MIDLAND COUNTY - Heavy metal with Christian lyrics. It's probably two things you associate with each other.

But that's exactly what's happening this weekend.

It all takes place at Rock the Desert in Midland County, located across from the Midland International Airport on FM 1788.

The gates to the Christian musical festival are already open.

This is the very first time; they've had a heavy metal night.

We're told there's been a big demand for it.

On tap to play, bands named "I Am Terrified," "Demon Hunter" and "The Devil Wears Prada."

Tickets are $25.00 at the gate.

$20.00 in advance if you buy them at the Chik-Fil-A's in Midland and Odessa or at the Mardel Bookstore.
