    I saw their Wacken set is advertised as a "Slaughter of the Set", what are the chances we might get one too?

    At The Gates is doing a huge tour with Amon Amarth, Arch Enemy and Grand Magus through north America late fall. If ATG is on I wouldn't be surprised to see one or all of them as well, so count that as a prediction

    Epica would really be a very nice addition.

    I have missed them on several occasions when they had concerts near me. They would be an absolute must see for both my wife and me.

    They are always a joy to behold, and some wonderful people in that band too. Seen them 7 times so far and would be more than happy to add to that :)

    Epica just announced a short run of NA dates with a suspicious gap between January 5th and January 12th........

    I give them 90%+ chance of being on 70k next year.
    I say 100%. They have just (pretty much) confirmed it by replying to my comment. :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Further evidence.. it's both Design Your Universe and 70K's 10th anniversary AND Epica were one of the first 11 or so bands that were announced for the very first cruise in 2011, so it stands to reason that they and a lot of the other maiden voyage bands will be returning for 2020.
    What’s so special about having them come back 9 years later? Shouldn’t this logic apply to 2021?

    No, because 2020 is the TENTH YEAR of 70K, not the 9th. Maybe the below will help..

    1. 2011
    2. 2012
    3. 2013

    5. 2015

    No, because 2020 is the TENTH YEAR of 70K, not the 9th. Maybe the below will help..

    I agree. Simple language difference but I'll do my best to explain.

    The cruise is coming up on Round 10, the 10th cruise, but not the 10th anniversary. It's the 9th anniversary. The first anniversary would be in 2012. The inaugural cruise, in 2011, was the 0th anniversary, but was round 1.

    Design Your Universe was released Oct 16, 2009. That date was the 0th anniversary. Oct 16, 2010 would have been the first. October 16, 2019, will be the 10th anniversary.

    While no formal legitimate link between the two, it still could be kind of neat to see the 10th anniversary of DYU on Round 10 of the cruise :P

    Right, one of them celebrates a unique event, while the other celebrates 10 unique events, and that’s what they’re proud of, having made ten of them (like the 100th show in show business).
    So celebrating the 10th anniversary of the first cruise wouldn’t matter as much, since there has been many others since, and each of them will have their own 10th anniversary.
    I still think *that* would be the time to bring back those original bands though, since in that case it’s this specific event that would be celebrated. Round X calls for new bands to make it even more unique IMO.
    In the end, this seems to be a tradition unique to show business.

    And it's all about marketing too.

    This way they will get mileage from two '10's to put marketing spin on.

    ie this year:

    "ROUND X! Exciting! Our Tenth Cruise! YEAH BABY YEAH!"

    Next year:

    "10th Anniversary cruise! YEAH BABY YEAH!"

    While Andy will probably feel sentimental on January 24th 2021 since it'll be the 10th anniversary of UMC's first sailing, it's certainly a much bigger deal to him to have RoundX, the 10th 70k sailing, than what will be the 11th sailing (12th UMC sailing if you wanna count Barge, haha). It's a bigger accomplishment/milestone to do something 10 times than it is to do something 11 times. It's just the way our very categorical brains work. As such, he probably wants to bring back the bands that agreed to do the first cruise, because they are commemorating this achievement this year - as opposed to celebrating each band having performed there 10 years previous.

    Behemoth just announced a UK/Europe tour with Slipknot and as much as I still can't wrap my head around that combination (Knotfest confused me enough...) I did happen to notice that it doesn't start until January 14th.

    Coincidence? Probably, but here's hoping I'll finally catch my Big #1 on BOAT

    Here is one prediction:

    SALTATIO MORTIS

    Since 2015 Andy has been booking one of the big German Mittelalter metal bands (In Extremo, Saltatio Mortis and Subway to Sally). If we follow the same rotation, this year is Saltatio's turn.

    I really hope you're right. I loved them on the boat last time, and saw them this year at Wacken Winter Nights. They've only gotten better since 2017.

    That said, there are other big German Mittelalter bands out there that could fill the token slot. Feuerschwanz are fantastic, and I would like to see them on the boat.

    I am liking the Jinjer band more and more recently.
    I'd 100% watch them on the boat if they come onbroad.
    Image

    My eyes went wide open when I saw Grand Magus ^ and I bloody hope so!
    They've never been on the boat. Crazy!


    Wish list 2020: Grand Magus, ARCTURUS, Borknagar, SIGH, Vastum, ABSU, Temple of Void, Frozen Crown, Rippikoulu, King Diamond, Churchburn, Devin Townsend, Amorphis, Bewitcher, Kawir, Vuur, Chthonic, Cemetery Urn, Tombs, Acid Witch

    Last year we guessed 8 bands right out of 33+ guesses (6 from the list of 27 until November, then NEKROGOBLIKON and DRAGONY at the last minute).
    So about 25%.

    I have to admit that having both MERCYFUL FATE *and* MORBID ANGEL would be hard to resist, even for me.
    The other bands not so much, BEHEMOTH, AMON AMARTH and ROSS THE BOSS would be nice, but wouldn’t cause me to change my plans.

    It would be a massive coup if Andy scored Mercyful Fate. I've heard that King is a paranoid/hypochondriac kind of guy so a boat would not be the ideal scenario for him :P

    It's funny how big it would be now, but 20 years ago they really were not that big.
    I saw them in Seattle in 1998 (a year before they split) in a small club, and I remember paying $25 for something like 8 bands (including a NYHC band playing shirtless, weird); there were so many bands that the show ended at 2am.
    OTOH, the 90s were really a low point for metal worldwide in terms of commercial success, with all the grunge and nu metal crazes.

    Pics of that show: http://www.mortado.com/gravemusic/live/fate/index.shtml

    Hypochondriac? He’d love WASHY WASHY then!! He’d probably join them.
