BELPHEGOR Forced To Cancel Headlining North American TourMonday, 8th September 2014
Due to a critical and immediate family emergency, Austria’s diabolical death / black metal giants BELPHEGOR have been forced to cancel their planned headlining North American “Voices From The Dark” tour with ROTTING CHRIST (Greece), BEHEADED (Malta), and SVART CROWN (France), which was scheduled to launch September 24th in New York City.
BELPHEGOR frontman & 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.”
Conjuring The Dead – the band’s tenth studio album – was released last month and debuted at #13 on the American Billboard Heatseekers chart and at #58 on the Canadian Hard Music chart. Recorded under the direction of Eric Rutan (CANNABAL CORPSE, AGNOSTIC FRONT, MALEVOLENT CREATION), the album artwork was created by Greek artist Seth Siro Anton.
