Phil Anselmo and Corey MitchellHousecore Horror Film Festival co-founder/best-selling true crime author, Corey Mitchell, suffered a deadly heart attack early Monday morning at Emo’s, venue home of the event. Mitchell’s tragic and untimely passing follows the fest’s second epically successful weekend of metal and horror.

 

Said partner/Housecore Records head, Philip H. Anselmo, in an official statement: “This is stunning. After a weekend of incredible bands, awesome horror films and masses of fantastic people, tragically, unexpectedly, and with heart-crushing reality, co-founder of The Housecore Horror Film Festival, Corey Mitchell, passed away Monday, October 27th 2014, after the event ended. This is devastating on so many levels, I can’t and won’t go into how tremendous a loss Corey’s untimely death truly is. I was introduced to Corey first and foremost as a best-selling crime author, and shortly after that meeting I agreed to have him as my co-writer of an unfinished novel I’d been working on. It was his idea to create a horror and film festival that would became The Housecore Horror Festival. He had a vision, and no one worked harder than him to see the event through. But forget festivals. Forget books. We lost a great friend. From all of us here at Housecore Records, we extend our utmost condolences to his wife, Audra, and his two beautiful young daughters. This is devastating on countless personal levels, and I’m finding it difficult to type these lines. We lost a brother. We lost a great man with a passion for everything that we love. He will be unfathomably missed… RIP Corey. His legacy will never be forgotten, nor will his friendship. With supremely heavy hearts, we mourn. Sincerely – Philip H. Anselmo”

 

Corey Mitchell was a Los Angeles Times and Borders International Group bestselling author of several true crime books including Hollywood Death Scenes, Dead And Buried, Murdered Innocents, Evil Eyes, Strangler, Pure Murder, and Savage Son. Mitchell was also the founder of the #1 true crime blog, In Cold Blog, a former blogger for the Discovery Channel’s Hollywood on Crime blog, contributor to MetalSucks, and the horror film festival blogger for Bloody Disgusting. Mitchell’s eighth true crime book, Teach Me To Kill, about the murder of Diane Tilly, will be released in the coming weeks. A fund is being set up to help Mitchell’s wife Audra and two daughters. Details to be announced soon.

Anselmo onstage at Emo’s last year for Housecore Horror BY JOHN LEACH

Pantera legend Phil Anselmo remains an expert on at least two disciplines: extreme music and horror films. Accordingly, the two intersect this weekend at his Housecore Horror Film Festival. In honor of this monster convergence of movies and heavy metal, the singer reunites Superjoint (sans Ritual) on Sunday at Emo’s.

The three-day event, organized by Anselmo and true crime author and Austinite Corey Mitchell, runs through Sunday at Emo’s and Midway Field House (the old Antone’s) on the same block. Dozens of new and classic film screenings, panels, and live performances from Neurosis, Danzig/Samhain, Gwar, Eyehategod, Napalm Death, Portal, Cattle Decapitation, Decapitated, and more. Lamb of God vocalist Randy Blythe submits to an interview and metal-worshiping comic Brian Posehn also performs.

Austin Chronicle: This festival’s tailored for people who love metal and horror movies. Where do those art forms crossover?

Phil Anselmo: It harkens me back to my gut feelings on genres like death metal. I don’t even think there’d be death metal if it weren’t for the classic possession movies like The Exorcist or Evil Dead. I think the guttural sounds of the demons inspired death metal vocals big time. Horror flicks also have religious overtones – Rosemary’s Baby – and bands have always exploited that symbolism in their content. Just look at black metal.

AC: What’s a band the average fan might not know, but that you’re pumped to see at HHFF?

PA: I’m going with Portal from Australia. They’re the greatest death metal band right now and that’s saying a lot. They’re unique, insane, and extremely technical, but they have a looseness about them. They’ve almost invented their own type of groove.

AC: Danzig and Samhain are huge scores for the Festival. Were you a Misfits fan growing up?

PA: Absolutely. One hundred percent.

AC: Glenn Danzig shares your love for horror movies. What’s your relationship with him like?

PA: We’ve always been friendly with each other. I grew up a huge Misfits fan. When Pantera was just dippin’ our toes into mainstream waters, Danzig already had a successful solo career. The first time we met, I was in Los Angeles and Pantera was opening for S.O.D. That was a hell of a show. Glenn was in the audience and on my way backstage we made eye contact. I thought, “This guy has no idea who I am,” but he walked up to me, shook my hand, and smiled.

He gave me props right off the bat because I was always wearing Misfits shirts. Being the aggressive type of frontman I am, Glenn has always been a huge influence. The respect there was super mutual and always has been and still is to this day.

AC: How does the music lineup come together for Housecore?

PA: A lot of times it’s me saying, “I want this band!” I also get bounce back from Corey or one of the other coordinators who know which bands are available and we got to try and grab them. A lot of bands book their whole year ahead of time, so all that’s a little fuckin’ tricky. But a lot of the time, it’s my choice. The other 30 percent of the time, it’s suggestions.

AC: Last year HHFF had Down and Phil Anselmo & the Illegals. Did you decide to do Superjoint this year to do something different?

PA: According to Corey Mitchell, there was a poll taken of what reunion band the audience wanted the most – excluding Pantera because we know the problems there – and Superjoint got voted in. It wasn’t something I’d even considered. We put our heads down, thought about it, and I always want to give the people what they want. So Jimmy Bower and I got together and started jamming. It felt really good so we said, “Let’s just go kick fuckin’ ass on a one-off show. No harm, no foul.”

AC: So no follow up tour?

PA: Nah, not right now, Jack. I’m booked. All of a sudden, there’s offers coming in, but I’m not taking any of that shit seriously.

AC: Who’s rounding out the lineup?

PA: We’ll leave that element a surprise because we do have some tricks up our sleeve.

AC: I wondered if Bobby from Down is involved because he’s an Austin favorite.

PA: No, but Bobby’s a fuckin’ fantastic help to the entire festival. He’s one of the greatest. We are talking about my Bobby from Down correct?

AC: Our Bobby – Bobby Landgraf from Honky!

PA: Ah hell yeah, that’s right. Austin’s boy! He’s been an incredible ambassador for this festival. He helps make this shit happen.

AC: What was your favorite moment from last year’s HHFF?

PA: Having Goblin there scoring Susperia was amazing. That was surreal. Dale Crover jamming with Eyehategod was unbelievable. Without the Melvins, the entire New Orleans thing as far as slowcore goes – I don’t know what the fuck else to call it, most media call it sludge, but we’re kind of against that around here – that slow and deliberate playing in a Black Sabbath type fashion, the Melvins were the biggest influence. Especially for Jimmy Bower to start a band like Eyehategod. To see Dale up there, in the wake of the death of Joey LaCaze, was incredible.

Last year was so laid back and cool. It had this adult family atmosphere. What a fuckin’ blast man. I can’t wait for this weekend.

AC: Okay man, keep the festival in Austin.

PA: Fuck, I love Austin, man. Texas is my second home and I’m making sure people know that.

640x360Phil Anselmo has been forced to delay the release of his forthcoming book Mouth For War: Pantera And Beyond.

Written by Anselmo and Corey Mitchell, it was originally due to be published in January – but the frontman has been too busy touring with Down and Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals to complete the project.

He tells Jack Antonio: “The autobiography is something I’ve got to delay because I’ve been working my ever-loving balls off this entire year. To really get down and write a comprehensive, fun book to read, I can’t have any other distractions. Because living out on the road is one thing and I have a set regimen and I really can’t deviate from that process.”

He continues: “I haven’t had much time to think about the book all that much aside from keeping in touch with Corey. I know he’s been busy organising the Housecore Horror Film And Music Festival himself.

“There is a little bit of a delay on the book. The more I learn about it and its release date, the more you cats will learn about it. But as of right now, it’s just hit the brakes.”

The book is billed as “a no-holds-barred look inside of Philip’s brain, his history with Pantera, the loss of his best friend Dimebag Darrell and an unflinching examination into the downward spiral of pain and drug addiction that nearly cost him his life.”

Anselmo will play the Housecore Horror Film And Music Festival in Texas later this month. He’ll reunite with Superjoint Ritual under the shortened name Superjoint for the show – but he’s insisted it’s “100% a one-off.”

Phil Anselmo has hailed the jazz and funk influence on New Orleans metal bands in the latest episode of a series exploring the area’s heavy music scene.

NOLA: Life, Death & Heavy Blues From The Bayou is a seven-part series looking at the history of Pantera, Corrosion Of Conformity, Down, Goatwhore, Acid Bath and others as they cemented a heavy metal genre from the culture of New Orleans.

In episode four, the Down and former Pantera frontman hails New Orleans drummers and the way they embrace jazz and funk influences of bands like The Meters.

Anslemo says: “I think that there’s a certain groove here. Homegrown drummers specifically have that behind the beat feel. Like The Meters, the funky, funky Meters. If you look at the funk and groove within that genre, if you pull it off in heavy metal – boom, it’s super effective. It’s showstopper, it’s badass.”

Crowbar frontman Kirk Windstein agrees that the diversity of the area’s music scene makes its metal acts unique.

He says: “We grew up on a plethora of different styles of music. Like the jazz stuff – stuff that you couldn’t help going to your grandparents’ house and they’re listening to, like Dr John records. People would be jamming on the albums at barbecues. It’s the only city I’ve been to that has this kind of vibe.”

The beginning of the last day of Motorhead’s Motorboat Cruise began on a peaceful note as we went to the aptly named Serenity Deck for some rock and roll yoga, which featured Led Zeppelin tunes. The rest of the last day aboard the Carnival Ecstasy was anything but peaceful and serene.
Lines of fans wrapped around the ninth floor of the ship as crowds gathered for David Ellefson’s book signing, along with meet and greets with Motorhead, Zakk Wylde, Down and numerous others.

Over on the Deck Stage, female fronted band Cilver gave a memorable second performance. Later in the day, High on Fire’s set was one of the best on the outdoor stage. Down members Philip Anselmo and bassist Pat Bruders were rocking out in support of High on Fire’s incredible set. After that, Zakk Wylde also performed his second acoustic set of the cruise.

In the Starlight Lounge, some serious partying was going on as Danko Jones tore it up in the very intimate space. Party band Wilson also performed their second set to round things off on a fun note.

The foundation of the Blue Sapphire Theater might never be the same again as it saw a lot of action on the final day at sea. Heavy hitters Testament, Anthrax and Motorhead all played their final sets of the cruise.

The almighty Metal Allegiance of all-star jam ended things right. While the set included many of the musicians from the first Metal Allegiance set, it also boasted a guest appearance from Testament guitarist Alex Skolnick, plus Motorhead members Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee joined Anthrax’s Joey Belladonna onstage for one song.
Philip Anselmo rounded out the night as he performed Pantera songs like ‘Goddamn Electric’ and ‘5 Minutes Alone.’ Of course the night ended with ‘F—ing Hostile.’ How could it not?

As we pulled into Port of Miami with ears ringing and sore necks, we soon realized that Motorhead’s Motorboat Cruise was one boat ride that both metal fans and bands will never forget. We can’t wait for Motorboat 2015!

Episode 1 “Origins”: Metal god Philip H. Anselmo reluctantly agrees to share his heavy metal wisdom with delusional manchild Dave Hill.

Here is how a press release for Metal Grasshopper, a new web series starring former Pantera frontman Phil Anselmo and comedian Dave Hill, promotes it: “If you like stuff with corpse paint, burning pentagrams, medieval weaponry, irritable goats rented by the hour, couples counseling, delicious smoothie recipes, and real live chickens that basically don’t give a f*ck about anything, you are totally going to love Metal Grasshopper, because it has all that stuff and then a bunch of other awesome stuff on top of that too.”

Well, okay then!

FULL DISCLOSURE: My pal and fellow Lower Garden District resident, Chris Lee — the husband of former White Zombie guitarist Sean Yseult (together they once owned the legendary NOLA dive, The Saint) — produced, co-wrote and co-directed Metal Grasshopper. He described it in an email saying, “Created by me, Philip, and Dave, (Metal Grasshopper) is an important five-part series in which Philip schools Dave in the ways of heavy metal at his house deep, deep in the woods of Louisiana.”

Enjoy.
