    So a full 20 days before the cruise check in begins,that seems like the earliest ever.But this long stoppage in announments killed me from going.Great deals on other travel around Christmas and strong American dollar took my money overseas.I can imagine next year the line up has to be even better because things economical look terrible and he needs some non repeats to keep people happy.Great line up but not one killer band I had not seen on the boat before.And the question mark has been filled.

    Pelican would fit the clue/alphabet placement, but is Post-Metal a fit for the cruise?

    Certainly does fit.

    Would be a stretch for 70K though - don't think there has been anything like them on any previous lineup.

    Not sure if fits but to me would be awesome. Honestly I´ve never even considered them for the cruise. Pelican has been on my must see list for years. I was expecting them for Roadburn but they were announced for Desertfest London and have an European tour after that. If your guess is correct I will be super happy.

    Pelican's style probably doesn't fit 70K but there's nothing wrong with a little diversity. I enjoy their music and would definitely check out a set for sure. I think Pelican does fit the clue a little better.......doubt there are many ravens flying around at sea following cruise ships in Florida or the Caribbean. :lol:

    I prefer Pelican, but Raven sounds more likely. I guess we'll see?

    Instrumental bands are pretty cool. I like Russian Circles, Toundra, Red Swallow, Divinex and Pelican mostly.

    Red Raven would also fit, they are a relatively new metal band from Germany and could take part in the Cripper award.

    However, Raven, as a repeat from 2011 & 2014, sounds much more likely...

    I think the addition of Pelican would be nice for the bill. It certainly would bring some novelty. After years, 70k lineup lacks originality, in my opinion. A formula was found and kept over the years. It is going to be my first 70K and I am going more for the experience and perfect timing than the lineup. So far all the bands I care, I have already seen. There is a few I don´t like at all and some I don´t know, which can lead to some new discovery. I think many veterans keep going back more for the experience/friendship than for the lineup. I see people complaining about late announcements year after year and it doesn´t seem the organization cares about it. As a result of lack of novelty, incomplete lineup missing only a few weeks to go, dollar getting stronger every day, it looks like the cruise is not gonna sell out. It might be time to revise the formula...

    Since we got a band announcement I guess pigs really do fly. Keeping that in mind I'm going to guess Pig Destroyer!

    And yes I'm going to keep guessing pig destroyer and trying to make them fit the clue. At least this time they fit where the ? Is!

    Hopefully pigs do fly. Pig Destroyer would be awesome, but I would love to see Pelican again (only saw them once) Raven fits the old school heavy metal void, but still hoping for Saxon.

    Pig Destroyer or Pelican would be better than Raven not to mention novelty and diversity for the lineup.

    I'm a huge Raven fan and have been so for over 30 years. Their inclusion in the first sailing, along with numerous others, was part of what helped get me onbroad this crazy trip to begin with. The guys are always fun to run into and totally embraced and embodied the spirit of the thing from day one. I agree with the interpretation of the clue as being them for the bird reference as well as the following for some time bit simply for these reasons.

    However, as I'm not going this year and Andy has done such a great job so far of providing the perfect lineup for me to miss, I hope we're wrong and that it is some other band. Otherwise, they would be the first band in all of the announcements so far that I would really regret not seeing onbroad again. Checked out one Pelican tune last night and really enjoyed it but would not cry too much if I missed them so I'm hoping they fit the 'bill' ;)

    C'mon Andy... More folk, death and black metal!!! :death:
    So far at least, 2011, 2012 & 2015 were enough for me

    Aye but since we had few repeats from 2013 in 2015 and none from 2014 announced for 2016 so far we more or less assumed that the no repeats rule was extended to two years - that's also the only reason I can think of why Gloryhammer wasn't booked :mrgreen:

    Exactly - as we are at 45 bands now and no repeats from 2014 we thought that a new 'no bands from the past two years' rule was in effect.

    Would be happy to be proven wrong as I would love to see Gloryhammer back!

    Went through my CDs, collecting sleeves of albums I want to get autographed at the meet and greets.

    And another pile of CDs from bands I'm hoping get announced in the final 15! Well, 14 really as regardless of WHO it is it won't be anyone from my wishlist :lol:

    If the next band were to be a wish list band for me, it'd be a bit of a stretch. Penumbra fits the placement of the question mark, and as far as the clue goes, well, penumbra means a partial shadow, so maybe there's a shadow following the boat that resembles a bird? :lol:
