MARDUK: Athens Show Cancelled

Swedish black metallers MARDUK have cancelled their previously announced January 15, 2008 concert at the Underworld Club in Athens, Greece. According to a statement released by the Athens-based booking agency Sold Out Promotion, "The reasons of the cancellation are due to the band. The management of the touring party informed us that the transportation of the touring party to Athens from Turkey by ferry is impossible and so there is no other option than to cancel the show. We are sorry for any inconvenience this cancellation may cause but unfortunately it's beyond our control."

In addition to MARDUK, the Athens concert was scheduled to include performances by IN BATTLE, ZONARIA and ARTISIAN.

MARDUK's new album, "Rom 5:12" was released in North America on May 22 via Regain/Koch (April 24 in Europe).
