Amusements for the Sick
Along with days and nights filled with performances, specially curated activities will be a part of the ride, too, including exclusive Lamb of God experiences. Many times you'll be up-close-and-personal participating with artists from the lineup. More activities will be announced between now and sailing, so stay tuned.
Conversation and Q&A with Randy Blythe
The Lamb of God frontman will enthrall the fans as he takes everyone behind-the-scenes and into the brains of Randy, and takes the hot seat to answer all of YOUR burning questions.
Guests will submit questions prior to sailing, and a select number of guests will get to ask their question live to Randy on board. More details will be announced, so stay tuned.
Heavy Metal Trivia Night hosted by Josè Mangin
This one's for the true metalheads, if you think you've got the smarts over your fellow Headbangers. Teams of 4-6 will group up on board and compete through multiple rounds during Heavy Metal Trivia hosted by Josè Mangin, to win prizes (and bragging rights) as the first Heavy Metal Trivia Champion aboard Headbangers Boat.
Drum-Off with Art Cruz
Calling all drummers of the Headbangers Boat, this is the competition for you. We want to see your spot-on rhythm as you compete against fellow Headbangers for the crowd, judged by Art Cruz and a panel of special guests.
All guests interested in participating will submit a video showing off their best skills. Stay tuned for more details on how to enter closer to sailing.
Poker Tournament Finals with John Campbell
John Campbell is ready to own the tables with his fellow Headbangers. Make it to the final rounds and you'll play against John. Stay tuned for more details on entry fees and how to participate on board.
Headbanger's Boat 2023 is your chance to immerse in the metal like no place else. One way to do that is by getting some in-real-life face time with artists from our lineup at Autograph Sessions. Bring a cherished item from home or get a new fave from the onboard merch store and get it covered with signatures.
Harsh Harmonies Karaoke
When you've gotten your fill of watching your favorite bands melt your face off, get on the stage yourself at Harsh Harmonies Karaoke. Rage here together, maybe sing a deadly song.
For a long-lasting memento of your incredible vacation, stop by the onboard tattoo shop and get inked.
Tattoo artists will be announced closer to sailing.

Movie Screening of Making Of Omens
The Making Of: Omens is a short film documenting the recording of the Lamb of God album, recorded in the live room at Henson Studios. The documentary includes four full song performances: “Nevermore”, “Omens”, “Vanishing”, and “Gomorrah”.
“In February 2022, we entered Henson Studios in Los Angeles, CA to begin recording our 9th studio album, what would become Omens. We recorded this record the old-fashioned way… with five of us, in a room together, playing music. We filmed the entire process.” – Lamb Of God
