Death metal band Exhumed were forced to pull out of their Halloween show in Canada on Wednesday (31Oct12) after they were denied entry to the country.

The group was scheduled to play for fans in Montreal, but border officials banned the rockers from entering Canada.

The band has taken to its Facebook.com page to apologise for the last-minute cancellation and to tell fans their show in Toronto on Thursday (01Nov12) is also in jeopardy.

The post reads, "We are super bummed that the Canadian border patrol has denied us entry to their otherwise fine country today (Wednesday) and forced us to cancel our Halloween show in Montreal. We even had ridiculous costumes prepared!

"We are doing everything in our power to sort out the paperwork to make the Toronto show (on Thursday), but it doesn't look too likely."
