Diabolic In, 1349 Out, aka Thanks A Lot, You Stupid Fucking Volcano!

Metal Chris sent word via the Cannibal Corpse myspace blog, that Norwegian black metal band, 1349, will not be able to participate in the first few dates of the tour. they’re stuck in Europe due to the volcano. not only that, but their visas that they applied for months ago, still have not been cleared. what does America have against Norwegians, anyways? I was actually looking forward to seeing 1349 more than CC. hopefully, they will be able to reschedule the dates, as part of their own headlining tour, sometime in the near future. on a positive note, I guess this will give me more time to get familiar with their new album Demonoir which comes out on the 26th. here’s the official statement:

Norwegian black metallers 1349 will be unable to make the first few shows on CANNIBAL CORPSE’s “Evisceration Plague Tour” that is scheduled to kick off today (April 20) in Orlando, Florida.

Commented 1349 in a statement: “Unfortunately, we will have to let all our fans know that we will not be able to make it to the first shows of the tour with CANNIBAL CORPSE. First of all, our visas, which we have applied for months ago, are still not being cleared, and secondly, air traffic in Europe is being a major problem in the last couple of days and still will be in the next days.

“We are trying our best to join this tour. However, right now we are not able to tell anybody when and if this is going to happen. As soon as we have any news on the situation we will let you know.”

In the meantime Diabolic are confirmed to jump on the Cannibal Corpse tour to fill in for 1349 until the band makes it to the states. Skeletonwitch will be main support, Diabolic will be second, and Lecherous are opening up. This will be the lineup until the Long Island show at which time we hope to have more info on 1349. Stay posted to MetalBlade.com and CannibalCorpse.net for details as they become available.

and so it looks like 1349 will be missing the show at Jaxx this Friday, BOO!!!

    I’ve heard that 1349’s drummer, Frost, has an arrest record for arson of a church or something equally as kvlt, and when he first toured the US (with Satyricon) he accidentally filled out paperwork incorrectly saying he’d never been arrested of a violent crime (apparently he thought they meant in the US only) when he in fact had. This has given him and 1349/Satyricon many problems with visas in the US and always seems to come up again. Also, the US has changed the requirements and even the way it handles work visas in the past year, so this has affected many foreign bands (not just metal ones) and is the main reason why so many foreign bands’ tours have been canceled of late. If they don’t have their visas yet, it’s highly unlikely they’ll be getting them any time soon and I’d bet they won’t be on the rest of the tour either.
