Heavy metal legend Philip Anselmo and best-selling true crime author Corey Mitchell’s groundbreaking horror-meets-metal extravaganza, the Housecore™ Horror Film Festival, has already released several huge jaw-dropping bands and film events for this year’s lineup including the Official 40th Anniversary Reunion of the surviving cast members of THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE, including “Leatherface” himself, Gunnar Hansen; a TXCM 2 reunion with the cast including Bill “Chop-Top” Moseley; and a U.S. exclusive combined headline performance by the legendary Glenn Danzig of immortal classics from both DANZIG AND SAMHAIN!
Now, they’ve returned for their biggest announcement yet, the return of Philip Anselmo’s legendary band, SUPERJOINT RITUAL!!
It’s all going down at Emo’s in Austin, TX, right before Halloween, between the unhallowed dates of October 23-26, 2014.
Anselmo is keeping a lid on the details at this time, but did state, “If people want to hear Superjoint jam a badass set, then we’re all for giving the people what they want! You wanna hear it? Then bring your asses to Austin, Texas, this October 23-26!”
But wait, there’s more!!!
GWAR – HHFF Creative Director Tammy Moore stated, “I just got back from the GWAR-B-Q and can honestly say that, despite their monumental loss, the band proved that GWAR isn’t just one man. It’s a collective that more than lives up to it’s bigger than life mythos. These guys love Phil and the Housecore Fest and we’re completely stoked that our patrons will get to see first-hand why Oderus himself must be beaming from the home planet at the force with which his brothers carry on the legacy!”
VOIVOD – Anomaly. Seminal. Iconoclasts. A “band’s band.” These are the nebulous words that sum up a group of artists now in their third decade of collaboration and creation. Four young men in Quebec, addled by art, high on hash, fueled by Venom and Motorhead. Post-heavy metal, pre-MTV. The ‘80s were upon them and the threat of nuclear war seemed almost inevitable.
CORRECTIONS HOUSE – This “underground supergroup” featuring Mike IX Williams (Eyehategod, Arson Anthem), Scott Kelly (Neurosis), Sanford Parker (Minsk), and Bruce Lamont (Yakuza) brings an industrialized sludge that conjures up an impossible-to-pinpoint kaleidoscopic synthesis of mechanical decomposition, atmospheric abnormalities, and poetic putrefaction.
MOBILE DEATHCAMP – This is what happens when an ex-GWAR member, Todd Evans, crafts speed metal so sharp it can justifiably be classified as a weapon.
WAR MASTER – Houston, Texas based death metal sensations have generated an ear-splitting buzz with their full-throttled thrashing attack.
Anselmo is pumped for the sequel to HHFF. “This year’s Housecore Horror Festival, Part 2, will once again be a blast, and I encourage anyone who fancies themselves a TRUE Horror fan to join us in another memorable, insane event! Films, Texas Chainsaws, special guests, and incredible bands galore!”

Danzig, Samhain, Neurosis, Eyehategod, Satyricon, Cattle Decapitation, Portal, Macabre, Unearth, Decapitated, Lustmord, SubRosa, KEN mode, King Parrot, Wizards of Gore (AKA Rigor Mortis), Hobbs’ Angel of Death, Warbeast, Ringworm, Acid Witch,Archspire, Author & Punisher,Witchburn,Fulgora (featuring members of Pig Destroyer & Misery Index), Krigblast (featuring Felix Griffin from D.R.I.), Gasmiasma (feat.
