Hell On Earth Dropped From Sun n' Steel Metalfest

Industrial rock band HELL ON EARTH have been dropped from the bill of Florida's Sun n' Steel Metalfest after "Baptists were calling [the promoter] and complaining about [the band] performing at the show," according to a post on the group's web site.

In response to the cancellation, band leader Billy Tourtelot said, "It's a sad state of affairs when the promoter for a metal festival is more concerned about pleasing a handful of Baptists rather than the fans."

HELL ON EARTH made worldwide headlines late last year when they promised to broadcast the suicide of a terminally ill fan during an Oct. 4, 2003 concert in St. Petersburg. The band played that night, but no suicide was reported. More recently, the group claimed to have engaged in "consensual cannibalism," although footage of this activity has yet to be seen outside the "members-only" section of the group's web site.
