70.000 Tons Of Metal 2012 Part 3 in Miami, Florida am 23-27.01.2012

Day 3 – Cayman Island
At 8:30 o’clock in the morning the "Majesty of the Seas" reached the shores of Grand Cayman: the small Capital of George Town was the destination of our travel. There, organized excursions to pirate caves were offered as well as snorkeling with stingrays, horse riding, Rum tasting and jet skiing. Alternatively, you could just have some fun on the beach. For leaving the ship, each passenger had to check out with his Sea Pass.

We were told to be back at 5:30 pm as those who were not back in time would remain on Cayman Island. After a short look around we decided to rent a Bus.

Our guided tour started with a disappointing ride through George Town´. After that we visited Hell, a special Lava formation, It is funny to write a postcard from here, but not exactly what we had come here for. Also, we didn't want to go straight to the beach. But the landscape was not that impressive and we were damned to take a few more stops, for example at a Dolphin Cove, a Rum Cake Point and a place which was announced to us by the driver as “a special landmark” - wow, cool, a turtle farm were you have to pay a 20$ fee to enter. For us it was just another rather touristy spot and not what we had intended to see... Nevertheless we were on the way to the beach and although the ride didn't quite meet our expectations it showed us why you should visit Cayman Island. It’s not because of the Turtle Farms or unseen Pirate Caves. It’s because of the lovely beaches and the beautiful diving areas. Don't
misunderstood, the trip over the Island itself was maybe worth the $20, but merely and simple not exactly the expected exploration of the Island. Also shopping turned out to be a bitter disappointment. Typical tourist junk and other trash were offered in the shops, with silver, rum, leather, or folk instruments being some rare exceptions. So, we headed straight to the beach, which turned out as a great idea. The beaches on Cayman Island are so beautiful. So we had some buckets of beer at the beach and relaxed for a few hours before we had to return.

Back on board a calm atmosphere prevailed. And so it was up to OVERKILL to reopen the venue gates and bring the party back. OVERKILL were re-scheduled on Wednesday after the massive delay in the Pool Stage Build up on Monday. And OVERKILL did a great Job. Bobby and his Band mates were in a very good Shape and mood. They proved why they are widely claimed as one of the most powerful Live-acts nowadays. Also the fact that OVERKILL had to replace Drummer Ron Lipnicki because of a broken arm changed nothing. His substitute proved itself more than worthily and did a very good job. Their perfect mix of classic Thrash hymns and new material found its end in “F**k you”, which included an AC/DC Cover of “Dirty Deeds, done dirt cheap“

After that two more top Acts had to play, but however, did not have any changes in their sets: ANNIHILATOR and CANNIBAL CORPSE.
Directly after, NIGHTWISH also played their second 90 minutes set, which did not offer any appreciable changes. This was a great difference to the first edition of the 70.000 Tons of Metal: Almost all bands had offered "something special" but this year they were mostly at theirs

MY DYING BRIDE was no exception from that either. The Gothic metaller had a warm welcome by the Fans their music is full of melancholy and tragedy and no big party music at all. But the incredible strength of expression by vocalist Aaron Stainthorpe turns their live shows into an outstanding experience again and again, as they proved impressively that evening.

If there is a band, which is totally underrated by press and Fans, it is VICIOUS RUMORS. The US Metal pioneers played an awesome Gig in the Spectrum Lounge at midnight. The main focus of the Set was clearly the “Digital Dictator” Masterpiece. And the Fans were not disappointed. Especially the genius voice of vocalist Brian Allen is very much in the veins of the old days of VICIOUS RUMORS. In connection with the as brilliant guitar play by Geoff Thorpe the US Metal pioneers are really back for more. Great Gig!

Meanwhile KAMELOT had to play at the Theater. And they had to prove that they had the ability to drag their Fans directly in front of the Stage. Of course, they were successful. The Music spoke for itself as the Band was widely celebrated by the crowd

But the marathon of highlights was not finished yet. KATAKLYSM played an outstanding second Gig at the Pool Stage. Their heavy Groove Death Metal is perfect for a huge moshpit. And it was formed in front of the Pool Stage. They played a complete different Set list. This time they were more focused on their latest releases like “The Arms of Devastation” or “Prevail”. But they never forgot to include some classics. With these two gigs, KATAKLYSM received the recognition they deserved as one of the Top Death Metal acts. The crowd went completely crazy and cheered for more Songs; a long time after KATAKLYSM had to leave the stage with “Shadows & Dust”

Next Band in the Theater was SAMAEL and they played the complete "Passage" album this time. The crowd was exhausted by the time the second Song ended. Like yesterday evening, SAMAEL presented themselves in top form and the fans paid tribute to the absolutely professional appearance with a lot of cheers and applause. After the album was completed with ’Dallas 1pm’, SAXON went straight on to the second part of the show with ‘The Eagle Has Landed’. Here, they again showed how to rock: after ninety minutes they finished with ‘Princess of the Night’, leaving only happy fans who had enjoyed a really awesome show of the English metal flagship.

At 4 am, TANKARD entered the pool stage to celebrate their party tunes with the fans. Not many followed the call so that the show turned out to be more of a family character. But the small crowd saw TANKARD doing a good job. They provided a representative cross section of their Old albums. Many fans were convinced, and enjoyed this Late Night Highlight.

After this enjoyable day, we had some Jackie Coke in the Karaoke Bar, which was completely crowded by Fans and Band members. It was absolute fun to be part of this big family aboard a cruise ship celebrating a big family party. We swayed back to our cabin shortly after sunrise and were once again deeply impressed by the absolute peaceful harmony of all participants….
