Corey Taylor, Slash + John 5 Added to Kirk Von Hammett’s Fear FestEvil 2015 Lineup
Metallica's Kirk Hammett recently announced that he was bringing back his Fear FestEvil horror and music event back for a second year. Now more details have leaked out about what's in store for those attending the festivities.
Corey Taylor, Slash and John 5 have reportedly signed on to take part in a panel at the event. All three rockers have ties to the horror film industry. Taylor recently appeared in the film 'Fear Clinic' and has his own film and television company called Living Breathing Films with his fellow Slipknot cohort Shawn Crahan.
Slash started his own film production company Slasher Films and has released the thriller 'Nothing Left to Fear,' for which he also provided music. John 5, meanwhile, has played guitar for horror rock icons Marilyn Manson and Rob Zombie. It's that latter relationship that also led to his scoring Zombie's 'The Lords of Salem' horror film.
It is not known if any of the three rockers will actually be taking the stage. Meshuggah, High on Fire, Agnostic Front, Orchid, Blues Pills and Asada Messiah have all signed on for the music portion of the weekend, playing at the RockBar Theater in San Jose, Calif. on April 11-12.
The festivities also include a murder mystery dinner/VIP party being held at the Winchester Mystery House in San Jose on April 10. Taylor is also expected to be one of the murder mystery cast members. And there will be plenty more horror themed attractions taking place throughout the weekend.
