Vektor Pulled From ‘70000Tons Of Metal’ Cruise Amid Controversy


Vektor have found themselves removed from the bill of this year’s ‘70000Tons Of Metal‘ cruise. Earlier today (January 03rd) it was revealed that the group had been ejected from the lineup of the coming metal cruise, presumably amid public outcry. It’s a familiar situation for the thrash metal band, as this past September saw them dropped from Century Media two days after the label announced they had signed them.

The controversy surrounding the group stems from allegations of sexual assault and physical abuse made against vocalist/guitarist David DiSanto by his wife at the time back in 2019. DiSanto would publicly deny those allegations back in July of 2019.

A statement regarding the band being pulled from the ‘70000Tons Of Metal‘ cruise reads as follows:

That cruise is scheduled to embark from Miami, FL on January 30th. Speaking this past September after being dropped by Century Media, DiSanto once again denied the allegations made against him.

Despite the controversy, Vektor continue to remain active, having embarked on a tour of the UK and Europe this past fall. They have also been announced for this year’s annual ‘Hellfest‘ in Clisson, France.
