About:

Featured in publications such as Metal Hammer and Billboard, Metalocalypstick Fest not only celebrates women in metal but also gives back to the community. Formed in 2016 as a non-profit organization, they are dedicated to raising funds and donating 100% of proceeds to local charities Girls Rock Camp, Vancouver Rape Relief and Women’s Shelter, and Earth Protectors plus they sponsor an independent band picked by Metalocalypstick Fest judges.

The festival was founded by Kaija Kinney of Vancouver’s Anarcheon after researching a lack of female based metal festivals to apply her band to, Kinney took matters into in her own and decided to produce the event.

“This festival means the celebration of both sexes coming together and creating something amazing. People like to say women in metal aren’t a big deal anymore and that we are all the same. I feel that is untrue, this is still a male dominated world and woman are still looked as lesser. I want to showcase all these bad ass ladies and celebrate the differences of men and woman rather than pretend we are all equal. Truth is we are different why can’t we celebrate that?” says Kinney.

Philip H. Anselmo’s Housecore Horror Festival Returning For Year Three

Posted in Extreme Metal, horror movies, Metal, Music, rock music with tags , , , , , on May 20, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

Housecore Horror Festival - November 2015 - promo flyer - #111315MOPHA

Legendary metal frontman and Housecore Records founder, Philip H. Anselmo, is bringing his horror-themed film and metal festival back for a third year. After a great ride in Austin, the festival will kick off in San Antonio, Texas at the Aztec Theater on November 13th – 15th, 2015.

The decision to return was driven by the desire to honor his friend and festival co-founder, Corey Mitchell, who tragically passed away last October. Mitchell was the driving creative force behind the festival’s success and Anselmo believes there is no better way to pay tribute to his friend than to carry on for a third year.

“I’ve got a great team in place to help make this what Corey and I wanted it to be,” he says. “There are a lot of mixed emotions here because no one can replace him. But, we know he would want this to continue and so that’s what we’re going to do. We miss him and think about him every day.”

Bands already confirmed to play are Suffocation, AutopsyCripple Bastards, Nails, SYk & Dalila KayrosYOBEyehategod, Child BiteWarbeast and many more to be announced soon. Maryland Deathfest co-founder Ryan Taylor will be booking bands this year and will help Anselmo craft a musical lineup that would make Mitchell proud.

In addition to showcasing the best in extreme metal, the festival will screen film gems from the personal vaults of both Anselmo and Mitchell. Horror filmmakers are encouraged to submit their films and winners will be selected in various categories and given the coveted Rot-Scar Award. “When Corey and I started this thing, it was important to us that we help independent filmmakers get their incredible work discovered,” Anselmo continues. “Nothing has changed, in that respect.”

Tickets to go on sale soon! Stay tuned for additional announcements.

BLASTFEST Announce Final Bands Including WATAIN

Posted in Extreme Metal, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on October 28, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Blastfest - 2015 - February - promo festival flyer - Satyricon

The lineup announcements had to come to an end eventually and Blastfest have now revealed the final 3 bands to the main lineup. But that’s not to say what you see on the burgeoning Blastfest poster is all that’s happening. No, no, no, there will be more!

There’s already a lineup that would bring tears to the eyes of even the toughest metalhead with bands such as Demilich, Satyricon, Decapitated, Paradise Lost, At The Gates & Moonsorrow… and just last week a cruise up the Norwegian fjords with live bands was announced as part of the first days festivities. We still have to hear more… the clinics, the stand up comedy, the exhibitions, and lots more have yet to be revealed!

For now, let’s leave this here… Sweden’s Uppsala upstarts, the black metal powerhouse, the entity of its own who released possibly their best work to date just last year with ‘The Hunt’, yes, the mighty Watain have been announced as another Blastfest 2015 headliner. The festival has also welcomed Austria’s sickest death metal export Schrinec Plays Pungent Stench and Bergens blackened deaththrash horde Grimfist.

Watain - promo band pic - 2014 - #6679W

WATAIN

Are you sworn to the black? Well, then you’ll be happy to hear that the final Blastfest headliner for the sophomore edition of the festival will be none other than the Swedish legions of the black light, Watain! Prepare yourself for fire, brimstone, and the real deal; carcasses, blood, foul stench and hatred in abundance. Lawless darkness commence!

Schrinec Does Pungent Stench - Promo band pic - 2014 - #70

Schrinec Does Pungent Stench

Blastfest bring you a nice little platter of splatter! Schrinec Does Pungent Stench! They will be playing the twisted material from the Austrian cult band’s first three albums. Basically there’s going to be some proper old school death metal coming your way.

Grimfist - classic band logo - B&W - 2014

GRIMFIST

Norwegian Grimfist released two highly-acclaimed albums around the turn of the century, and seemed to disappear into obscurity not long after. But lately, they’ve been at it again, flying high the banner of brutality! At Blastfest 2015 they will be doing their first show in eight years with an as-of-yet still undisclosed new lineup. You’re probably in for yet another all-star Norwegian ensemble!

Lineup:

Alfahanne | Aspherium | Asphyx | At The Gates | Baptism | Blood Red Throne | Bolzer | Bömbers | Borknagar | Byfrost | Craft | Crib45 | Cryptopsy | Dark Funeral | Dark Tranquility | Dead To This World | Decapitated | Demilich | Den Saakaldte | Djevelkult | Destroyer 666 | Destruction | Endstille | Esoteric | Falloch | Finntroll | Gehenna | Grimfist | Hecate Enthroned | Impaled Nazarene | Kall | Melechesh | Moonsorrow | Morgoth | Naer Mataron | Orange Goblin | Paradise Lost | Primordial | Purple Hill Witch | Rotting Christ | Samael | Sarke | Sarkom | Satan | Saturnus | Satyricon | Schrinec Plays Pungent Stench | The Sickening | Tortorum | Tsjuder | Vallenfyre | Watain | Winterfylleth | Wyruz

ANGER AS ART – To Headline Puerto Rico Show For Rock Spot Plus TV; Special ABATTOIR Set Planned

Posted in Heavy Metal, heavy metal albums, Metal, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news, Thrash Metal, thrash metal bands with tags , , , , , , on November 21, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

Thrashers ANGER AS ART will be headlining a festival-style show in San Juan, Puerto Rico on December 15th that will be broadcast on TV show Rock Spot Plus. The gig will be recorded/videotaped for possible future release by ANGER AS ART. In addition to performing ANGER AS ART material the band will close out the performance with a short set of ABATTOIR songs.

A promotional video for the Rock Spot Plus show can be viewed here:

ANGER AS ART will release Hubris Inc. on February 5th,  2013 via Old School Metal Records. ANGER OF ART founder and Veteran of the Metal Wars Steve Gaines (Abattoir, Bloodlust, Tactics, Bitch, Dreams of Damnation, Pagan War Machine) states that the band’s fourth album, which follows the well-received Disfigure, offers the kind of vicious, memorably penned Thrash/Speed Metal that fans have come to expect without simply retracing the steps taken on previous albums.

Adding to the album’s immense appeal is a range of special guest appearances. “Rage and Retribution” features Betsy Bitch on vocals, Jim Durkin (Dark Angel) on lead guitar and Timothy Gaines (Stryper) on bass. Steve Nelson (Evil Dead) contributes backing vocals on “The Evil You Create.” And last but certainly not least, “Speed Kills,” which features Mark Caro (Abattoir) on lead guitar, was actually written for Abattoir back in 1984 and is performed by all Abattoir members.

1. Hubris Inc.
