Last week, we watched in jealousy as our friends at MetalInjection.net posted updates from the 70000 Tons Of Metal Cruise. If there was ever a chance to get to go on a cruise vacation while partying with bands like Fear Factory, Testament, Iced Earth, Saxon and 4,000 fellow metal heads, this was our chance. Fortunately for us, however, those who didn’t get to hop aboard the most metal cruise ever can still watch their favorite metal stars having fun through a cruise activity staple: Karaoke
Since the cruise ended, numerous fan-filmed videos of various band members from the bill performing karaoke style covers during the four-day-getaway have been posted online. In the video above, Tom Hunting (Exodus), Alex Skolnick (Testament) and Rob Cavestany (Death Angel) perform The Eagles’ “Lying Eyes.” It’s cool enough to see three bands that many would mention amongst the original “Big Four” performing on the same bill (the fourth and absent band being Overkill). But it’s even more awesome to see them let loose together and having fun, even if it isn’t exactly a song we would’ve chosen for them to perform. You can watch more videos of various band members singing karaoke, including Fear Factory’s Burton C. Bell singing Steve Miller Band’s “Jet Airliner,” after the jump.
Here’s Fear Factory’s Burton C. Bell singing Steve Miller Band’s “Jet Airliner”:
Here’s Swashbuckle’s drummer Paul Christiansen crooning “Mack The Knife”:
Ever wanted to see Terji Skibenæs and Gunnar H. Thomsen of TÝR and Petri Lindroos of Ensiferum perform “Just A Gigolo” together? Well your wish has come true then:
And finally, performing a cover that’s a bit more fitting for the 70000 Tons Of Metal cruise, Sodom’s Thomas “Angelripper” Such singing Motörhead’s “Ace Of Spades.”
