The following messages have been posted on the official Dark Funeral website:
"We are sorry to inform that DARK FUNERAL, NAGLFAR, AMORAL & ASMODEUS gigs in Lódz and Katowice have been cancelled. Massive Music would like to apologize for all inconveniences caused to Dragon Productions and the bands. The cancellation is beyond our control, we are entirely helpless in the face of the present political situation in Poland. "

"We understand this has really nothing to do with Dark Funeral alone as a band, but by a musical scene the Polish Catholics obviously wish to forbid. To us this is just another proof of the hypocrisy that lies behind organised religions. They happily promote tolerance, yet, as soon as they see something they dislike, they are fast as a shark to call for censorship. The thing is, reactions like this will most certainly give the opposite result, it always does! We would however like to apologize for all inconveniences this has and will cause our Polish fans, but this is unfortunately beyond our control"
