    Imperial Triumphant (a great idea for the boat), Cloak, and Couch Slvt ruled out. Touring East Coast US

    Not that I think there were requests for them, but smaller NA bands have a habit of filling out the back half of the roster

    Is this more because you think they wouldn't get the ask at all without the UTA crowd to fill up the First Fragment sets or moreso that it's likely they're being saved for when UTA says yes again so Andy can kill two birds with one stone?

    INGLORIOUS have announced they are going on indefinite hiatus so they are out.

    (not a huge one, but there have been a couple of requests for them, so felt it was worth calling out)

    They're a fun band, but would seem out of place on 70K. They've been on MORC a couple times.

    Too bad about UADA. One solution top cancel culture is there are 60+ shows to attend on the cruise. Impossible to attend every show. If you are the type of person that takes definitive sides, biased or simply not a fan of the band, chose another option during than timeslot. There is basically 4 venues running with overlapping schedules.

    They definitely were invited. Friend reached out to them directly and they responded that the rescindment was last month, they decided to announce yesterday to expose the irony, essentially rubbing 70K's nose in it. Which makes the Vektor signing, announcing and subsequent removal even more vexing, assuming they gleaned knowledge that Uada might stir controversy via the internets or some such.

    No matter what, and this is just my opinion, I can't help if it pisses off others, others voices may be louder than my own, I'm green to social media as it is, we have 70k again, I've missed every other, so despite whatever those do on those social media plarforms or the internet it doesn't matter, we're still here and gonna continue strong. It's whatever, we're gonna have the time of of our lives regardless, so let's all just move forward with the horns up. That's my opinion on it, if I'm wrong I can admit it, but we need not worry. All is well and I'll see you all soon.

    What is it with Uada? some article years ago? I really would love to see them on the boat!
    Well, i dont know about all the things that happen now....
    I guess if you research a lot you find a lot. Maybe a lot cruisers wouldnt be allowed on boat also?
    Where do you start where does it end?
    Remember those days, when black and death was heavily polarising and all black wearing people were devils servants? When you had to defend yourself for wearing a metal shirt? Because "all are criminals and satanists". Isnt it leading in the wrong direction a little bit...?

    I can agree with that. Does me wearing black at all times make me a bad person? Nein. But folks who doesn't know or doesn't care to try and understand use labels, they do, thats just what it is and wont change over night. No labels with me, doom, Satanist, whatever, it doesn't matter. Want to know, just ask. But it is what it is. I don't care, 70ks coming and I'm excited as hell. But if people are uncomfortable then it takes away from the ascetics and it takes away from those who have been there before and no one can knock that. Once again just my opinion and can wear it if I'm wrong.

    One of the biggest issue with UADA is they could very easily combat the very likely false claims that they're Nazis (heck, they have a Jewish member). They never explicitly say "We are not Nazis, nor do we support them" but instead they use the same anti-hate statements that hate groups and their supporters use when ever they come under fire. Pair that with the fact that they both lambast NSBM bands as well as share the stage with them, a lot of us are left in the void of "I'm pretty sure they're not nazi, but they're not exactly convincing me"

    With the short window between now and sailing, I don't blame Andy for not seeing a definitive answer and just going with the safe route.

    I hope for the future that this means Andy is going to do some thorough vetting because almost every band gets a negative article written about themselves at some points. Sometimes it's valid, sometimes it's just a journalist who got pissy that the band declined an interview.

    To loop back to the forum topic, I think we can rule out any band that has had a controversy (no matter how big or small) in the past few years. Not because they're necessarily deserving of being kicked, but because of how short of a window we're looking at.

    Right, I understand that fully, there's always going to be someone out there saying something, one way or the other on bands, but with it being how it is now no one is blamed for pulling any band, it's just not how it use to be in that sense. I appreciate you for responding on the subject. May we all just have a good time is what I think.

    Then we can rule out Watain and Behemoth; both have had controversial articles posted about them on MetalSucks.

    Annihilator I think can be safely eliminated from the cruise.

    If John was going to be on board, he would be hosting the All-Star jam, not Alexander Krull

    (not a huge one, but there have been a couple of requests for them, so felt it was worth calling out)
    OK, so in the process of trying to figure out set counts for Rank Bank, I just realized that Nathan James sang for Uli Jon Roth on his Scorpions Revisited album. A Scorpions set with Nathan James would be a must see for me.

    Taake's Australian tour is cancelled so I guess that they are not ruled out for the next sailing anymore.

    But given WHY Taake's Australian tour is cancelled I'd guess they ARE still ruled out :P

    It's similar to the UADA situation. But I think there is slightly more validity to the claims with Taake.

    Their vocalist has a long history of using bigoted/racially charged/nazi statements, phrases, and imagery all under the guise of "art" and "evoking a response" which in my opinion are just cop outs for actually being scummy.

    It's well within a promoter's purview to decide to not be associated with stuff like that.

    Just like it's well within a promoter's purview to not work with artists who even carry the accusations of domestic violence nor artists who repeatedly share the stage with NSBM bands.

    Actions speak louder than words and based on the actions of all 3 bands, I never want to see any of them on the bill of a festival I plan on attending.
