GOD DETHRONED To Reunite For 70,000 Tons Of Metal CruiseWednesday, 30th July 2014
Revered Holland-based death metallers GOD DETHRONED have announced plans to reform, staring with next year’s 70000 Tons of Metal, The World’s Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise, sailing to Jamaica in January 2015.
GOD DETHRONED frontman Henri Sattler, explains:
“In early 2011, I was facing two options: one was to announce a break, and the other option was to quit the band. I definitely needed time away from it all, and having a break wasn’t reassuring enough to know if I would be able to recharge the batteries for another go.”
“Oddly enough it was at the funeral of the man who discovered us in the first place that I came to realize the story wasn’t finished yet.
So here we go again. Don’t think you will be able to see us playing every club for weekends on end. We will only play a small selection of shows and this won’t happen before 2015. Besides that, the core of the band will consist of only Michiel and myself. We’ll have some cool guest musicians lined up, though, to make sure we’ll give you the best performance possible.
Last but not least, our first shows will be where we played our last ones three years ago. Our rebirth will happen on board 70000TONS OF METAL 2015. See you on board!”
Tickets for next year’s 70000 Tons Of Metal – the World’s Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise – which will leave Ft. Lauderdale on January 22nd and head to Ocho Rios, Jamaica and venture back to Ft. Lauderdale on January 26th – are on sale now.

Skipper Andy Piller states: “I want to make sure the intimacy between the bands and the fans does not change in our new environment. When we had 2,000 cruisers we booked 40 bands. Now we will have 3,000 cruisers which means we will be inviting 60 bands to perform!”
