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.
