#SurvivorsAsk: Interview AMORPHIS for!

We are giving 70000TONS OF METAL™ Survivors the chance to interview Heavy Metal Icons in person when they play in your neighborhood for the segment called #SurvivorsAsk!

Here is how it works: we select a tour stop from one of your favorite 70000TONS OF METAL™ Artists (past or present) and we will enlist one of our Survivors to conduct an interview. If you are a 70000TONS OF METAL™ Survivor and live in the area, tell us why YOU would be the perfect candidate to conduct this interview by submitting a video to Instagram and tagging @70000tons, #70000tons and #SurvivorsAsk. If you are selected as the winner, simply get yourself to the show and we will get you plus one friend on the Guest List and organize the rest!

AMORPHIS, who sailed with us on board 70000TONS OF METAL 2017, will be interviewed by one lucky Survivor in Montreal, QC, Canada on March 17th, 2017.

Submissions must be received before 5PM EDT on Thursday, March 16, 2017.

If you are not eligible to interview the band, we would still love your input! Head over to the Official 70000TONS OF METAL™ Forum and post one question YOU would like to ask AMORPHIS in the official #SurvivorsAsk thread!

Official 70000TONS OF METAL Forum Maintenance Complete

Thank you for your continued patience, Sailors!

We have completed Maintenance for our Official 70000TONS OF METAL Forum and it is back online… Clear your cache if you are still seeing the maintenance page.



Hosted by Jeff Waters of ANNIHILATOR, Jamming With Waters In International Waters – the official 70000TONS OF METAL™ All Star Jam – once again wrote a new chapter in Heavy Metal History when a spectacular lineup of the musicians on board 70000TONS OF METAL™ 2017 teamed up to perform classic Metal Anthems!

Prior to sailing there was a lot of online discussion amongst Sailors about what they could do to provide aid to those in need in Haiti, which inspired the crew at 70000TONS OF METAL™ to make our own contribution – we will be auctioning off a very unique Michael Schenker 2004 model Dean Guitar. This legendary axe was signed by most of the world class artists who participated in the jam: Elize Ryd (AMARANTHE), Esa Holopainen (AMORPHIS), Jeff Waters / Fabio Alessandrini / Rich Hinks / Aaron Homma (ANNIHILATOR), Charlie Benante / Frank Bello / Scott Ian (ANTHRAX), Ben Ash (CARCASS), Mark Osegueda / Will Carroll (DEATH ANGEL), Lisa Cuthbert (DRACONIAN), Jon Gallagher (DYING FETUS), Van Williams (GHOST SHIP OCTAVIUS), Axel Ritt (GRAVE DIGGER), Bobby Blitz (OVERKILL), Per Nilsson (SCAR SYMMETRY), Fabio D’Amore (SERENITY), Rich Ward (STUCK MOJO), Alex Skolnick / Steve DiGiorgio / Gene Hoglan (TESTAMENT), Thomas Vikström / Linnéa Vikström (THERION), Russ Bergquist (TOUCH THE SUN), and Steven Wussow / Philip Restemeier (XANDRIA).

All proceeds from the auction will be donated to the people of Haiti via Direct Relief. Direct Relief is a non governmental, nonsectarian, and not-for- profit humanitarian aid organization with a mission to improve the health and lives of people affected by poverty or emergencies by delivering medicines and medical supplies to people in all 50 U.S. states and in 80 countries. Since 2010, Direct Relief has provided over $204 million in critically needed medical aid to over 200 healthcare facilities and organizations caring for Haiti’s most vulnerable communities. For more information about Direct Relief please visit

The 70000TONS OF METAL™ Dean Guitar Auction for Haiti will begin March 5, 2017 at 2PM Eastern time, running until March 12 at 3PM Eastern time – From Europe this is 20:00 CET, or 19:00 GMT
