.

    So if there's 59 bands we get 200 back? Am I reading that correctly?

    Ah, I stand corrected. I was only speaking for what he said on the boat last year, I wasn't aware of that interview.

    The "one surprise" is that the last twenty bands will be announced as we get on broad.

    He did say during the Trollfest announcement that he is a GIANT Troll.

    Typically Andy has a few extra bands. Probably to handle any last minute band cancellations by keeping the lineup with > 60 bands.

    So yeah, for me at least that is the most annoying thing.


    Correct me, if I'm wrong. This is what I understood:
    The announcements will take quite as long as last time, expect one which he is really going to drag out very long.

    For me, I'm actually fine with most of the band and 40 would have been already enough for me. I can't imagine how I can get all bands I want to see in my schedule. Now on 4! Stages at the same time. Remember there are tons to do (and eat) beside the bands.
    Of course I'm also pissed off the way the announcements are made.
    But hey, I'm sure I'll have a great time, just like all of you.
    I thank Andy for make all this possible to us. We are currently starting a small festival and I know how much work it takes.
    Anyway I hope Andy has a good reason for the way he goes and the big surprise is really BIG.

    Call me crazy but I'd be into that. I mean, I've been wanting to go to this thing since the first year, and it has always been 40 bands, so if we say we're still missing 24 bands, maybe he can announce 4 fillers in the next couple of weeks to round it up to the same ammount of bands as previous year, and then for the other 20 just have them set up mistery shows that are announced each morning. Granted, to pull it off they would have to be fairly well known bands at the very least, from different genres that people are more familiar with and who don't mind not being announced in advance because they'll sell merch onbroad for the signing sessions.

    Either way it doesn't seem like we're gonna get any news for now. If Andy wanted to give regular announcements that's what we would've gotten.

    As for the theories that they don't have enough bands and whatnot... would it have made ANY sense to move up to a bigger ship if they didn't already have at least over half the bands they would need to fill it? I mean, they could've just kept doing the Majesty of the Seas and nobody would be complaining about having 38 announcements by the end of December, so why take the risk unless it's no risk at all?

    UMC didn't CHOOSE to move from the Majesty - they had NO CHOICE. They had to move ship because Royal Caribbean were planning to decommission The Majesty of the Seas.

    That fell through in the end, but by that time it was too late, contracts had been signed etc, so 70K couldn't move BACK to Majesty.

    From the ticket contract:
    "The parties agree that the consideration for the entertainment portion of the Cruise including performance by all musicians on board during the Cruise shall be the sum of USD 200.00."

    So even if all bands cancelled, we'd get only $200 back.

    So if there's 59 bands we get 200 back? Am I reading that correctly?


    Yeah, I think you did.

    Well, then not the Majesty specifically, RC has 6 ships in the Vision class which is 80k tons, and another 4 in the Radiance class with 90k tons, so why jump to the Freedom class which is the second biggest class?

    the skipper sux wrote:first interview im doing, is with andy...


    Doubt he'll do interviews the first day after all the drama, he'll wait for people to be a bit happier for the interviews and have some of his "surprises" come out, unless it was to apologize for a screw up, in which case he would've probably already said something, I mean, you can't get refund if you cancel now, so he's got nothing to lose and if the cruise is gonna be less than what he promised he can't afford to have that explode on him like that, it would make sense to save face with an apology and maybe something to try to make up for it (first round of beers on the house or whatever).

    Is this a fucked up way to run a festival? maybe. Have they delivered in previous years? as far as I can tell, yes. Is there reason for concern? sure, there's no way of really knowing what's going on with the rest of the bands, except that we all know the skipper is a troll who likes suspense and doesn't seem to get bothered by people ranting at him. Myself, being my first time (FINALLY), I just plan to enjoy the fuck out of this event.

    4th Stage = 20 Extra Bands

    by Andy » Thu Jan 08, 2015 7:28 pm

    Round 5 of 70000TONS OF METAL, The Original, The World's Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise is just around the corner and as you know we will have a 4th stage this year on our way to Jamaica! That means 20 extra bands this year! As a tradition we always had a few newer or lesser known bands onbroad and our Survivors even created the CRIPPER AWARD for the best new band discovery. Since 70000TONS OF METAL is a truly global affair, I will make sure that there are bands from many different countries! Let's start with the first 4 global candidates. Please welcome: JUNGLE ROT from Wisconsin, ABANDON HOPE from Germany, DIVIDED MULTITUDE from Norway and as a special treat one of the most legendary South American Death Metal Bands: MASACRE from Colombia!
