This is a "Floating Heavy Metal Festival" on a cruise ship that will be leaving from Florida and going to Cozumel, Mexico in January of 2011. The promoters promise that 40 (!) heavy metal bands will be performing live on the ship during the cruise. The first 8 bands that have been confirmed are:

 

AMON AMARTH

EPICA

SODOM

SONATA ARCTICA

STRATOVARIUS

TROUBLE

ULI JON ROTH (!)

WITCHBURNER

 

'Tain't cheap tho... cabins start at $866 (!) and go up from there... :yikes:

 

Sounds like it would be sweet as hell though!!!

Whoa! This sounds amazing! Only chance is if there are any competitions to win tickets. Amon Amarth, Trouble, Florida and Mexico ... it doesn't get much better than that! What an unbelievable holiday this would be. I can dream I suppose.

My wife just said she wanted to go on a cruise again...hum the wheels are turning. I would love to see SODOM.

 

If you pull this off, I will bow to you in person :bowdown:

 

Ditto, but surely we'll then have to beat him to a bloody pulp in sheer jealousy?

 

:chainsaw:

    • His music videos are always good: either very silly, or very sexy. So I've got this queued up on the PC. Looking forward to it. 
    • New single "The Animal" dropped today, not bad at all:    
    • I dig the new tune!  Honestly, might be my favorite yet from these guys. I like that this kind of gets away from the  Bon Jovi Country vibe they sometimes had on the debut.  For me, this has a fresh, big sound to it.   Will have the new one on my radar.
    • 3rd single... Love It   
    • New video for 'Dance'.    
    • Vandenberg - Sin Chicago - The Chicago Story (2 CD) Megadeth - So Far, So Good, So What? (Expanded) The Allman Betts Band - Down to the River Mike Oldfield - Five Miles Out (Remaster) Buckingham & McVie - S/T Michael Hutchence - S/T Roxy Music - Stranded (Remaster) Echo & the Bunnymen - Reverberation  Echo & the Bunnymen - Evergreen (Expanded)
    • After releasing two albums with AOR/Melodic Rock band Streets, ”1st” (1983) and ”Crimes In Mind” (1985), lead singer and keyboardist Steve Walsh returned to Kansas, to revive the band along with original members Phil Ehart (drums) and Rich Williams (Guitar). Furthermore, the lineup was completed by the addition of bassist Billy Greer (from Streets) and young, promising, former Dixie Dregs guitar man Steve Morse, who also contributed with composing skills and backing vocals. Eventually, the group’s ”Power” album was released in November of 1986, rather much to the vintage Kansas and Prog Rock purists dismissal, as I recall it. The heavier sound/direction and absence of violinist Robby Steinhardt, songwriter/keyboardist/guitarist Kerry Livgren and bassist Dave Hope were all contributing factors to the disapproval, it seems. However, mentioned ”Power” should perhaps instead be judged on its own merits, as it is what it is. Put out in a time when commercial Melodic Hardrock was very much in fashion, with FM rock radio and MTV as ever the important ingredients of daily life. In the end, the album actually landed at a respectable No. 35 on the Billboard chart, while the single/ballad ”All I Wanted” eventually rose to an even more impressive No. 19.

    • They have a real knack for writing (and producing!) songs that could be featured in '80s coming of age films and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible. Really putting the retro in retrowave
