Bad news, good news.
First, the bad news. Unfortunately, Suffocation will not be able to perform at the inaugural Housecore Horror Film Festival due to personal scheduling conflicts. The band is bummed and we are bummed, but we all understand that there are real-world priorities and we hope that we can bring Suffocation to HHFF in 2014.
Now, the good news.
We are beyond happy to announce that Philip Anselmo’s good friend Erik Rutan will be bringing in the brilliant death metal masters Hate Eternal to HHFF!!! Philip and Erik go back to their days when Philip brought out Erik and Morbid Angel out on a U.S. tour with Pantera, Slayer, and Motörhead.
Rutan said of the two tours he did with Pantera, “We toured together for 16 weeks. Those 16 weeks were life changing for me in so many ways. Being a guy who has just been content touring and recording records all these years, to have the opportunity to play arenas with one of the biggest and best metal bands out there was overwhelming, for I never thought that opportunity would ever happen yet it did. It changed my life forever.”
Hate Eternal has released several genre-defining death metal albums such as Conquering the Throne, King Of All Kings, and Phoenix Among The Ashes.
Rutan also has a successful career as a highly sought-after producer and has worked with such top acts as Cannibal Corpse, HHFF’s own Goatwhore, Soilent Green, Madball, Agnostic Front, Vital Remains, Nile, Krisiun, Devourment, and many more.
We are sorry that Suffocation cannot make it, however, we are ecstatic to have Hate Eternal come on board HHFF.
The fiendish minds behind the Housecore™ Horror Film Festival – legendary metal frontman Philip Anselmo and best-selling true crime author Corey Mitchell – are excited to announce that Italian horror maestros Goblin will now include original member Massimo Morante on guitar, along with previously announced members Claudio Simonetti and Maurizio Guarini, bringing the three main men of Goblin together. They will be joined by Italians Bruno Previtali on bass guitar and Titta Tani on drums. The five musicians are considered to be the entire, most complete line-up of modern-day Goblin.
Anselmo and Mitchell made the announcement of Goblin’s appearance at the inaugural Housecore™ Horror Film Festival this past April. It was announced then that Goblin would live-score the entire screening of Italian Master of Horror Dario Argento’s 1977 classic, SUSPIRIA for the first and only time in North America.
