    2025 Rumors and Predictions

    by cowboy71 » Wed Feb 07, 2024 5:24 pm

    Okay lets go!

    Surely the cancellations are a solid chance to get another go:
    Avatarium
    Depressive Age
    Draconian
    Legion of the Damned
    Marduk
    Nile
    Thyrfing

    Others:
    Atrocity (so Alex can host the jam again)
    Be'Lakor - they are planning to tour, heavily requested for MANY years for boat. Now's the time.
    Blaaaack metal - a correction for the lack of it
    Dark Tranquillity or Grand Cadaver - so Mikael Stanne can get on the boat every year
    Haggard (Awakening the Centuries turns 25 in 2025! Full performance on boat would be appropriate!)
    Insomnium - so Markus Vanhala can get on the boat every year
    Sepultura - a fitting farewell?
    Thraaaaaash - rumour that several bay area thrash bands are lined up for 2025
    Witherfall - word of mouth from a band member

    Metallian Roster - surely an artist or two given their strikerate the last few years

    Be'lakor has been planning a north american tour or something - could be good timing for the boat

    it's been a bit too long since Annihilator was onbroad, as is tradition, so surely that is a likely one

    The '24 lineup was criminally light on Thrash. The Stovers have stated publicly that they will NOT be onbroad next year due to the lineups decreasing catering to their wants. Like '23 w the Skipper pulling wishlist hits to entice Stats back into the fold, and with increasing fears of running off two of Boat's biggest champions, '25 will be the year the Bay strikes back. Testament, Overkill and Death Angel will be announced, a couple of them early to assuage those skeptical minds and place cheerleader pom-poms back into the hands of a rabid fan base. Mark it Dude.

    Death Angel singer Mark Osegueda has been the singer for the new Kerry King band . How about bring Kerry King and band on 700000 Tons 2025 edition !! Also much time to straighten out the immigration issue with DRACONIAN , would be great for 2025 for them to be on the cruise also !!

    There was a rumour circulating the ship that skipper has several bay area thrash bands lined up for 2025.

    I've heard from a few sources that 2025 is the year Skipper finally realizes black metal exists. Apparently we are in for a big overcorrection to make up for past years.

    I was hanging by the merch area for my number to come up and there was a guy talking to a group of dudes for awhile. He was definitely in Witherfall or associated with them. I don't listen to them, so I'm not really familiar with them but he was talking about opening for Sonata Arctica on the acoustic tour. Anyway he out right said to these dudes that they had to come back next year because it looked like Witherfall was definitely playing the boat in 2025.

    Interesting.

    Ever increasing cabin costs + decreasing Australian Dollar + moar black metal + moar thrash = Less likelihood of me doing 70K 2025.....

    I don't mind more black metal, I DO mind more thrash (unless it's prog thrash like Voivod, Vektor or Cryptosis, otherwise hard pass)

    I'll believe more black metal when I see it. Makes sense though if you are looking for relativity small names that would still get people excited then that's the genre you want.

    I mean, it wasn't too long ago that he booked Emperor as the top headliner, with Kampfar, Carach Angren, Ihsahn, and Moonsorrow (definitely a large helping of black metal in their sound and style) also part of that lineup. Some years are indeed light on BM, though, and I would say we are due for a year with more focus on it.

    I'd love to see more thrash in '25. But, as with all things Andy, I'll believe it when it's announced.

    The problem with having a black metal-centric or thrash-centric lineup is that it is going to alienate a lot of Andy's core customers.

    Looking at the current wishlists, which admittedly is still only a small sample size, but of the top 100 - 20% Melodeath, 20% power/symphonic. Only 10% black, and 6% thrash.

    Again, only a small number (42) of requests so far, so maybe not truly representative. However looking at the 2024 figures when we had requests from 234 different people, the figures were very similar. 20% Melodeath, 25% power/symphonic. Again 10% black, and 8% thrash.

    Right, or even 2-3 exciting names from each of thrash and black metal. Variety is one of the things I enjoy best about 70k. I love being able to hop from a Soen set, to a Dark Funeral Set, to an Exodus set, and then maybe Epica, and end the night with Aborted. So, I am SURE my wishlist has a lot more melodeath names on it than thrash or black, but I'd still like better representation from those genres as well. I think quite a few people are in a similar situation. You can still increase the thrash and black metal band counts while having plenty of room for Dallas' wishlist too. ;)

    I like the cut of your Jib, but you already knew that ;)

    A thrash or black metal-centric fest I don't see happening, but having a few more bands of at least the former seems in the cards. I'll admit to being a little surprised to see thrash so little requested, but it is a fairly small sample size and while I don't consume thrash regularly, it is easily one of the most fun genres live. And while I do consume black metal regularly, it is easily one of the most inconsistent and frankly exhausting genres live. I went to Beyond the Gates a couple of years ago and after 3 days of constant black metal Sodom played and were an absolute shot in the arm, exactly what the fest needed.

    I think 2015 might have been close to Thrash-centric, or as close as we've gotten. I count 10+ bands that are thrash in that lineup (some others I am less familiar with, but think they may be Thrash as well).

    Bang-on there -there is a reason why the 2015 lineup was my least liked of ALL 70K lineups so far :P

    15 thrash bands, 6 black metal bands, and only 2 Power (Blind Guardian and Primal Fear)

    2015 was also probably my least favourite lineup, but saying "only 2 Power Metal bands" seems a little bit unfair to me, unless you are VERY strict with what you consider Power Metal :)

    Triosphere are Power Metal all the way, ok, with a Prog touch.
    Alestorm are a strange blend that to me is more Power than Folk or anything else.
    Refuge are Power / Speed Metal.
    Riot V are mostly Power Metal.

    But again... definitely my least favourite lineup so far.

    Yeah the ones you list are not ones I consider power metal, but as always exact genre is widely open to interpretation :) "Power Metal Adjacent" maybe a good analogy for them :P Just FYI this is how I classified them:
    Triosphere - i just consider them prog
    Alestorm - pirate/folk
    Refuge - Speed or Trad/Dad :P
    Riot V - heavy/speed

    Refuge is essentially Rage, and I don't know in what dimension we aren't considering Rage to be power metal.

    The most important dimension. Mine.

    If you look at the Metallian Productions roster (http://metallianprod.com/artists/), they have had a BIG strike rate the last 2 years:

    2023
    Deathless Legacy
    Fractal Universe

    2024
    Acod
    Rising Steel
    Vision Divine
    Waltari

    Thinking surely multiple again next year? Would love to see Secret Sphere and Rhapsody of Fire (oh and a return of Deathless Legacy!)

    If you want to look at what bands will not be there just look at my wishlist ;) ha ha One day i will get some more stoner/doom/desert...

    I also agree with whoever said it needs more variety... too much of anything sucks...either you run around like a nut or you are bored in the schooner bar the whole time! LOL

    janet
    Been cruisin' since 2011...haven't missed one yet!
    my wish list...COC(with pepper),Angelwitch,Spirit Adrift,the Obsessed,Down, Dangerous Toys,Pentagram,Sacred Reich,Sacrifice, Razor,Evile,Bonded by Blood,
