The 2016 installment of 70,000 Tons of Metal will set sail this Thursday, and promoters UMC have announced all but one act to complete the lineup with the latest additions: Arkona, Nervosa, Novembers Doom, Starkill, Fallujah, Ghoul, No Raza and Incantation.

The clue to the 60th band to be announced is "jewel" and begins with a "D."

70,000 Tons of Metal 2016 will set sail from February 4th-8th from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and return to Jamaica with a stop at Falmouth. You can still book your tickets using the link a few paragraphs down.

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.

In addition, the ship will broadcast the upcoming Super Bowl between the Carolina Panthers v. Denver Broncos live on Sunday, February 7, 2016.

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.
