    I would think that if - oh fuck it, there's no logic here.


    :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Yeah, I'm pretty much over the "hoping for Amon Amarth" train. If it happens, awesome!; if not, well, I've still got a lot to look forward to on the boat....Manegarm included.

    UMC are trolling hard on Facebook, actually responding to people who are guessing that it's AA next.
    I almost think we might get them. But not announced until Feb. 1.

    Turning up the heat would produce ash. Could mean Ashes to Ares. Would love to have Barlow on the boat. Given we already have the drummer (Van Williams) from Ghost Ship, could be.


    Or Ash Borer, which would also be pretty awesome.

    Good selection. I saw Manegarm at their first North American appearance (I think) in 2007 at Heathen Crusade II. I really enjoyed them.

    The recent "We're turning up the heat now" clue seems like they're hinting at Amon Amarth but watch them book some crap like Arsonists Get All The Girls.

    There better be an "H" for HYPOCRISY coming in the next 9 announcements... or I'm going to watch Pain on the boat and probably not be able to shake the feeling that I wish I were watching Hypocrisy instead.

    It's been 12 years since I last saw Hypocrisy live. That's 12 years too long.

    I'd prefer Ereb Altor of the Swedish Viking era Bathory style bands, but Månegarm is a solid add anyhow. Can't really find anything similar between them and Amon Amarth though, and to me that is a good thing. And while we're on the subject of Amon Amarth, I really, really hope they won't be onbroad. I don't hate the band or anything, but their music is just so damn dull. And their diehard fanbase is starting to be just as lovely as Slayer 's. :beerwink:

    As for the A band, Anaal Nathrakh would be cool. If the "turn up the heat" is a clue, "Anneke van Giersbergen's Vuur" (vuur is fire in Dutch) would be ridiculously awesome - even if the band just announced that their first show ever will be in the Netherlands in June. Ade could burn Carthago on their shows (latest album is called "Carthago delenda est").

    I really hope they get announced, which will rule them out for 2018 and free up a headliner slot for someone I haven't already seen 4 times.

    Haha, I hope Andy's saving them for 2018, since it's highly unlikely that I'll be going then. Going to San Diego in November for the Craft Beer Week, so probably won't have enough vacation days for 70k.

    It seems like a bit of stretch to me. As much as I'd like to see them, as I'm a huge Barlow fan, they seem to be pretty inactive. The last "news" on their website is from August 2015.

    Manegarm is another really solid late add.

    - this - If I was him, - everyone expected it early - defy them. - everyone now expects it last - defy them

    If he does this, - no-one will ever have any idea in future if the big bands have come, or are going to be added at the end, or at any point in between. Every band announcement could potentially be a BIGGY - I think it would be a stroke of absolute Genuis.

    the ethos will become that "ANY band can drop at ANY time". People will be waiting with baited breath through every announcement ( much like now) - & I think it would boost ticket sales for later years because people will have the confidence that the lineup will take shape over time & will not disappoint. - If this does happen, I think it's clear they're playing the long game.

    More to the point, - I have to admit that i'm not really familiar with them AT ALL, - so today at work, - I'm going to Spotify up & see what all the hype is about, - I'll let you know my thoughts later.

    - Peace out -

    P.S. - I'm still waiting for spineshank to be announced.....

    I think a lot of people here would enjoy ABR much more than they would like to admit. They always put on a fantastic show and JB is a criminally underrated guitarist.

    That being said, they're on tour during the cruise.

    I can't understand why this band has become so huge. And I have come to fucking loathe them, because some awesome bands I love have ended up opening for them, instead of doing their own tours...paid a full show just to see Testament opening a few months ago (Testament were awesome, I left just after their show), going to miss Dark Tranquillity for the same reason.

    You hate Amon Amarth because they give quality acts the opportunity to perform to a bigger crowd and hopefully grow their own audience as a result? These bands are choosing to open for Amon Amarth, rather than doing their own tours, because it's better for them in both the short and long term. If you wish to direct your anger at bands for the openers they choose, why not direct it at Iron Maiden for taking out Bullet for my Valentine, Judas Priest for taking Five Finger Death Punch or Metallica for taking out Baby Metal? These legendary acts could be passing the torch and are instead choosing to merely add a few more dollars to bank accounts they'll never exhaust, by ceding to corporate interests.

    Well, I have the habit of overstating things :D
    I don't literally "fucking loathe" them, just that seeing bands that could tour by themselves having to open for them, when they are 10 times better than AA, is starting to piss me off. Obviously, Amon Amarth is a big deal at the moment, and opening for them is a very safe choice that allows to play in front of lager crowds, and minimize financial risks. And Dark Tranquillity and Testament, selling-wise, can't compare to AA at the moment.
    But this doesn't change the fact that some of my favorite bands have to take opening slots for the same band, which I've always found bland as hell - and it's not like I didn't try before, especially live. It's like having to pay 50€ for one glass of Westmalle Tripel, but only if you drink four pints of Coors Light later.

    At least we can agree on the second part of your post.

    Yup. Bigger bands that can choose their openers will do what they can for the guys they think deserve a boost. I think I heard it was Blind Guardian and a few others that always pick which bands they want to tour with, which gives the other bands a MAJOR chance to shine. Gotta respect them for that. I've been to SO MANY shows where I like one of the support bands more than the main attraction, but if not for the main attraction I probably wouldn't have gotten to see the band otherwise.

    Someone did say that Amon Amarth fans as a whole are not the best to be on a boat with, and yeah that's in some ways true. That'll happen for most main stream metal bands, which I think it's probably safe to say AA is at this point. That may, if Amon Amarth is locked in for this year (I'm thinking that it's not the case with every passing announcement), be the reason he's been holding off announcing them. He doesn't want to draw their not-so-great fans onto a boat where family is the #1 reason people book.

    That is a very good point. A friend ended up getting a broken arm and cheek bone during Amon Amarth's last show in Calgary during a friendly mosh pit we started that turned violently aggressive. Some douchebag decided that it would be cool to suplex him and in turn he ended up missing the rest of the show and had a prolonged stay in the hospital.

    I'm friendly with a band who recently bought on to a Blind Guardian tour. And while I can't speak to how they were selected to be the band who got the chance to buy on to the tour, I can say that BG was very cool to them. In fact, Hansi pulled their singer aside a few times during the tour and offered his advice on how she could better approach things as a front person. I always thought that was very cool, as he clearly had no need to do that other than to be a good guy.

    When we organized the stripper busses for Amon Amarth, upon arriving there was a girl being carried out on a stretcher, with what I heard was a broken neck during Skeletonwitch's set and then another leaving with a broken arm and head injury during AA's actual set. They definitely bring the rowdy fans from what I've experienced.
    With that said, that is why I love this boat and still continue to come for all the family that I get to see each year!

    It didn't help that I'm sure that show was TERRIBLY overbooked. We were on the second floor and looking down there wasn't room for a hair between people down there.

    Think the worst shows I've been to were some of the local shows when I lived in New Orleans. Some of the NO bands just attract the most violent assholes out there. Here in Tampa coincidentally the most violent show was Eyehategod. Bunch of random suckerpunches and fights

    That was probably one of the worst, if not the worst, shows I've been to. The venue was indeed absolutely overcrowded, it was fucking insane - and not in a good way. My friends and I were also on the second floor and we couldn't move, or even talk to each other. We couldn't even watch the show properly. I can't even think how it felt down in the pit.

    The douchier folks tend to be younger and poorer. It seems highly unlikely that a significant number of them are going to pay a couple grand, take time off work and travel for a band that tours with great frequency. Plus, environment plays a role. The vibe of the boat seems to weed out those folks.

My friends and I were also on the second floor and we couldn't move, or even talk to each other. We couldn't even watch the show properly. I can't even think how it felt down in the pit.


    Yea that one is definitely up there for us. It was soo damn crowded it wasn't worth the trouble to try and get a drink. Show felt like a fucking sauna


    I agree. I politely forced my way to a spot where I could barely watch Skeletonwitch and then got the fuck out of there and hung out outside with friends. I think the venue got away with overselling tickets because they had an extra back bar area (separate from the main hall where the show was) which gave them extra capacity even though hardly anybody was back there because we all wanted to watch the show.

    I don't like going to huge shows anymore for this reason. I haven't been onbroad since 2012, but at that time people were well behaved towards each other and calm. Hopefully still the case, and hopefully people encourage each other to behave if people start to get too aggressive. I enjoy moshing, but I also try hard to minimize collateral damage to people who are trying to stay out of the pit.

    Finally been making progress listening more to bands that will be on this year I was unfamiliar with. Dug Stam1na way more than I was expecting!
