See Great Metal Bands At Shaun Luu Horror Fest

If you're in the Syracuse, NY area, there is a really awesome fest to go to this weekend. This fest combines two great things: b-movies and metal/hxc/punk music.

The Shaun Luu Horror Fest is an annual music/movie festival held in memory of Shaun Luu, who died in 2005 from brain cancer. From the fest site:

"Shaun was an amazing guy who was a big part of the Syracuse, NY hardcore/metal community. He sang for Word As A Virus and was a constant face in the crowd at pretty much every kind of show around here. He meant a lot to a lot of people and the fest is our way of remembering him and giving something back.

All the money made gets donated in Shaun's name to fight cancer. The first few years of the festival the money was donated to the American Cancer Society. Last year we decided that the money should stay local so we set up a few funds at University Hospital/Golisano Childrens Hospital in Shaun's name. One of the funds is to support brain cancer treatment and research at University Hospital, one fund is to get some new games and things for the activity room on the cancer ward in the children's hospital (the current activity room is run down and sparse...there are kids there that spend months stuck in the hospital, sick, and depressed as hell...it'd be nice to get some better things in there for them. Keeping peoples spirits up can make all the difference in fighting a disease), and the last fund is to raise money to build a new nurses station in the new children's hospital that will be marked in memory of Shaun."

So you can see eight movies for $20 on Saturday, then for $10 you can see twelve great bands, and at the same time help give some hope to cancer-stricken youth. You'll see the itinerary and all information after the jump.

Ed Gein Announces Their Return

Ed Gein has announced their return. Here's the message from the band:

"Ed Gein is not broken up. We are actually finally going to get together and start playing again. It's been difficult to get all our work schedules and lives to line up, and to be honest, after years of constant touring and everything we weren't in a huge hurry. But it seems we've got a game plan now and are going to see what happens. None of us are sure exactly where this is going to go but I think I can say with some certainty that you shouldn't hold your breath for any tours. Maybe a few scattered shows...maybe a short tour in the very distant future...but right now we all just want to write some tunes and enjoy our home lives. We are planning to get together next week to practice together for the first time in over a year and a half. Should be interesting to see what happens..."

Ed Gein In Preproduction

Ed Gein is taking a much need break after successful summer tour with Genghis Tron and Gaza. “That tour was amazing… Both bands rule and are really great guys. Best tour we've done in a loooooong time” comments bassist Aaron Jenkins. Later this year Ed Gein will be working on a soon-to-be-announced split release before finishing the writing for their new album. ”We'll be back to writing our next full length [soon]. We aren't planning any tours for the time being. We need a retreat back to real life for a while so we can all keep our sanity, work on new songs... We'll be out touring again after the new full length comes out, but we'll probably do some weekends here and there in the meantime, maybe a week long run.” Ed Gein has posted lyrics to their forthcoming release on their MySpace page. If the lyrics are any indication, their newest effort will be as hard-hitting and brutal as previous releases.

Ed Gein Clears Up Confusion On Slaughter Fest

Ed Gein has posted a message clarifying the confusion around Slaughter Fest and the fact that they are not playing at that festival:

"Ed Gein is NOT playing Slaughter Fest in Rochester, NY on November 24th."

"We were asked if we would like to play but did not confirm one way or the other that we would or wouldn’t because we didn’t know if we would be able to. I do not know why we are being advertised on this show. We did NOT agree to play it. And as of last night I found out that we will definitely NOT be able to play it due to prior engagements. I apologize for any confusion caused by the people posting false information."

"Again, ED GEIN DID NOT AGREE TO PLAY THIS SHOW, AND IS NOT PLAYING THIS SHOW. If it's not listed under our shows on our myspace page, then it’s bogus."

"In REAL show news, we actually WILL be playing Rochester on December 2nd at the Steel Music Hall with Psyopus. I am waiting for all the exact info and as soon as I have it it will be up on our page. – Aaron"

TTEOTD To Support Children of Bodom, Chimaira

South Carolina's death metal road warriors Through The Eyes of the Dead have been confirmed as support for Children of Bodom's upcoming North American tour. Also featuring Chimaira and God Forbid on select dates, Through The Eyes of The Dead will round out the tour's lineup on 18 of the 19 dates across the US, joining up on March 19.

This tour is the latest in a string of live dates and tours Through The Eyes of the Dead has been a part of since the release of the band's Prosthetic Records debut, Bloodlust. Having already trekked out on headlining and support tours alike since the album's October release, Through The Eyes of the Dead are a perfect example of hard work bringing success to a band. The band will be filming the debut video from Bloodlust in March, and in the meantime will continue its current tour with Ed Gein, The Number Twelve Looks Like You, Animosity, and Despised Icon, including a stop at Los Angeles Murderfest on Feb. 19.
