News: Motörhead's Motörboat - 40th anniversary cruise details











Guests on the second annual Motörhead's Motörboat will experience once-in-a-lifetime events with two ultimate heavy metal icons.

On the first night of the cruise, one of the most heavy metal moments of all time will occur when headlinersSlayer perform outside on the deck stage of Norwegian Sky under a red blood moon. September 28 at10:47 PM Eastern Time marks the fourth and final lunar eclipse (sometimes referred to as a “blood moon”) ofthe current lunar tetrad (a series of four consecutive lunar eclipses with six full moons in between). It is one of only eight tetrads during the 21st century. Some believe this occurrence is a fulfillment of the “Blood Moon Prophecy” and signals “The Rapture,” as described in the Bible in Acts 2:20 and Revelation 6:12. Few bands come close to matching the intensity that Slayer brings to its live shows, with songs that mirror the turmoil and aberrations of our society, so the performance could not be more apt.

In the spirit of the evening, while waiting to see if the “end of the world” prophecy comes true, guests will celebrate “Blood Red Night” by donning something crimson, while enjoying Slayer’s intense performance during this rare astrological phenomenon.

Later in the week (Thursday, October 1), Motörboat guests will celebrate 40 years of the world’s biggest and baddest rock & roll band of all time--along with the release of Motörhead’s 22nd studio album, Bad Magic (due out August 28 on UDR Music/Motörhead Music)--during Motörhead’s 40th Anniversary Bash. Since imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, guests will be invited to dress in their Motörhead best, or even as Lemmy, Philor Mikkey themselves, while enjoying cake, libations, and of course lots of heavy music in honor of the rock legends.

Motörhead founder Lemmy Kilmister says, "40 years of Motörhead will be celebrated aboard the Motörboat, so boys and girls, you know what THAT means, right? There won't be a dry throat in the house!”

Motörhead's Motörboat--fueled by Monster Energy--will embark on its second voyage from Port MiamiSeptember 28 on Norwegian Sky, with stops in Nassau and the private picturesque island of Great Stirrup Cay in The Bahamas before returning to Miami on October 2. Visit to reserve a stateroom.

Additional performers have been added to the Motörhead's Motörboat lineup, which already features some of the greatest heavy rock bands in the world. New to the roster are Corrosion of Conformity (recently reunited with original vocalist/guitarist Pepper Keenan), The Shrine, Others, No Words (featuring guitar prodigy Nik Kai), Butterside, Sonia Harley, The Dead Deads, along with comedians Brian Posehn and Big Jay Oakerson, and late night comedy and band interviews with The S.D.R. Show (Sex, Drugs & Rock-n-Roll Show) with Big Jay Oakerson & Ralph Sutton.

The full lineup for Motörhead's Motörboat is as follows: Slayer, Motörhead, Anthrax, Suicidal Tendencies,Hatebreed, Exodus, Corrosion of Conformity, Phil Campbell’s All Starr Band, Crobot, Motor Sister,KYNG, Brian Posehn, Fireball Ministry, Huntress, Big Jay Oakerson, The Shrine, Others, No Words,Budderside, Sonia Harley, and The Dead Deads.

Motörhead's Motörboat offers guests a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to share an experience with their favorite bands and to see unforgettable performances on various stages throughout the ship and on the island of Great Stirrup Cay.

Norwegian Sky offers 13 complimentary and specialty dining options, 12 bars and lounges, a coffee bar, an outdoor pool, and five hot tubs. While onboard, guests can try their luck in the Sky Club Casino, relax in the onboard spa and get their heart pumping in the fitness center or full basketball court.

“…a metalhead’s dream. Think Hard Rock Hell-with-hot-tubs.

On the high seas. With a hard on.”

This model comes loaded with 57/08 treble and bass pickups which provide clarity with a distinctive, warm midrange. The control layout features one volume and one tone control and a PRS 5-way blade pickup selector.

The “Vine” McCarty features an artist grade figured maple top, thick mahogany back for increased resonance, a 22-fret, 25” scale length ‘Pattern’ figured maple neck with rosewood fretboard, Mother of Pearl 30th Anniversary bird inlays with Paua/Paua Heart Vine, Phase III locking tuners, and PRS stoptail with brass inserts (hybrid hardware). McCarty models feature 58/15 treble and bass pickups paired with one volume and one push/pull tone control and a PRS 3-way toggle pickup selector. 58/15 pickups provide a vintage style sound with exceptional clarity and a focused midrange.

Both “Vine” models are available in the following finishes, which all include stained maple necks: Faded Whale Blue, Black Gold Burst, Fire Red Burst, Charcoal, Blood Orange, Trampas Green, Makena Blue, and Violet Smokeburst.

The Vine guitars were introduced to PRS dealers and enthusiasts at the company’s 30th Anniversary factory event.

This was recorded right before Andrew and I went on tour for "Tour Because Awesome." We wanted to make a video, so we turned on the camera, plugged the guitar in and set up a mic. We then played every note on the fretboard and made a bunch of different noises on the guitar for 23 minutes. Which you can see in the full take I upload on my second channel.

Here's the whole take:

After getting this massive amount of raw footage with no song written or even a genre planned, Andrew then took all this into his magic laptop device and much editing later these 2 songs existed.

Dave Mustaine: Is Announced As The Golden God

Dave Mustaine Is Announced As The Golden God

For the first time in the history of The Metal Hammer Golden Gods an award recipient is being named upfront of the night. The Golden God Award (Sponsored By Orange Amplification) will be presented to the legendary Dave Mustaine.

Taking place at IndigO2 in London on 15th June 2015, the Orange Amplification presents the Metal Hammer Golden Gods in association with World Of Warships once again has the fans at its core and brings them together with the artists, shoulder to shoulder, like no other event.

Dave Mustaine is best known as the frontman and creative force behind Megadeth, the band who in June 2015 celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the release of their seminal album “Killing Is My Business..And Business Is Good!” (originally released on the 12th June 1985).

Formed in 1983, Megadeth are one of the true pioneers and innovators of metal music. The band have sold more than 38 million albums worldwide, earning numerous accolades including 11 Grammy® nominations and scoring five consecutive platinum albums—including 1992’s two-million-selling “Countdown to Extinction”. The band have released iconic albums such as “Peace Sells..But Who’s Buying?”, “Rust In Peace”, “Countdown to Extinction” and “Th1rt3en“. The list of classic songs penned by Megadeth is long and varied, including essential tracks such as “Killing Is My Business (And Business Is Good)!”, “Wake Up Dead”, “In My Darkest Hour”, “Holy Wars…The Punishment Is Due”, “Symphony Of Destruction”, “A Tout Le Monde”, and many many more…

Megadeth’s founder, leader and primal guitar-slinger and lyricist Dave Mustaine is still a key creative force in the metal world. The band released their 14th studio album, “Super Collider, in 2013 through Mustaine’s own Tradecraft label. Megadeth have just finished recording a new studio album – due for release later in 2015.

The term is oft overused, but Dave Mustaine is a bona fide LEGEND and the Metal Hammer Golden Gods are hugely honoured to have him accept the Golden God Award in 2015.

"I am truly humbled to receive this award, and to be recognized by your peers for your accomplishments, is almost as gratifying as not being recognized by the police for your accomplices." - Dave Mustaine

"The Metal Hammer Golden God awards are a 21-gun salute to all that is great in our world" says Alexander Milas, Metal Hammer editor-in-chief. "Dave Mustaine is nothing less than the living embodiment of dedication to the craft, and it's an absolute honour to celebrate 30 years of Megadeth's earth-shaking debut with one of metal's greatest guitar heroes."

Orange ambassadors feature extensively on The Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards nominees list. They include:

Best New Band: Beartooth, Marmozets, King Parrot
Best UK Band: Architects, While She Sleeps
Best International Band: Slipknot, Mastodon
Breakthrough: Bury Tomorrow
Best Underground: Winterfylleth, Purson
