After Hurricane Irene has delayed our arrival at the North American East Coast, we finally anchored in the Hudson River. Welcome to The Big Apple! We have arrived on a virgin continent. Please welcome our first American band on board: VIRGIN STEELE!
Last night we cleared The Channel. After sailing a few hundred miles into the North Atlantic we received orders to change our course to West South-West.
While 70000TONS OF METAL, The World’s Biggest Floating Heavy Metal Festival has left Göteborg and is now sailing through the Skagerak our 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.
70000TONS OF METAL, The World’s Biggest Floating Heavy Metal Festival has arrived at the biggest port in Scandinavia and Sweden’s gateway to the West: Göteborg. Time to let the HAMMERFALL! Shall we stay in this city of long maritime tradition or are we sailing onwards? You shall know soon.
We have arrived in Stockholm, Sweden where we were invited to a DARK FUNERAL! We are especially proud to be the first to announce “NACHTGARM” as their new vocalist and member of the horde!
Now 70000TONS OF METAL, The World’s Biggest Floating Heavy Metal Festival, is sailing through the Øresund. Where will our next port of call be?
