Cincinnati, Ohio – The Warriors of Metal, Inc. non-profit organization is honored to be able to welcome back the Houston, Texas Power/Speed Metal legends of HELSTAR  as the Saturday headliner for our Seventh Annual Warriors Of Metal Fest.

Band vocalist James Rivera states: “Here I go again; round three for me to appear at Warriors of Metal Festival, at its new location O’Sheckys LIVE in Columbus, Ohio!  My first time performing at WOM was when HELSTAR headlined the fest in 2012 along with MANILLA ROAD at its former grounds in Pataskala, Ohio. The band and I had an awesome experience our first time around, we were treated very well by the organizers Datis & Lea Alaee and their organization and given a warm welcome by the fans. Due to overwhelming popularity in the Midwest U.S. region and with veteran WOM festival goers, I was invited back as the headliner in 2013 to premiere my solo project, JAMES RIVERA. Once again, I received unbelievable treatment and to say the least, I’m always overly flattered by the kindness of everybody involved in WOM. Now I’ll be returning for the seventh edition of WOM Fest with HELSTAR headlining on Saturday, June 28th, and there’s no better time to have us back. We have a new album coming out on April 29th entitled “This Wicked Nest”, which will be on the streets for two months by the time we hit the stage at WOM. I feel it’s the strongest HELSTAR record to date and will embrace all HELSTAR fans, old and new, throughout the decades. We even went as far as writing an instrumental to please the neoclassical metal admirers, which features guitarist extraordinaire Jeff Loomis (NEVERMORE, SANCTUARY, CONQUERING DYSTOPIA). The most exciting part about the HELSTAR shows in 2014, is not only are we going out in support of our new album and playing many great songs from previous albums, but it also happens to be the 30-Year Anniversary of the release of “Burning Star”, our debut album that put the band on the metal map of the world in 1984.  So what we will be doing for all of our shows in 2014 (beginning with our European tour) is supporting “This Wicked Nest” and including a special 30 year salute to the “Burning Star” album. This means we will be playing an extended set with Burning Star songs as our encore.  So for the old school HELSTAR fans, this is a show you will not want to miss! WOM is the first and only confirmed Midwest appearance for HELSTAR so far this year.  Hope to see you all there!”
