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!”

Cincinnati, Ohio – The Warriors of Metal, Inc. non-profit organization is very excited to welcome back the only band to headline the fest three years in a row. Dallas-based Traditional Metal professionals ASKA, who headlined in 2009, 2010 and 2011, has officially signed on as the Friday night headliner for our 7th annual Warriors Of Metal Fest. ASKA will be supporting their sixth studio album, Fire Eater which was released through Germany’s Pure Steel Records in September of last year.

The 7th annual Warriors of Metal Fest will be held June 27 – 28 at O’Shecky’s LIVE Bar & Grill in Columbus, Ohio.

Band founder, vocalist and guitarist, George Call states: “When we here at ASKA were approached by the brain trust about coming back to Warriors of Metal and headlining Friday’s portion of the fest I said, ‘Awesome! Who do we gotta kill?’ Not because we actually wanted to kill anyone but you get the sentiment right? After all, who wouldn’t want to get back to, perform for and hang out with those beloved portions of our extended metal family that the Warriors of Metal Fest has come to represent? See, WOM is not just a fest where we perform for fans but one in which we bleed, sweat, laugh and commune with our brothers and sisters of Metal. It really is one big family and the ‘blood’ that unites us is STEEL. And so it is with that sentiment that we look forward to this latest installment of the Warriors of Metal Festival, now indoors, come June – because just as much as you want to see ASKA, ASKA wants to see you. Dig? Hail and see you all at WOM Fest VII!”

The band’s official music video for the track “Dead Again” can be seen and heard below:

ASKA is brought back to Warriors of Metal Fest VII due to the generous fan sponsorships by Kit & Jen Ekman from Mobile, Alabama, brothers Edward and Mike Schmidt from Cleveland, Ohio, Dennis Schwan and Megan Stewart from Detroit, Michigan, and last but not least, Lance Souther & Laurie Rhodes from Dayton, Ohio. We are grateful for their contributions and constant support through the years.

Tickets are on sale and various levels of sponsorship opportunities are now available at the Fest’s website at www.warriorsofmetal.org.

Lords Of The Trident - promo band pic - 2014 - #58810

Cincinnati, Ohio – The Warriors of Metal, Inc. non-profit organization is very excited to welcome back the Madison, Wisc., power metallers who rocked the Warriors Of Metal Fest III & IV Open Air shows in 2010 and 2011, the LORDS OF THE TRIDENT!

Fest organizer Datis Alaee comments: “Not only did this band inject a lot of fun into our annual summer festival but the band’s most outgoing and ‘vocal’ personality, Ty Christian has been a source of incredible support for us, showing up each subsequent year in 2012 right in the middle of the storm we were being hit with and 2013 with more and more metalheads from Wisconsin to enjoy themselves during our metal weekend in Ohio.  Those friends have since become new festival fans who are becoming repeat attendees!  That kind of support is very rare and very much appreciated!!!”

Band founder and vocalist, Lord Fang Von Wrathenstein states: “The LORDS OF THE TRIDENT are excited to be able to return to the Warriors of Metal fest, and do battle with all of the other true METAL bands and fans out there. It has been two years since our last appearance at the fest, and this has given the fest organizer the proper time to rebuild the stage, put out all of the fires, bury their dead, and fill in the giant crater caused by our 2011 performance. We are once again ready to melt faces, abduct Ohio’s women, and slay all the unworthy who stand in our path. We sincerely hope that the venue has installed the necessary shock absorbing concrete slabs to withstand the earth shattering, inferno-producing metal we plan to unleash. WARRIORS! Ready your axes and prepare your strongest armor – YOU SHALL NEED IT!”

January 24, 2014 Cincinnati, Ohio - The Warriors of Metal, Inc. non-profit organization is excited and privileged to announce that Massachusetts-based, Eurocentric Power Metallers ARMORY have chosen the Warriors Of Metal Fest VII to host its first and only Midwest performance in 2014. The band will be appearing in support of their sophomore release, Empyrean Realm, which came out late last year. Much like the band’s 2007 debut, Dawn of Enlightenment, this album was released independently, but this time through the band’s own label, Metavania Music. Warriors of Metal Fest VII will take place on Friday and Saturday, June 27 & 28 at O’Sheckeys LIVE Bar & Grill in Columbus, Ohio.

Band founder, guitarist and studio drummer Joe Kurland states: “It feels great to finally play a show outside of the Northeast and the timing is perfect to showcase songs from our new album, Empyrean Realms! Warriors of Metal Fest VII will be Armory’s first Metal festival and we couldn’t be more excited to be a part of such a premier event.”

Grave Robber - promo live photo - 2013 - #6767

January 23, 2014  Cincinnati, Ohio – The Warriors of Metal, Inc. non-profit organization is very excited to announce that Fort Wayne, Indiana’s premier Horror Punk band GRAVE ROBBER has gladly accepted the unenviable challenge of being the “show closer” and final performer for the Pre-Fest Showcase of the Warriors Of Metal Fest VII, which will take place at O’Shecky’s LIVE Bar & Grill on Thursday, June 26 in Columbus, Ohio.

Vocalist Wretched states:  “We are honored and excited to have been invited by Datis to play the Warriors Of Metal Pre-fest and our second time on the O’Shecky’s stage. As a theatrical horror punk band, we have always had utmost respect for all things metal and have always included touches of metal in our artistic vision of horror. In fact, similar to The Misfits, we have found that quite a large percentage of our fanbase are straight up metalheads who hate punk, but somehow find common ground with Grave Robber and love what we do. We are greatly looking forward to playing way too loud, way too fast, way too aggressive and making some friends and comrades in aggressive musical endeavors. Thank you again, Datis from the bottom of our reanimated, undead hearts. Be afraid, be very afraid!”

Believe the hype with the official music video for GRAVE ROBBER’s “Altered States,” now playing below:

Crusader - Onward Into Battle - promo cover pic - 2013

January 20, 2014  Cincinnati, Ohio – The Warriors of Metal, Inc. non-profit organization is pleased to announce that NWOBHM-inspired Heavy Metal/Thrash act CRUSADER has been confirmed for this year’s Warriors of Metal Fest. The Chicago-based band appeared as an 11th-hour replacement act for last year’s pre-fest showcase and will hit the main stage this year in support of their Stormspell Records release Onward into BattleThe Warriors Of Metal Fest VII will be held at O’Sheckys LIVE in Columbus, Ohio on June 27 and 28.

Check out album track “Hopeless Destiny” below:

Fest organizer Datis Alaee comments: “Crusader was brought to my attention by the former Chicago Thrash Metal guitarist Alex Manske of Degradation who played their penultimate Live show at Warriors Of Metal Fest V Open Air in 2012 and upon contacting and subsequently booking Crusader for our Pre-Fest Showcase, I was really impressed with the way these guys re-arranged their schedules at the last-minute so that they could come down to Ohio and rock our socks off.  And if that was not enough, they stuck around and supported ALL the other bands that played that night.  They only left the venue because we were getting kicked out and by then most of the other bands who played that night were already gone.  That was very impressive to me so right then and there I vowed to bring them back to Ohio so that they could play on our main Fest stage in 2014!”

CRUSADER drummer Colin Holmes states: “It’s an honor to be able to participate alongside such a great and growing lineup at WOM Fest for the last two years.  We’re really looking forward to getting on the main stage this year hot on the heels of the release of Onward into Battle, our first full-length album through Stormspell Records.”

Burning Shadows - band logo - 2013 - #2299

January 17, 2014  Cincinnati, Ohio – The Warriors of Metal, Inc. non-profit organization is excited to announce the confirmation of Maryland Power Metallers BURNING SHADOWS, whose awe-inspiring performance at 2012′s Pathfinder Metalfest V as a support band for the legendary Raven led to the Warriors Of Metal Fest organizer Datis Alaee to comment:

“I had known Burning Shadows for a while at that time since my friend Tim Regan had sent his band’s previous albums for air play on my Metal Messiah Radio show.  But making our annual pilgrimage from Ohio to Georgia to support our friend Hoyt Parris with the 5th edition of his Pathfinder Promotions’ Metalfest series, Burning Shadows was a definite not-to-be-missed band for me and boy did those guys deliver!!!  My neck was wrecked, my ass was kicked and my face was melted.  Big kudos to Hoyt for such an awesome booking!  After their performance I went over to my wife and said ‘We HAVE TO get these guys to our Fest!!!’”

Band guitarist Tim Regan states: “We are thrilled to join the lineup for Warriors of Metal Fest VII! It is a huge honor to be part of a festival that always brings together so many amazing acts. We are grateful to battle alongside so many like-minded bands, organizers and fans. Datis has been a strong supporter of ours and we very much look forward to bringing our music to new audiences looking to help us prove that true metal is alive and well. Many of our favorite bands that we’ve shared the stage with have played this festival in years past and we’re excited about what’s in store for 2014.”

The band has posted the song “A Thousand Lies (Abridged),” from their Last One To Fall EP – take it in below:
