Carcass, Death Angel Sign On For Metallica Guitarist’s Fear Fest

Death Angel

That’s right, kids.

Carcass, Death Angel and Orchid have all been confirmed for Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett’s upcoming horror convention, “Kirk Von Hammett’s Fear FestEviL.”

Set for The Regency Ballroom in San Francisco from February 6 to February 8, it’s basically a way for Hammet to show off his impressive cadre of horror movie memorabilia.

“I’ve always loved horror, I’ve always loved collecting, I’ve always loved weird and macabre things and I’ve always loved conventions,” he says.

And now, I no longer respect you.

“So what could be better than having your own Fear FestEviL where ALL those great and crazy things can be enjoyed by like-minded people under one pretty cool roof?! Nothing!!!

“And because I’ve seen some conventions turn from back-room gatherings of like-minded dorks into mainstream hipster extravaganzas, rest assured that it’s my intention to make this a great experience where all things horror, weird, and nerdy are celebrated,” he says. “So come one and all!!!”
