So, there’s one fewer reason to board the Barge To Hell.
Austrian blackened metal outfit Belphegor have cancelled their appearance on the cruise, which will run from December 3 through December 7.
The cruise route begins in Miami and then travels to Nassau, Bahamas, and then back to Florida.
Belphegor leader Helmuth comments: “I wanna hold to the March 2013 album release date and unfortunately studio terms collide with the cruise. Because of my health issues, we had to delay a lot of things during the last 12 months: tours, studio sessions, recording and so forth. We put extra creativity, extra magick — full concentration and energy into the new album to get the best result possible of our art.
“I hope you all understand this difficult decision for the band, to cancel and pass on this great experience. We really wish and hope that we can be a part of it in one of the next year’s editions. In hell we burn!!!”
I think it’s because Helmuth can’t have sun exposure, or else he crumbles to ash.
