What's wrong with having an equal amount of North American bands hmmm mate?
You know that USA is not 50% of the world, right?
I am hoping that the rest of the lineup is less america focused, and I am from the San Francisco Bay Area. Testament and Exodus are excluded from this...but any more Nu Metal/Rap Metal would be for me. Though I am sure there are other exceptions I would make (Exhumed, Gruesome). I would NEVER want 70,000 tons to turn into an Ozzfest type of event.
I have enjoyed seeing all the European metal on past cruises and I am stoked that Hagard is back on board. I would love for The Crown, or some other European bands that I have never seen before to be there as well. Variety is what makes 70,000 tons work, even if I am not into all the metal being played (looking at you power metal fans :)
We still have 40 bands left to go, so I doubt that the mix of American to other nationalities is locked in yet.
