HELLOWEEN to co-headline 70,000 Tons Of Metal cruise January 28th

5311

This year German Melodic Speed Metal pioneers, Helloween will be co-headlining the epic 70,000 Tons Of Metal Cruise, sailing from Miami to the Turks and Caicos Islands beginning Jan 28, 2013. The cruise boasts an intense line up of over 32 metal bands over 5 days.

Helloween’s new album Straight Out Of Hell will be released 1/22/13 on The End Records. In the album they have documented how a post apocalyptic future would look like. It’s a work full of speed and toughness, with optimism and great joy of playing, featuring complex arrangements, strong hooks and plenty of catchy melodies. Or, let the facts speak for themselves, 13 mostly fast-paced songs that turn out to be impressively multi-layered and will completely delight all Helloween fans due to the different songwriters: Andi Deris, founding members Michael Weikath and Markus Großkopf, and guitarist Sascha Gerstner. Weikath explains, “Straight Out Of Hell is the consequent development of the two albums before. 7 Sinners was recorded more or less in the wake of Gambling With The Devil, while the new songs are a continuation of the 7 Sinners directives, only a little less doom bound and noticeably more positive. These songs will kick even the laziest listener’s ass.”

70,000 Tons Of Metal Cruise
Make no mistake, this is not one of the cruises where you share the ship with regular cruise guests… and don’t get intimidated by copy-cats! Unlike others we remove the seats in the theater, or do you like seated Heavy Metal shows? This is 70000 TONS OF METAL, The World’s Biggest Floating Heavy Metal Festival, featuring the biggest Open Air Stage to sail the open seas.
