We Were Met With An ONSLAUGHT!

Today we sailed from The Netherlands through the English Channel, turned North and then East into the Bristol Channel, but we were met with such an ONSLAUGHT that we decided to sail back to the European mainland!

ONSLAUGHT will celebrate their 30th Anniversary on board 70000TONS OF METAL, The World’s Biggest Heavy Metal Festival! To commemorate this event, they will play two very special sets: For the first show they will play The Force in its entirety… the second show will be a best of 30 years of violence set.


All Across Canada To Draw Some Blood!

Canada is a vast country and our scouts had to go all the way to Victoria on beautiful Vancouver Island to draw some new blood…
3 INCHES OF BLOOD to be exact! Please welcome some more Canucks on board 70000TONS OF METAL, The World’s Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise!

…and the ship back in The Netherlands, where will it sail next?


Jamming With Waters In International Waters

Your Trip Of A Lifetime Begins In 6 Weeks!

After almost getting lost in the rough waters of the North Sea, we were drawn to The Netherlands by some symphonic sounds… the sound of DELAIN! As every year we need some Dutch on board… hang on, the Dutch? Aren’t they a real HEIDEVOLK?

So who will be the last lucky 13 on board, and what the hell are our scouting parties in Eastern Europe and freezing cold Canada doing?


South South-West from Moscow?

While 70000TONS OF METAL, The World’s Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise is currently cruising in the North Sea, we heard from our Scouts who were last in Moscow that they would be heading South South-West… You may need more then a map to figure that one out… keep guessing!
