Kirk Hammett is taking his love of horror memorabilia to the next level.  The Metallica guitarist has announced he'll host his own horror convention early next year.

Dubbed Kirk Von Hammett's Fear FestEvil, the event will feature the guitarist participating in panel discussions, autograph signings of exclusive toys and books, photo opportunities, and private tours of his personal collection of horror memorabilia in Kirk’s Crypt.  The event also will feature performances from a number of bands, which will be revealed in the coming weeks.

You may recall that Hammett released 228-page coffee table book last year, Too Much Horror Business , that profiles his extensive horror memorabilia collection.

Kirk Von Hammett's Fear FestEvil will take place February 6-8 at The Regency Ballroom in San Francisco.  Visit the event's Facebook page for more information.
