ITP V.014 REVIEW: THE RUINS OF BEVERAST: BLOOD VAULTS: THE BLAZING GOSPEL OF HEINRICH KRAMER:
FROM THE RUINS OF BEVERAST:
As some of you might have noticed, DROWNED and ourselves had to cancel our appearance on the US-Minitour with ANICON on short notice, due to the chaotic bureaucracy that is the US-authorities.
Our deepest regrets go out to the patient and helpful promoters Paul and Stefan, to Anicon, and of course to all of you.
Please gather details of this utterly sad and annoying story from the comments of INHALE SPIRITS MUSIC (see below) and of Paul/METAL THREAT FEST (see further below).
On behalf of The Ruins,
For a deeper understanding a quote from the lawyer: "US visa law seeks to make sure that US musician’s jobs are not threatened by foreign musicians unless the foreign musicians are so renowned that a US employer would want them for uniquely who they are, rather than merely for their ability to complete a task. As such, there is a wide swath of performing artists who are not renowned enough to “deserve” a work visa, but are not amateur enough to be seen as non-threatening to the US labor market."
We'd like to thank Paul and Stefan for their effort and hope you support their events even more now by giving this explanation. Nonetheless, we will be looking into setting something up at a later point in time."
Thanks-Stay Metal, Stay Brutal-\m/ -l-
