Belphegor - Cancel North American Tour

The Austrian extreme metallers Belphegor were supposed to start their headlining North American tour later this month but they have been forced to cancel it due to a critical and immediate family emergency. The North American Voices From The Dark Tour would feature Belphegor, Rotting Christ (Greece), Beheaded (Malta), and Svart Crown (France).

Belphegor frontman and guitarist Helmuth Lehner has issued the following statement: "After fighting many months now (the last 4 months have been terrible), my mother is at the end. Her body is decaying more and more and will not survive the next weeks (maybe days) or will fall in coma soon. I will not risk being away at this time."

Rotting Christ also released this statement: "As Rotting Christ we have no other choice than supporting Helmuth's family situation and to express simultaneously our deep disappointment with the fact that we will not meet our Northern American Metal brothers as we promised them with this tour. We promise though that we will work our asses off to be back in your land ASAP so stay tuned for updates."
