70,000 Tons of Metal

First 70,000 Tons of Metal 2012 Acts Announced!

If you're unfamiliar with 70,000 Tons of Metal, it's pretty much the greatest thing on the planet. Over 5 days, over 2,000 metalheads hop on board a luxury cruise ship for the world's only metal fest on the open seas. Rob and his ragtag bunch of Injection staffers walked on board for the 2011 cruise, posting a 20-minute video and over 500 photos of sunbathing and debauchery.

Grave Digger
My Dying Bride
