After having Russian Orthodox Church activist organizations trying to ban their shows in the country and seeing three Russian shows cancelled, death metallers Cannibal Corpse now face a ban of their lyrics, according to Rapsi. Prosecutors in the republic of Bashkortostan had requested a court ban on lyrics and cover art by the band.
Cannibal Corpse and Behemoth have joined forces and are set to co-headline a tour in the U.S. and Canada in early 2015. The American and Polish death metal giants will be supported by two Swedish bands: Aeon and Tribulation. This should be a death metal rampage. Both bands are touring in support of their most recent albums.
Even before Cannibal Corpse began their Russian trek, they had Russian Orthodox Church activist organizations trying to ban the shows. The truth is that three of the shows were cancelled. The death metal band recently completed their tour of Russia, a place they have played previously many times with no issues. Unfortunately, this tour did not go as planned. The group has now released a statement addressing these cancellations. Basically, they weren't allowed to perform at some shows.

Watch it below folks!

They have something against their lyrics, it seems, and are calling for a ban on the shows.
