Rank 'em!

by Malaka » Thu Jul 21, 2011 8:28 pm

So how would you rank the bands so far, as far as your favorites, on a scale of 1 to 10. Ten being your favorite!
The reason for this is because I'm hoping for one or two more 10's on my list... but I'd like to see how happy everyone else is, and who's the most satisfied so far! :mrgreen:

My Dying Bride - 11 out of 10 :twisted:
Samael - 8
Dark Funeral - 8
Pestilence - 5
Coroner - 5
Tristania - 4
Nightwish - 4
Therion - 4
Tankard - 3
Grave Digger - 3
In Extremo - 3
Amorphis - 3
Moonsorrow - 3
Hammerfall - 1
Stratovarious - 1
Eluveitie - 1

Tristania - 20!! :headbanger:
Nightwish - 9
Samael - 8
Therion - 7
Eluveitie - 7
Moonsorrow - 3
My Dying Bride - 2
Dark Funeral - 1
Pestilence - 1
Coroner - 1
Tankard - 1
Grave Digger - 1
In Extremo - 1
Amorphis - 1
Hammerfall - 1
Stratovarious - 1

I had to give 1's to all the bands I don't know... but through this cruise I have been introduced to Eluveitie which I quite like, and have listened to a few songs from Moonsorrow which seem ok and My Dying Bride are ok. The others I haven't really listen to or have particularly liked

I was very considerate with my list. I can say I'm only excited for My Dying Bride. Samael and Dark Funeral are a bonus, but everyone else might as well be a 1. :oops: Vader would be a 9 or 10! They're rumored, but who knows yet.
Thanks for playing fatum! :cheers: Anyone else? :mrgreen:

Pretty much this. The same rating here though I'd give Amorphis and Moonsorrow a bit more credit. I'll def. hit them up.

Agreed. I don't think anything they could do could live up to the lineup or experience, but I find this year a bit more "accessible" if that makes sense.

For now. . .

Amorphis - Pre 1995 - 10/10, now. . .2/10
Coroner - 3/10
Dark Funeral - 1/10
Eluveitie - 9/10
Grave Digger - 4/10
Hammerfall - 6/10
In Extremo - 8/10
Moonsorrow - 9/10
My Dying Bride - 1/10
Nightwish - 6/10
Pestilence - 1/10 (not familiar with them at all, sorry)
Samael - 4/10
Stratovarius - 7/10
Therion - 9.5/10
Tristania - 3/10


Not as polarizing as last year so far for me -- I could very well go see every band announced.
Last year, however, with three of my favorite four bands of all-time on broad (Tyr, Sonata Arctica, Ensiferum) that I would consider 10/10, I can't say any of the bands announced thusfar 'wow' me as much as them.


EDIT: September 9th, 2011 -- Just listened to four songs by Whiplash. This is seriously one of the worst bands I've ever heard. First 0/10 for me.

Going to listen to some Riot, Virgin Steele, and Overkill and update my list. Giving Cannibal Corpse and Suffocation a 2/10, would only see a Cannibal Corpse set for the lulz.

EDIT2: Riot is pretty fucking good.

I've been trying to give the low rated bands a lot of listens and be open so I've little hate for any of the bands announced so far but just not much to make me any less desperate for something that would rate from 8 - 10 for me.

Anyways, I'm sure none of this will shock anyone...

My Dying Bride - 6
Samael - 2
Dark Funeral - 1
Pestilence - 5
Coroner - 6
Tristania - 2
Nightwish - 2
Therion - 2
Tankard - 6
Grave Digger - 8 if it was 1985 but now I'd say about 3
In Extremo - 1
Amorphis - 4
Moonsorrow - 2
Hammerfall - 4
Stratovarious - 0
Eluveitie - 2

The good part is you can probably add 2 or 3 to all of them but Strato cuz they'll be performing on a boat in the ocean with all you crazy drunk fuckers cheering and having a blast so that helps ;)
So far at least, 2011, 2012 & 2015 were enough for me

I don't want to hate more than I already have, so I won't rank what my opinions are. However, it will be obvious when I'm pleased with an announcement.
Never take anything I say seriously.

I'm onbroad with you guys, but there were more bands this year that I missed entirely or only caught a few minutes of than have been announced so far for the 2012 cruise.

For the record, if this was the lineup that was announced last year when I first heard about this cruise, I would not be booking yet.

I'm basing my numbers on how interested I'd be to go to the show if these bands were playing in my area (1 means I wouldn't even think of attending, 10 means I'd drive the 4 hours to Chicago & take time off work to see the show), not playing on a cruise that I've already booked.

My Dying Bride - 8
Samael - 6
Dark Funeral - 4
Pestilence - 6
Coroner - 10
Tristania - 1
Nightwish - 1
Therion - 5
Tankard - 6
Grave Digger - 3
In Extremo - 1
Amorphis - 6
Moonsorrow - 6
Hammerfall - 3
Stratovarious - 1
Eluveitie - 4

*Edit - Good idea italicizing the bands you've seen before, Laura!

Great idea for a thread Slaytanic Erik! :cheers:

I am a VERY happy cruiser thus far.... :D

Bands I've seen one or more times before are in italics - I decided to reserve the 10 rating for bands I really love who I have not seen. For example, I adore Eluveitie, but I've seen them 3x in the past year and a half - so, I'll just give 'em a 9 on the LM excitement scale. ;)

Therion - 10
Samael - 10

Moonsorrow - 9
Eluveitie - 9

Nightwish - 9
Dark Funeral - 9 (Scandinavian black metal? 'nuff said ;) - well....and the one album I've bought so far - Angelus Exuro Pro Eternus - is very good :beerhorns: )

In Extremo - 8

Amorphis - 7
Tristania - 7

My Dying Bride - 6

Grave Digger - 5
Hammerfall - 5

I completely agree with this. Last year, I booked the FIRST day we could (back in February) only because of Sonata Arctica (and I'm a crazy fanboy). There isn't anyone announced that, had I not gone on the cruise last year, I'd be super excited to see and would book the cruise based solely on them.

Ok, so a lot of bands I'd never heard and am checking out on Spotify or Youtube now, so they may not get a very fair score. Unless they blow me away instantly, they probably won't get any more than a 7

My Dying Bride - 10
Samael - 8 (actually liked the 3 songs I checked out, despite having vocals I would usually not like)
Dark Funeral - 5
Pestilence - 4
Coroner - 5
Tristania - with Vibeke-8, now 6
Nightwish - with Tarja-9, now 7
Therion - 9
Tankard - 7
Grave Digger - 7 (probably would have scored higher with different vocals)
In Extremo - 8
Amorphis - 8 (though they were inexplicably boring when I saw them live, worth another shot)
Moonsorrow - 8.5
Hammerfall - 0
Stratovarious - 1
Eluveitie - 9

I'd be just as excited if the cruise had Al Green, Deadmau5, and Wu-Tang Clan. (Well not this cruise, but you get the idea)

I still contend that power metal fans only like black metal because they THINK it helps offset their "girlie factor" for liking ultra cheesy stuff. But they don't realize that most black metal is just as laughable, in its own way. :lol: :P :lol:

Well, I'm surprised by the results! I tallied up the scores and here are the winners by total score:

THERION - 126
ELUVEITIE - 114
MOONSORROW - 113
CORONER - 110
MY DYING BRIDE - 106 (with Kevin's vote they would've been 116)
AMORPHIS - 105
GRAVE DIGGER - 101
SAMAEL - 101
TANKARD - 100
HAMMERFALL - 95
NIGHTWISH - 88
STRATOVARIUS - 87
DARK FUNERAL - 87
PESTILENCE - 80
IN EXTREMO - 75
TRISTANIA - 73

I voted Therion a 4, but I'll be checking out more of them. They took the prize for most 10's given with six.
