Lemmy: setting sail

Motörhead have joined in the floating festival craze, and in their inaugural stab at it, they’ve smashed it.

It was revealed last month that the first ever Motörboat would be setting sail later this year, and it’s now been confirmed that the cruise will take place from September 22-26, and is boasting some amazing names.

Megadeth, Zakk Wylde, Anthrax and Motörhead themselves are all confirmed for the lineup, as well as some pretty sweet smaller names, with plenty more set to be announced.

In Flames: setting sail at 70000 Tons

Basically, when we get bored at work, sometimes we’ll dick about on Spotify for a bit and make an Ultimate And All-Consuming Playlist.

Today, Web Ed Merl is that man, and today he’s gone and made a playlist of Swedish melodeath titans In Flames. Don’t worry, it has loads of old stuff on it before they went all singy and stuff too.

Check it out below…
