    Hell yeah. Personally I'm excited as hell with this announcement. Now they need to announce a few more shit bands to run alongside the good ones so I don't have to worry about them doubling up two bands I want to see at the same time. :D

    What albums you recomend to me???

    :lol: :lol: :lol:
    Its Funny I really dont know this band but I am happy, I think that every time that we have a new announcement I become very happy :D :D :D :D

    :cheers:


    They are corny even for power metal

    Albums:
    Glory to the Brave
    Renegade

    Not familiar with their newer material though. The songs I heard off the newest album were absolute shit

    Renegade is rather weak
    Glory To The Brave and Legacy of Kings are the albums to go to
    Crimson Thunder offers some nice tracks while Chapter V isn't such a strong album
    I don't even know what the album title of their 6th album is...but it's quite good - wouldn't recommend it to start with, though
    and their newest LP just got released...
    wishlist '20:
    Axxis - Blind Guardian - Circus Maximus - Doro - Edguy - Frozen Crown - Heavens Gate - Magnum - Opeth - Pretty Maids - Ravenous - Satan - Shadowpath - Silex - Skyclad - Steel Attack - Viathyn - Voyager - Wuthering Heights - 4th Dimension

    Daniel Heiman was wicked on vocals for them. Can't say I've cared for his other projects that much though...

    Most his other projects are pretty much a disgrace to metal.Oh how the mighty hath fallen.

    I really hope Lost Horizon can get a new singer.
    Been waiting since 2005 :evil:

    ...and still I'm afraid LH might not work with another sing
    it's a pity they didn't continue with the "original" line-up - those two albums were as good as it gets

    This was the first band I called after the last cruise.... to me they and Blind Guardian are comparable at the top of Power metal bands... since the last one had Blind Guardian, I was guessing this cruise would definitely have Hammerfall. I was right, and glad that another band is on broad that i DO NOT like because there was beginning to be too high a percentage of bands I actually wanted to see. This will be another band that can fill some gaps that I may possibly eat/sleep/drink/gamble/hang with other forumites that do not like this band :D


    So, for those above reasons, I am very happy that these guys were announced!

    Now, for Sweden, I would love to have:

    Meshuggah
    Arch Enemy
    At the Gates
    The Haunted
    Opeth
    Katatonia
    In Flames
    Soilwork

    I LOVE SWEDEN

    Out of all of these I want Meshuggah the most!!!! It would be KILLER :twisted:

    Who here has a good investigating mind and can look at all the European summer festivals and see which bands are playing ALL/MOST of them ? I think that might be a good indicator of who can potentially be on the cruise. :mrgreen:

    Not Meshuggah because they are finishing their new album... but it should be out in the fall and the cruise would be the best thing for them to do before a North American tour! They are supposed to tour NA in 2012.

    Anyways... i will leave your task up to a European :cool:

    Swedish bands I think would make sense:
    Darkane
    Dimension Zero
    The Resistance
    Impious
    At The Gates
    Lake Of Tears

    bands I think would be less likely but cool:
    Hypocrisy
    Entombed
    Terror 2000
    Carcass
    Candlemass

    bands that would be a stupid idea:

    I like everything about this post.


    My ultimate Swedish wish is Dragonland, but I don't see that happening. Evergrey would be fantastic too and I honestly think there's a good chance they'll be announced.

    shit.... I totally forgot Desultory... what with their reunion and their new cd being quite possibly their best ever... they'd be a Killer old school Swede band to get onbroad (and if you haven't heard the new cd, hop to it!)

    :lol: Wacken was fun when I went though the cruise blew that away. Hellfest looked awesome. Watched some of the performances online. Very jealous of those that went

    Hellfest is the base of the list I am making because Andy was reported to have actually been at Hellfest. It is also HUGE i'm matching the list's up with Tuska, Metalcamp, With Full Force, Graspop, Bloodstock, Hole In The Sky and Summerbreeze.

    If the early indications i'm getting from compiling this list mean anything we should deffinetly get Kreator. Those bastards seem to be playing everything this summer lol

    I'm not the biggest power metal fan in the world. I would have picked Falconer over Hammerfall, but popularity doesn't dictate quality. I've never seen Hammerfall live, but I'll check them out. All I can truly say is at least it's heavier than Nightwish.

    Yes its the middle of winter down here - mind you, people still wander around in short sleeve shirts and shorts.

    Queensland winter = awesome.

    And no I haven't done number crunching lately - glad to see others have taken up where I left off though :D

    Now watch the cabin sales skyrocket on the the back of the Hammerfall announcement.....

    oooooor maybe not :P

    And for those wishing for ARCH ENEMY, I think we can probably rule them out.

    They have gigs scheduled for 20th and 21st of January 2012 in Greece, and it would be a hell of a stretch to get from there to Florida in time for the cruise :cry:

    We've gotten Coroner who are doing all the major festivals. I'm "guessing" this means that Morbid Angel & Morgoth are possibilities as well.

    Agreed completely. And if we want bands of which all of their members are decent people and fun to be around, I certainly hope The Haunted isn't booked - Dolving isn't exactly always the most personable guy.

    I see that most people dont like the new Hammerfal album. I really like it. How many times can you make the same album? I think the same can be said for alot of bands who have recently released new stuff. Like Helloween or Rhapsody or Malmsteen or Gamma Ray. You can't remake the classic albums we've come to love. It's called PROGRESS and GROWING UP. The guitar sound may change or Lyrical content may change. I have learned to expect that from bands who have alot of material. With that being said go back and listen to the new Hammerfall and give it a chance

    I enjoyed the new HammerFall album. It has a bit of a heavier vibe than the last few, which was nice to see, even though I have no issues with any of their output.

    I really hope the next announcement is At the Gates. Say them on their reunion tour and they were unreal - would be a perfect addition to the boat.

    i didnt say anything about it being better than the earlier albums, because its not by a longshot. I kind of compare it to my taste in music over the last 25 years. Going from Whitsnake Ozzy, Kiss, Crue, etc... to Megadeth,Metallica,Venom, Accept,Slayer etc... to Gamma Ray,Rhapsody,Dark Moor,Nightwish,etc...Their tastes change also and the way they approach writing and recording change as well as ability and don't forget about technology changing. I fully respect your opinion on keeping true to your sound and I kinda wish they could do it every time. But like I said earlier how many Operation Mindcrimes or Powerplants or Peace Sells does every band have in em. So I guess we agree to disagree. Thanks for disagreeing with me. I think they'll be great on the boat. Hope to meet you on the trip. Will you be wearing the horns?
