    We're two weeks away and there's still nothing that wants to make me book.

    That's not good, right?

    See you all in 2016 ;-)

    This worries me. "Lesser known bands" and "the first 4 global candidates" in one paragraph.

    Makes me suspect this is the best we can hope for. I mean no offense to those artists already booked, but I was under the impression that we were waiting for some big name announcements, not 20 bands most have never heard of.

    But maybe I'm just being paranoid? After this announcement I'm less sure that I spent my money wisely :(

    Hey Statsman, I think his big announcement is heading more up your alley than mine but I could be wrong seeing how brutal this cruise is turning out

    I expect most of the remaining bands are of the lesser known variety. Unless we get a huge surprise, most, if not all of the well known bands are announced at this point.

    I just hope I get enough time to check them all out before we sail.
    I should get around to updating my signature

    The Prog Nation cruise I saled on last February had the entire "main line-up" announced fairly early in advance of the cruise and then later in the game, Portnoy handpicked 20 or so not so well known bands (however the few I saw were awesome!!) who played the quote "fourth stage." I suspect that the bulk of the rest of the 70K announcements will be similar.

    Basically what he is saying is that he believes the something special that was really going to be dragged out, that Andy was referring to in that interview at Summer Breeze, was the Venom world-premiere-of-their-new-album announcement.

    And I think he could be right - because we had to wait 2 months between band announcements for that one.

    BUT deathmetalpat - do NOT forget that Andy said in the New Year greeting that there would be "exciting news to share" so that could mean drinks packages, special performances, anything.

    HOWEVER, I'm kinda with others in thinking that the tone of this last announcement sorta indicates that the remaining bands are all going to be filler.

    His big announcement statement refered to a band that has never been on the cruise because they where in the studio or on tour.
    so this does not include Venom seeing they played BTH

    We are talking about the video , http://m.youtube.com/?rdm=195bx761h&cli ... 4xquixyk4Q just "he was going to stretch it out ",I think the written interview you are referring to and Arch Enemy is that band.

    The reference to "Lesser known bands" and "the first 4 global candidates" is only for potential Cripper award candidate bands only. He also states that there is normally a few lesser known or new bands.

    I reckon there will be some good surprises ahead!!! And some more Power and Symphonic metal !!!

    Can we even class Jungle Rot, Divided Multitude and Masacre as Cripper Award candidates as they have 7, 5 & 5 albums out respectively. I thought a Cripper Award can only go to bands with a maximum of 3 albums out???

    I agree, Jungle Rot have been around for 20 years and Masacre are even older if I am thinking of the right band

    Mr.Kito wrote:So we have Sonata Arctica, Divided Multitude, The Holy Ship Clue, Troll Clue (probably trollfest) and the Hamburg band yet to be announced or am I missing any other clues?


    Since Andy is finally playing along, lets retrace:

    Going back to September 25th:
    "Last night 70000TONS OF METAL, The Original, The World’s Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise set sail from Helsinki. Due to popular request we left a scouting party behind. They will gather some more Finns to join our line-up before the arctic winter arrives…

    Our course: South-West"

    FINLAND SCOUTING PARTY:
    "arctic" = Sonata Arctica most likely
    "winter" = if this is a clue it could either be At Winter's End, Winterwolf, Wintersun, Winterborn?
    "some more Finns" could mean there's more coming?


    Then we had the Artillery annoucement hinting towards Pretty Maids. And left a Scouting Party in Denmark's side of the Bridge and the Ship continued north of the bridge, dropped a Scouting Party in UK (Newcastle, hinting Venom) and continued East South-East (Hamburg).

    Next Venom is announced and says "Wonder what our other Scouting Parties have to report? Our guys in the UK said they were obviously not done yet, and headed South!" so Scouting Parties here are Finland, Denmark, and UK.

    Then the ship "has been sighted sailing West in the North Sea. We heard rumors that they dropped off another Scouting Party in the beautiful city of Hamburg, Germany last night." So the ship is heading back to England?

    Then Denmark scouts bring Pretty Maids and cross the bridge to Sweden

    Then German scouts get Destruction and the hint goes "All these Scouting Parties (UK, Sweden, Finland, Germany by now), but where did the Holy Ship end up?"

    UK SCOUTING PARTY
    "Holy Ship" = so if it was going West towards england, then maybe it's going to pick up the UK scouts and the word Holy could maybe refer to Holy Rage, Al Atkins' band?


    Then the Swedish scouts split, and half go to Oslo for 1349 saying "Surely the Norwegian Scouts aren't done yet, or are they?" and hinting for:

    NORWEGIAN SCOUTING PARTY
    "Undivided" = Divided Multitude
    "Troll" = most likely Trollfest
    and maybe "Metal" = no Norwegian band with the word "Metal" in their name comes to mind.


    And while there is still talk of Gamma Ray on account of the German Scouting Party, we have no more clues from them, and we still have no clues for the Swedish Scouting Party.
    What am I missing?
    :death:
    Good recap ,Refuge might have covered the German ,you have to go northeast of Hamburg for awhile ,got others right and still waiting on the Finns,correct?

    Jungle Rot is an awesome add, now we still need Entrails ... and Orange Goblin (which is sounding unlikely do to cancelling their North American tour). so I'll take Armored Saint as a replacement.

    Just saying thanks Andy for listening ... 18 more to go :cheers: :beerhorns: :givebeer:

    Classic forumites :lol:

    Bitch for weeks about no bands announced then get 4 at once and the bitching starts within 3 posts. Not saying the latest announcements should please everyone. I have no interest in the 2 I've heard of and no clue about the other 2 but FFS... no wonder Andy gets off on taunting and torturing us. Probably sees us as a bunch of whiny ingrates lol

    2 weeks from right now we'll be out on the open seas having the time of our lives. If the lineup doesn't meet with your expectations, I sincerely feel bad for you and completely agree that this should give you every reason in the world to reconsider returning in the future without some of your fave bands being announced first. But please, try to see your beer stein or kool-aid glass as at least half full and make the best of it.

    For most of us, we already have a killer lineup, we just got 4 bands closer to our complete roster, we have TWENTY more to go that could be anything from something new to discover to an old favourite or bucket list band and we get to throw fists and horns to the wide open skies in less than 336 hours!!!

    Pretty wide range of varying sounds/styles between these 4 adds. Surprised anyone could struggle to find at least SOMETHING to get excited about and imagine themselves enjoying onbroad :?

    I mean, I'm trying to familiarize myself with all 4 now and between Jungle Rot and Abandon Hope alone I'm forced to go to both extremes of my personal range of vocals I typically enjoy (JR being too growly / AH being a bit soft). But I'm diggin' both right now enough to feel pretty sure I'd have fun at either gig if neither conflicted with one I'd ranked higher.

    Just call me a heavymetaloptimist I suppose ;)


    Some cool simple keys at the end of this one... AH Sally
    So far at least, 2011, 2012 & 2015 were enough for me

    I hope we get another german band or two, can't remember who it was but someone was very sure about Gamma Ray at some point. Also the Holy Ship thing ended up being Melechesh, I think, which means another UK band should be pending. I'm guessing we already got all the Norwegian bands by now. And yes, we're still waiting on the Finns and don't forget the Swedish.

    Never heard of these 4 Bands before. After hearing some Songs Divided Multitude is definetely a one-setter, Abandon Hope a 1/2-setter.
    Jungle Rot and Masacre are Pizzabands.
    Well done Andy (and don't say that not very often)......
