    (Correction 5:59pm, 4/18/19: Horna was previously reported as opening for All That Remains. They actually just had a show at the same venue on a different stage.)

    In Finnish, “Horna” means ‘abyss’ or ‘hell.’

    Horna is a Finnish black metal band with extensive ties to national socialist black metal (NSBM.) What is NSBM? Well, most people know “national socialists” better as Nazis.

    Horna attempted to play 14 shows across the United States between March 28th and April 10th.

    11 shows were cancelled.

    3 shows kept the original venues.

    5 shows had to change venues in the same city.

    4 shows had to be moved to different cities.

    2 shows didn’t find new venues.

    3 shows had to change venues twice or more.
