CANDLEMASS, DARK ANGEL, RIOT V, CIRITH UNGOL To Headline Houston's 'Hell's Heroes' Festival

On Saturday, April 22 and Sunday, April 23, 2022, a worldwide contingent of music fans will convene at Houston's White Oak Music Hall as Pegstar Concerts presents the Hell's Heroes festival. The two-day music fest will showcase a hand-picked selection of international underground metal bands that includes both seminal, genre-pioneers, highly regarded modern-day groups and more, in a can't-miss concert event. Grammy-nominated Swedish doom metal legends CANDLEMASS, California thrash metal kings DARK ANGEL, New York City metal mavens RIOT V, and trad-metal titans CIRITH UNGOL will headline Hell's Heroes IV in what promises to be a headbanger's heaven. Tickets for the Hell's Heroes festival are on sale now at this location.

"It's beyond words how excited I am that Hell's Heroes is back and better than ever for 2022," says organizer — and NIGHT COBRA frontman — Christian Larson. "Since we had to skip two years due to the pandemic, we decided to add a second day to the festival this time and really go crazy on the lineup! Excited to see everyone in 2022!"

As part of its live coverage of Hell's Heroes, the Houston Press said of the event: "Damn, that was a lot of metal. Hell's Heroes II was conceived as the only heavy metal festival Houston would need in 2019, featuring the kind of rarely seen bands that would draw headbangers from all over town and even the world to see them together on one bill."
