At long last, Hells Headbangers announces the final lineup for their three-day "Hells Headbash - Part 3" festival, set to take place in Cleveland, Ohio on September 2nd-4th.
After the resounding success of their first "Hells Headbash" in 2014 - which was held at the label's distribution warehouse, and was filmed for a special DVD release - Hells Headbangers last year expanded the fest to include two additional days and with an even more epic lineup of HHR-affiliated bands in support of the label's 15th anniversary. The resultant turnout for "Hells Heabash - Part 2" exceeded everyone's expectations, and was even more of a resounding success than the first installment.
Set to take place at the world-renowned Agora, "Hells Headbash - Part 3" will feature the first American performances by Goat Semen, Atomic Aggressor, Scythian, Demona, and Armour, and exclusive performances by underground legends Incantation, Angelcorpse, Grand Belial's Key, Revenge, and Demoncy. As well as extremely rare appearances by Intolitarian, Void Meditation Cult, and new signees Hobbs' Angel of Death and Rotten UK, "Hells Headbash - Part 3" will also a few bands outside the Hells Headbangers label like the aforementioned Angelcorpse, Grand Belial's Key, and Demoncy. Spanning the spectrum of death metal, black metal, thrash, grind, metalpunk, and plenty of filthy points in between, the full list of bands are as follows:

Label head/co-founder Chase Horval had the following to say about "Hells Headbash - Part 3": "Since last year exceeded our expectations and the demand for a return was so great, we decided to have another go at it, but this time with a less-is-more approach by having 26 bands instead of 35 and with a later start time of 4 pm each day to allow more time for recovery and all bands to be seen. We're still unsure if this will become an annual event; the last thing we want is to become stale and predictable like so many other festivals, time shall tell, but in the meantime, we look forward to seeing everyone again in September!
Hells Headbangers was founded in 2000 in Cleveland, Ohio. The label's very first release was a split album between Spawn of Satan and Bloodsick. From those humble beginnings, Hells Headbangers slowly yet surely began their dominance of the metal underground, furthering the careers of such cult favorites as Inquisition, Midnight, Profanatica, Nunslaughter, Acid Witch, Cultes Des Ghoules, Deiphago, and Vomitor among others. With well over 500 releases to date, across a variety of formats - be they vinyl, CD, cassette, or even books - Hells Headbangers has been committed to the cause of vinyl from the very beginning, and the label has built a now-legendary reputation for creative 'n' collectible designs. However, the music comes first and foremost to the label, and Hells Headbangers has held an uncompromising position in unleashing only the darkest and most vile death metal, black metal, thrash, grind, and metalpunk as well as unearthing cult rarities from extreme metal's past. On top of that, the label runs one of the most exhaustive and in-demand mail-order services in the metal scene. "When you need metal, go to hell..."
