The 70,000 Tons Of Metal cruise has announced a new addition to the lineup, and it’s a pretty heavy one, literally. I’m beating Metal Sucks to the punch now in saying that now that Fear Factory is on the tour, it’s probably the 70,001 Tons Of Metal cruise now.

In all seriousness, Fear Factory is an amazing addition to a cruise that already includes Amon Amarth, Death Angel, Saxon, Exodus and Trouble. And with 21 more bands to be announced, it can only get better. The cruise will set sail on Monday, January 24, 2011 from Miami to Cozumel, Mexico. Tickets start at the very convenient price of $666. While I’m not sure I’d want to spend an entire four days on a boat with 2,000 metalheads and no escape, it’s a hell of a lot better than spending four days on a boat with geriatric shuffleboard players.  Find out more information about it here.
