70000 Tons Of Metal: New 10-Minute Video Report Posted Online

"Metal Zone" host Nikki Blakk of the San Francisco, California radio station 107.7 The Bone has posted a 10-minute video report on the 70000 Tons Of Metal cruise — which set sail from Miami, Florida to Cozumel, Mexico on January 24, 2011 and returned four days later. You can now watch the footage below.

According to, 70000 Tons Of Metal featured 42 metal bands and 2,000 fans sailing around the Caribbean for the better part of a week. Each band performed two sets over the journey, with many acts committing to putting on special cruise-only performances (NWOBHM legends Saxon played their 1980 albums "Wheels Of Steel" and "Strong Arm Of The Law" in their entirety; while Testament did the same with their first two records, "The Legacy" and "The New Order"). There were three different stages on the ship: an outdoor poolside stage, a mid-sized club stage and a full indoor theatre that could hold almost all 2,000 fans onboard.
