    Hi don't mean to be so late on this thread, but I'm Brent! Sailing with my girlfriend Loretta and a group of my best friends. I went on the 2013 70K, but this will be Loretta's first ever metal concert event.

    City/country:
    Middle of Nowhere, MN USA

    What first got you into metal?
    Savatage's Hall of the Mountain King video... I had metalish tendancies before that, but that's when I was sold that metal was awesome! I got Loretta into metal with Sonata Arctica's live DVDs and some really good dark beer one night.

    Play any instruments?
    I've played guitar for 25+ years, written some interesting songs. Currently play in a slightly metaled up cover band called Strange Brew. I committed to 7-strings, and haven't ever looked back.

    Top 5 bands?
    Savatage
    Blind Guardian
    Sonata Arctica
    Iron Maiden
    Equilibrium

    What do you do?
    Work on computers, nothing high end, just a support jockey that administers networking equipment and computers.

    What deck are you on?
    2

    What do you like to do in your spare time?
    Play video games, watch movies, brew and drink beer

    What's a creepy thing I can say when I see you that no stranger should know and will weird you out that I do?
    How's your all-male Lady Gaga tribute band called "Bad Bromance" coming along?

    We DEFINITELY have to find each other on the boat man! I forgot to mention that I used to play keys in the Chicago area Savatage tribute band "Ghost in the Ruins" back in 2007-2009 I still look pretty much the same, hair's a lil' thinner. :bangers: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9VRcuOcDPS

    I wish I could have formed a Savatage tribute sometime but nobody my age has heard of Savatage :lol: But I've learned most of Criss's solos and riffs in my free time.

    Seems like I'm always the last to do these things... Here goes...

    City: Boone, North Carolina

    Age: 32

    What got me into metal? The guy that was fucking my older sister was into metal. He gave me Reign in Blood and Seven Churches on tape. Been running with the devil ever since.

    Can I play an instrument. Nope.

    Top 5 bands... Yikes. This could take a while. I can give a short list.

    Bolt Thrower
    Death
    Amon Amarth
    Carcass
    Slayer
    Possessed
    Danzig
    Mayhem
    At the Gates

    Well... You see I like all the good stuff.

    No, that was probably my friend Ripper. He's a bit of a legend in the metal scene here as well, but he's currently off terrorizing the world on the RenFaire circuit. :lol:

    70K First timer, just got my ticket so let me introduce myself

    City/country:
    Newcastle, Australia

    Age (optional):
    24 by the cruise time

    What first got you into metal?
    High School project into the history of Rock & Roll got me hooked on Iron Maiden and evolved from there.

    Play any instruments?
    I can make some noise, but not generally play. Bought an accordion to learn, but other than the riff of Turisas' Rasputin it's been a bit of a shambles.

    Top 5 bands?
    Ohh, only 5?!
    Alright then: Korpklaani, Ensiferum, Sabaton, Turisas, Tyr (hoping for some cool announcements soon, but if I hold my breath I'm likely to pass out).

    What do you do?
    You can best describe it as Human Resources Manager for the government. It is a little more exciting than it sounds, I might have to tell you exactly over a beer.

    What deck are you on?
    Not sure what this means, but I think D1?

    What's a creepy thing I can say when I see you that no stranger should know and will weird you out that I do?
    I own 4 volumes of Gumby (the green plasticine kind, not the hanky on head kind)
    Secret lego collector if anyone wants to spin a lego yarn, hahah

    Will keep an eye out. You can keep an ear out, and home in to the aussie accents, you're bound to find me somewhere. :bangers:

    My ex girlfriend went in 2013 and made me super jealous. Unfortunately I had a training course I couldn't escape from so had to stay behind. Been waiting for the time off work ever since to experience one for myself, and after much pushing of s**t uphill I finally got the time away.

    Also, considering I'm Australian I'm very proud that I've managed to see all 5 of those bands live in the last 2 years :beerbang:

    the final details for the concert are not set yet other than it will be on the 21st at the revolution in Fort Lauderdale but the guy setting it up cannot announce it till the cruise announces a few more bands since some of the performers on the ship.

    28

    What first got you into metal?
    Guitar shredders. When I was young they always amazed me how they could play so fast and technical. When I was 14, I begged my parents to buy me a guitar for XMas, they obliged with a band new china made fender squire. I've been jamming out to all my metal favorites ever since.

    Top 5 bands?
    Iron Maiden
    Death
    Symphony X
    Emperor
    Sentenced


    What do you do?
    I work as a software developer for a company dealing with earthquake seismology and other types geo physics. Believe me, it's confusing as all hell.

    What deck are you on?

    8

    What's a creepy thing I can say when I see you that no stranger should know and will weird you out that I do?
    I had a band when I was 14, it's name was krysko. If you mention that I will be thoroughly creeped out. Or ask me about the time I shit my pants while driving....

    Someone should make a band called Megadeath. You could play songs like Swetting Bullits and all you'd need to do is be more reliable than Dave at gigs and you'd make a fortune

    Damn, as a non-native English speaker, I thought only "favourite" was correct and not also "favorite". Consequences of having studied the language mainly in a British school, I guess. My apologies :)

    I hadn't even noticed Maidien... but I'm willing to believe that 1, of the 2, was a typo

    Damn, as a non-native English speaker, I thought only "favourite" was correct and not also "favorite". Consequences of having studied the language mainly in a British school, I guess. My apologies :)


    That spelling is almost exclusively US. Don't feel bad.

    Brits won't make many concessions with disagreements about spelling, but most do concede that they overuse the letter u where it just isn't needed.

    I'll agree with that. Though I do find the reversal of er to re in most cases to be more elegant and make more sense.
