    For Immediate Release
    Triton Power Cruise Announces Full Line Up and Launch Dates
    Evergrey, Crimson Glory and Jon Oliva’s Pain to headline

    Houston, TX – July 27, 2009 – Triton Power Cruise has announced its full line up for the United States first progressive and power metal cruise to set sail on the Carnival Imagination on April 30- May 3, 2010 from Miami, FL.
    The lineup will include Crimson Glory (Jon Drenning, Ben Jackson, Wade Black, Jeff Lords, Dana Burnell), Sweden’s Evergrey (Tom Englund, Henrik Danhage, Rikard Zander, Jonas Ekdahl, Jari Kainulainen), and Jon Oliva’s Pain (Jon Oliva, ex-Savatage, John Zahner, Chris Kinder, Matt LaPorte, Kevin Rothney, Tom McDyne) headlining the event. In support: Seven Witches (Jack Frost, ex-Savatage, Mike LePond of Symphony X, James Rivera of Helstar, and Taz Marazz) Circle II Circle (Zak Stevens, ex-Savatage and Machines of Grace, Bill Hudson, ex-Cellador), recently relocated to the Austin, TX Brazilian band, Vougan (Carlos Zema, ex-Outworld, Acacio Carvalho, Gustavo Magalhaes, Hugo Santiago), and newcomers Eumeria (Bobby Williamson, ex-Outworld and Thought Chamber, Shawn Kascak, ex-Outworld, Adam Sagan, ex- Into Eternity, Jonny Tatum, creator of Timefall, and guitar prodigy Reece Fullwood) and The Element (fronted by Brazilian Rafa Macedo, with Mitch Stewart of Circle II Circle, Acacio Carvalho of Vougan).

    As an added bonus, Casey Grillo of Kamelot will be doing a drum clinic with Beatnik Rhythm Analyzers.

    Event producer and promoter Beth Mays said “I could not be more excited to present this incredible lineup on this first-ever event for the United States. The level of talent in each of these bands, little less combining them into one event is really going to make this vacation/concert special for any fan. Space onboard is very limited and fans should plan to book early or they may find themselves missing the boat literally.”

    “Crimson Glory is honored to be headlining the inaugural US Triton Power Cruise alongside Evergrey, Jon Oliva's Pain, Seven Witches, and Circle II Circle in April 2010.” said an excited Jon Drenning, guitarist for Crimson Glory. “We have much respect and admiration for the aforementioned bands, and we consider it a privilege to be a part of this unique show; indeed, we are looking forward to kicking ass with our longtime friends included on the roster. This will be a cruise to remember, and we know that fans of this genre will not want to miss an opportunity to be up close and personal with a great selection of some of their favorite bands. Palm trees, salty breeze and METAL on the high seas: we dare you to dream up a better vacation! So grab your flip-flops and ice cold margaritas, and climb aboard -- we're setting sail for the Bahamas! “

    "When Beth asked us to join Triton Power Cruise we did not need to think for long before saying yes. We have played numerous cruises before but nothing this cool and the thought of mixing metal and Caribbean nights works extremely well in my mind” said Tom Englund of Evergrey. “I cannot tell you how much we are looking forward to the event and also the chance to watch other bands, hanging with the fans, as well as getting to see a part of the world we never visited before."

    I can't wait for this. Aside from playing, it's going to be fun to hang out with some cool peeps and relax out at sea and on the beach!

    This is a one-of-a-kind event for the USA, quite a special weekend to be had. :)

    So is this the entire line up now, or are there still more acts waiting to be confirmed?

    We are exploring whether any additional acts can be added. Some of this will lie in the hands of Carnival and whether or not they decide to give us more cabins. Right now that's a firm 'no'- but they said no to the cruise itself and we're sailing!!!! ha.

    There MIGHT be additional bands to be added- I wouldn't say count it out- but as it is right this second- this is the lineup.

    Do the bands play more than one time or is it just one show per band?

    One show per band- but there's meet and greets and parties as well. Plus a badge upgrade for a private party (open bar) Details are forthcoming- but there's a full concert Friday and a full concert on Sunday.

    Saturday we are overnight in the Bahamas and since this IS a vacation as well I know people will want to enjoy the beach and the excursions. So the plan is for a party (show is logistically not in the cards) that everyone can come to that night.

    Wow, finally some real evidence of the rumored "power metal cruise!" This will be so amazing, I can hardly comprehend it. I've not been this excited for a concert in years! My husband and I were recently married but we didn't get a chance to go on a honeymoon. We were hoping the power metal cruise would happen so we could take the trip of a lifetime for our special getaway. Well, looks like we have the option now, so I hope we can make it work.

    Great job on the awesome bands and the huge amount of planning that must have gone into this! On top of the cool bands, it's a special treat to see so many of my friends are getting a chance to play on this unique event. I'd love to spend a weekend at sea with you folks! lol!

    The beach party in the Bahamas sounds like a dream! I can't see any good reason to miss this awesome event :)

    p.s. clever name ;-)

    Well, first n foremost- CONGRATS Mrs. SwordLord. : )

    Second- yes- the power metal cruise is real and a-happenin'! What you're reading as the trip of a lifetime (which I agree! ha) has more to be announced on top of it.

    Booking has started so please don't wait too long as a sellout situation is anticipated.

    Let me know if you have any questions

    I saw the excursions cost extra. Does the beach party cost extra?
