PHILIP ANSELMO's HOUSECORE HORROR FESTIVAL To Return For Third Year

Legendary PANTERA 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 13-15.

The decision to return was driven by the desire to honor Anselmo's 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."

Bands already confirmed to play are SUFFOCATION, AUTOPSY, CRIPPLE BASTARDS, NAILS, SYK & Dalila Kayros, YOB, EYEHATEGOD, CHILD BITE, WARBEAST and many more to be announced soon. Maryland Deathfest co-founder Ryan Taylor will be booking bands this year and will help Anselmo craft a musical lineup that would make Mitchell proud.

In addition to showcasing the best in extreme metal, the festival will screen film gems from the personal vaults of both Anselmo and Mitchell. Horror filmmakers are encouraged to submit their films and winners will be selected in various categories and given the coveted Rot-Scar Award.

"When Corey and I started this thing, it was important to us that we help independent filmmakers get their incredible work discovered," Anselmo continues. "Nothing has changed, in that respect."

Tickets will go on sale soon.
