Vancouver BC / Miami FL / Hanover, Germany – August 13, 2011
While 70000TONS OF METAL, The World’s Biggest Floating Heavy Metal Festival has left Göteborg and is now sailing through the Skagerak their scouting party in Germany could not pass by Frankfurt am Main without picking up a huge TANKARD of beer that will celebrate it’s 30th birthday on board next year. Then they went onwards to The Netherlands to get GOD DETHRONED who will play one of their very last shows on board 70000TONS OF METAL 2012.
Make no mistake, 70000TONS OF METAL is not your grandma’s cruise. It’s also not one of the cruises that share the ship with normal cruise guests. This is an all heavy metal cruise! Can you imagine that? A whole luxury cruise ship full of metalheads? And since there is no backstage area you will have the opportunity to mingle side-by-side with the artists in this incredibly fan-friendly scenario that has no comparison. It’s like everyone has a backstage pass!
So far 17 out of a total of 40 bands on board are known:
MY DYING BRIDE
