The much-anticipated final band listing has been announced for Pantera frontman Phil Anselmo’s inaugural Housecore Horror Film Festival, a four day metal and horror film fest which will take place in Central Texas this October.
GWAR, Goblin and Down are among the headlining bands, along with Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, Pig Destroyer and Chris Vrenna. Anselmo says in the press release, “For a cat like myself, bringing in all of these killer bands to play the Housecore Horror Film Festival is nothing but pure pleasure…I feel like we’ve compiled an extremely versatile line-up of established acts, as well as some killer up-and-comers…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!”
Composer and keyboardist Maurizio Guarini, a veteran of legendary Italian prog-rock band Goblin, is holding a CD release release party for his debut solo album Creatures From a Drawer on Wednesday, June 5 at Lula Lounge (1585 Dundas St. West) in Toronto. Maurizio and guest musicians will perform at the party; they’ll be playing songs from the new album, plus a few classic Goblin tunes as well. Doors open at 7:30 p.m., with the show starting at 9 p.m. Tickets are only $10 at the door, or $25 with CD included. For more information, check out the official event Facebook page.
Mark July 2nd as booked if you live in the Toronto area and have been pining to see one or two vintage Dario Argento films on the big screen for a while now. The TIFF Bell Lightbox [TBL] is screening Suspiria (1977) and Opera (1988) that day, although each film is part of two separate series.
As June comes to a close, I figured it handy to do a tally of current and upcoming horror and giallo score releases (digitally + CD). This will be a regular thing because it helps you and me keep track of what the heck is out there – which is substantial. I’ll update the list every two weeks (unless there’s a limited disc announcement that’s sure to result in fast sales), and also encourage readers to post details of upcoming titles I may have missed. (Those wanting non-blood-letting film score release news can also check out my other blog at mondomark.blogspot.com. The run-on sentences are bigger, and the blather is sometimes profound.)
