Metallica's inaugural Orion Music + More festival continues to grow.
The event has announced the addition of Kirk's Crypt, a showcase of guitarist Kirk Hammett's passion for all things horror - vintage film posters, movie props, collectibles and more... all hosted by The Ripper himself.
Explaining how he first got into horror movies, Kirk explained, "Five years old; I sprained my arm so I couldn't go out and play. I was sequestered inside because I had to recover from my arm. Turned on the television; the first horror movie I've ever seen was on that night - 'The Day Of The Triffids'. I saw that movie and, from that point on, I was just hooked... those are the type of movies I gravitated to."
Kirk's Crypt joins other features at the event, including Ktulu's Rock 'N' Roll Emporium, a marketplace with dozens of vendors selling memorabilia; and, the Orion Custom Car + Motorcycle Show, curated by frontman James Hetfield, which is set to feature over 300 of the best Customs, Hot Rods, Muscle Cars and Custom Motorcycles on display inside the festival grounds throughout the weekend.
Orion Music + More happens June 23-24 at Bader Field in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
