“Every year I book a very diverse line-up trying to cover all sub-genres of Heavy Metal,” says Andy Piller, The Skipper of 70000TONS OF METAL. “The only thing that’s even more diverse are our Survivors. Last year we welcomed Metalheads from 74 (seventy-four!) different Nations on board, making 70000TONS OF METAL truly feel like the United Nations of Heavy Metal… at Sea! Just imagine having people from all over the Globe on the same ship. Origin, race, language, religion, lifestyle, all of that does not matter anymore. You can feel the vibe on board that everyone is equal. That’s what makes me most proud about 70000TONS OF METAL.”
