They were literally my only reason for going.
Looks like I’m free whatever day the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival is coming to my area!
The band was forced to pull out of the fest because drummer Inferno has take ill and requires surgery.
“This must have been the most difficult decision we were forced to make in recent years,” says frontman Nergal.
“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, 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 U.S. (early 2014) empowered and motivated as never before!”
Fuck, that blows.
We wish Inferno a speedy recovery.
Behemoth’s new album The Satanist drops this fall.
