70,000 Tons of Metal 2016 will set sail on February 4th-8th from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and return to Jamaica with a stop at Falmouth.
The festival will board a new vessel, the second in as many years: The Independence of the Seas (via Royal Caribbean). The ship will accommodate four stages: The Alhambra Theater is a five-story concert hall in which they spare no expense to remove part of the (very comfortable) seating so you have a real Mosh Pit on the High Seas; The more intimate Egyptian themed Pyramid Lounge offers the local club atmosphere; The third indoor stage is in Studio B, the ice skating rink featuring a maritime version of the Arena experience and last but not least their jewel: The Pool Deck stage - The World’s Biggest Open Air Stage Structure to ever sail the Open Seas, surrounded by multiple bars and pools, plenty of room to sunbathe on several decks and even hot tubs incorporated into the Pool Deck stage to soak in while you watch the shows!
The All-Star Jam band, which returned this past January will also be back, led by Annihilator's Jeff Waters and members from the various acts aboard performing cover tunes live.
Ticket prices include all on board entertainment, most non-alcoholic and non-carbonated beverages, all meals in the dining rooms, most on board restaurants and even 24 hour room service. For more information or to book your high seas metal adventure, head on over to 70000tons.com.

According to the first audio samples, "The Circle Shuts" will include a perfect mix of heavy riffing and great melodies. Soon, you can check out some audio samples on afm-records.de.
In addition to the new album itself, the guys from Squealer have a special surprise for all longtime Squealer fans:
"Lots of fans from the early years asked us, if we would like to re-release the very first Squealer record "Human Traces" (recorded in May, 1989), which was only available on vinyl and which is sold out since a very long time.
"We thought the time has come to put this songs finally on a CD, So we looked for the tapes with the original recordings to send them to the Finnvox Studio for re-mastering.
"Now, the limited first edition of 'The Circle Shuts' will include the remastered songs of the first Squealer record 'Human Traces' as bonus tracks!!!"
