At approximately 7 p.m. on October 22, 2011, a small cruise boat called the Jewel left the Skyport Marina in New York City. On board were a gaggle of metalheads and four very good metal bands — Kvelertak, Skeletonwitch, Tombs, and Psychic Limb. Also on board was a dude named (((unartig))), armed with A/V recording equipment. He vividly caught portions of all four performances on film. And by “vivid”, I mean that he caught the look, the feel, and the rampant energy of these performances. You feel like you’re right in the middle of the mayhem. Shit, I can almost smell the sweat and the beer just from watching these clips.
I’ve put all the clips after the jump. These are definitely worth the time.

What’s with the cruise craze lately? I’m not against it…it just seems like a weird idea to me….
Though I admit I’m a bit interested in a metal concert on a Vomit Rocket. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vomit_Comet) Yes, for once, Vomit and Rocket are in the same sentences and they’re not referring to what I did to your mom last night after drinking a bottle of Everclear.
You ignoramus. Vomit Rocket is a band name. They’ll be on the next NCS tour, if they mix some grind with what they’re doing now.
Vomet Comet is what the Wiki link is about. Leave my mom out of this.
Oh fucking damnit, I AM an ignoramus.
I’m gonna just blame it on physical exhaustion and slowly slink into the shadows to lurk and play with my rocket to see if I can make it vomit comets…
Who knows, but I say keep it up (as long as it doesn’t get diluted). 70K was awesome and looking forward to it again. Barge to Hell should be even better (for my tastes)
Fuck yes. Kvelertaaaaak! Seeing this tour in a few weeks, can’t fucking wait.
Judging from this video (which is probably my favorite of the four), they put on a hellacious live show. I would REALLY like to see them.
Fuck, just noticed that there’s a Grave, General Surgery and Vicious Art gig the same night. Grave will be doing a special set, the entire “Into the Grave” album, and it is the last Vicious Art gig ever.
Dammit, now I have to decide which one to see!
Damn, that’s a vicious choice. But it sounds like the Grave show will be a one-of-a-kind thing, plus it’s fucken Grave. I know which one I’d pick. 🙂
I hate when I miss cool stuff at home.Gonna miss the Metalsuckfest, missed ComicCon, and I missed this. Bummer.
