Phil Anselmo's Housecore Horror Film Fest linup

Official press release: It's less than five months before horror and metal collide in Central Texas at the inaugural Housecore Horror Film Festival – the ultimate 4-day, underground fan event celebrating the twisted line where horror films and heavy metal meet. Today, festival creators – legendary metal frontman Philip Anselmo and best-selling true crime author Corey Mitchell – are excited to announce more than 30 bands that will be playing the inaugural Housecore Horror Film Festival. "For a cat like myself," Philip Anselmo says, "bringing in all of these killer bands to play the Housecore Horror Film Festival is nothing but pure pleasure. I'd like to thank all of the bands from all over the globe that are on the bill. I feel like we've compiled an extremely versatile line-up of established acts, as well as some killer up-and-comers. I'd also like to give a huge "thumbs-up" to all of the Austin, Texas bands that will be a huge part of this crazy event, because it seems these bands fly way too far below the radar. As for what bands I'm most excited about? I don't need to call out specific bands…just look at the list yourself and get pumped! I hope everyone who plans on attending the Housecore Horror Film Festival is digging on the band line-ups, as well as the films, like I am. Let's have a blast!" In addition to the powerhouse roster of bands appearing at the festival, the organizers have announced that Italy's Goblin will perform two sets at HHFF. The already announced North American premiere of the band live-scoring Dario Argento's seminal horror classic, Suspiria, in addition to a second night concert performance featuring classics from such landmark horror films as Dawn Of The Dead, Tenebre, Deep Red, and more. The Suspiria live score and screening will close out HHFF on Sunday, October 27th. Down, GWAR, Goblin, Whitechapel, Repulsion, and Pig Destroyer will headline stages at two historic ATX venues, Emo's and Antone's. The entire event kicks off Thursday night, October 24th at the Dirty Dog bar, on fabled 6thStreet in downtown Austin. That evening's showcase of up-and-coming metal bands will serve as a badge and wristband pick-up event and will be open to the public as well. Down Gwar Goblin Philip H.

For those that care... Death Will Tremble = Prey For Sleep The name-change coincides with the line-up change.

There are no local bands playing at Dirty Dog. Austin bands playing at Emo's and Antone's include Skrew, Ancient VVisdom, Dead Earth Politics, HeadCrusher, and Death Will Tremble (formerly Prey For Sleep). Also, Honky plays across the street from Emo's at The Buzz Mill (owned by Antone's).
