Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett (aka Kirk Von Hammett) will be throwing the second installment of his annual Fear FestEvil horror convention at the RockBar Theater in San Jose, CA on April 11-12, 2015, with Meshuggah, Agnostic Front, Orchid, Blues Pills (North American debut), High On Fire and Asada Messiah performing.

SiriusXM’s Liquid Metal host José Mangin and Nikki Blakk of Bay Area rock station 107.7 The Bone will preside over the musical mayhem at the RockBar, where another exhibit of some of the finest pieces in any modern collection of horror memorabilia will be on display.

“It has always been my intention that Fear FestEvil events carry both the weird and the loud,” states Kirk Hammett, “and what better way to achieve another extension of what we want to do than eat dinner in a haunted house while solving criminal acts before a weekend of super kick-ass music?!”
