Housecore Horror Film Festival Day 3

A good night’s sleep and mild weather helped me catch a second wind on the fifth consecutive day of metal concerts. I watched NWOBHM legends Satan at Beerland on Wednesday, the day before HHFF kick-off party. The sun’s rays dimmed just a little due to Superjoint Ritual backdrop and a breeze gave us some relief while catching the bands on the Midway stage. For me, today’s activities didn’t start there, though, it started at the Grindhouse tent located around the side of Emo’s. More...

Satyricon Drops Off Housecore Horror Film Festival

We regret to inform everyone that Norwegian black metal legends Satryicon will no longer be able to perform at this year's Housecore™ Horror Film Festival. The band explained via its official Facebook page:

"Dear U.S fans. We regret to inform that Satyricon will not perform at Knotfest in San Bernardino, CA and Horror Fest in Austin, TX in October 2014. The reasons for not being able to perform at these two festivals are both pragmatic ones and entirely different from each other.

"Satyricon will now shift its attention towards the writing of a new album, re-editing the footage from the 'Live at the Opera' live album/DVD and another project that will be announced at a later stage. It is important for the band that the U.S fans understand that you are far from forgotten and that the band look forward to come over for a full scale U.S tour as soon as it is possible. You deserve it." More...

Inter Arma Comments On Upcoming Shows

Richmond, Virginia's tour-incessant tonal decimation crew Inter Arma recently announced the confirmation of a maiden European trek, now set to take place just after the already looming U.S. tour with Russian Circles and KEN Mode, which is less than two weeks from embarking.

Inter Arma guitarist Trey Dalton commented: "We've heard nothing but pretty incredible things about how awesome it can be touring in Europe, and needless to say we're very ready to experience that for ourselves. We're most definitely looking forward to playing at Roadburn as we're basically pals with half the bands playing, not to mention that we'll be with some of our best friends in Windhand for the majority of the tour. That being said, I think we're pretty excited about all of the shows. Most of us haven't done a lot of international traveling at all so this is a pretty righteous opportunity."

While still touring in support of the "Sky Burial" LP, the name of Inter Arma's recently recorded EP has been announced as "The Cavern," which encompasses a sprawling forty minutes of material. A final release date and further details on "The Cavern" EP will be released upon its completion. Catch Inter Arma live:
