Blabbermouth is reporting that Cannibal Corpse’s October 11 in Moscow (that’s in Russia) was canceled at the last minute.
Why? The ever popular “technical reasons” was offered as an explanation.
“Everything was fine, and all the equipment had already been set up on stage. However, a few minutes prior to the concert’s scheduled start, the organizer came out and told the audience that the show was canceled,” an eyewitness told the site.
The band’s s eight-date tour of Russia commenced on October 2 in Krasnodar.
Ahead of the band’s arrival in the country, Dmitry Tsorionov — the head of “God’s Will,” a Russian Orthodox social movement — called on state authorities to cancel Cannibal’s tour, saying the band’s music violates Russia’s anti-blasphemy law by promoting “religious hatred” and detailing instances of rape and the murder of children.
It’s death metal.
What was that oppressive, opposing Russian fuck expecting?
