Five Finger Death Punch has issued the following statement about canceling their appearance tonight, November 19th, in Gothenburg:

"Unfortunately, Five Finger Death Punch will not be performing tonight, November 19 in Gothenburg. Zoltan has been violently ill all day with nausea and vertigo. Due to his condition, he was unable to travel last night. We apologize to all our amazing Swedish fans, and we hope to be back next year to make it up to you. He is just now starting to feel better, so we plan on traveling to Copenhagen and playing tomorrow night at The Rock. Shadows Fall will perform as scheduled."

why didnt they do the show as a four piece? i sense a deeper problem within the band i think zoltan has some major alcohol problems and its causing band issues. he keeps getting "sick" this bad where it disrupts the whole band he needs to get medical help this is an ongoing issue he should get checked out. but remember the dissappearing act he pulled because of his drinking and partying? i hope im wrong cuz i really like this band

f*** that, real metal musicians puke blood! On their fans, on stage.. All the time. And if they don't, they f***ing should, because AIDs aint gonna spread the love all by itself! Now go slit your wrists and listen to some serious Valhalla-screaming Metal while you take an R. Kelly piss on the president's daughter. Thanks for your time, and good riddance. Amen, brother, amen. :)

@ Comment 4: thats why i believe there are deeper problems within the band it hink it was just 2-3 weeks go at the most were Zoltan got "sick" and they did play as a 4 piece. jason hook is a good guitar player and very capable of doing things on his own for awhile..armegiddo hit it on the head perfect
