Drummer Inferno undergoes surgery and unable to perform while he recovers
Poland's blackened death metal outfit BEHEMOTH have been forced to cancel their upcoming appearance on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival due to their drummer Inferno taking ill and requiring surgery.
The band's frontman Nergal comments, "This must have been the most difficuld decision we were forced to make in recend years. Behemoth is known for not canceling any shows or tours. But this is not something we can do when we are missing our driving force, the man behind the drums - Inferno. Unfortunately, he was hospitalized due to appendix surgery and it's gonna take him a few months to fully recover and get back to shape. We are trying to save selected European Festivals with a fill-in drumer (Krimh ex-Decapitated), but we won't be risking doing a full-on prestigious tour like the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival without Inferno. Behemoth is a solid unit and any part of this unit missing makes us weaker, and that is not how we want to present our new material to our fans. Please, accept our apologies and be patient, we shall return to Europe (this fall) and US (early 2014) empowered and motivated as never before!"
Behemoth's recently announced forthcoming full-length album, The Satanist, is scheduled for a fall 2013 release. For further updates please visit the band's Facebook page and www.metalblade.com
