    LOL - can tell you are new around here :lol:

    As others have said, this is classic UMC. Even though its nearly 3 months since the last band got added, we've still got more at this point than we had at the same time last year.

    So we will absolutely get 20 more bands. Just don't expect 20 headliners :P There will be hopefully a few big names (we had bands like Soulfly, Trouble and Anvil in the final 20 this year), maybe a big surprise final announcement like Wintersun, then a bunch of lesser-known bands.

    True, but there are still tons of cabin categories available then last round this time though. It would be pretty smart thinking to throw out some bands in order to capitalize on some of the younger early 20 crowd that looked under the tree and found cash from lazy santas. Now the last chance I feel that most would have to money to book that would.

    Trying to figure out Andy's logic is like trying to understand quantum field theory. We can all make our educated guesses and pretend like we understand, but in reality there are only about 5 people in the world who will ever know what in the hell he's thinking. But don't worry.. as others have said, it somehow miraculously seems to work out in the end.

    Their communication is actually pretty good, in my experience they reply to enquiries in a timely manner and are very friendly and helpful on the phone. As for announcements, they never promised the frequency of announcements, what they do promise is 60 bands and 3000 fans on a cruise ship trip of a lifetime, and they have always delivered. You have a choice to book or not, if you book blindly knowing what to expect, that's not their problem.

    I'd bet it's a bit of both, but one person mentioned awhile back that there's currently very few American bands compared to most years, so the last 20 might contain lots of Americans. We only have Iced Earth, Jag Panzer and Manilla Road so far. I'm sure it won't be a problem either way.

    Last year, we had many late announcements, and a lot of them were from other countries: Northern Ireland, Colombia, Finland etc. Why does Andy not announce, then? No clue. He might be pushing it kind of late with some bands and wanting to make sure everything is 100% ready to go with many of them before the announcement, or he likes the trolling, whatever.

    We'll definitely get the last 10 the week leading up to the cruise.

    Oh and I was totes right about Christmas, lmao.

    Try not to worry too much about this stuff. Last time a headlining Finnish act was announced the day before departing (Wintersun). We usually try not to care anymore about whether they were already contacted months before or the previous week, or about how they got their visas on time. It just happens. We'll have 20 more bands, and I'm pretty sure at this point Andy/UMC already have at least 17 or 18 of them booked - if not all of them.

    Well said.... It's part of the charm and character that is UMC... It's like owning an old Jaguar motorcar...part of it's charm is that it leaks oil and won't start in the rain... it would not be real if it were perfect and boring.

    Are Wintersun actually considered a headlining band these days?
    As for their announcement being that late the word going around on the cruise was that they themselves insisted on being announced that late as part of the contract for playing the cruise.
    As for the cruise yeah there will always be the specified number of bands.Some bands do get announced late and booked late because you do get bands that weren't yet announced pulling out and then Andy having to book bands last min to replace them.It's one of the reasons he's held off with announcments before he's told me.
    Most bands though would have been sorted well in advance to avoid touring conflicts but some bands as far as i know have cancelled playing the cruise upon getting a tour offer at later stages.
    And then of course some bands are being kept secret just on purpose.It's a marketing strategy to some extent.The idea of 'what if one of x list of bands i want to see gets announced last minute'
    A lot of people will book blindly just for fear of missing out on something

    I don't know that for fear of missing something is the reason, other then the cruise as a whole.

    For those that have been a few years, Andy has shown he can put together a great experience as whole. Though that definitely includes the lineup, I think the cruise as a whole delivers far more then just that. He appears to try and give something to everyone (Thrash, Death, Melodic, Power, etc). I, and many others, book knowing only the initial line up. Granted I understand that not everyone can do that (financially as well as the trust Andy on the lineup part) but for the most part 'Booking and trusting Andy on the lineup' has proven to be a very good strategy for having the best Metal vacation one could possibly ask for.

    Hopefully the recent Twitter activity might mean we're getting something pretty soon. It says "they're coming ;)" in response to someone asking about the next announcements.

    Maybe we'll get some New Year's eve hopefully.

    We got Melechesh New Year's Eve this year so its not without precedence, but as we all know its pointless trying to guess what Andy is up to :lol: :roll:

    Straight from the band:

    The past few days have been really hectic but interesting.
    Early last year Wintersun had been discussing about the possibility of doing the 70000 Tons of Metal but we hadn’t heard anything about it in several months and it was never confirmed by us nor the promoter so we were already sure it’s not going to happen.

    Then surprisingly on last Saturday we learned that we’d have a chance to do it but needed a fast decision. So we had some discussions over the phone with the guys and our manager, and tried to work out the details.
    Kai had just been in Helsinki with Nightwish on Saturday and on Sunday he was on a train back home to Vaasa when we got the confimation to do the shows. So he came back to Helsinki on Monday and we rehearsed for two days while also trying to sort out loads of other stuff and make preparations for the trip.

    On Wednesday we flew out to New York and almost even missed our connection flight to Miami because of some bad luck and the amount of gear we travel with. Made it to the departure gate at the last minute. After 20 hours of traveling we and the gear arrived in Miami in one piece so now there is finally a chance for a bit of relaxing and getting some decent sleep before boarding the ship tomorrow. I think the cruise is going to be fun!


    So it looks like they were initially asked if they were interested ages before the cruise.

    Then months of silence from Andy *GASP* *SHOCK!* *HORROR* HOW UNEXPECTED!

    Then they were asked with 5 days to go if they would do it.

    Very UMC-Style. Actually I might be wrong here but I think some people claimed to see Jari in Miami before the band was announced.

    Since the cruise isn't sold out yet maybe they are aiming for bands with the most members, so Eluveitie fits :lol:

    How About Some NWOFM Onbroad?

    by Andy » Tue Dec 29, 2015 4:34 pm

    You didn't really think we let this year end without giving you some more goodies, did you? So let's get this next round started by welcoming some New Wave Of Folk Metal onbroad 70000TONS OF METAL! Please welcome ELUVEITIE onbroad The Original, The World's Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise!

    If you are playing the guessing game you will like this one: Some of you would probably say that the next three are potential Cripper Award candidates. All three are from a different genre and all three come from different countries. One from Switzerland, one from Germany and one from Sweden.

    Nice addition :)

    Not as nice as it could have been as they've already announced an Australian tour for next year, but still a two setter!
