    Vote yes if you think CircleIICircle is a horrible last band

    by three_dead_trolls » Wed Jan 12, 2011 12:53 pm

    Circle II Circle? Really? what happened to getting someone good like Opeth, Machine Head, Enslaved, Spiritual Beggars, Vreid, Solefald, Ihsahn, Morbid Angel....the list can go on...
    Who cares about a bunch of 80's C*ck rock has beens. I really hope that the cruise organizers get a better band then them confirmed as the last band...

    You just have to think about it from a more positive perspective, it gives you the actual time to perhaps see one of your favorite bands twice, time to drink heavily between shows, a chance to eat/sleep, for the men - a chance to hit on Simone Simons while she's in a bikini, they are going to have a bunch of really awesome work shops and meet and greets with the bands from what is posted on the site. Two words: metal karaoke.

    I'm not overly upset that its a band that I've never really gotten into either and will probably end up passing up, wouldn't go out of my way to miss em though - there's going to be WAY to fucking much to do on this ship already.

    jeez man, enough bitching about the line-up and CIIC already for fucks sake. Look at the line-up as a whole, it is f'ing amazing. You have to have some smaller acts at every fest. I just hate seeing a negative thread thrown up here within days of leaving while most of us are rejoicing at the fact that the cruise is happening at all and that we are lucky enough to be able to go. Lighten up a bit man. :cheers:

    I vote NO, Circle II Circle is a nice last band. There are already too many Thrash/death metal bands, is more fair bring a power, symphonic or progressive metal band.

    While CircleIICircle is not what i would consider a main band to book i don't actually recall anybody stating that the last band would be the headliner.
    Yes they stated that band number 40 would blow us away but they also have not announced that this is band number 40 have they?
    While i'm not hugely enthusiastic about this band i can safely say they''d deserve to be on the cruise more than certain other bands.

    It's retarded that you are making a thread to vote agaisnt a band that you don't even know is playing on the cruise.

    Here's another point.The last band is probbaly not a huge band anyway.Although one could say that a small band announced could be a huge announcment for some and not for the rest.The booking of bands on this cruise has been orientated towards well known bands in the metal scene but not mainstream bands.
    It's kind of more of a special cruise in that way for metal.
    Realistically this cruise wouldn't happen if they were to book bands like Slayer,Metallica etc because of their rediculous costs.You're getting 40 metal bands on a cruise and the only way to do this without financially crippling the organisers of this event would be to book the kind of lineup we have.

    I really don't care about the lack of Death metal and black metal either.Thats normal.A lot of people are under this bizzare illusion that Black metal and Death metal is much more popular than heavy metal and power metal but that is infact bullshit i will tell you now.
    They were never gonna book many Death or black metal bands in the first place because they wil not realistically boost cabin sales.Part of that comes down to an underground elitism thing.but hey thats another story.You'd understand if you lived in Ireland ;)
    And yes i'm back on the booze :lol:

    OK, you haven't even heard of the band and you ask for something good... come on. I've seen the band couple of times and all I can say is this: they might not be the everyones dream band (especially not Nr. 40), but they 100% deserve to play at this festival. More than some of the bands that are aboard (for example all folk metal crap out there). Circle II Circle always gave 100% at their concerts, no matter if they performed in front of 1000+ people or just a small, yet dedicated crowd of 30. They know what metal is all about, they care about their loyal fans, they're not spoiled assholes (newsflash: many on your list are...).

    Big deception... They should have keep another name of the boat put this one in the middle so it would have been a bigger name...

    i might just sit back with a beer and relax while watching these guys play. They don't sound half bad, and they're talented, so maybe it'll be somewhat entertaining.
    I myself am quite happy with the line up we have. Seriously, think about it, it's a beast line up.

    +1 But hey... who gives a shit about band 40 with an already super lineup, I mean just check artists already on this boat, 5 band was confirmed when I booked my trip Finntroll and Amon Amarth was the only band I liked then. But now I have 12 bands SURE TO SEE, and probably 8 more maybe.

    OFC I would like to see Turisas or Watain or Dimmu Borgir / Sear Bliss as last band, but hey you cant get everything, so quit whining or give your cabin to someone else more addicted to a metal cruise than someone addicted to cry about the last band isnt your cup of tea. Cuz somebody is probably happy that they´re the last. IF they are, still not confirmed.

    Pissed of whishlist for the cruises:
    Turisas, Behemoth, Dimmu Borgir, Dalriada, Motorhead, Vader, Arch Enemy, Abinchova, Northland, Sear Bliss, Watain, Slayer, Raubtier, Immortal, Xandria, Fear Factory, Rammstein, Running Wild

    I had never even heard of them :| And YES, I was expecting the last band announcement to be something big. Most of the bands I care to see were announced between 10 and 25.

    That being said, I don't think it's fair to be so negative towards the band just because the are/may be the last band and you're disappointed that it wasn't someone HUGE.

    I checked out some of their music, and I actually enjoyed it a lot more than some of the other bands. So I might just go see them on the cruise! :party:

    I personally think Circle II Circle is one of the most underrated bands of the last decade. Their first two albums are brilliant, and if they play some songs from Edge of Thorns I'm completely happy. Some people here make it seem like I'll be the only one in front of that stage, we'll see...
    This wining seems mainly 'between the ears' to me: if they were # 37 to be announced, no one would have complained.

    i don't know why you're all bitching about the 40th band ............... you have 39 other bands to watch if you don't want to see CIIC !!!!!!!!!!!!! and i think it's cool that there are actually different kinds of music on board that way people have the choice ! not everyone is about death metal ..... and even those who are they shouldn't judge a band that they don't even know about !!!!!!!!!!! and you know what else? there are a LOT of famous bands that aren't worth a shit , and plenty of less well known ones who actually are very good! they're not a cheesy band just because they play progressive/melodical metal !
    QUIT BITCHING !!!!!!!!!
    and if you want to see someone really famous go to las vegas and catch a Celine Dion show !

    They were never gonna book many Death or black metal bands in the first place because they wil not realistically boost cabin sales.Part of that comes down to an underground elitism thing.but hey thats another story.:


    On the other end of the spectrum is the Maryland Deathfest, where I can say there are maybe TOO MANY death/grind bands. I love death metal but having 10 garden variety homemade garbage grind bands as the openers every night seems a tad "overkill" but they sell out the event almost every year. I like the fact that it has a higher percentage of bands I want to see, but adding more variety would also be nice (but that would also lessen the chance of bands I want to see though). I just accept the fact that there isn't a 100% perfect festival for my tastes.

    And if you ever went on the forums for that event, all the members seem to whine and complain about any band that sells more than 10-15 records and the more obscure they band, the more foaming at the mouth all of them want them to appear. The people here are far more sane and reasonable by comparison :mrgreen:

    very astute observations kev and i too wish there was a little more variety on deathfest! thats why i doubt we're going thursday night...so much grind and stuff that is just simply unlistenable to my ears. but CORONER! NUCLEAR ASSAULT! those two bands alone sold me on MD this year.

    I don't mind them being included but it was definitely an anticlimactic 40th band. Makes me wonder why they didn't take me up on my Saint Vitus offer. Saint Vitus' manager thought it was a good enough idea to email me 4 or 5 times about it but the 70000 Tons folks said, "Thanks, but no thanks."
