70000 tons Of Metal is the biggest heavy metal cruise on the planet. It has gained and created a loyal and fanatical following amongst metal fans around the globe in a short few years. Even though there were a lot of discussions, and even some outrage on the official 70000tons forum and social media, about the long silence while waiting to hear about the booking of the bands. However, the whole cruise was a surrealistic experience for journalists and fans alike. Spirits were not dampened by a rainy day which whipped the Caribbean sea and the ship, Majesty Of The Seas, about.  The metallic mayhem on the sea sailed from Miami, Florida to Costa Maya, Mexico and back. Here is the brief write-up of all these bands who appeared on the ship.

 INTERVIEW WITH HARALD OIMOEN

Harald Oimoen is the photographer, bass player, and a real walking metal encyclopedia of the Bay Area metal scene. Since 1999 he has been the part of the legendary crossover giant D.R.I. and been gigging all around, even though the band has been on hiatus because of the health issues within the band. Besides that, Oimoen has been the main architect creating the amazing book MURDER IN THE FRONT ROW which has a lot of never-seen-before pics from the early days of Bay Area thrash metal. Metal-Rules.com had the great pleasure to sit down with Oimoen and talk about D.R.I., the book, and above all, metal in general.
