Next Departure


Sailing North Through The Øresund…

Despite coming under heavy fire, our second scouting party decided to stay ashore. 70000TONS OF METAL, The Original, The World’s Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise continued to sail north waiving goodbye to the Øresund Bridge, the longest combined road and rail bridge in Europe. Will our scouting party remain in Denmark or will they cross this marvel of construction? If they cross, do you know what country they will be in?


We Got Hit By Heavy ARTILLERY!

After crossing the Baltic Sea we dropped off another Scouting Party in Denmark to look for some pretty girls. As soon as they set foot on land, they got shelled by heavy ARTILLERY.

Since 2015 marks the 30th anniversary of their debut album, ARTILLERY will play Fear Of Tomorrow in its entirety as one of their two shows on board 70000TONS OF METAL, The Original, The World’s Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise.

Shall we leave our second Scouting Party in Denmark and sail on without them?


We Left The Port Of Helsinki… But…

Last night 70000TONS OF METAL, The Original, The World’s Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise set sail from Helsinki. Due to popular request we left a scouting party behind. They will gather some more Finns to join our line-up before the arctic winter arrives…

Our course: South-West

Let’s Resurrect A 70000TONS OF METAL Tradition!

As many of you know CHIMAIRA have called it quits. After weeks of negotiations, even our Skipper could not convince them to do one final show on board…

On to better news: Today marks 4 months to the departure of The Original, The World’s Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise! Therefore we think it’s time to resurrect an old 70000TONS OF METAL tradition: Let’s sail out of Finland across the Seven Seas and visit many Countries to complete our line-up. But not before welcoming some Finnish friends! Please Welcome AMORPHIS on board 70000TONS OF METAL! Do you think we should recruit some more Finns before setting sail in the Baltic Sea?
