70000 Tons Of Metal Cruise - the world's biggest floating heavy metal festival - has sailed off yesterday. Not on board is Agent Steel vocalist John Cyriis, who had to cancel the trip due to unfortunate events.

The band contemplated canceling, but good friends James Rivera from Helstar, and Rick Mythiasin (Steel Prophet) will lend their extraordinary vocal talents and appear with the rest of the band members as a special "Masters Of Metal" set that will include a variety of the Agent Steel catalog.

A comment from the band goes as follows: "This is a great event for the fans to celebrate in the spirit of Heavy Metal on the open seas, we are grateful for James Rivera and Rick Mythiasin to step in on such short notice. Mr Cyriis has given his blessings for Agent Steel to get on stage, and look out to the ocean, and kick some ass!"

The band is still scheduled to perform the rest of this year's European festivals with original vocalist John Cyriis.

Rick actually showed me a song he recorded with Agent Steel, and it's pretty kick ass if you ask me. Rick is a badass vocalist, and I'm hoping he's continuing to work with them.
