Mayhem Cancels North American Tour Dates

Norwegian black metal band MAYHEM has announced the cancelation of their upcoming North American tour. The band has issued the following explanation:

"Despite all attempt to save the USA/CANADA tour we are now forced to cancel it due to the financial situation. We are very sorry for all those who expected to see Mayhem live, we hope the situation will be better next time. We will work hard on getting back over there as soon as possible."

i don't think a comparison between hating mayhem and being psyched about the upcoming cannibal corpse tour is really that justified. i enjoy both bands but that is comparing apples to oranges. Dom Mysterius Sathanas is a great a classic album, but if you don't dig on black metal you are definitely not going to like mayhem.

no one seems to belive me, but the States will not let them in....they'd be considered 'terrorist threat'....take it or leave it
