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 -themed film and gala promises to be louder, gorier, and more bludgeoning than ever before. This year’s event boasts 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. But, the gatekeepers of Housecore Horror Fest have just welcomed 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.
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.

Horror filmmakers are also encouraged to submit their films and winners will be selected in various categories and given the coveted Rot-Scar Award. And yes, Anselmo does watch them all.
