They will be supporting their 'Boldly Stride The Doomed' album released on May 3rd of this year through Cruz Del Sur Music and their 'Sleeping Dogs' EP released this past July through Pariah Child.
Signed to Pure Steel Records, Keansburg, New Jersey's Power Metal band, Exxplorer was formed in 1982 and their first full length album, 'Symphonies Of Steel' which is hailed as "A truly legendary album" by The Metal Observer, was released in 1984. Subsequent albums followed in 1994, 1996 and of course this year's 'Vengence Rides An Angry Horse' released through Pure Steel Records on October 21st and still receiving great reviews from around the world, these Traditional Power Metallers have made one hell of a comeback!
Exxplorer Played Keep It True XII and Headbanger's Open Air in 2009 and SwordBrothers Festival X in Germany on September 2011 and we are very excited to host them for our Warriors Of Metal Fest V Open Air in 2012.
Also hailing from New Jersey, the Pagan Power Metal band Fiakra (whose band name is an alternate spelling of the ancient Irish word for Raven) will release their second full length album 'Invasion' in early 2012 through Germany's Pure Steel Records. The Warriors Of Metal Fest audience will enjoy their epic Power Metal with hints of Thrash and Death Metal, songs of the dark ages, ancient battles and epic sagas of the past. Those who like their Pagan Metal dished out in full Medieval/Dark Ages armor, swords and battle axes will be in for a treat!
Power Theory hails from Philadelphia, PA and is signed to Pure Steel Records who released their first album 'Out Of The Ashes' at Keep It True XIV on April 29th of this year. They will play at Warriors Of Metal Fest V Open Air in support of the release of their second album, 'Axe To Grind' which is slated for a Spring of 2012 release by the reputable German label.
The seasoned musicians in Power Theory play their no-holds-barred brand of East Coast Power Metal with a European attitude and have shown themselves to be great supporters of rejuvenating and preserving the American Traditional and True Metal scene which is exactly what Warriors Of Metal Festival Open Air is all about.
Metal fans everywhere are highly advised not to miss their chance to see all of these bands in action next summer on June 29th and 30th, 2012 at the Frontier Ranch, 8836 York Road in Pataskala, Ohio (just a twenty minute drive East of the capital city of Columbus, Ohio).

Instead of VIP tickets, interested fans can either sponsor a band or the Fest and receive their special perks based on the Sponsorship, information which will be available very soon.
