For three days Phil Anselmo’s “Housecore Horror Fest” will take over The Aztec Theater in San Antonio, TX. Tons of awesome bands and film for the Horror genre are par for the course. Plan your attendance now.
I might have only witnessed this musical mastery once but since this is a headlining tour and for something super interesting, I just had to share the press copy that I received the other day. Check it out.
The Press Release:
One-man industrial doom magus, Tristan Shone, more commonly known as AUTHOR & PUNISHER, will bring his tectonic-shifting sound conjurings to the stage next month on a lengthy North American headlining tour. The proceedings will commence on September 17th in Los Angeles and crumble the infrastructures of fourteen venues through October 2nd in Boston. From there, Shone will take a brief respite before pillaging another fourteen venues on a second leg of the tour beginning November 3rd in Brooklyn and running through November 21st in San Diego. The trek includes a performance at Philip H. Anselmo’s annual Housecore Horror gala. AUTHOR & PUNISHER will be joined by special guests, atmospheric drone doom duo, Muscle And Marrow.
“This tour is 100% AUTHOR & PUNISHER as I intended it from day one: designed to be overwhelming, suffocating and disorienting with new tracks, a reinforced A&P-designed onstage sound and a killer touring partner in Muscle And Marrow, from Portland.”
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!

There have been a lot of tour announcements these last few weeks and that is a good thing at the beginning of the summer because it means that we fans of the Metal will have a lot of different things to do with our hard-earned cash. Let’s face it, there are few better ways to spend your free time than with a bunch of your friends going crazy at a Metal show. Speaking of crazy Metal shows, let’s get on down to brass tacks as Phil Anselmo announces the reunion of his band Superjoint (which seems to have dropped the “Ritual” part of their moniker) as they get set to perform the first shows together in more than a decade. The official Press Release follows the poster and then I will close up with some personal insight.
While I didn’t go to this based on the distance, I sure wish that the logistics were not as prohibitive for me and since I know some of you regional site readers are just crazy enough to jump on a plane, train or automobile to get your dose of the Metal, I am sharing this press release and posted that I received yesterday. Take a look.
Legendary metal frontman and Housecore Records founder, Philip H. Anselmo, is bringing his horror-themed film and metal festival back for a third year. After a great ride in Austin, the festival will kick off in San Antonio, Texas at the Aztec Theater on November 13th -15th, 2015.
The decision to return was driven by the desire to honor his friend and festival co-founder, Corey Mitchell, who tragically passed away last October. Mitchell was the driving creative force behind the festival’s success, and Anselmo believes there is no better way to pay tribute to his friend than to carry on for a third year.
“I’ve got a great team in place to help make this what Corey and I wanted it to be,” he says. “There are a lot of mixed emotions here because no one can replace him. But, we know he would want this to continue and so that’s what we’re going to do. We miss him and think about him every day.”
