Metallica‘s second Orion Music + More Festival is creeping up on us as summer draws near. To get fans pumped for the diverse fest, Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett has revealed a mass of details about the ‘Kirk’s Crypt’ exhibit, which will include meet + greets, Hammett’s massive collection of vintage horror film posters and more.
‘Kirk’s Crypt’ will allow fans to delve deep into the horror obsession held by the Metallica guitarist, along with indulging their own love of all things frightening. Orion attendees will be given the opportunity to meet Gunnar Hansen, who played Leatherface in the original ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre,’ gore master Tom Savini (Dawn of the Dead, Creepshow), actress P.J. Soles (Halloween, Carrie, Rock ‘N Roll High School), fellow actress Jordan Ladd (Cabin Fever, Death Proof) and terrifying actor Bill Moseley (House of 1000 Corpses, The Devil’s Rejects).
There will also be panel discussions that feature Hammett himself, horror vendors, trailers for upcoming zombie flicks and many of the greatest highlights from Hammett’s book, ‘Too Much Horror Business.’
Metallica recently posted about ‘Kirk’s Crypt’ via their Facebook page:
