There are your standard heavy metal festivals – and there is 70000TONS OF METAL. Just imagine: You’ve just returned from a beautiful island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean after spending hours enjoying the sun and white sand on a wonderful Caribbean beach. Feeling the warm wind blowing in your face, you are now sitting in a hot tub on a giant cruise ship, up close to a large stage, headbanging to your favourite band. You are watching from one of six whirlpools with a direct view of the stage on the pool deck, which is the biggest open air stage structure to sail the seas. It’s loud. It’s full of metalheads from all over the world. Sounds perfect? Well, it is ......
It’s been more than a week now since most fans have returned home from a more than successful 70000TONS OF METAL 2018 - round 8, more than a few of them still suffering from a serious case of PCD (post cruise depression) following four incredible days on board the Independence Of The Seas. More than 3,000 metalheads boarded the ship together with 61 bands, each of which was going to perform at least two shows (124 shows on 4 stages in total) during this unique event at sea. Some fans spent the shore day in Turks and Caicos with their favourite band during one of the various artist-led shore excursions. Picture yourself swimming with Meshuggah in the awe inspiring presence of majestic stingrays, or snorkeling with Aborted and Exhumed by your side to make you feel safe. Wolves on a safari? Sure, go on a coast-to-coast island tour with Wolfchant!
On top came the one of a kind All-Star performance “Jamming With Waters in International Waters” featuring members e.g. from Kreator, Sabaton, Cannibal Corpse, Destruction, Sonata Arctica, Meshuggah, Enslaved, Primal Fear, Dark Tranquility, Voivod, Seven Spires and many more, playing all time heavy metal and hard rock classics together on stage for the first time ever.
And there was another premiere, a record rather, that no one expected to be broken after last year’s peak of 74 different nationalities represented on board: 2018 beat 2017 by one more nation and proved once again that 70000TONS OF METAL is the most global cruise, uniting 75 nations on board this year. Germany, USA and Canada were among the top five of the most represented nations aboard. The youngest sailor was only 1 year old, the oldest turned 79 on the ship.
Coming up: Round 9
So watch out, Sailors: After the cruise is before the cruise. Fans can already look forward to round 9 of 70000TONS OF METAL, THE original, The World’s Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise sailing from Miami/Ft. Lauderdale to Labadee, Haiti and back, January 31 – February 4, 2019.

On Saturday 14th April 2018 – just after their UK tour - the symphonic metal icons, along with support from Myrkur and Oceans Of Slumber, will celebrate their 1000th show anniversary at 013 in Tilburg, the Netherlands. After their recent sold out shows in the Netherlands, Epica is more than proud to announce that they will perform this mile-stone event at the legendary 013 venue, the exact same venue where it all started for the band 16 years ago!
Vocalist Simone Simons stated: "Back in 2002, we could have never imagined that one day we'd be playing our 1,000th live show! This couldn't have happened without the support of our dearest and most loyal Epica legion, so in order to make this an unforgettable night, we've invited some very cool guests to perform with us!"
Guitarist Mark Jansen added: "I remember our very first show at 013, Tilburg as if it was yesterday. Back then we were supporting Anathema, but now 16 years later, we'll have the honour to be celebrating our 1,000th show at the same venue as headliners. We could have never achieved this without the support of our loyal fans, so we definitely wanted to make this an amazing night to celebrate all together with also some very cool special guests! We hope to see you all in Tilburg!"

Music often functions as that proverbial light at the end of the tunnel and provides shelter during any storm and calm in the middle of tumult. 36 Crazyfists understand this phenomenon first-hand. In fact, the Anchorage quartet—Brock Lindow [vocals], Steve Holt [guitar], Mick Whitney [bass], and Kyle Baltus [drums]—find catharsis within chaos on their aptly titled seventh full-length, ‘Lanterns’.
‘Lanterns’ is available to listen to and purchase here: https://SpinefarmRecords.lnk.to/GOFsU
36 Crazyfists have revealed an official video for album track ‘Better to Burn’, check it out here:
In early 2018, Brazilian thrash metal legends Sepultura will head out on a lengthy and extensive European headline tour in support of their highly acclaimed album ‘Machine Messiah’, which was released in early 2016 via Nuclear Blast. Be prepared for a full 90 minute onslaught of pure Sepultura, with a set list featuring new hits as well as some timeless classics.
After an extremely successful tour with Kreator and a raft of festival shows in 2017, Sepultura will return to the UK, Ireland and Europe with their most powerful billing yet. German technical death metal masters Obscura are confirmed as direct support, followed by US-based death / black metallers Goatwhore and New Jersey's finest deathcore outfit, Fit For An Autopsy.
Andreas Kisser states:
"Sepulnation Europe, I’m very happy to announce our first headline tour for the Machine Messiah album in February/March 2018! I couldn’t be more excited with the bands that are going to be with us, such amazing acts like Obscura, Goatwhore and Fit For An Autopsy! So be ready, the Messiah is on the move, see you all soon!
