Quite frankly, I can’t wait for this rock and roll cruise fad to go the way of the Dodo.
A press release we received last night claims a more extreme metal cruise is on the way called Barge to Hell.
“This December, 40 of the most extreme Metal Bands and 2,000 headbangers from around the world will go to the Caribbean to take over a luxury cruise ship for a 5 day and 4 night trip to the undead,” says the release.
“Make no mistake, this is not one of the cruises where you share the ship with regular cruise guests… It’s like everyone has a backstage pass and you can mingle side-by-side with the artists in this incredibly fan-friendly scenario that has no comparison.”
Who is playing? Artillery, Enslaved, Hackneyed, Hypocrisy, Krisiun, Loudblast, Moonspell, Morgoth, Paradise Lost, Possessed, Rotting Christ, Sacred Reich, Sanctuary, Sepultura, Six Feet Under, and Sodom.
That sounds cool, but cruises are whack. You come back ten times heavier than you were when you left; you get drunk all fucking day; and you get to touch land every other day for 20 minutes. That shit sucks.
