I’m in the process of changing to a new online store. We should be all set at chamucoatx.storenvy.com by the end of this week. In it you will find my posters and random pieces of art… who knows, maybe other stuff too.
For those of you waiting for the Housecore Horror Posters I have an update:
– I’m sorry (well, not really) to tell you that the poster for Goblin “sold out” an hour before they hit the stage. I would only consider making a variant of the poster (different colors) out of respect for the ones who acquired the orginal poster… and only if enough people are interested in it…. so, let me know what you think and we’ll take it from there.
GWAR, Down, Coffin Joe, and EYEHATEGOD posters will be in stock, as well as a few of the older posters.
Keep an eye for a few VERY LIMITED editions… (Down Gold variant, GWAR signed by band, Down signed by Phil Anselmo).
Thanks for your support. Keep it weird.
I know… it’s been a while since I posted anything here… no excuses.
In the next few days I will post photos of all the posters that will be available at the Housecore Horror Film Fest. For those of you not attending the show I will save a limited number of posters. More info soon.
Now you know it… I’m not dead… yet.
On top of all the great bands we get to see Pig Destroyer and Repulsion? Shit… you can’t miss this festival… you just CANNOT MISS THIS FEST!
Below you will find my latest contribution to the Housecore Horror Film Fest. Very stoked to play a small part of this great event.
From HHFF press release:
Philip Anselmo’s Housecore Horror Film Festival announces horror history-making event
Legendary Horror Rockers Goblin to Perform Live Score of
Dario Argento’s 1977 Masterpiece Suspiria
Maestros of Suspense Maurizio Guarini and Claudio Simonetti make first-ever appearance in North America
AUSTIN, Texas—It’s exactly six months before horror and metal collide in Central Texas at the inaugural Housecore Horror Film Festival – the ultimate 3-day, underground fan event celebrating the twisted line where horror films and heavy metal meet. Today, festival creators – legendary metal frontman Philip H. Anselmo and best-selling true crime author Corey Mitchell – announce that influential Italian progressive rock band Goblin will be performing their iconic score to Dario Argento’s 1977 horror masterpiece, Suspiria, live at Housecore Horror Film Festival.
Marking their first-ever performance in North America, Goblin’s horror rock maestros Maurizio Guarini and Claudio Simonetti will fulfill fans’ dreams and nightmares as they perform their notably eerie soundtrack for Suspiria live during a screening of the classic and revered horror masterpiece.
Says Anselmo of the epic performance, “Goblin is, in my view, one of the ultimate horror bands in the history of the genre. I still listen to them often, especially on tour. To have Goblin play the Housecore Horror Film Festival is like I’m living in a strange, dark dream, where nothing is quite geometrically correct, but I want to keep delving further while Goblin dirges onward underneath the bleak imagery.”
Formed in the early 1970s, the progressive rock group is best known for creating the suspenseful and tense soundtracks for horror movie classics including Joe D’Amato’s Buried Alive (aka Beyond Darkness), George Romero’s Dawn of the Dead, and Dario Argento’s Deep Red and Suspiria.
“We are beyond excited to bring the sounds of Goblin and Suspiria to the United States for the very first time! And to be able to perform the score before a live audience while they watch Dario Argento’s masterpiece on the big screen is incredible,” says Maurizio Guarini of Goblin’s involvement. “We are thrilled that Philip Anselmo has asked us to come perform at the Housecore Horror Film Festival. It will certainly be an event for everyone to remember.”
With Suspiria, Argento was able to create a new level of terror by playing with the viewers’ imaginations via his use of screaming, vibrant colors and the horrifying, heavy sounds created by Goblin. The release of the horror classic was a watershed moment for artistic direction in horror films. Rarely before had a horror director leveraged such stylistic flair to expose the depths of our darkest thoughts.
“There are few bands more technically adept at creating an actual atmosphere of tension, occult speculation, or delicate knife-twisting suspense, than Goblin. Their use of sonic keyboards and electronic soundscapes is beyond unique,” says Anselmo.
“All hail the mighty Masters of The Macabre timbres!” he adds.
The Goblin/Suspira screening joins an already heavy list of festival performances, screenings and special events that have been announced to date, including concerts from Down, Crowbar, Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, EyeHateGod, and Warbeast; special guest appearances by noted and notorious filmmakers Coffin Joe, Jörg Buttgereit, and Jim VanBebber; and Void ov Voices – another one time only, metal-meets-horror event with extreme metal vocalist Attila Csihar (best known from iconic black metal band Mayhem) using sonic manipulations to create a live soundtrack for The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari.
Many more bands, special guests, films, and special events to be announced over the next few months.
Housecore Horror will present the German masterpiece in all it’s glory with a live score by Attila Csihar of Mayhem/Sunn O)))/etc fame.
