Bummer Alert


This sucks! Behemoth just announced that they have no choice but to drop off this summer's Mayhem Festival. They were, for me, one of the bright spots of the tour, but no more. The band was forced to drop off due to drummer Inferno needing emergency appendix surgery, and requiring a few months to heal. Here's an official statement from frontman Nergal:

"This must have been the most difficult decision we were forced to make in recent 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 few months to fully recover and get back to shape. We are trying to save selected European Festivals with a fill in drummer (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!"

As a fan I'm bummed, but I'm sure the band is devastated and this was to be their grand return in anticipation of their new album release, The Satanist. Our thoughts go to Inferno for a speedy recovery.

Oh and hey, we're still giving away tickets to Mayhem Fest.
