Phil Anselmo said he is choosing to continue with the festival to honor his friend and festival co-founder, Corey Mitchell, who tragically passed away last year:

“I’ve got a great team in place to help make this what Corey and I wanted it to be. 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.”

Anselmo is currently working on booking more acts for this year’s event, along with Maryland Deathfest co-founder, Ryan Taylor.

Phil Anselmo Issues Lengthy Statement About Corey Mitchell

Anselmo said the following about Mitchell’s death:

“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”

The following was posted on the Housecore Horror Facebook page:

“Thank you all for a fantastic weekend – it is, however, with a heavy heart that we here at Housecore Horror Film Festival must announce that our friend and the father of this wicked brain-child, Corey Mitchell, passed away this morning.

Please send your thoughts and prayers to his family. He loved the festival. He loved horror. He loved metal. You damn sure know he loved you guys. Cheers, and thank for your respect during this sensitive time.”

UPDATE: Phil Anselmo has since commented on Mitchell’s tragic death, via The Austin Chronicle:

“We’re really just still in shock. After Danzig was done, Corey and I got up on stage and thanked all the bands and all the fans, the filmmakers, and the Texas Chain Saw people. It’s all just horrifically surreal. This one hurts, man. They all do, but this has a special kind of hurt to it. The event was such a blast, such a success, and everybody had such a great time. Nobody worked as hard as Corey. He believed in it so fucking much. He fought for it every inch of the way. It’s like lightning striking, man, you just never know.”

Napalm Death & Origin Added To Housecore Horror Film Festival

Here’s what Satyricon stated:

“Dear U.S fans. We regret to inform that Satyricon will not perform at Knotfest in San Bernardino, CA and Horror Fest in Austin, TX in October 2014. The reasons for not being able to perform at these two festivals are both pragmatic ones and entirely different from each other. Satyricon will now shift its attention towards the writing of a new album, re-editing the footage from the «Live at the Opera» live album/DVD and another project that will be announced at a later stage. It is important for the band that the U.S fans understand that you are far from forgotten and that the band look forward to come over for a full scale U.S tour as soon as it is possible. You deserve it.”
