Housecore Horror Adds Suffocation
New York black metallers join stacked bill

If the music stages at the Housecore Horror Film Festival couldn't possibly get any more crowded, time to make more room. Seminal New York black metal crew Suffocation will be performing, complete with founding vocalist Frank Mullen.
This morning Austin's newest film and music festival proclaimed, "The blood oath has been signed." The biggest part of the announcement is that Mullen will be fronting the band for this very special show. Arguably the godfather of that death metal roar, he stepped aside from regular touring in 2012, with Bill Robinson of Decrepit Birth and John Gallagher of Dying Fetus stepping into the breach.
Suffocation join an already crammed lineup that includes headliners Gwar, Goblin, Down, Philip H. Anselmo and the Illegals and more. On the film side, the festival has announced special screenings by German gore auteur Jörg Buttgereit and Brazilian horror pioneer Coffin Joe, plus the US premier of new anthology The Profane Exhibit, and a special live soundtrack to Suspiria performed by Goblin.
Housecore Horror Film Festival runs Oct. 25-27: Music, film and combo badges are available now. See www.housecorehorrorfilmfestival.com for more details.
