UMC - promoters for the World's Largest Cruise Festival, 70,000 Tons of Metal - announced that Finnish metal act Amorphis is the new "30th act" to be added to the 2015 roster. With the recent demise of Chimaira, Amorphis represents the new halfway point in the lineup announcements. According to UMC, "[a]fter weeks of negotiations, even our Skipper could not convince [Chimaira] to do one final show on board."

Amorphis is still supporting the latest album "Circle" (2013) and recently announced a string of 20th Anniversary shows with Avatarium in support, which celebrates the band's classic 1994 release "Tales From The Thousand Lakes."

70,000 Tons of Metal casts off on Thursday, January 22, 2015 from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida with a stop at Ocho Rios, Jamaica, returning on Tuesday, January 26, 2015 aboard a new ship, Liberty of the Seas (via Royal Caribbean), which will accommodate four stages. The All-Star Jam band will be back this coming January, which features members from the various acts aboard performing cover tunes live. There will also be two hot tubs on the pool deck stage.
