It wasn't too late, however, for the venue owners to prohibit the bands from appearing. Behemoth, Watain, The Devil's Blood and In Solitude were banned from playing at the original venue because of "religious conflicts with the venue owners," according to a press release from Metal Blade Records. "These bands are no strangers to this type of treatment, and a new venue has already been confirmed. The Columbus, Ohio show will now be at the Alrosa Villa." Commented Behemoth frontman Adam "Nergal" Darski: "Wow, big motherf--kin' WOW! We are facing a legendary moment: America, the land of the free, is banning Behemoth 'cause of religious beliefs. The madness starts in Ohio, but, of course, we are playing anyway. Nothing can stop us now. God, please save me from this freedom..."
