We’re about ten months away from next year’s 70,000 Tons Of Metal Cruise setting sail. Yet within the past week, we’ve already learned about a few big names confirmed for the metal cruise festival.

On Easter, it was revealed that Dark Tranquillity, Death Angel, Overkill and Soilwork were slated to play 70,000 Tons Of Metal Cruise 2014. Since then, bands like Fear Factory, Symphony X, D.R.I., Finntroll, and Septicflesh were also confirmed for the cruise. If that wasn’t enough, it was also announced that Fear Factory will be performing their 1995 album Demanufacture on board.

There is still another 31 bands left to be announced, yet this cruise’s lineup is already looking pretty damn killer. More bands will be announced leading up to the cruise, while booking for next year’s edition (which will mark its time aboard the Majesty Of The Seas ship) is open to the public online starting today at 5pm EST.
