71,000 Tons of Metal


In the world of metal music, there are certain events that stand out each year. Wacken, in Germany is certainly one, there are other biggies. But, 71,000 Tons of Metal is certainly one of top venues on the planet. I mean, here’s what we get: a 5 day cruise on a super cruise liner, leaving Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and heading south around Cuba from the east to Jamaica. Put into port for a few hours, then head back around the western part of Cuba back to Ft. Lauderdale. On the cruise are 60 of the top metal bands on earth, along with some 3,000 well healed metal heads from about 50 countries. You gotta love it. The music goes from about 10 in the morning until about 5 AM and, trust me, the bars are open and serving. If you love metal, this is pretty much Nirvana, complete with sun burn.

Dames of Darkness Day Two

Dames of Darkness Day Two @ Robin 2 Bilston (UK)
Sunday 10 May 2015


Curious on what day two would bring (for me: 5 unknown and 2 known bands) I was early at the venue. Just like quite some die-hards. Not all looked that fresh. The doors opened on time. Getting in the sound of the first band could be heard. After some confusion I learned the sound check was still in progress. It looked like others suffered from the night before and had a hard time to get started.
