Kirk Hammett Announces Second Fear FestEvil, Murder Mystery Dinner

Image Courtesy of Warner Bros. RecordsNoted horror aficionado Kirk Hammett has announced his second annual Fear FestEvil. The event will be held April 11-12 at the RockBar Theater in San Jose, California, and will once again feature selections from the Metallica guitarist's Crypt Collection of horror collectibles and memorabilia. Meshuggah, High On Fire, Orchid, Blues Pills, Agnostic Front, and Asada Messiah will perform.

New to this year's FestEvil will be a murder mystery dinner hosted by Hammett at San Jose's Winchester Mystery House on April 10. Guests will dine alongside Hammett, tour the infamous mansion and try to figure out the culprit of the night's "murder."

"It has always been my intention that Fear FestEvil events carry both the weird and the loud," says Hammett in a statement. "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?!"
