On Thursday April 16th, 2015 the second editon of the Full Metal Cruise
ended successfully after 6 days of metal madness at the Harbour of Palma de Mallorca!
Suntanned and happy roundabout 2000 metalheads left the "Mein Schiff 1"
after almost 3000 minutes of live music from more than 20 bands, amazing onshore trips and offshore framework programe.
The music was a blast whether it be onshore or offshore!
During the 6 days lasting journey the Mein Schiff 1
was rocked by the following artists:
Alestorm, Axxis, Bembers, Blaas of Glory, Beyond The Black, Blaze Bayley, Doro, Dragonforce, Endstille, J.B.O., Mambo Kurt, Onkel Tom, the Pressgeng, Hammerfall, Melissa van Fleet Russkaja, Saltatio Mortis, Sodom, Stormwarrior, Subway to Sally, Tankard and Uli Jon Roth.
A lot of these performances will stay for a long time in the memories of guests and crew alike as for example the unique and amazing underwater guitar solo performance of Dragonforce guitarist Herman Li. (Video footage will follow soon!)
Also during the onshore concerts at Ibiza and Palma de Mallorca bands like U.D.O, Leo Jiménez
(at Castle Dalt Vita) as well as Baron Rojo
, and Fyre!
(Club Es Gremi) rocked the local venues!
Besides the concerts the extensive framework programe guaranted even more fun and variation with metal karaoke, readings, cinema, musician workshops and a tattoo artist on board.
Last but not least it was possible to win amazing prizes like VIP tickets, guitars, a signed sea map of the travel route (signed by the bands) and much more at the tombola.
