I just received some new press alerting type stuff discussing several awesome additions to this this year’s edition of the “HOUSECORE HORROR FEST” and if this is something that you don’t know a stitch about, it’s a massive event that was formed under the watchful eye of Phil Anselmo. I’m sure you know who that is at least. Anyway, it’s not anywhere near my wonderful Metal Metropolis, but check out the poster and bands playing along with the official press copy. I have to admit that I love this new poster since its a play on “Dawn Of The Dead”.
This November, Philip H. Anselmo’s Housecore Horror Fest will celebrate its third year of audio and visual bedlam. Set to commence in San Antonio, Texas at the Aztec Theater (201 E Commerce St.) on November 13th -15th, 2015, the horror-themed film and metal gala promises to be louder, gorier and more bludgeoning than ever before boasting two film-screening rooms, multiple vendors, special artist signings throughout the weekend and what’s morphing into one of the most debilitating lineups of the year!
Already stacked with a crushing bill that includes Agoraphobic Nosebleed performing their second show ever, Corrosion Of Conformity featuring Pepper Keenan, Claudio Simonetti’s Goblin doing a live score of George Romero’s Dawn Of The Dead, Superjoint, Eyehategod, Nails, Crowbar, Dropdead, Autopsy, Poison Idea, and so many others, the gatekeepers of Housecore Horror Fest today welcome the additions of thrash metal icons, Exodus, veteran death metal legion, Incantation, apocalyptic hardcore punk unit, Gasmiasma, atmospheric drone doom duo, Muscle And Marrow and theatrical heavy metal legend King Diamond whose performance will feature 1987 quintessential second full-length, Abigail, in its harrowing entirety! As an added bonus, Gwar’s fabled Sleazy P. Martini will also be attending the annual gathering as a special guest!
And the awesome won’t stop there. The fest has expanded the range of its grotesqueries, with a second stage located just steps away from the Aztec Theater. The Korova, at 107 E. Martin St. in San Antonio, will play host to even MORE bands throughout the weekend. Stay tuned for additional band announcements for The Korova in the coming weeks.
Comments Anselmo: “I am beyond excited to announce that the mighty King Diamond will be attacking the house on Friday the 13th at the Housecore Horror Festival. All hail the King.”
Adds Maryland Deathfest co-founder Ryan Taylor, who’s shaping this year’s HHF lineup alongside Anselmo: “It’s been a lot of fun piecing together this lineup with Philip. It’s gonna be a wild one, so get your tickets while you still can!”

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Man this sure sounds like an event that will leave you Metal “Blind In Texas” in my humble opinion and if you can pardon the bad WASP pun, I am purely stressing that this overall affair seems like an awesome one. As new bands are added to the mix I will append the listings and now as you can see the great King Diamond has joined onto the event. Yes I placed this in my “Upcoming Tours” part of the site and that is mainly to perhaps tip their ears about bringing this on the road to a few other markets if at all possible. I know I cannot get out to Texas for this one but if you go please let us know how it was and have a few steaks for me. That is some good stuff for sure (I am recalling my visit to Dallas, TX many years ago and slavering about the choice cuts I enjoyed). Anyway, there is really a diverse mix on this event and I don’t think any fan will leave dissatisfied. What do you readers think about this particular Festival event? Will you be ordering tickets and heading to the Southwest? Let me know in the comments.
