    Disaster Area: a plutonium rock band from the Gagrakacka Mind Zones, are generally held to be not only the loudest rock band in the history of the Galaxy, but the loudest noise of any kind at all.

    reading my thoughts... It will be a shame if it doesn't happen.


    I just hope that they don't count Demons & Wizards as one of the 40 bands.... Maybe make them a bonus.

    I have nothing against all the power & folk metal on board, but I really do hope that there's some more brOOtal stuff to come with the final six. You know, for balance. Marduk is looking really lonely as the sole black metal band announced so far. I hope that means a big name black metal band like Immortal, or Cradle of Filth, or both are announced.

    Eluveitie would be an excellent addition. I've had the chance to see them live once, but it was a pretty short set.

    I love the Blind Guardian announcement, wasn't really surprising but a great one nonetheless. Blackguard isn't too bad either. For those of you who haven't heard their pre-Blackguard material, I recommend it. They used to be known as Profugus Mortis.

    They would! Plus they are very unlikely to ever tour Australia, so I am hoping for the last six bands to be in the same boat, unlikely to tour here or have never toured here.

    Blackguard are good live and very funny guys! Not a bad announcement, but not the best.

    I'm upgrading Cripper and Witchburner out of the "filler" status since they are solid heavy/aggressive bands and it would be insulting to them to be in the same category as Blackguard.

    Blackguard is the filler material on this cruise. This isn't even folk metal, it's folk CORE. It's got all the trendy monotonous screamo vocals, obscene amount of keyboards and every song sounds the same. URGH

    I was pleasantly surprised with Cripper. I'd never heard of them before this cruise, but will definitely be at one of their sets on the cruise. Yet to listen to Witchburner, but I have to update my "70000 Tons Of Metal" playlist on my iPod. :mrgreen:

    Super trendy, so I guess Nuclear Blast intends to shove 'em down people's throats no matter if you like them or not. Do they have an actual following or is it the Hot Topic group ?

    The only worse thing would be Trivium taking up a valuable spot (I shudder at the thought).

    Hopefully that score before the half takes some of the edge off.

    I think they got dumped by Nuclear Blast... But not to worry, they are now on Victory! They seem to be trying really hard to be trendy and not so HC. ;)

    They have a modest following, certainly enough to bring a few of their fans to every show... but in all honesty the only thing to watch them for is their stage presence. (Lots of synchronized this: :shred: )

    I am likely not alone when I say I'm sick of seeing them on every other tour around here!

    Although, their keyboard player just quit, which is kinda cool I guess (I'm actually a sucker for keys, however their keyboards are a little overwhelming), so that may tighten up their live sound a bit.

    How ironic, Victory Records. The label that signs every douchebag band in existence :lol:

    Speaking of keyboards, I'm excited to pick up Rock Band 3 in the coming weeks/months since you can play keyboards in the game. Pro Mode teaches you the basics of all the instruments now. I can pretend to kinda have a clue on drums and keys.

    Oh an sychronized :shred: is only cool if the band is good, otherwise it's just a higher degree of "douchebagery".

    (okay, halftime and everything is right with the world, but the Giants never make things easy, it's always a grind it out game)

    Yes, for trying to find what else is brutal onboard that I want to check out... I am on board with these 2. Especially Witchburner.. they are great.. I will get a soar neck from seeing them! Of course with all of the other bands playing around them.... i will still be headbanging a lot more so it would be wrong to pinpoint my soar neck diagnosis to one band :twisted:


    And what do we do with Witches?!?!??

    I know their early stuff wasn't over processed, but didn't they have an album where the drummer admitted to not even playing, he just programmed a drum machine for the recording of the album? Just based on random songs I've heard the past few albums it sounded like processed super slick pro tools type stuff. Was Catch 33 the one where the whole thing sounds the same?

    I always figured they wouldn't be able to reproduce that sound live but I've never seen them.

    Yes, it was Catch 33. that was like an experimental album.... They wanted to do the one super-long progressive song thing. It is cool Meshuggah like to do what they do.. they will try different things or whatever. They are all super smart dudes.
    You know it was because of them that the 8-string guitar was invented.... for the most part it was them inventing it.... before they wrote/recorded their Nothing album (2002)..... they were thinking of just having/playing all bass guitars, distorted... so they created the 8-string.... which is kind of damn close to a bass... Just listen to the intro (on the first album using 8-string, Nothing) on the first track 'Stengah'.... music to my ears and makes me want to move around violently. It's beautiful. Anyways....

    As technical and complex as their time signatures and rhythms are, they are PERFECT live. and their drummer (who despite only programming during the one experimental album) ... is still in my opinion one of the best drummers in the world without a doubt.

    No problem! they have definately influenced some of the technicality in some of the heavier bands in the past decade or more.... that's why when reading things online about certain bands that come out.. if they have a certain feel to them or use certain influence, one would use Meshuggah do help describe partially what a band will sound like...... I've seen 'Meshuggah-ish' and 'Dream-Theater-ish' or 'Opeth-like' in descriptions of new bands out since they are all masters of their respective sub-genres of metal.

    Meshuggah's main 'hits' if you would like to call them that would include (but are not limited to):
    -Humiliative
    -Future Breed Machine
    -New Millenium Cyanide Christ (also has one of the best metal videos of all time, would recommend youtubing it.... you will laugh your ass off.... (though you should hear the song first a few times so you know the song and are not just laughing at it because you are watching the video the first time you hear the song, but it is classic/creative)).
    -Rational Gaze
    -Stengah
    -Bleed

    Damn right! Right now they're my favorites on the cruise due to the fact I haven't seen them yet, but I'm still equally stoked for bands like Ensiferum, Amon Amarth, Korpiklaani, Iced Earth, and Swashbuckle!

    While for me it's a bunch of others... Seems like Blind Guardian may be one of those bands that unites across multiple sub-genres. :headbanger:

    Blackguard too but for the exact opposite reasons lol. I'll be dining with Kevin, Sheila, Jacob and numerous others that evening it seems :heavydrink:

    I'm beginning to think Blind Guardian is the most overrated band in the history of metal. :roll:
    I hope I'm proven otherwise by real dragons and fire and lasers and some kind of mystical Dethklok-type shit.
    Ah, you power metal junkies crack me up!

    Damnit! Not Blind Guardian! How about some Death or Black Metal for the last six bands

    Skål!
