One of these days, I’m totally going to go to one of these awesome music cruises. I came pretty close one time but at the end of the day, I couldn’t afford it. I will be entering the “legitimate” workforce soon, so I should have some extra scratch.  Maybe I’ll finally be able to attend one soon? A good goal to set my eyes on is 70000 Tons of Metal 2014, because so far, the lineup’s looking pretty sweet.

Dark Tranquillity
Death Angel
Symphony X
And there’s still 33 more bands to be announced. I’ll let the press release do the rest of the talking:
Are you ready for Round 4 of The World’s Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise?
As this will be the last time 70000TONS OF METAL, The World’s Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise will be sailing on the “Majesty of the Seas”, they have a very special treat for all you Sailors: Everyone that becomes a ticketed and paid passenger before July 27, 2013 will be able to vote where they are going to steer that old lady.
What are you waiting for? Just imagine starting next year in style: In January 2014, you and 2,000 of the craziest Metal fans from all around the World will go to the Caribbean to make Heavy Metal History: Together with 40 Metal bands you will take over a luxury cruise ship for a 5 day and 4 night trip of a lifetime.
And make no mistake, with 70000TONS OF METAL, it’s all or nothing. Do you like seated Heavy Metal shows? No! Because real Metal shows have a moshpit!
