    Yeah you and me both mate. I have a lot of "yeah, maybe I'll check out a set" bands, and a few "will be good to see them. AGAIN" bands, but zero "OMG I FINALLY GET TO SEE THEM LIVE!!!!!" bands.


    Exactly. Other than Therion I could miss any of the other bands completely and not even be bothered by it. Of the ones I actually like I have seen them all multiple times, and none of those are absolute favorites. Draconian is my number one never seen band, but I doubt that will happen.

    Well, I feel silly. This "debut of Refuge" hint was out here all along. Completely forgot about it until now.

    Nothing today it would seem :( While not completely non-existent, evening announcements are definitely not the norm.

    And given that it is now after 6pm in Vancouver, it reduces the likelihood of an announcement drastically.

    There has only ever been one Xmas eve announcement previously - Kataklysm got added at 12.55am on Xmas day 2011 (Australian time). So Vancouver time that would have been about 8am Xmas eve.

    COBURN PHARR to join ANNIHILATOR onbroad 70000TONS 2015

    by Andy » Tue Dec 23, 2014 7:39 pm

    I am proud to announce that ANNIHILATOR mastermind Jeff Waters has invited ex-vocalist COBURN PHARR to feature in their performances when The World's Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise sails to Jamaica in January 2015. Pharr was lead vocalist on ANNIHILATOR's critically acclaimed and best-selling 1990 release “Never, Neverland” that includes classics such as “Road To Ruin”, “I Am In Command”, “Reduced To Ash” and “Phantasmagoria”.

    Waters comments: “Seeing as how it is the 25th Anniversary of my favorite ANNIHILATOR album, I thought it would be a lot of fun to invite Coburn with us to perform some of the songs he was a part of. I haven’t seen him since 1992 so I think the fans are going to spot us having lots of conversations about the old days (and my 80's hair style)! Current ANNIHILATOR vocalist Dave Padden is very much looking forward to this as he is a huge fan of that album and Coburn, but also because he won’t have to play and sing those songs hahaha...!”

    Well, Cowboy... there is still a few hours left BEFORE Christmas Eve. If we typically get more than one band announcement, maybe Andy's warming up for something big.

    I guess not tonight, because an announcement regarding a band that was ALREADY announced does not count, and it seems that's all we got.

    At least that means lots of songs from Never Neverland in the setlists. Can't complain about that.

    Not sure I understand the criticisms this Annihilator update is generating. It's not like it's taking up an extra spot in the lineup or like Jeff is bringing a sub-par version of the band. If ya like Annihilator, this just adds to the value of their sets. If ya don't like them, it's irrelevant. It'd be like me complaining cuz Andy announced that In Extremo was bringing along the hurdy-gurdyist from their 2nd album. It would have absolutely no impact on me at all.

    Happy Fucking Festivititus Everyone :P

    Not having seen ANNIHILATOR live here in my hometown in LA. Im excited to finally see them on broad, even greater to hear Coburn Pharr will be doing some vocals with them. This is going to be awesome!

    The skipper was last on the forum 12 hours ago.

    Its now midday in Vancouver so if we get anything today I would expect it to be in the next few hours.

    Regardless, its 6am Xmas morning here in Oz so MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!

    To Andy, Mike, Caitlyn, Vincent and all the gang at UMC - thanks for all the hard work and I hope you are able to have a nice break between all the organisings :)

    I'm guessing it should be within the next couple of hours, since being Xmas they'll probably close the office around 2pm Vancouver time. Fingers crossed!

    If not we may have an overnight announcement for a morning present (for those of us that are in a somewhat similar timezone).

    I hope they give us a big band that hasn't been hinted at. An actual surprise would be welcome!

    Same to you guys. Now...will there be something under the Christmas Tree by tomorrow morning? Will Sandy Claws bring us some gifts? Even some bands announced in pieces of coal would be great!

    I'm such a noob. I was honestly expecting to wake up for a Xmas announcement, and I am waking up at 5pm, so it was PLENTY of time.

    Official business around New Year's will be the voting and announcement of the Jeff Waters set list so I do not have a high expectation of any bands added during that time.

    We had Izegrim/Pungent Stench/Haggard/Vicious Rumors added on the 27th last year, and Sinister added on the 28th the year before.

    So I would not be surprised if we get a band or two over the next few days, then the voting process around the end of December, then announcements starting up again around the 4th of January.

    Kreator had a great time a while back - so unless they have a Schafer-esque post-cruise regret syndrome I think that they would jump at the chance to return.

    And please don't think I am bashing Jon Schafer - Iced Earth was one of my first metal bands and I thought Jon was one of the warmest and friendliest people on the boat and he generally seemed to be enjoying himself, which is why I am baffled at his stance that he does not want to play a cruise again.

    I could have sworn that I saw some tour dates during the cruise that would rule out Kreator and Barren Earth, but I just did a search for them and I can't find any January 2015 tour dates for either bands. I guess I was dreaming it.

    That's damn good news! lol

    I have to agree that Kreator was a big disappointment on the boat (and I love Kreator) ... I found the show boring and lack luster . I was really looking forward to seeing them too. I still love the band and their music , but the shows on the boat were no where near what I expected from them. On that note I would love for them to have a chance to redeem themselves on the boat . :cheers: :beerhorns: :givebeer:

    Interesting. I know that the first time Eluveitie came to town my friend said the same thing... bad sound setup. Maybe Kreator had a similar problem?
