Post Sodom: cancelling MDF appearance
http://www.marylanddeathfest.com/news

Quote:
SODOM CANCELLING THEIR APPEARANCE AT MDF XIII. The government approved the visa petition for SODOM, but then failed to send the required documents that would have allowed the band to actually get their visas despite repeated attempts by the MDF and the band to get those documents. The parties have been unable to get any answer from the government as to why the documents were never received by MDF or the band. The band is incredibly frustrated by this and so are we. We take a lot of pride in doing everything in our power to get foreign bands to the states, but it's really hard for us to swallow when the incompetence of the U.S. government messes this up. SOLSTICE will be playing instead of Sodom. This will change the schedule for that stage slightly and we'll update the website with these changes this evening.

Seems like at least every couple years one of the big bands cancels at the last minute.

How is it that other bands manage to seem to get over visa issues just fine? :?

Sodom apparently needs to get their shit together.

I bet this shit doesn't happen with Babymetal.

It happens pretty much every year. I don't think it happened in '11 but that was pretty shocking.

Sodom has canceled three out of five North American appearances.

Minneapolis Mayhem 2 (2005)
Maryland Deathfest 8 (2010) along with other US dates.
Maryland Deathfest 13 (2015)

They came to Noctis in Calgary in 2010 (single show).

And they had a North American tour in 2006 with Finntroll.

They are one of my favorite bands, but what gives?

Sometimes it's the management, but often it's the governments processing the VISAs. In Canada the best way to get is to join a musicians union (somewhere between $200-$350 per meber), then the VISAs get approved in a few weeks (this costs about the same as the union dues). If you aren't a union member it can take months to get approved, and there's never a guarantee of actually getting approved, even if all your gigs are contracted.

This was a great show for SODOM, but what a terrible pairing of bands.
