    R could have been Running Wild or Rotting Christ
    V could have been Vuur or Voyager
    T could have been Testament (which i really saw coming)

    B won't be Blind Guardian or Behemoth ... unfortunately...

    As 30 Bands were announced i was still confident for the promised surprises...
    The last cruises there was always something i like in the end and it worked out.
    This time i really doubt it - 2 out of 19 is underwhelming.
    I listen to a lot different genres but maybe i focused on too well known bands ;-)

    The past handful of announcements haven't done anything for me. They can make it up if O is for Obsequiae.

    Giving us a "B" clue and then dropping Brujeria is like promising us a "fine cut of meat fresh from the deli" and then slapping us in the face with a paper thin slice of balogne.

    Fuck, Andy. B has such great potential....

    O better be Orden Ogan to make up for this

    I agree 100 % , I had much higher expectations and TRUST also , I only really like 5 of the 50 bands !!!!!! , for 2 set bands !
    The way things were done this year a damper was put on the whole thing !
    For 10 year anniversary had much higher expectations !
    see my rank bank scores I have the lowest scores of bands to see , by my own personal taste !

    Since the last power metal band, 19 announcements ago, we've had:

    Death, Melodeath, Black, Grind, Death, Symphonic(!!), Death, Doom, Thrash, Thrash, Tech-Death, Melodeath, Thrash, Trad, Trad, Thrash, Melodeath, Thrash, Extreme.

    And:

    USA, Israel, The Netherlands, USA, USA, Austria, USA, USA, USA, USA, USA, USA, USA, USA, USA, USA, Canada, USA, USA

    Nothing against the USA bands but where is the variety?

    Bands from ALL OVER THE WORLD fall over themselves wanting to play 70k for the exposure. Instead we get a situation where US bands have clearly been contacted in the last few weeks to play.

    Will we get an apology from the skipper? "it won't happen again"? "Things will be better next time"?

    All well and good but it won't help the internationals that have paid thousands of dollars to get here this time around.

    Sorry to nitpick, but I have to disagree on the GSO classification there.. melodeath with operatic vocals? I’d say they are prog, even borderline power metal. They are a proggier version of Nevermore really.

    If its going to be all american bands can we AT LEAST have something lighter to balance out the extreme?

    Ashes of Ares, Circle II Circle (we've already got zak on broad!), Iced Earth of course, Theocracy(!!!), Symphony X (since we already have Mike Lepond), Seven Kingdoms, Seven Spires.

    For 10 year anniversary had much higher expectations !
    see my rank bank scores I have the lowest scores of bands to see , by my own personal taste !
    The Thing is i try to see it as objective as i can: The last cruises had some 6-8 "bigger" bands, for example:
    2015 we had Blind Guardian, Behemoth, Apocalyptica..
    2016 we had Cradle of Filth, Children of Boom, Iced Earth, Paradise Lost and also Hammerfall
    2017 we had Anthrax, Arch Enemy, Testament and some more
    2018 we had Kreator, Sabaton, Sepultura, Meshuggah...
    2019 Accept, Paradise Lost and Obituary...with Eluveitie and Rage as surprising headliners..at least for me...
    2020 we have....by my opinion just Emperor. thats it. Michael Schenker as a headliner is really a stretch...Devin could be but is also not a big name...venom maybe because they are 2015....

    Don't get me wrong, i like smaller names, totally....but paying THIS much money everybody can and should expect more. much more...i have more than 5 bands i like, but really feel a little bit "bad" i didnt go 2019.

    Also i totally see cowboy71: united nations of metal, bands from all over the world and a lot of genres: not too much this time..

    Also i just don't get why this was not planned waaaay before. health is always more important, it really is, but still it all seems strange (i know it was mentioned before ;-) )

    I caught the Mike Lepond connection as well. Symphony X was nearly ruled out because of Mike being on a Ross the Boss tour shortly after the cruise. Now, he is on board with them... and symphony is an American band that would please many.

    If its going to be all american bands can we AT LEAST have something lighter to balance out the extreme?

    Ashes of Ares, Circle II Circle (we've already got zak on broad!), Iced Earth of course, Theocracy(!!!), Symphony X (since we already have Mike Lepond), Seven Kingdoms, Seven Spires.
    I caught the Mike Lepond connection as well. Symphony X was nearly ruled out because of Mike being on a Ross the Boss tour shortly after the cruise. Now, he is on board with them... and symphony is an American band that would please many.
    Yeah, the only thing that counts in the negative now is that Russell is doing the Monsters of Rock cruise shortly after 70k so may not want to (or contractually be ALLOWED to) do both cruises.

    Since the last power metal band, 19 announcements ago, we've had:

    Death, Melodeath, Black, Grind, Death, Symphonic(!!), Death, Doom, Thrash, Thrash, Tech-Death, Melodeath, Thrash, Trad, Trad, Thrash, Melodeath, Thrash, Extreme.

    And:

    USA, Israel, The Netherlands, USA, USA, Austria, USA, USA, USA, USA, USA, USA, USA, USA, USA, USA, Canada, USA, USA

    Nothing against the USA bands but where is the variety?

    Bands from ALL OVER THE WORLD fall over themselves wanting to play 70k for the exposure. Instead we get a situation where US bands have clearly been contacted in the last few weeks to play.

    Will we get an apology from the skipper? "it won't happen again"? "Things will be better next time"?

    All well and good but it won't help the internationals that have paid thousands of dollars to get here this time around.
    Sorry to nitpick, but I have to disagree on the GSO classification there.. melodeath with operatic vocals? I’d say they are prog, even borderline power metal. They are a proggier version of Nevermore really.
    Yeah all good :) Nitpick away :D You are right, perhaps more Prog. But definitely on the heavier side of the spectrum as opposed to the lighter.
