Christmas is coming soon, so it is time for the first of their surprises to be revealed: Five prominent heroes of the Northern metal-scene have joined forces to pay endless tribute to the dignified Swedish cult-combo Bathory. As TWILIGHT OF THE GODS, Alan Nemtheanga (Primordial), Nick Barker (ex-Dimmu Borgir, ex-Cradle Of Filth), Blasphemer (ex-Mayhem), Frode Glesnes (Einherjer) and Patrik Lindgren (Thyrfing) will open the history-books to honor the fabulous legacy of master Quorthon 6 years after his tragic decease. 70000TONS OF METAL, The World’s Biggest Floating Heavy Metal Festival. Stay tuned for more Christmas surprises and specials to be announced soon!
The festival billing is shaping up as follows:
Twilight Of The Gods (performing BATHORY masterpieces)
Uli Jon Roth
70000TONS OF METAL will sail Monday, January 24, 2011 aboard the Royal Caribbean “Majesty of the Seas” from Miami FL to Cozumel, Mexico and will not return you to the real world for four days until Friday, January 28, 2011.
Make no mistake, 70000TONS 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!
Ticket prices start at US$666 plus US$249 taxes and fees per person and include all on-board entertainment, all meals, non-alcoholic and non-carbonated beverages at the dining rooms, most on-board restaurants and 24 room service!
