British legendary doomsters Cathedral will not appear at this years Hammer of Doom Festival in Germany.
The band issued the following update:
“Regrettably, Cathedral will be withdrawing from their planned appearance at this year’s Hammer of Doom festival (October 28th – 29th 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 apologise 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.”
