    Anyway, I voted for Overkill. They are a possibility, but I mainly voted that way because that's the band I actually desire the most. To be honest, I think Candlemass, Hypocrisy, Carcass, and Amon Amarth are much better guesses. It's definitely someone huge, but I doubt it will be Wintersun since they were the last minute announcement two years ago. Since I've seen all these bands a good number of times, it really doesn't matter much to me which band it is, the lineup is already an ace for me. :mrgreen:

    Correct you are. Even in the 40-ish band days of The Majesty we always had at least 2.

    And now Carcass takes the lead in the poll...

Remember that Johan had the 70k hole in his US solo tour (I can't remember what he was touring)? Coincidentally, last year was the first year IIRC that there was no bonus band.

    This year we've got Carcass posting on Facebook, and the 70000 Tons marketing team has been egging people on on social media whenever they guess that Amon Amarth will be next. So, because math, Carcass will be no. 60 and Amon Amarth will be 61.

    Your logic seems sound. I'm hoping your right.

    Given Carcass' last minute post and "stow aways" comment, I'm starting to think that Amon Amarth or a similar heavy hitter fell through *again* - they must be very expensive for UMC -, and that Carcass was Plan B.
    That or, given strong sales, Andy realized they could afford an extra known band, just to be able to announce AA at the 11th hour. But like somebody said, that would set very high expectations for the future.
    Then of course, bridging the two bands there's this: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=NlHorNy758k

    And yes, I should just let things be and go back to work, but like many people I find it hard to concentrate on anything else right now :wank:

    For the past few days I'm spending more time thinking about 70k, reading this forum, discovering music and planning 70k shit, than doing actual work :D

    That's the plan, according to the most recent video posted on their YouTube page anyways.

    what's the basis for the Amon Amarth guess? I was told by a very good source in Gothenburg that they'd never do the cruise again.

    I had heard Candlemass was already on but just not yet announced. I guess we shall see whether I have good informants...sooon! :3drunks:

    Someone posted in the last week or so that they had spoken with Candlemass recently & they will not be there. We will wait & see.

    The basis is that they are the top requested band, and 70k has gone out of their way to intentionally tease an Amon Amarth announcement for 6 months. Everyone was predicting them as the first announcement for this year's cruise. Instead, 70k started with 4 other bands that start with the letter A, and then put clues in like 'the next artist is also from a Nordic country and starts with the letter 'A.' Then they keep making a point to say 'we will be back with more A's later on' when they don't do that for any other letter. They also keep messing with people on social media that are talking about Amon Amarth.

    I am curious, was a reason given to your source as to why they wouldn't do the cruise again? They just didn't enjoy the experience, or is it purely financial? Everything I saw on youtube seemed to indicate that they enjoyed themselves.

    Downvod wrote:The basis is that they are the top requested band, and 70k has gone out of their way to intentionally tease an Amon Amarth announcement for 6 months. Everyone was predicting them as the first announcement for this year's cruise. Instead, 70k started with 4 other bands that start with the letter A, and then put clues in like 'the next artist is also from a Nordic country and starts with the letter 'A.' Then they keep making a point to say 'we will be back with more A's later on' when they don't do that for any other letter. They also keep messing with people on social media that are talking about Amon Amarth.

    You left out the rumors that they were supposed to be on broad last year. That's where it all started; before the first round of announcements people were predicting that AA would be the first band announced.

    To me, the lack of a letter would seem to indicate that it would give away the surprise if we knew. That means it's either A or C. I went with A because I think people are reading too much into the Carcass thing. Since when do bands tease the cruise weeks before they're announced?

    Pretty sure Alestorm has done that in the past. Someone in Wintersun also posted right before they were announced that he was off on a last minute vacation, which is a dead giveaway. Some bands tease more than others, and some bands give it away too early which makes Andy upset.

    I had heard Candlemass was already on but just not yet announced. I guess we shall see whether I have good informants...sooon! :3drunks:

    I also heard from a very good source in Gothenburg that they would not be on board. However, they will be waiting in Haiti to ambush us aboard viking longboats, then the real cruise can begin.

    i was told they could not get paid the amount they wanted so they'd never do the cruise again. of course, people have said "never" and then if the right dollar amount happens, they might eat their words. This is just what a friend of the band told me for several years and he hasn't been wrong yet.

    no candlemass is a bummer if that's true, they'd be my pick.

    Definitely no Candlemass, or else Misery Loves Co. Wouldn't need a fill in, which they've officially announced

    So things change a little bit after the two cancellations. Now I believe that out of Overkill, Carcass, Amon Amarth and Wintersun, we should get at least 2 of them.

    I heard that Venom would never do the cruise again and they were back in 2015...I heard that Iced Earth would never do the cruise again but they were back last year...I heard Kamelot would never do the cruise again and they are on this year. Never say never!

    I vaguely remember something being said about a set being played in Haiti. I'm still holding out hope that that one set will be Hypocrisy.
