"The only thing that's even more diverse are our Survivors. Last year we welcomed Metalheads from 74 (seventy-four!) different Nations on board, making 70000TONS OF METAL truly feel like the United Nations of Heavy Metal... at Sea! Just imagine having people from all over the Globe on the same ship. Origin, race, language, religion, lifestyle, all of that does not matter anymore. You can feel the vibe on board that everyone is equal. That's what makes me most proud about 70000TONS OF METAL."

Round 7 of The Original, The World’s Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise set sail February 2-6, 2017, marking the seventh consecutive sellout for 70000TONS OF METAL™. Priding themselves as being an International Heavy Metal Family at Sea, 70000TONS OF METAL™ 2017 sailed with Metalheads from an astounding 74 different countries who enjoyed a luxury Caribbean cruise leaving from Miami/Ft. Lauderdale, FL to Labadee, Haiti and back.

With 61 acts representing practically every genre of Metal, playing 123 shows across 4 stages, 70000TONS OF METAL™ has been noted as the biggest and best Heavy Metal Cruise, with one of the highlights being Jamming With Waters In International Waters. Hosted by Jeff Waters of ANNIHILATOR, the official 70000TONS OF METAL™ All Star Jam once again wrote a new chapter in Heavy Metal History when a spectacular lineup of the musicians on board 70000TONS OF METAL™ 2017 teamed up to perform classic Metal Anthems!

Prior to sailing there was a lot of online discussion amongst Sailors about what they could do to provide aid to those in need in Haiti, which inspired the crew at 70000TONS OF METAL™ to make their own contribution - they will be auctioning off a very unique Michael Schenker 2004 model Dean Guitar, which was signed by the world class artists who participated in the jam: Elize Ryd (AMARANTHE), Esa Holopainen (AMORPHIS), Jeff Waters / Fabio Alessandrini / Rich Hinks / Aaron Homma (ANNIHILATOR), Charlie Benante / Frank Bello / Scott Ian (ANTHRAX), Ben Ash (CARCASS), Mark Osegueda / Will Carroll (DEATH ANGEL), Lisa Cuthbert (DRACONIAN), Jon Gallagher (DYING FETUS), Van Williams (GHOST SHIP OCTAVIUS), Axel Ritt (GRAVE DIGGER), Bobby Blitz (OVERKILL), Per Nilsson (SCAR SYMMETRY), Fabio D'Amore (SERENITY), Rich Ward (STUCK MOJO), Alex Skolnick / Steve DiGiorgio / Gene Hoglan (TESTAMENT), Thomas Vikström / Linnéa Vikström (THERION), Russ Bergquist (TOUCH THE SUN), and Steven Wussow / Philip Restemeier (XANDRIA).

All proceeds from the auction will be donated to the people of Haiti via Direct Relief. Direct Relief is a nongovernmental, nonsectarian, and not-for- profit humanitarian aid organization with a mission to improve the health and lives of people affected by poverty or emergencies by delivering medicines and medical supplies to people in all 50 U.S. states and in 80 countries. Since 2010, Direct Relief has provided over $204 million in critically needed medical aid to over 200 healthcare facilities and organizations caring for Haiti’s most vulnerable communities.
