Virgin Steele and Cannibal Corpse added to 70,000 Tons of Metal

70,000 Tons of Metal, the floating festival, has added Virgin Steele and Cannibal Corpse to their bill for next year’s event. Read the press statement for adding both bands below.

After Hurricane Irene has delayed their arrival at the North American East Coast they finally anchored in the Hudson River. Welcome to The Big Apple! They have arrived on a virgin continent. Please welcome the first American band on board: Virgin Steele!

Today some brave sailors went to explore Upstate New York only to lose their way and end up in the city of Buffalo to discover a Cannibal Corpse! 70,000 Tons of Metal, The World’s Biggest Floating Heavy Metal Festival now has 19 out of 40 on board and counting fast…

Make no mistake, 70,000 Tons of Metal is not your grandma’s cruise. It’s also not one of the cruises that share the ship with normal cruise guests. This is an all heavy metal cruise! Can you imagine that? A whole luxury cruise ship full of metalheads? And since there is no backstage area you will have the opportunity to mingle side-by-side with the artists in this incredibly fan-friendly scenario that has no comparison. It’s like everyone has a backstage pass!

So far 19 out of a total of 40 bands on board are known:
Amorphis
Cannibal Corpse
Coroner
Dark Funeral
Eluveitie
God Dethroned
Grave Digger
Hammerfall
In Extremo
Moonsorrow
My Dying Bride
Nightwish
Pestilence
Samael
Stratovarius
Tankard
Therion
Tristania
