CATHEDRAL Pulls Out Of Germany’s HAMMER OF DOOM Festival …   3 comments

Via: Blabbermouth

Seminal U.K. doom metal act CATHEDRAL has issued the following update:

“Regrettably, CATHEDRAL will be withdrawing from their planned appearance at this year’s Hammer Of Doom festival [set to take place October 28-29 at Posthalle in Würzburg, Germany). This is due to the use of animal blood as part of the stage show of one of the other bands on the bill. We do not condone nor endorse this type of activity, and in fact we are very much opposed to it.

“We would like to apologize sincerely to any of our fans who were expecting to see us at Hammer Of Doom, but we feel very strongly about this issue and therefore felt we had no alternative but to withdraw.”

Hammer Of Doom festival billing:

MANILLA ROAD
DOOMSWORD
BATTLEROAR
MOUNTAIN THRONE
THE DEVIL’S BLOOD
YET SO FAR
BLOOD CEREMONY
ORCHID
11TH HOUR
SEAMOUNT
DEVIL
AGE OF TAURUS

  1. I just lost ALL respect for Cathedral. What crybabies.

  2. Cathedral have said since day one that they wont play with bands like that and they are sticking with it. I admire them for it, just my opinion.

  3. That may be so and they are entitled to their opinions but professionalism comes before petty beliefs. They just robbed their German fans of one last show. They should've gotten over themselves and been the bigger people.
