Please check out the 70,000 Tons of Metal 2011 Digital Scrapbook. Special Thanks to Billy Bob Joe Hockin for putting this all together for us!
In January of 2011 42 bands and 2038 metalheads descended on the Royal Caribbean Majesty Of The Seas in what would be a week that no metalhead on the boat will ever forget. Over 3000 pictures were submitted for this video, these are the best of them.

It's been a month now since 2000 metal heads boarded a cruise ship in Miami along with 42 of their favorite metal bands. An observation as one of those 2000 was that everyone who was on that ship came off of it describing similar feelings about the experience: From the enthusiasm as the trip began, to the intensity of the cruise itself, and the let-down as we headed home and had to come to grips that it had come to and end for this year. Because of the downright overwhelming onslaught of bands to see, people to meet, and things to do, however, it wasn't the same experience for any one cruise-goer, and in that lays one of many beauties of the 70000 Tons of Metal adventure. These images are one way I captured my experience.

It doesn't need to be repeated again...OK, I'm lying. I don't think it could be said enough how amazing and epic this journey was. However, rather than rave about how pretty much every band brought something to the table for someone, or how it was the most unbelievable event I've ever attended, I want to put some life into it for those of you who didn't get to join us. Everyone who was there already knows that no one had a better experience than the one they had, so this is our Metal Tome story.

Nature is everything that pertains to this world. The natural kingdoms aren’t only physical things and organisms, but they all contain deeper states of life that reflect upon humanity, the psyche and art. Humans are connected to each of the natural kingdoms biologically as well as mentally, and because of this the natural kingdoms must be expressed in every art and skill, including Heavy Metal.

The division between light and darkness has been engraved in the collective mind since time immemorial. It’s believed in most ancient philosophies and mythologies that the universe consists of three large realms with various subdivisions: heaven, earth and the underworld. Before mankind’s decadence, these three were united in harmony, but a discrepancy between the highest and lowest powers caused the worlds to split, and our world became the middle ground.

The hypocrisy that governs society these days has a particular modus operandi: Censorship is the master in homes, schools, malls and just any place people frequent during the day. You are supposed to pretend you’re a righteous citizen who condemns any lack of control in every single area of life, while those who control the system unleash their fury against anyone who goes against their interests.
Hate is a universally preferred victim of censorship because compared to other emotions it’s more intense, sincere and difficult to tame. Hate isn’t more dangerous than other emotions like fear and even happiness; any feeling can cause harm depending on the way it is expressed. But hate has been demonized increasingly in the course of the last two centuries until people became so afraid of it they illegalized even its linguistic manifestations. It’s like they pretend to control universal hate by leaving it only to the military.

Entertainment and the arts will always be the mirror of our collective unconscious, regardless of the type of media used in a particular age in history. Originally, arts were linked to religion almost as a rule. Our forefathers painted, sculpted and wrote epics about their gods, and all the arts people were exposed to had a strong mythical content. Art and spirituality will therefore always be attached to each other regardless of how sacred or profane a particular form of art claims to be.

We are a flitting race. We flit like the wind. But metal heads - what are metal heads if not a bit different from the flock that breezes south or north with the change of seasons? Full-blooded metal, in my opinion will always be about high ideals, and full-blooded metal heads will invariably identify with that statement. Though we flock to this one “genre” (way of life) from many backgrounds, heritages, and to feed different needs, metal is all about remaining true to some concept. Our black shirts are mostly gray; our hair is mostly long, but for what reason? What sets this “trend” (by appearances only) apart from all of the other bullshit that people try to preach or identify with?

Greetings denzions of Metal. As I sat here pondering the section name for my new articles... I was struck with the epiphany that I do in many respects harvest the sorrow of the world. You may now throw fruits and vegetables at me for saying something that some may derive as "emo", but let me tell you this... I'll cleave your skull from the body (That is a given... I'll go to prison and probably become a large black guys bitch, but hey... it's Metal).
