Polish blackened death metallers BEHEMOTH have been denied entry into Canada today for the Edmonton and Calgary stops of the Summer Slaughter tour. It seems that Canada decided to change the rules solely for citizens of Poland entering Canada while behemoth was on their way. With Canada Day and July 4th there was no way for them to obtain the last minute forms they required to enter the country.
An official statement from the band reads as follows: "We couldn't be more devastated, having to cancel these shows is one of the worst things we have had to do as a band. Canada has always treated Behemoth well and we were still fired up from our show in Montreal and Toronto. We can't wait to get back to these cities as soon as possible, see you all in Spokane when we meet back up with the tour! Behemoth is still slated to play on this years Rockstar Mayhem Tour on the Hot Topic Stage here in the States."
