    Cripper Award was retired because we can't have nice things. We made the process too formal and Facebook got involved and we all know that Facebook ruins everything.

    My vote would go to Aeternam if they are unknown enough to qualify.
    I should get around to updating my signature

    If we bring it back, we'll have to make sure it's NOT advertised this time. Maybe send Andy a note when it's all over.

    That being said, before the last wave of announcements, I did briefly look at the candidates. Aeternam were just over the cut for previous years, and because they were basically hand picked by the forum, I think bodomdragon was saying they're probably a little over qualified this year.

    If we do it, my vote 100% goes to Gyze. Amazing dudes, very talented, SO happy to be on the boat. Like, SO SO happy.

    I wouldn't say that Aeternam were overqualified. Just because they became a forum favorite doesn't mean they are a bigger band. Even then just how many cruisers use the forum, let alone even know it exists? Case in point I personally didn't discover the forum until after my 2nd cruise. Besides, the vocalist for Aeternam announced during their second set that 70k was literally their very first international performance.

    Alas, if Aeternam is disqualified my vote is also 100% for Gyze.

    Two things - first, the award is given by people ON the forums. This is where the official voting happens. Yes we're a smaller subset of cruisers, but we do spread the word, quote avidly, and Andy does promote us multiple times a year.

    But second, that's not the reason they're over qualified. The reason is in previous years the cutoff for Cripper was less than 10,000 last.fm listeners. Aeternam has more than that (not many more, but more). That was more my point.

    Jesus fucking Christ. I seriously think I got a boner, two boners actually, with the In Mourning sets. Out of this world, and definitely among the top 5 performances this year, along with Aeternam. This being seid, they certainly don't qualify as Cripper contenders...

    I'll try to find the list of candidates we came up with and probably add some of the last minute additions. *Spoiler alert* my vote will be for Seven Spires for sure, although Witherfall's performance was also terrific.

    Ok so I checked and here's what I came up with. These are the candidates I'd go for:

    Evertale - 2,397 last.fm listeners
    Gyze - 3,722 last.fm listeners
    Internal Bleeding - 8,509 last.fm listeners
    Majestic Downfall - 2,858 listeners
    Seven Kingdoms - 8,646 listeners
    Seven Spires - 553 last.fm listeners
    Witherfall - 1,428 last.fm listeners

    I am having serious doubts about Diablo Blvd. In terms of listeners they are over 10 thousand but I'm quite sure that at least 90% of them come from the same (small) country. I'd be open to adding them.

    And as Phoenix said I'd totally leave Aeternam out of this, no matter how much I loved their two sets, because this was a heavily requested band among the users who will end up voting in the poll, not making them a suitable candidate as they're not really a previously-unknown-to-the-voters band.

    Unless there are some major disagreements with this I'll take my old role as one of the three organizers (although to be brutally honest I never did much) and start a poll in the next 24 hours.

    If they had qualified for it, then Aeternam. They were superb.

    Since not, then Seven Spires. Really impressed by their professionalism at such young ages.

    I was definitely impressed b Seven Spires professionalism, even if they're not my thing. Gyze were just so very talented and so happy to see fans, I heard stories of people making them stop taking photos and signing autographs so they could eat their meals.

    I feel like we should send Aeternam some sort of thank you message on Facebook. It was absolutely our doing that they were booked, and we did NOT make a mistake. They may not qualify for Cripper but I want them to know how big a splash they made on the international stage.

    My vote goes to Aeternam if possible (I really don't understand the whole band qualifying process).

    Damn, those guys are so good! I met Karhu L'ours Polaire (guitar player) at the Alhambra before the Korpiklaani set (around 9pm). As soon as I recognized him I showed him my running order selection and told him I wasn't sure if I would make it to the pool deck set. Then he told me if I managed to make it, I would be a "true warrior" ... well guess who showed up at the pool deck at 5 am? :beerbang:

    Absolutely has to be Evertale for me, they were just fucking amazing.
    I don't think they really have a chance to win the Cripper Award (being German Power Metal and all) but I'm sure they did make quite some new fans on the cruise.

    This makes me sad I missed this year, Ruin of Empires was such a good record. I'm glad to hear Aeternam crushed live, though.

    Crushed is an understatement. The sound, the setlists, the attitude, the skills, and finishing the last set while the sun was rising next to us.... everything was too fucking legendary. I was excruciatingly tired and needed my bed badly, but hell, it was worth it.

    I've made up my mind that I'm going again next year. I was going to take 3 years off for school but fuck it, I can miss a week. Even if Aeternam won't be there.

    I'm torn between Aeternam and Gyze. Both put on absolutely incredible shows, Gyze at the Pyramid and Aeternam at the pool deck at sunrise. I'd probably lean a bit towards Gyze because they were a complete unknown to me coming in...so an amazing surprise.

    Helps that I had a chance to meet members of both bands walking around the boat, and they were remarkably nice and humble guys. Told the Aeternam dudes that I had all their albums, and they must have thanked me at least 10 times for it. lol

    CRIPPER AWARD 2018 - VOTE NOW

    by bodomdragon » Thu Feb 08, 2018 2:04 am

    Hi everyone,

    So once again, the Cripper Award is here!

    As usual, the candidates are those bands who were unknown to most of us before they were announced. In general terms, those are the bands with less than 10,000 listeners on last.fm. An exception has been done with Diablo Blvd, as they have a little more than 10,000 listeners but the vast majority are from Belgium.

    Voting is open for one week, until Thursday 15th 4:00AM CT (Cruise Time :D)

    PS. I would appreciate it if a moderator could make this post sticky, permanent, or whatever it is called.

    This has been explained before, but here it goes again:

    First: this band was pretty much hand picked by us users in the forum. We started requesting it heavily, Andy heard us, and then they were announced. The same group of users that requested the band are now the ones voting for the best unknown (Cripper) band. Can you see the paradox?

    Second: the general rule of thumb (yes, there are exceptions) is that it has to be bands with less than 10,000 listeners in last.fm. They are above that.

    The first point would be enough for me to rule them out. The second one only reinforces this position.

    PS. Just to make it very clear, I FUCKING LOVED both shows from Aeternam, I stayed there till sunrise and that's one of the most memorable moments for me in the cruise. This is nothing personal, on the contrary :)

    I wish I could vote for more than one, because I was REALLY impressed by Majestic Downfall, but GYZE still has to take it

    Almost 30,000 last.fm listeners, 3 times the usual threshold / reference, and many more Facebook fans (18K) than other contenders such as Gyze (10K), Evertale (6K) or Seven Spires (8K). They would have been a more or less reasonable contender, but the line has to be drawn at some point.

    I'm surprised to see Internal Bleeding on here, they kind of pioneered a subgenre.

    "Okay, when I turn the lights off, THEN you start playing." --soundboard op to Gyze before their Pyramid show :lol:

    I feel like we should send Aeternam some sort of thank you message on Facebook. It was absolutely our doing that they were booked, and we did NOT make a mistake. They may not qualify for Cripper but I want them to know how big a splash they made on the international stage.


    Agreed. When I met them at their meet'n'greet I mentioned I was on the 70K Forum and had been one of the ones really supporting them here, and they were all incredibly thankful. Both shows were easily high points of my cruise.
