Motörhead, Megadeth and Anthrax – three of the greatest Heavy Metal bands in the world – will perform at the first annual Motörhead’s Motörboat cruise on board the Carnival Ecstasy from September 22-26, 2014.

In addition to these three rock giants, “The Loudest Boat In The World” will also feature performances from Zakk Wylde, Jim Breuer, Danko Jones, Fireball Ministry, Wilson, and some big surprises with more bands to be announced soon.

Motörhead’s Motörboat will sail from Miami, visiting the ports of Key West, Florida and Cozumel just off Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. While on board, guests will have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to interact with band members and will see unforgettable performances on various stages throughout the ship.

Tickets for Motörhead’s Motörboat go on sale Tuesday, March 18 at Noon ET. The event website–www.MotorheadCruise.com–will launch later this week with full details and cabin pricing.

Motörhead founder Lemmy Kilmister proclaims, “This will be everything you’ve come to expect from a night out with us, except even louder, with more great bands and no way of escaping! If you thought waves could rock a boat, you’ve got another thing coming with this lovely little outing!”

Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine says, “There never has and never will be another cruise like Motörboat cruise. Come on a thrashing voyage with Motörhead, Megadeth, Anthrax, Zakk Wylde and all Lemmy’s friends. This is the coolest way to ever see a Metal concert.”

Scott Ian of Anthrax adds, “Anthrax, Motörhead and Megadeth at sea??? To quote Chief Brody [Jaws], ‘We’re going to need a bigger boat.'”

“It’s truly an honor to partner with one of the most iconic bands in rock music to deliver a one of a kind fan experience for ‘Motorheadbangers’ from around the globe,” says event producer Alan Koenig of ASK4 Entertainment.

Motörhead–the world’s biggest and baddest rock & roll band of all time–released their mammoth 21st studio album Aftershock in October 2013. Aftershock is one of Motörhead’s best-selling and highest-charting albums in 20 years, debuting at #22 on the Billboard200. Through tenacity, hard work, and a deep-seated ability to produce an original, face-melting sound, Motörhead–Lemmy Kilmister(bass, vocals), Phil Campbell (guitar) and Mikkey Dee (drums)–has become one of the most popular bands in the world with a fanbase that is second to none.

In a career nearing 30 years, Heavy Metal titans Megadeth have sold more than 38 million albums worldwide, earning five consecutive platinum albums and numerous accolades along the way, including 11 Grammy nominations. The band’s latest studio album, Super Collider, features vocalist/guitarist/founder Dave Mustaine once again reunited with guitarist Chris Broderick, bassist David Ellefson, and drummer Shawn Drover.

Released in June 2013, Super Collider debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard 200, Megadeth’s highest chart debut since 1994’s Youthanasia. In April, Megadeth is set to embark on a world tour in over 25 countries across four continents. The tour follows a first-ever performance at Copley Symphony Hall on April 12, where Dave Mustaine will collaborate with the San Diego Symphony.

Since the September 2011 release of Worship Music, five-time Grammy-nominated Anthrax has experienced a tremendous comeback. “Classic era” vocalist Joey Belladonna rejoined the lineup in the spring of 2010, fronting for the band on The Big Four shows across Europe, at NY’s Yankee Stadium and at the SoCal Coachella site.

In 2012, Anthrax–Joey Belladonna (vocals), Scott Ian (guitar),Charlie Benante (drums) and Frank Bello (bass)–became the first Metal band to have its music played on Mars when its “Got The Time” was chosen by NASA to wake up the Mars Rover. The band is currently writing and demoing new material for the follow up to Worship Music that is expected out late 2014/early 2015.

The Carnival Ecstasy, which recently underwent a multi-million dollar refurbishment, features a tropical-themed resort-style main pool area, multiple dining options (including a 24-hour pizzeria), 12,000-square-foot Spa Carnival health club, a jogging track, as well as 12 lounges, bars and nightspots.

Zakk Wylde’s Black Label Society Releases New Album ‘Catacombs Of The Black Vatican’

BLS

Guitar icon and Black Label Society frontman Zakk Wylde has announced a brand new studio album entitled “Catacombs of the Black Vatican” released April 7th via Mascot Label Group in the UK and Europe.

“Catacombs of the Black Vatican” is the first all-new Black Label Society studio album since “The Order of the Black” (2009), which debuted at #4 on the Billboard Top 200 chart.

In 2013, the band released the 2-CD set and DVD “Unblackened” which found Black Label Society in a mellower mood in a performance filmed at Club Nokia in Los Angeles.

Since their inception in the late 1990s, Black Label Society, formed by guitar legend Zakk Wylde, has been at the forefront of the rock genre. Their taste for hard riffs and blazing solos has resulted in a slew of hugely successful albums and a reputation as one of the most powerful live bands of their generation.

Zakk Wylde, hailed as one rock’s greatest guitar heroes, served as Ozzy Osbourne’s guitarist for over 20 years in addition to his work with BLS. This collaboration led to a string of multi-platinum albums, including Osbourne’s biggest selling “No More Tears,” for which Wylde wrote all the music.

Recently bestowed with such accolades including “Metal Guru” from the UK’s recently held Classic Rock Awards, “Golden God” by Metal Hammer and the “Best Guitarist” Award from Revolver Magazine, Wylde has proven time and time again that his songwriting, guitar prowess, and on-stage persona, along with his larger-than-life personality, have made him a force to be reckoned with.

Black Label Society continues to captivate fans around the globe. “Catacombs of the Black Vatican” promises to be another incredible chapter in the band’s catalogue.
