Mainman John McEntee of Pennsylvania-based death metallers INCANTATION has issued the following statement regarding the band's abbreviated June 24, 2007 concert in Santiago, Chile:"We need to apologize to all the people that came at to the Santiago, Chile show on June 24th. Five minutes after we arrived at the venue, we were told that the police wanted to shut down the show. The promoter Jose (from Inferno Rock Store) did some negotiations with the officers and then told us that the police gave them one hour before they were to shut it down. If the show wasn't over by then that the police would use force to break it up. So to try to prevent a riot, the promoter told us to rush on stage and do a short FUNERUS set then immediately do as many INCANTATION songs as possible. We were not happy with the situation but at the moment it seemed like the only option. The bottom line is that we hope the people from Santiago understand we wanted to give them a professional show like we were able to do at the other cities on the tour. Due to the unfortunate situation, we felt that playing some songs were better then nothing. We look forward to returning to Santiago to do a show the right way and give the die-hard INCANTATION supporters the best performance possible." INCANTATION's seventh album, "Primordial Domination", was released last fall on Ibex Moon Records.
