After voyaging to Portugal last week, the 70,000 Tons of Metal tanker returns to American shores to welcome Tampa-based Obituary aboard.

The self-proclaimed "heaviest band in the world" will mesh well with Amon Amarth, Epica, Finntroll, Moonspell Raven, Saxon,
Sodom, Sonata Arctica, Stratovarius, Trouble, Uli Jon Roth, and
Witchburner. From the official release:
