Behemoth Drop Off Of The ‘Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival’

Behemoth have been forced to back out of this summers ‘Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival‘ due to surgery required by their drummer Inferno. Band vocalist Nergal said of the situation:

“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!”

A new album from the outfit titled “The Satanist” is expected out this fall. No word yet on a potential replacement for them on the aforementioned festival.

    You have to be frigging kidding me. They couldn’t find a replacement drummer? Shit’s weak.

    • damn

      Inferno is an absolute beast dude. You cant just find any old drummer to do what he does… Especially not for a whole tour. They are few and far between.

        I hear Dave Lombardo has some free time.

        You think Behemoth brings in a Slayer-sized paycheck? Probably not.

        I think Behemoth brings in a bigger paycheck than sitting at home looking for news about the apparent former band
