    2020 kicked off with a bang. Beginning with another successful year at 70000tons of Metal to seeing Heilung, Vader, and Opeth live, what could go wrong? The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the music industry to the point that I don’t know where things will stand in a post-pandemic world. This year felt like […]

Metal By Numbers 9/2: Unleash the charters

Posted by on September 2, 2020

Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week.   I hate to continue to be a downer after the death of Riley Gale, but the death of Chadwick Boseman continued the bummer train only four days later. Two cases of very talented […]

Coronavirus: Wilderun and Aeternam postpone spring tour

Posted by on March 15, 2020

Wilderun and Aeternam were forced to cancel their April tour due to the coronavirus pandemic.


Wilderun issued the following statement:

“It is with heavy hearts that we have decided to postpone our upcoming tour. With the growing concerns about COVID-19, we feel that postponement is the safest and most socially responsible decision we could make at this time.

Shows are a blast, but flattening the curve of the contagion is looking to be more and more paramount as the days progress. We encourage everyone to practice reasonable social distancing whenever possible, not just to protect themselves, but most importantly to protect those most vulnerable in our society.

We love you all, and we wholeheartedly thank everyone who was planning on attending, and who helped us organize everything thus far. We will monitor the situation carefully over the coming weeks and months, and hopefully get this tour rescheduled soon!

Stay safe, and much love,




Read Aeternam’s message below:

“As some of you may have seen, we had to cancel our April tour… As an independent band, we suffered a massive financial hit because of this cancellation. So, if you had planned on buying the album or a shirt during one of these shows, we encourage you to do it on our preorder campaign instead.

We have almost reached our goal, we just need a few more backers.

Support local artists, now more than ever! Thank you very much ❤🤘.

Posted by on March 4, 2020

70000tons of Metal by far surpasses any other metal cruise. It’s more than a fan’s all-access pass hanging out with some of their favorite bands. The overall adventure is a vacation with like-minded individuals surrounded by their metal brothers and sisters. It’s an example of how loving and caring the metal community is as it […]

Metal Insider’s Top 10 sets of 70000tons Round 10 2020

Posted by on February 28, 2020

  70,000 Tons of Metal 2020 is an absurd experience. It takes two concepts: metal music along with the black shirt attire, bombastic-fueled ridden, and passionate fans set sail on the luxury Royal Caribbean cruise line. A metal show, along with such extravagance, is typically the antithesis of metal (show tunes and suit jackets in […]

Posted by on December 23, 2019

  I try to follow the rules, but, once again, another year of good music has gone by, and I was able to narrow it down to 20 instead of 10. There are a bunch of variables that make me connect to a song or artist. Whether it’s the overall vibrations the sound leaves behind […]
