On the first night of the cruise, one of the most heavy metal moments of all time will occur when headliners Slayer perform outside on the deck stage of Norwegian Sky under a red blood moon.September 28 at 10:47 PM Eastern Time marks the fourth and final lunar eclipse (sometimes referred to as a “blood moon”) of the current lunar tetrad (a series of four consecutive lunar eclipses with six full moons in between). It is one of only eight tetrads during the 21st century. Some believe this occurrence is a fulfillment of the “Blood Moon Prophecy” and signals “The Rapture,” as described in the Bible in Acts 2:20 and Revelation 6:12. Few bands come close to matching the intensity that Slayer brings to its live shows, with songs that mirror the turmoil and aberrations of our society, so the performance could not be more apt.
That sounds like the most metal thing I have ever heard in my entire life. Here's hoping there's a lot of great camera equipment aboard that ship to get footage of this once-only event!
