It’s been a while since we’ve covered anything to do with the 7000 Tons of Metal cruise because, well, I lost interest. “I can’t go” eventually translated into “I don’t care” but really we cover tons of shit here that we can’t make ourselves and the cruise deserves an honorable mention because from the time we first announced it to now, the line up has grown to become one of the greatest I’ve ever seen. Blind Freakin’ Guardian, Amon Amarth, Dark Tranquillity, Iced Earth, Epica, and Testament (to name but a few) have all been confirmed to play this four day extravaganza on the high seas. Thus far there are a total of 34 bands making the voyage and promoters expect to hear from six more, bringing the total to 40 bands. 40 bands in 4 days.
Take a look at the list of confirmed bands and ticketing information...
