UMC - the promoters for the World's Original and Largest Cruise Festival, 70,000 Tons of Metal - announced four "newer or lesser known acts" (which over the years has heralded the fan created "Cripper Award" for best new band discovery): Jungle Rot from Wisconsin, Abandon Hope from Germany, Divided Multitude from Norway and, as a special treat, one of the most legendary South American Death Metal Bands - Masacre from Colombia.

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.

All the information on the festival, including how to book your dream metal vacation can be found at 70000tons.com.
