The festival was able to condense four hours down to one but the first day of HHFF started an hour late. I didn’t expect to see any of Evil United since they were suppose to have ended at 12:30, but my 1:15 arrival time allowed me to catch a couple of songs from the Austin-based band. Evil United may be local, but the group consists of veterans such as Jason McMaster—who was well known in the eighties as front man for Dangerous Toys and Watchtower. In addition to Evil United, he now sings in Ignitor and Broken Teeth. McMaster’s voice soared through the parking lot that comprised Midway’s stage, Evil U was the sole representative of classic heavy metal at the festival. More...

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...

Evil United, which features Jason McMaster (Watchtower, Broken Teeth, Dangerous Toys), Don Van Stavern (Riot, Sa Slayer) and Shakes West (Murderdolls, W-13, Sebastian Bach), has released a new music video for the song "Viking Funeral," which can be viewed in the YouTube player below. For more info on the band, head over to Facebook here.
Evil United has just released the band's first full-length self-titled album, which features the throat of Jason McMaster on vocals (Broken Teeth, Watchtower, Dangerous Toys) the earthquake rhythm section of Don Van Stavern (Riot, S.A.Slayer) on bass, Shakes West (Murderdolls, Neurotica, Sebastian Bach) on drums, and rounding out the evilness are the speed picking twin axe attack of guitarists T.C. Connally (PB/DC, Cult to Follow) and John Valenzuela (PB/DC, Urial).
The band has now posted a video clip online for the song "Dawn of Armageddon," which is available below. T.C. Connally comments on the video:
"When we started to scout locations for the Dawn of Armageddon video shoot, we really didn't have to go far from our Texas home base. Texas has had record droughts and hellish high temperatures this year and at times it really felt like the dawn of armageddon. Most of the video was shot at a dried up lake bed during the 110 degree drought. We also drove out to Bastrop, Texas and got some footage of the damaged caused by the Bastrop fires. The Bastop Texas fire was a major wildfire that struck Bastrop county Texas on Sept. 2011 and was extinguished in Oct. 2011. Thousands of homes were destroyed making it the most destructive single wildfire in Texas history. We feel the video captures a glimpse of the destruction most of the world is seeing in 2011 but through the eyes of our home state of Texas." More...
