Guitarist/vocalist Bart Frydrychowicz of the Canadian technical metallers QUO VADIS has issued the following update:"I just wanted to thank all the fans who showed up at the Ontario shows [in late December]. In the end, we made it to Hamilton [on Dec. 28] seven hours late due to mechanical problems with our bus. We were told 3/4 of the people had already left not believing we could make it, and the rumor was made more believable since the Toronto show got cancelled due to the venue being shut down by the feds.
We did everything we could to load and set up and we ended up starting around 2:15 a.m. and got cut off at 3:00 a.m. To all the diehards who stayed behind, we salute you! To the other couple of hundred who couldn't make it, we'll be back and put together a special show for you guys. "The London show [on Dec. 29] made it all up for Hamilton, cheers to everyone from Toronto and Hamilton who drove a few hours to come and see us in London! Cheers to everyone we met, we had a blast and we'll be back. "Finally, the Toronto show [on Dec. 30] was cancelled; we only found out while on the road and had no way of updating the site with this info, apparently the venue was shut down by the government due to some permit issues. We heard there that no note or announcement was made at the venue and a couple dozen fans waited in the cold with no sign of life inside. The promoter had told us he had spread the word and made announcements everywhere, however it turned out that tickets were still being sold online and there was no note at the venue. We will try to find out more and let you know what happened. "Again, many thanks to all that came out to see us; we will be back with full force!" QUO VADIS will support KATAKLYSM on their "The Road To Devastation" European tour beginning on January 4 in Arnhem, Holland. Also scheduled to appear are NEAERA and FEAR MY THOUGHTS. QUO VADIS in 2005 issued a triple-DVD, entitled "Defiant Indoctrination". The set was filmed on May 7, 2005 at the Medley in Montreal. The band peformed their third album, "Defiant Imagination", in its entirety as well as songs from their previous releases.
