"They will join you and 2,999 other die hard headbangers on board the original, the world’s biggest heavy metal cruise! That brings the count to 59... which means there's only one more. Who will it be? You will know... SOON!”

Dalriada had this to say about the news: "70000 Tons of Metal is definitely a huge step up for us. Cruising in the Caribbean, hanging out at the pool, slurping ridiculous cocktails while literally TONS of metal are shaking the boat!

Well, I guess there’s still a lot more to come." More...
