Carpathian Forest frontman Nattefrost was unable to gain entry into the US due to the immigration laws. Despite this setback, Carpathian Forest, whose remaining four members had been granted visas, was still aiming to appear at the Maryland Deathfest in Baltimore on the 26th May as scheduled, but as a four-piece, with guitarist Blood Pervertor taking on vocals. Unfortunately, for reasons unknown, the embassy was not able to return drummer Kobro's passport in time for the band to leave, and Carpathian Forest has therefore been forced to pull out of the festival completely.

According to the band's management, "Nattefrost is one more in the long line of Scandinavian black metal musicians who have been unable to gain entry into the United States due to the labyrinthine and draconian immigration laws that have so often denied U.S. fans the opportunity to see their favorite European bands."

However, three members - guitarists Tchort and Blood Pervertor and bassist Vrangsinn will attend and will be available to talk to fans. The only other occasion where Carpathian Forest played without its frontman was when Blood Pervertor stepped in to cover vocals on a handful of dates during the No Mercy Tour in 2004 when Nattefrost broke his collar bone.

Commenting on the decision to go ahead despite the absence of the band's iconic frontman and then still being forced to cancel, guitarist Tchort had this to say: "When we decided to make the trip without Nattefrost, we knew that many fans would be disappointed, but at the same time we didn't want to let down the organisers who have been so supportive throughout the whole visa process, and have done everything they could possibly to do to try and make it happen. We were also very aware that Carpathian Forest has many fans in the United States who have waited a long, long time to see the band live, and, given the circumstances, there is always the possibility that Nattefrost may never be granted a visa, so this might have been the only opportunity our US fans will have to see us on stage, albeit minus one member. To then have to pull out completely because of whatever delays occurred even though Kobro's visa was granted, was a big disappointment for everyone."

Carpathian Forest will spend most of 2013 playing a series of one-off shows and festivals while they prepare to record the long-awaited follow-up to Fuck You All!!!! Caput Tuum In Ano Est.

The problem is he wanted to work, i guess. if he wanted to leach off welfare and health care, undoubtedly they'd have just handwaved his ass in.
