Circle II Circle, Arsis and The Absence are the latest confirmed acts for 70000 Tons Of Metal, the world's biggest floating heavy metal festival.

70000 Tons Of Metal will sail Monday, January 24th aboard the Royal Caribbean Majesty of the Seas luxury cruise ship from Miami, FL to Cozumel, Mexico and will return four days later on Friday, January 28th.

Saxon will play two unique shows. One night they will perform the Wheels Of Steel LP in its entirety and on a different night, for the second show, they will play Strong Arm Of The Law from start to finish. Also Testament will play two very unique shows on board. At the first show they will prove their titan trash status by playing The Legacy album in its entirety; at the second show they will play The New Order album in full.

Funny idea. Maybe in a few years if they continue this.
Elodie Artour - 15.01.2011 at 15:26  
The idea is indeed quite funny. Hope they succeed, though.

necrovamp - 15.01.2011 at 17:29  
Im so jelous of anyone who goes on this. im gonna have to save up for a few years before i can go!
Ag Fox - 15.01.2011 at 17:57  
Saving up for 3 months just 4 four days worth of thrills... don't think I'd go to it yet. Maybe when I get a proper job

Considering the horrible year and a half we've had, I'd say the chances of a shipwreck of Titanic porportions are 50/1.
ForeverDarkWoods - 15.01.2011 at 18:51  
I like the fact that everyone seems to think this is something completely new and innovative. In Sweden we have had metal cruises every year. This year's Sweden Rock cruise has got Doro, for example.
Dominus - 15.01.2011 at 19:10  
I wanna be there
MetalSpider - 15.01.2011 at 20:41  
Wow! A lot of great bands on this cruise! The ship better be sturdy and the weather great!
Fat & Sassy! - 15.01.2011 at 21:43  
Talk about friggin' crrrrruuuuiiissssiiiinnnn'. XD Holy shit. And Uli Jon Roth is gonna bet there too?! Wish I could go. D:

Only one week left! I can't wait. Its going to be awsome!

I used to work for Royal Caribbean ('01 - '03) and I know Cozumel quite well. For anyone lucky enough to be a part of this - a tip:

When you disembark at the Cozumel port, hire a jeep (remember to take your driver's license with) and take a trip to the other side of the island.

Here you'll find the true spirit of the island, awesome Mexican cuisine, proper tequila and friendly locals.

Or alternatively stay and enjoy overpriced shooters at soulless commercial franchises like Carlos & Charlie's or Fat Tuesday with all the overweight good-old-boys.

Hey, but whatever you decide to do, enjoy you lucky bastards.

PS. tell Ensiferum our ears are still ringing down here in South Africa .

Thanks for making us jealous. Please take loads of pics and score some chicks (and take pics of said chicks) and post 'em here, will ya?

Ew...Twilight of the Gods doing Bathory masterpieces? That's as bad as hearing Dragonforce perform Slayer masterpieces.

Regardless of that small quibble, this event will be awesome. It's a shame that I lack the funds to go on this cruise, but maybe I'll be able to participate when another event like this is hosted in the near future. I just pray that this cruise doesn't sink, for too many awesome bands will be on it.
Hugoj33 - 16.01.2011 at 00:53  
Not many metalheads can pay $666
sbgmetal - 16.01.2011 at 00:55  
Dayum the whole concept sounds sooooooo fuking cool wish i could have gone
INÆRIS - 16.01.2011 at 02:43  
Just like MelloBoat, except without my favorite bands.
Don_Doom - 16.01.2011 at 04:17  
Why there isn´t a Metal Spring Break?
LeChron James - 16.01.2011 at 05:45  
Didn't we invent planes so we wouldn't have to travel via boat anymore? Cruises are like floating prisons with sorta better food and just as much involuntary anal. Except this one is gonna have a shit load of metal bands playing.

Oh yeah, and have fun ending up in Mexico! And being kidnapped by the Sinaloa cartel, tortured, killed, having your entrails removed and replaced with bricks of dope and shipped across the border. All cruises should end that way!

This cruise would be a blast I might do it one year. I love the ocean.
Illuminate - 16.01.2011 at 07:18  
Peace everyone. I'm on my way there! cant fuckin' wait.
Daggon - 16.01.2011 at 10:12  
Now the seas will tremble...
The Shape 1973 - 16.01.2011 at 14:51  
I know it is no where near Africa, but could you imagine any Somali pirates taking on a ship full of metalheads.

The shitty thing about cruises/ overnight ferries is that, in the quest for more money (which apparently people who travel by boat usually have), they never let people choose just ONE bed in a cabin, like on trains with couchettes, so people travelling alone(after all, you AND at least 3 of your friends should afford this) are getting fucked over.

this is why i think i wouldn't have been able to go on this trip anyway, even if i had a lot of money(and it would probably cost me a year's salary anyway). and this is also why i probably will never take a cruise/overnight ferry in the foreseeable future(unless of course they have seats available too )
