60 Bands, 4 Days, 1 Cruise Ship, and only 3000 Tickets. This is 70000TONS OF METAL™, The Original, The World’s Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise!

On 70000TONS OF METAL™ you get unrestricted festival access to all 120 live shows on board, 70000TONS™ OF KARAOKE until sunrise, Jamming With Waters In International Waters – the Official 70000TONS OF METAL™ All Star Jam which writes Heavy Metal History every year, Clinics and Work-Shops with the musicians, our infamous Belly Flop Contest, Shore Excursions with your favorite artists, and much more!

Everyone on board is a VIP, we don’t have assigned seating (this is a Heavy Metal Cruise after all), and most importantly the bars on our ship never close – you heard us, bars that never close!

Our Canadian Scouting Party Has Been Attacked!

While on our way back across the Atlantic we received word from our scouting party in Canada: Before they had a chance to leave the capital city, they were attacked by an ANNIHILATOR! Sailors, please welcome another Canadian Metal Legend on board 70000TONS OF METAL, The World’s Biggest Floating Heavy Metal Festival!

But that’s not all… as a special treat, Jeff Waters will be holding an exclusive Guitar Clinic on board!

Are We All Getting A Little EXCITER yet?

70000TONS OF METAL, The World’s Biggest Floating Heavy Metal Festival has reached the Canadian East Coast. Before turning the ship around, we dropped off a scouting party to explore this vast country. Given secret orders, they headed West to the nation’s capital of Ottawa where they received a raving welcome. Are we all getting a little EXCITER yet?


Injected With Deadly Toxin: Please Welcome VENOM!

To travel from the North Sea into the Atlantic Ocean, you must sail around the British Isles. Before doing so we decided to visit a town in North East England that we are familiar with from last year: Newcastle, and what a welcome we got! On arrival we all got injected by a deadly toxin! Sailors: We now all have VENOM on board!

70000TONS OF METAL, The World’s Biggest Floating Heavy Metal Festival now sails through the Channel into the Atlantic. Our course: Straight West.


Warm Up With Some PRETTY MAIDS!

It’s getting to be winter up here in the Baltics. The days are getting shorter and you have to wait long periods to see the sun. Tired of waiting in Finland, we sailed over to Denmark. After we passed through the Great Belt we made a short stop in the city of Horsens. We should have gone there earlier, because you know what we found? Some really PRETTY MAIDS! Full steam ahead through the Skagerrak!
